Aug 24th 2014

Christ calls us to much more than Sunday mornings.

How would you define your faith? How would you define God? How does your understanding & knowledge of Him line up with Truth, what He has revealed of Himself in His Word?

Little Things

Matthew 25.14-30

Fuel, Flame & Fire

Jeremiah 20.9
Dec 30th 2012

Parenting With Praise

Deut 6.1-9, Ps 145.4
Sep 9th 2012

Jesus was clear, "No one can come unless the Father draws him." So even the most perfect parenting can't guarantee godliness in the lives of our children.

The Gospel of Marriage

Ep 5.22-32
Sep 2nd 2012

Are you married? Why? Are you sure that's the main reason you ought to have said 'I do'? What if the basis of your marriage isn't biblical at all?
