This Sunday we celebrate the first Sunday in Advent – Hope. We are just as in need of God’s hope today as the people of God were back then. One thing that is different is that we know God fulfilled His promises with Jesus and because of that we have everything to hope for inContinue reading “2021-11-28 Sermon – Hope”
This Sunday we look at the spiritual disciple of submission and how it can help us navigate the complex issues of our day. God’s word is alive and active and able to inform our way ahead at any time and so we must submit, first and foremost to His way and then let that influenceContinue reading “2021-11-21 Sermon – Submission”
This Sunday, we focus on another spiritual disciple – “Sabbath.” Instituted by God, Sabbath is something that should be of utmost important to us. It is a time to put God first and rest in His presence from our labours, worries and fears.
The Sunday we start a new sermon series on the spiritual disciplines. In recent weeks we have been covering Prayer and Self Denial and so it seemed appropriate to begin with prayer and prayer as the Lord Jesus taught us.
This week we look at the last theme of NZBMS’ Prayer and Self-Denial appeal, “The Mordecai Movement.” So very pertinent in our time I think. What injustices are we called to stand up for, for the sake of the Kingdom?
Just a quick note to say there will be no videos for the next two weeks as our video editor takes a break. This Sunday, we begin our engagement with NZBMS’s Prayer and Self-Denial appeal. The mission of God is all around us, but often we lose our focus on what God is doing andContinue reading “2021-10-03 Sermon – Prayer and Self Denial – Part One”
This Sunday we come to the end of our sermon series in 1 Peter where we see firefighters have a lot in common with Christian’s in the midst of fiery ordeals as Peter calls it. We look at how spiritual maturity and spiritual disciplines can help us to become strong and resilient in the faith.
This Sunday, we continue on with our sermon series in 1 Peter by looking at chapter four. Here we learn that all the sub-calls within our grand “call” to be a Christian result in a life lived for God. Stay tuned for an image filled look at what it means to live an embodied SpiritualContinue reading “2021-09-19 Sermon – Living for God”
This Sunday we continue in our sermon series in 1 Peter by looking at Chapter 3. Here Peter unpacks what behaviours aught to characterise Christian relationships as we move closer to Jesus.
Today we celebrated Rimutaka Baptist’s 60th Anniversary! God has been faithful and we are very grateful. The sermon is based on 1 Peter 1, where we read about the incredible Living Hope we have in Christ.
