Heavenly Minded – Earthly Intentional

The Christian life is a transformed life, starting with a renewed mind. Christ’s priorities become our priorities as our mind is more aligned with Christ’s.

Gather Together

Date 06th May 2018  by JK  Bible passage Hebrews 10:21-25

As a church, we have said that Gathering people to Christ is a central part of who we are and what we do as a Church. But why? Why can’t we just stream Jim’s message from the comfort of your homes? Why do we have to gather together as a church? In a modern society

Our Generous Father – Audacious Prayer

Date 06th May 2018  by Bill Bosker  Bible passage Luke 18:1-8; Luke 11:1-11

How bold are your prayers? Boldness in prayer is an uncomfortable thought for many. We think of speaking softly to God, humbling ourselves before God, or having a chat with God … but agonizing before God? Storming Heaven with prayers? Pounding on the door of the Most High? Wrestling with God? Isn’t such prayer irreverent?

He Gave His Only-Begotten Son

Date 22nd April 2018  by Mark Bensley  Bible passage John 3:11-21

Over against the war-scarred, sin-strangled world, let us reflect on the wonder of wonders in the text of texts. The measure of love is always its willingness to give; its capacity for sacrifice. In giving Christ, God gives us all things in Him. He leaves the throne of heaven for a stable in Bethlehem and

Date 15th April 2018  by KJ Tromp  Bible passage 2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 3:16-17
