Studies in Malachi
We as sinners are in desperate need of God’s intervention to deliver us from the wages of our sin which is death. “Lord, be merciful to me, a sinner!”
Staying Alive There I was, hanging upside down from a three story tree-house… I should have died. There I was, stabbed in the throat by my brother with puppet stick, drowning on my own blood. I should have died. There I was, flying through the air with my bike left 20 feet uphill behind a broken ramp.…
INTRODUCTION: Farmers possess a skill set that I appreciate, but I don’t possess. A farmer knows how to plant seeds and then nourish it into a bountiful harvest. Farmers are notoriously faithful and patient, because they plant seeds in the spring so that in summer and fall the can reap a harvest. Perhaps…

10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. 11 Cast me not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from me. 12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit. 13 Then I will teach transgressors your ways, and sinners will return…

Jesus the Living Word
Rev Stephen Thomas • Sermon • • 585 views • 24:59
Who are you, what are you doing? Confusion abounds when people don’t know who they are or what they are meant to be doing. We have all laughed off occasions when we can’t remember what we were meant to be doing or where we left something. Normally there is nothing more sinister to these occasions than…
Last week we left off in our study of John’s gospel with v. 18 18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him . And we asked ourselves this question, “what is John really claiming about Jesus?”. What does it mean that Jesus’ expressly…
New Year New Challenges
Introduction Perfect timing. We use this phrase often. If I walk into the house just as Jess was about to text me, perfect timing. If someone brings us something right as we were about to ask for it, perfect timing. The other day I saw a video of acrobats on a trapeze. As I watched them fly across empty…

Colossians recap Pauls Final Greetings 2 Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. 3 At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison— 4 that I may make it clear, which is…
The Book of Acts

Some people look like they have it all together. They have a good job, nice house, wonderful family. But they don't know Christ. We need to understand how that it is far more important to know Christ than to have it all together.
[Joshua] Moving In!
Christopher Campbell • Sermon • • 420 views
Sunday, November 1, 2020. Joshua 22:1-34 | "To Be A Witness." Israel built an altar for a unique purpose. This altar was not for worship, but to be a witness for their children. What does our worship today say to our children about Jesus?
Who Do You Say I Am?
Mike Measley • EFBC - Evangelical Free Bible Church • Sermon • • 386 views • 46:58
Conclusion of 'Who Do You Say I AM' Series. We have taken time to look at Who Jesus is. We have taken time to see He is God, come in the flesh to save us from our sin. We have looked at the promises of God for our life and Godliness, and found them pointing to Jesus. We have seen that He is our crucified, buried and resurrected Savior! We have looked at the significance of the resurrection. Now, what are we going to do with all of this? Who Do We say Jesus is? If it really is significant, will we be witnesses?
Today, we continue our study through the Gospel according to John. I encourage you to open your bibles if you have them, to chapter 1. The Title of the sermon today is, “A Voice for God”. As I thought of John’s ministry, and looking for a graphic, I came across this title idea. It made me think, John…
[Sermon on the Mount] Living the New Life!
Christopher Campbell • Sermon • • 359 views
Sunday, January 24, 2021. Matthew 5:13-16 | "Let Your Light Shine Before People." Whatever Jesus does personally in us, He does publicly through us. By the presence and power of the Holy Spirit, our new identity in Jesus makes us salt and light for people on earth, to the glory of God the Father!

Sunday, July 11, 2021. 1 Corinthians 6:1-11 | “Do Not Be Deceived.” The Church of God belongs to God. This makes Her distinct from any other assemblies found in the world! For this reason, the apostle comes down hard on the church in Corinth when their shameful actions confuse this distinction among themselves, and especially in the eyes of unbelievers in the world. Simply put, the church was deceived and their witness for Jesus as a consequence was lost! This text returns to a recurring theme of the Church’s identity in Christ, and ends with a powerful whisper of Gospel transformation and hope.
Gospel of John (2020)
John 13:31-38 ©Copyright June 27, 2021 by Rev. Bruce Goettsche When you share bad news with someone, a very common reaction is for a person to say (and sometimes scream), “No.” That initial response of denial is because we don’t want to believe (and at times we can’t immediately comprehend) those words.…
Graham Grove, Stephen Dunn, Malcolm Lithgow • Renew Church Gold Coast - Burleigh • Sermon • • 328 views • 38:50
How do Christians engage the culture around them? Are we called to stand against it? To fit completely into it? Or to transform it? These three models of interaction have been advocated by various groups over the centuries, but which one is best, or is there some other approach which governs how we interact with the world? Join Graham, Stephen, and Malcolm, along with the people of Renew, to explore this important, but complex topic.
Open Your Eyes What is my purpose? Have you ever ask? Why do we ask? Why do we need a purpose? We know there must be some reason I was put here. We have, inside of us from birth this deep need to have a purpose. I want to address our purpose today. Let me say to you, if you are asking the question, yes…
