Sermon – JesusWORKS: Who is Jesus?

JesusWORKS Flyer Image

JesusWORKS aims to introduce you to the Jesus of history by looking at his life, teaching and work. Primarily, it is for the person who wants to check out the claims of Jesus or the claims about Jesus – so that they can make up their own minds about him.

Yet, it is also for any Christian who wants to be prepared to give a reasoned answer for the hope that they have in the gospel of Jesus (1 Pet 3:15).

Jesus calls people to himself, yet he gives everyone the opportunity to examine him and his message before making that decision.who-is-jesus-0

In this second talk, we  seek to answer the question: Who is Jesus? – is he just a moral man, wise teacher, unfortunate martyr or could he in fact be the divine Lord?

Sermon – If loving, God why send people to hell? (Luke 16:19-31)

Hot Topics Graphic

‘Hell’ is a repulsive concept and the one thing that proponents and objectors both agree upon, it is that ‘hell’ is a place to be avoided.

In this talk we look at what the Bible says about ‘hell’. It is real, people really are going there – but there is someone who really doesn’t want you there.

Sermon – Aren’t All Religions the Same? (Acts 17:1-34/John 14:1-6)

Hot Topics Graphic

It is not unusual for all religions to be lumped into the same basket and dismissed collectively. Yet, even a cursory reading of the core texts of any religion will expose clear differences. What does Christianity offer that might helpfully encourage a person to look more deeply into the truths that the Bible reveals?

Sermon – Gospel Future and Glory (Romans 15:13-16:27)

Romans 9-16 Slide

The Letter to the Romans is a rich treasure trove for an Christian. In this talk we come to the end of the letter. Good theology has been put into practice. So to close the letter, the Apostle Paul wants the church in Rome (and by extension, Christians to today) to be ministers of Christ Jesus – in prayer, in partnership, in proclaiming the gospel where it is not known.

Christians have ever reason to boldly live out the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Sermon – Living Loving Sacrifice: service (Romans 14-15)

Romans 9-16 Slide

True worship shows itself in acceptance and service. In this talk we consider a Christian should approach others whom they might be tempted to look down upon. Our world does it, Christians shouldn’t.
