"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 

Welcome 11 July 2021

For I consider that the
sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is
to be revealed to us. For the creation waits with eager longing for the
revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly,
but because of him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be
set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of
the children of God. For we know that the whole creation has been groaning
together in the pains of childbirth until now. And not only the creation, but
we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait
eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.

Rom 8:18-23

 

Greetings fellow Saints. What
hope this passage gives us in times of tremendous suffering!  But these sufferings are nothing in comparison
to what is in store for His children!  Hallelujah!


Blessings,

Mark

Welcome 4 July 2021

the word of God is not bound – 2 TImothy 2:9
Paul was chained from ministry, but the Gospel message he preached wasn't. 
It is God's power for salvation, and like lockdown it powerfully interrupts human lives – but instead of despair, it brings Hope. If you're frustrated yet again by lockdown and want to give up, take hold of the one thing that can never be locked down. God's Word teaches us that our world is confined to decay and futility, by the Will of God, in the certain hope, that One Day it will be liberated into a New Heavens and Earth. 
Appreciate what God is doing and serve Him with all your heart. Build yourself up in faith, encourage your Christian friends and family, and call all to seek the One Saviour who will bring us into His Kingdom.
Welcome to God's plan

Welcome 27 June 2021

"Declare and present your case; let them take counsel together!
Who told this long ago? Who declared it old? Was it not I, the LORD? 
And there is no other god besides me, a righteous God and a Savior; there is none besides me. “Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth!
For I am God, and there is no other. By myself I have sworn; from my mouth has gone out in righteousness a word that shall not return: To me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear allegiance
". – Isaiah 45:21-23
Greetings Church Family,
There is no one who can argue or reason against God, proving He is the only true God. It was only Him, who foretold Judah's captivity as well as their deliverance. Considering that there is no other God, there is then no other God that saves. Through the precious blood of Jesus Christ, we are blessed to be here today, knowing the one true God, knowing the one true Saviour. In time, every knee will bow; willingly or unwillingly. But for us, as His forgiven children, we are able to bow in appreciation, in adoration, in worship, today and forevermore.
Amen. 
Regards

Matthew 

Welcome 13 June 2021

Blessed be the God and
Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us
to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from
the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept
in heaven for you, who by God's power are being guarded through faith for a
salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. In this you rejoice, though
now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials,
so that the tested genuineness of your faith
—more
precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to
result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

1Pe 1:3-7

 

Greetings brothers and sisters.  What beautiful words these are from the
Apostle Peter.  Join us today as we worship
the living God and learn more about Him through the preaching of the Word.

 

Blessings,

Mark
