Sermons on “Luke”
With the arrival of the Wise Men Jesus is revealed as king. And, as Jesus is revealed through the resurrection, we receive the revelation that we too will be changed to be like him. The corruptible will be swallowed up by the incorruptible.View Sermon
We believe that Scripture, understood through the person of Jesus, should be at the centre of who we are and what we are to do. By doing this we ensure that we remain kingdom focused (Luke 24:27; 2 Timothy 3:16–17).
Am I truly placing God’s word at the centre of my life and ministry daily?
Prayer is every believer’s responsibility and awesome privilege. More than ever in Canada’s short history, does our nation need a praying Church. Not necessarily just more of what we are already doing, but there’s more to prayer than we have pursued. Church needs to step into the “more”… There is a promise that continues to be relevant today though it was given at the dedication of Solomon’s temple: “if My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).View Sermon

Christmas isn’t a Hallmark card, it’s an alarm bell to the world that things are not as they should be while at the same moment extremely good news because God has broken in and is with us.View Sermon
For many of us when we hear the word ‘hell’ we conjure up images of deep cavernous pits full of fire, brimstone, suffering souls and devils. On the other hand when we hear the word ‘heaven’ we think of spacious skies filled with happy people and angels. Without denying that the Bible speaks of heaven and hell, we recognize that these ways of thinking about those destinations sometimes blind us to the fact that heaven and hell are ways we choose to live today; life with or without God and life lived in a way that is humanizing or dehumanizing. In short, all kinds of people — both Christian and non —choose to live out a hell on earth. This series is meant to help us see the classical areas when we might be choosing life apart from God and invite us into the life of the resurrection (heaven).View Sermon
