Sermons on John

Angels

Peter Faulkner took us on a journey through the Bible to hear the references to angels and how we should view and interact with them. They are “ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation” [Hebrews 1:14] . We should not actively seek them or pray to them – we pray directly to…

Discouragement

Our God is gracious, compassionate, and merciful and ready to meet us in our fears and discouragements. Preaching about the life of the prophet Elijah, with a focus on one of the prophet’s most difficult moments, Peter Faulkner showed us how faithful God is and how He cares for those who are downcast and worn…

A balanced diet

With some beautiful stories and examples, Dan Eze exhorted us to maintain a “balanced diet” of the spiritual and the physical. Jesus can bring physical sustenance and economic wellbeing, but more importantly He gives spiritual sustenance and wellbeing of the soul.

The Gate for the Sheep

Easter 2021

In our Easter celebration, Jaap Haasnoot explored the difference that Easter makes to our world. Focusing on Mary Magdalene weeping at the tomb, we celebrate with her as she realizes that Jezus has been resurrected. We have hope because there has been Easter. We live in a world that has seen Easter, and that changes…

The Grain of Wheat

Focusing our attention on the parable of the grain of wheat that dies in order to produce many seeds (found in John 12), Peter explored what this means for us. The self-giving love demonstrated by Jesus is our model and to trust Jesus as Lord, serve Him as our King, and allow Him to be…
