The Soft-Natured Defender of Justice

Date 26th November 2017  by KJ Tromp  Bible passage Isaiah 42:1-9

Thank You

Date 26th November 2017  by  Bible passage Philippians 1:1-11

As we come to the end of another big year in the church I think it is only fitting that we show our appreciation for each of you in the congregation. There are times when we are guilty of taking you for granted. Like most churches, we’ve seen our share of highs and lows over

Glory to God Alone

Date 19th November 2017  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Romans 11:33-36

Today we will look at the final sola of the Reformation, the one that sums up the point of all the others. While the Reformers were well able to summarize their distinctive teaching into neat phrases, they were mindful to keep in focus the goal of it all, the glory of God. In our text

Do the Right Thing

Date 12th November 2017  by John van Dijk  Bible passage Daniel 1:3-14

In Daniel 1 we read about Daniel and his friends, and how they take a stand for their faith, but they do it in a way that’s maybe different than what we think of when we hear that phrase “take a stand for Jesus.” They do it so graciously that other people are just kind

Grace Alone: God’s Free Gift

Date 12th November 2017  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Ephesians 2:1-10

What’s your reaction to the phrase, ‘God wants bad people in heaven?’ Do you think’ ‘Isn’t it he good people who go to heaven?’ Trying to understand these two phrases forms the basis of the Reformation cry, ‘Grace Alone’. If grace means, ‘We owe everything to God’, what part do I play in my salvation.

Comfort in a World of Chaos

Date 05th November 2017  by Ryan Hemelaar  Bible passage Isaiah 51 : 1 - 8

Increasingly as the world becomes more hostile to Christianity and the values we hold dear, it is easy for us to become fearful and discouraged. In the Old Testament, Israel went through similar experiences, but in Isaiah 51 we see an encouragement from the Lord on why we don’t need to give up or give

This morning is a very important and special occasion in the life of the church. We are ordaining and installing elders to serve and to shepherd this congregation.

We all love a good story. A good story can be retold over and over again and it never gets boring. A good movie can be watched again because the story captivates you. As we continue with the account of the 10 plagues in Exodus we get to the story of the locust plague that

Do Justice

Date: 25 November 2012, 09:11 by aiims

Do you ‘Do Justice’? This is not asking whether you want justice, but whether you act justly. Just think for a moment about how mad you got when somebody treated you unfairly. I’m sure you all have a story to tell and you might still get angry just thinking about it. God says…get that angry…not
