God's Will - For You!
In 2 Timothy 3:16&17 the apostle Paul lists the things we gain from scripture – doctrine, reproof, correction and instruction in righteousness. Why do we need these four things? In order to become thoroughly equipped for every good work.
Our sermons are expository – they explain and apply scripture.

The Acts of the Apostles
In the Gospel that bears his name, Luke wrote about all that Jesus began both to do and teach. In the book of Acts Luke continues the story of what Jesus continued to do and teach, through his apostles, by the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit. At the outset, starting on the first Day of Pentecost after Jesus’s resurrection, the Church is born as a result of the filling of the Holy Spirit. Immediately, the gospel is preached and thousands of people respond by repenting, believing and being baptised. God’s intention always was that the church would become a global phenomenon – which it has! Acts records the beginnings of that development and has much to teach us about God’s programme for the individual and for the world.
Paul's letter to the Philippians
Paul’s letter to the Philippians was written while Paul was in Rome, chained to two soldiers. It is full of Christ, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.
74 Sermons on the Book of Genesis
A good understanding of the book of Genesis is fundamental for the Christian. Covering some 2,000 years, from the creation to the arrival of the Israelites in Egypt, Genesis reveals the world as originally created ‘very good’ by God, but spoiled by the entrance of sin. Spoiled but not lost – because even before the first human sin God had a plan in place to rescue and restore. First promised in 3:15, immediately after Adam and Eve rebelled, God’s plan takes a more concrete shape with the call of Abram and unfolds as his descendants through Isaac and Jacob increase in number. Again and again in Genesis, see the grace of God in action, bringing his plan to pass through people, despite their failures and inconsistencies.
