Welcome – 10 October 2021

Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart, since you have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God; for “All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls, but the word of the Lord remains forever.” And this word is the good news that was preached to you.

 1Pe 1:22-25

Greetings fellow saints of the Lord Most High. God has redeemed us and washed us clean with the precious blood of Christ.  We have been given a new life by the Word of God, therefore we should love one another earnestly from a pure heart.

Join us today as we dig deeper into His Word and hear the good news being preached!

Blessings,Mark

Welcome 3 October 2021

But you
must remember, beloved, the predictions of the apostles of our Lord Jesus
Christ. They said to you,
“In the
last time there will be scoffers, following their own ungodly passions.” It is
these who cause divisions, worldly people, devoid of the Spirit. But you,
beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy
Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord
Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life. And have mercy on those who doubt;
save others by snatching them out of the fire; to others show mercy with fear,
hating even the garment stained by the flesh.

                                                                                                                                                  Jud
1:17-23

Greetings Saints of the Lord most
high.  In a world full of division and
distrust, we the Church must have a spirit of unity.  Join us today as we delve deeper into God’s
word, as we sing His praises, and grow together.


Blessings,

Mark

For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was sapped as in the heat of summer. 
Selah

Then I acknowledged my sin to you and did not cover up my iniquity. I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the LORD"– and you forgave the guilt of my sin. 

Selah 
(Psalm 32:4-5)
God is faithful to press his heavy hand on us when we harbour any sin. Such a loving Father, who disciplines his children for their benefit! And His intention is clear: to Forgive our Guilt. This is the incredible Grace of God in Jesus. The absolute removal of our debt, by the Eternal payment of Jesus at His crucifixion.
Let's not take lightly the "kind" suffering of God's heavy hand, nor God's faithful determination to free us from sin, nor Christ's full and final payment

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.
Hebrews 10:23‭-‬25
Welcome Church Family
It has been a great encouragement to witness the dedication of this body to corporate worship. The commited gathering of the saints during these times is evidence of Spirit filled lives. For this we should all be thankful that the Lord continues to have his way in our hearts. We are to be grateful as He draws us together in one body, through His Spirit, under the headship of Christ, for the purpose of His Glory and eternal kingdom. How blessed we are through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Welcome 5 September 2021

… the church, of which I
became a minister according to the stewardship from God that was given to me
for you, to make the word of God fully known, the mystery hidden for ages and
generations but now revealed to his saints. To them God chose to make known how
great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is
Christ in you, the hope of glory. Him we proclaim, warning everyone and
teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in
Christ. For this I toil, struggling with all his energy that he powerfully
works within me.

Col 1:24-29

 

 

Greetings fellow saints. 
Join us today as we delve deeper into God’s Word and toil to make God’s
word fully known, to this generation and for the ones to come.

Blessings,

Mark

Welcome – 29 August 2021

The LORD is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him
The LORD is the strength of his people; 
he is the saving refuge of his anointed.. Psalm 28:7-8

Unprecedented strain is upon the world that some even expect we are on the verge of "end-times tribulation". Burdens seem to be increasing faster than the efforts of relief – wars, pandemic, weather and evil. For the Christian, though, there remains a deep stillness through it all. Our strength, protection, help, joy and refuge is not found in anything from this crumbling creation – but in the Creator.

We are "the anointed" people of God – He has set His affections on us, and determined to deliver us to Himself. Keep your eyes on the LORD!

Welcome 19 August 2021

"Now we who are strong ought to bear the weaknesses of those without strength and not just please ourselves. Each of us is to please his neighbor for his good, to his edification. For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, "THE REPROACHES OF THOSE WHO REPROACHED YOU FELL ON ME." For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. Now may the God who gives perseverance and encouragement, grant you to be of the same mind with one another according to Christ Jesus, so that with one accord you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, accept one another, just as Christ also accepted us to the glory of God". – Romans 15:1-7

Dearest Church Family
Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour, is our perfect example of how we should strengthen others and live to the Glory of God. We are blessed even further by having the scriptures instructing and encouraging us to live a life pleasing to God. Paul urges us all to pursue unity. With one mind, with one voice, the purpose of unity is to Glorify God and Him alone. By faith in Jesus Christ and all that He has done for us through His life, death and resurrection, our unity with Him; let us sing Glory to our God, in unity.
In Christ Alone
Matthew

Welcome 08 August 2021

For as in one body we
have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we,
though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.
Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them:
if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one
who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one
who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does
acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.

Rom 12:4-8

 

Greetings in the matchless name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus
Christ.  What a compelling reminder from
the Apostle that we members of the same body, each been given gift(s) to serve
one another and the Kingdom.  Let us not
forget who we ultimately serve – the Servant King who humbled Himself, for our
sakes!

God bless,

Mark

Welcome – 1 August 2021

The seasons continue; The darkest day is gone and the sun rises a little earlier every dawn. This reminds us of God's inner thought in Genesis 8:22

Never again will I curse the ground because of man, even though every inclination of his heart is evil from his youth. And never again will I destroy all living creatures as I have done,

As long as the earth endures,
seedtime and harvest,
cold and heat,
summer and winter,
day and night
shall never cease.
For all the uncertainty in our world, every dawn is a reminder of God's certain providence. While we wait for our Lord to Return and Restore, While we persevere under injutice, turmoil and fear, pleading Him to banish every cause and effect of evil, Look daily at the rising Sun and remember His Providence.
Will He, who spared not His Only Son but gave Him up for us all, not richly provide us with all things, along with Him?! Rest in Him.

Welcome 25 July 2021

"You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet. “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven". Matthew 5:13-16


Dearest Church Family
It has been a tough and worrying time for many of us. However, the truth is, Christians, living under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and in obedience to Christ, will inevitably influence the world for good; as salt has a positive influence on the flavor of the food it seasons. In the same way we are light in the darkness. Where there is strife, we are to be peacemakers; where there is sorrow, we are to be the ministers of Christ, binding up wounds, and where there is hatred, we are to exemplify the love of God in Christ, returning good for evil. It is when we depart from the Spirit-led lifestyle of genuine discipleship that the distinctions between ourselves and the rest of the world become blurred and our testimony is hindered. Only by remaining focused on Christ and being obedient to Him can we expect to remain salt and light in the world. Let us draw near to Him this morning, desiring His kingdom, desiring His kingship.

In Christ 

Matthew
