Jesus promised he would be with us until the end of the world (Matthew 28:20). Jesus said he would be with us forever, giving us strength and life (John 14:15-21). Jesus came to the earth and dwelt among us for only 33 years. Although he went back to Heaven, His presence is still with us today. Therefore, we have hope through his...

God’s plan for Elisha was revealed in Elijah’s darkest moment. God was correcting the course of Israel and his plan included a new prophet to speak to both kings and citizens.

When Jesus moves in His Church, something will be lit! Peter and Cornelius were as different as two men could be. But their dedication to God was solid and common. Peter had to overcome his prejudice to fulfill the Great Commission of Jesus: Go into ALL THE WORLD. Because of Peter's obedience, we are given a clear example of Jesus'...

When Jesus moves in His Church, something will be lit! Do you believe that Jesus can change lives completely? In Acts 9:19-31 we follow up the story of Saul, one of the destroyers of The Church. Jesus used His followers and the Holy Spirit to radically change Saul's life.

When Jesus moves in his church, something will be ignited. Acts 6:8 - 8:3 - The Church was still new, many new things were happening and things were going generally well. There was favour in the community around them. A powerful, wise, Holy Spirit-filled man named Stephen brought a message to those who wouldn’t believe in Jesus and it was too...

Forward in Power – Acts 3 – 4:22 The power of Jesus working through the believers in healing, in preaching the Word of God and in standing up for their faith in Christ. This same power is still available to us. It changes our lives and brings attention to Christ and His Church.

Birthday of the Church!! The Day of Pentecost, Acts 2. When did THE CHURCH actually begin? The day of Pentecost. Jesus made sure it began with a bang! The Holy Spirit came charging in with a roar and the Church of Jesus began a forward march that even the very gates of Hell and all evil forces cannot withstand.

He is talked about all through the Bible and we see him all over the place. He is part of the Trinity – God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Yet Francis Chan calls him the "forgotten God." Who is the Holy Spirit? We feel a little uncomfortable partly because we just don’t understand God. The...
