Sermon – Jesus Said…What!?: I AM The Way, The Truth and The Life (John 14:1-14)

As a society, we have become somewhat immune to hearing outrageous claims. They are issued, capture some newsworthy attention, and then are fairly quickly ignored or pushed aside. Jesus issued some outrageous claims, in fact, claims that were far beyond what we hear today. In this Bible Talk series, we look at the “I AM…” statements from the gospel of John. Newsworthy – yes. Ignored – yes. Pushed aside – yes. Yet, to look into them we will see the glory of God in the person of Jesus Christ. It would be to our loss to be immune.

This talk investigates one of Jesus’ boldest claims – he is the way, he is the truth, he is the life. Jesus invites us into his Father’s house with plenty of rooms – the best house we could ever imagine.

Sermon – Are You Ready To Meet Your Maker? (Romans 8:1-17)

Some people see Christianity as a gamble. If we are wrong about Jesus, we simply live a good life. If we are right about Jesus, everything changes. We aren’t condemned, we have life and peace, and we are co-heirs with Jesus Christ.

The message of this Bible talk is simple – turn to Jesus, and accept him as Lord and Saviour.

Sermon – New Beginnings: Two Births, One Life (John 3:1-21)

The Gospel of John introduces Jesus and gives him an extraordinary array of titles. Jesus does not disappoint. His teaching, his interactions, his miracles and his knowledge give those who meet him cause to question who he is – and as readers we also can look at these ‘encounters’ and decide for ourselves whether Jesus is worth another look. Perhaps a new beginning for a new year.

This talk explores the new life that Jesus offers, and how we can also have this new life Jesus offers us.

Sermon – Faith That Works: Crown of Suffering (James 1:1-18)

Imagine being the younger brother of Jesus Christ. Always following in the footsteps of the glory child!! James is refreshingly matter of fact and down to earth. As we read the letter by James, we read his concern that those following Jesus don’t only listen, but actually walk in his footsteps. For him righteousness matters, and it is the practical righteousness that you can hear in the words and see in the actions of the follower of Jesus that really counts. This talk explores perseverance in faith.

Sermon – JesusWORKS: How does the Resurrection relate to life?

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.

This talk addresses the perception that Christianity is all about keeping rules and commandments and is rather more about the relationship that is possible with God.
