Reconciliation

• September 13th, 2016

Since God loved us while we were still his enemies, we ought to love others, reconciling with our enemies. 

This sermon will explore the nature of reconciliation in Christ and the practice we ought to do as a church. We live in a broken world, and sadly, too often Churches have contributed to division in the world.

Creation Care

• August 30th, 2016

We have done a terrible job as humans taking care of the planet. This reminds us of our falleness and frailty. As our civilization becomes more advanced with near  god-like power, we are reminded all the more that we are just sinful humans. We make terrible gods. 

This sermon looks at how caring for creation is a call we have as people made in God's image, who know him as creator.

Finding Hope

• August 5th, 2016

Hope is more than a psychological crutch in the life of the Christian. It is real; it is living; it changes us.

We will see that Christian hope, God's hope for us, confronts and comforts not to shield us from the facts of life, but when we are in the midst of it. We will look at Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham, Joseph, Moses, and Job as examples of people who lived with hopelessness and hope.

All this brings us to Christ, our true hope, and the future he has planned for us. As we walk with him, we will have hope. So, this sermon will end with practical ways we can confront hopelessness, understanding how it is caused, and living in hopefulness.

Faith Beyond Belief

• July 29th, 2016

"Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen" - Heb. 11:1

Faith is an often misunderstood concept. In the secular world, it is equated with the will to belief or believing in yourself. In Christian circles it is often misunderstood to mean your entire theology (as if your theology saves you!) or a sense of certainy and obsession with being right.

Faith in Scripture is deeper than this. It is trust in things unseen. It is simple trust in Christ and his Gospel, not a belief in your brain but a trust in one's walk. It is part and parcel with obedience and justice, new life and hope.

Love at the Centre

• July 22nd, 2016

What is love? There are any forms, but Christians hold to a central type: love that is sacrificial love. God is love. God is in Jesus Christ, and therefore, God loves us when we think we don't deserve to be loved.

This sermon will explore the reasons why love is central to who we are as humans, who God is, and who we are as Christians.

Grace Takes Practice

• July 13th, 2016

We are beginning a new series on the practices of the Christian faith. We will look at virtues like love, faith, hope, peace, thanksgiving, etc. Then we will move onto personal disciplines like Bible reading, prayer, solitude, fasting, etc. Then, finally, going into disciplines like worship, fellowship, service, and sharing the gospel. It should be an exciting series.

In this inaugural sermon for the series "Grace takes Practice," we are going to look at the relationship of obedience, action, and practice to faith. Most Christians have two misconceptions: (1) Either faith means we don't do anything for our faith or (2) we fall into an obsession with obedience where God's love becomes conditional. So, in this sermons we will talk about those two misconceptions and emphasize that God wants a new life for us and that means living that relationships daily with him.

The Gentle Servant - Brad Jersak

• October 29th, 2015

Brad Jersak was our guest this week with an amazing day of teaching on his book, Her Gates Will Never Be Shut. Sunday he shared with us a word of encouragement from Isaiah 42, which is on the gentleness of the servant of God. This servant is Jesus and he calls his church to have his spirit in a broken world.

God is Waiting

• October 29th, 2015

"Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you" says Isaiah 30:18. God waits to be gracious to us while we so often impatiently seek and trust the wrong things. In this sermon, we will explore what sorts of things people were doing that had  God simply waiting for them to let his grace in.

Give Me A Sign!

• September 24th, 2015

How many of us have looked out and asked God for a sign? Some of us have seen powerful things; others of us have been disappointed. But what if God has already given us a perfect sign for all time? Here in Isaiah 7, God gives the sign of the "Immanuel" to an evil king, Ahaz. The Immanuel, "God with us," is prophecy that was ultimately fulfilled in Jesus. Some of us ignore the signs of God around us. Others of us look for signs in all the wrong places: in astrology and false religion. God gave us Jesus. He is the only sign that does not disappoint us.

God is King!

• September 17th, 2015

As we meditate through the beautiful vision Isaiah is given of God, the King, in his temple throne, worshipped by mighty angels, we are overcome with the King's splendour. Knowing God is king means he is king when human governments fail. He is an awesome and mighty king, who reveals that we are sinners, but in whom we find forgiveness. If we take up Isaiah's calling, we have a grim duty to faithfulness in the face of stubbornness of the nation, but God calls us to faithfulness and hope.
