Acts 14:21-28. After Paul, Barnabas and their team completed their tour of Asia Minor, they returned to all the places they had been and reinforced the churches: praying with, teaching, warning and encouraging them. They established leadership teams and helped strengthen the work that had begun. God has called us to reinforce our churches with prayer, the Word of God...

Bob & Trudy McLaughlin of Salvation Today Ministries are with us this morning to make us ask and answer the question: "Why Should I Blend In When I Can and Should Stand Out?" God is working all around the world, but he works through all kinds of people, including us!

When the Good News of Jesus is proclaimed, there are two reactions: accept or reject. No one can sit on the fence. If you really listen to the message you will hear and find the Truth. If you choose to not listen and hear what you want to hear, you will reject Life. Are you listening? Read Acts 13:13-52

Commitment to Bless One Another. Romans 12:9-16. God has given each one of us gifts, which we use with humility to honour God and benefit others. The question is, what does the "benefit others" look like? Blessing one another is an expression of love and it is shown in our relationships with others in the church and community. It means...

Commitment to serve one another. Romans 12:6-8. Based on true worship and our humility, we take the gifts God has given us and we use them to serve one another in the church and the community. We make a commitment to learn, develop and practice for the glory of God and the benefit of others. Each of the gifts listed...

Now that God has saved our souls, what is the next step? Our bodies and our minds. Worship is about God. Worship is giving ourselves completely to God and His way. Pastor Bill Ehlers is our guest speaker this Sunday as he helps us see what true worship is based on Romans 12:1-2.

We are so pleased to partner with Voice of the Martyrs Canada once again to learn about and pray for persecuted Christians around the world. There are many countries where people have been imprisoned and killed for their faith in Jesus. It is illegal to even be a Christian. Please join us not just to be educated, but to consider...

Hebrews 10:23-25: This is the traditional thought: “Good Christians never miss church. If you miss church you are in sin because church is for your growth and learning and you’ll end up suffering.” According to the Bible, when we habitually neglect getting together as believers, the whole body suffers. It’s far more than getting together on Sunday. The...
By Uwe Betzing on June 18, 2017
One doesn't need the title of pastor to teach the Bible and challenge us to follow Jesus. God has called and equipped people to do His work in many ways. Uwe is a financial counselor and a graphic artist. But his life is defined by his relationship to Jesus Christ. He has been equipped to teach others in order to...

Acts 12:1-19. The Church that Jesus had established was growing by leaps and bounds. Despite brutal opposition, the numbers and dedication of the followers of Jesus was growing beyond control. King Herod decided it was time to cut off the head of this "monster" that plagued him and the Jewish religious leaders. He killed the apostle, pastor and leader James...

Acts 11:25-30. As the church grew beyond the borders of Israel, God ignited encouragement in the hearts of the followers of Jesus. They didn't just take care of one another in Antioch, they willingly gave their help and encouragement to those far away who were in need. We are a family in The Church. Every follower of Jesus, every "Christian",...

Communion. The Lord's Supper. The Last Supper. We have practiced this in some form or another in every Christian church since The Church began back in Acts 2. It was commanded by Jesus. Sometimes we get caught in the trap of following a tradition without really knowing what it is about. We do the "What" very well, but forget about the ...
