A New Name

Date 19th February 2012  by Johann Eloff - Pastor for Mansfield Christian Reformed Church  Bible passage Genesis 32:22-31

Johann explores Jacob’s struggle with God, receiving his new name Israel and his subsequent change in character. We too have a new name; Christian. What does that mean for us?

Praying Persistently

Date 12th February 2012  by Ryan Hemelaar - Operation 513 Leader  Bible passage Luke 18:1-8

Sometimes it can be easy to give up praying about an issue when it doesn’t seem like anything is happening. Jesus tells a parable in Luke 18:1-8 illustrating the secret of praying persistently. Come along this Sunday evening as we look into this and unpack God’s word together.  

The Serious Side of Child’s Play

Date 12th February 2012  by Ray Rus  Bible passage Mathew 21:16

Much of our thinking about how we relate children is “one way traffic”; what we as adults do for them. Do children, though, have a ministry to adults? How does God use children to be a blessing to us? What does it take to receive? What happens when we don’t?

Jesus, Hope of the World

Date 05th February 2012  by Jim de Witte - Pastor for Dandenong CRC  Bible passage Isaiah 42:1-9

The question of who Jesus is and what he came to do is not only a question that is around today, but has been around from the day he was born. It was a question that Matthew was attempting to answer in his gospel. He quotes from the book of Isaiah to show that one

God is Love

Date 05th February 2012  by Jim de Witte - Pastor for Dandenong CRC  Bible passage 1 John 4:7-21

We can quote the phrase ‘God is Love’ but so what? What does it mean, how is it seen and how is it understood and lived out?

God’s Promises Sealed

Date 29th January 2012  by Ryan Hemelaar - Operation 513 Leader  Bible passage Ephesians 1:3-14

In the uncertain times that we are living in, it is easy to forget who is in charge and that He has a plan. It is even easy to forget the many ways He has poured out blessings upon us. The Apostle Paul begins his letter to the Ephesians reminding the Church about the amazing

Beyond Good and Evil – NO SERMON

Date 22nd January 2012  by Greg Tenni - Elder  Bible passage Genesis 2:15-3:7

This morning we want to look at that moment in time when everything went horribly wrong for humanity. In the midst of paradise, a seemingly harmless suggestion leads to a desire to be-come rulers of our own destiny, independent from God. But then, as now, our craving for superior knowledge and individual greatness only destroys

Growing the Kingdom

Date 15th January 2012  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage 2 Timothy 3:10 - 4:8

Growing the Kingdom

Date 08th January 2012  by Keith Warren  Bible passage Colossians 3:1-17

In 2 Peter 3:18 God’s people are told that they are to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. We looked at that verse in two evening services in October and November, and this morning I want to combine some of the main things that we saw in the

From the Cradle to the Cross

Date 25th December 2011  by Keith Warren  Bible passage Matthew 2:13-18

With all the positive sides that there are to Christmas, we must realize that not everyone was pleased with this miracle: Immanuel, God with us! Jesus had to face persecution very soon after He was born; King Herod wanted Him out of the way. But he failed. And Jesus continued on another 33 years of

In Vain?

Date: 27 January 2019, 10:01 by Load Audio & Video

“Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labour in vain.” So begins psalm 127. But what does that mean for us? Does it mean we shouldn’t try? Does it mean we need a special word from God before we do anything? How can one live with this principle in mind? That is what we

What is a Disciple?

Date: 03 February 2019, 10:02 by Load Audio & Video

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

Licence to Sin?

Date: 03 March 2019, 10:03 by Load Audio & Video

Last week Pastor Jono spoke about how Christ has set us free and so we are to see ourselves as dead to sin and alive to God. We were challenged to not go back to the slums, nor live like we are still part of it. Paul is continuing this train of thought, again, asking

Redemption’s Song

Date: 27 January 2019, 18:01 by Load Audio & Video

The person who stands amazed at God’s willingness to forgive understands their own sinfulness and the extent of God’s ‘unfailing love’. That’s the Christian message of hope. There is hope for the hurting; there is hope for the hopeless; there is hope for the sinner. When you cry out for mercy, the Lord will hear
