Upside-down Values

Date 24th February 2019  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Matthew 5:1-12

The Sermon on the Mount has been described as the greatest message ever given…by the greatest preacher. The wisest words ever spoken…by the wisest person who ever lived.

Before Jesus returned to heaven he gave his disciples a mission, ‘go into all nations and make disciples.’ This was a mission they passed onto those new disciples and therefore onto us.

Discipleship – Growing Together

Date 10th February 2019  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Ephesians 4:11-13; Hebrews 10:19-25

What is a Disciple?

Date 03rd February 2019  by Jono Deenick  Bible passage Matthew 28:16-20; 16:21-28

What is a disciple? Why would we even want to use that word? It’s not a common one in Australia. The reality is the word disciple helps to capture what it means to be a follower of Jesus. It’s easy, in a way (though perhaps unpopular) to slap the label ‘Christian’ on ourselves, but what

Torn Between the Old and the New

Over the last two weeks we have seen that, having been rescued from sin, a should not go on deliberately living in sin. We have been set free from after all. But, have we? If we are honest that is not our daily experience. In￾deed we often find ourselves doing things we know are wrong.
