Jesus' Manifesto

Jesus' Manifesto

We are called to do justice in the anointing and empowering of the Holy Spirit. We are called to demonstrate the total transformation that Jesus declared: freedom for the prisoners, recovery of sight for the blind and the oppressed to be set free. Taking insights from Jesus’ manifesto in Luke 4, this sermon looks at the how, who and what of the Church’s mission to do justice.

When God Hates Our Worship

When God Hates Our Worship

This sermon is a call to true worship and shows how we love God by also loving people. Drawing on lessons from the Old Testament book of Amos, we see that if our religion is not connected with real, practical concern for the poor, downtrodden, marginalised and forgotten, then it is valueless in God’s sight. Be inspired by this passionate call to do justice and learn about the Church’s responsibility to change the world.

Blessed Are Those Who Are Persecuted

Blessed Are Those Who Are Persecuted

This sermon takes us to the summit of the Beatitudes: we discover that those who follow Christ will be blessed by God and hated by the world. We tend to associate suffering with God’s displeasure but here in this final beatitude we see that the highest level of anointing is reserved for those who are persecuted for Christ. When you appreciate what the Bible has to say about persecution, you can rejoice when you are persecuted for the sake of Jesus because something will be yours on account of your suffering, that would not have been yours otherwise; this sermon tells you what that something is.


Blessed Are the Peacemakers

A Divine Operation

A Divine Operation

Sometimes we forget that evangelism is not a human enterprise but a divine operation. In this message our guest speaker Mark Greenwood, the Elim National Evangelist, reminds us that evangelism is a God idea: as we do our bit God will do His.

Blessed Are the Pure In Heart

Blessed Are the Pure In Heart

It is possible to live a divided life: when we don’t give ourselves totally to sin but we don’t give ourselves totally to God either. This sermon shows that a happy person is a holy person - a person with a clean heart and an undivided heart. We learn that being pure in heart means pursuing daily cleansing and making the pursuit of God’s glory the chief passion of our lives; when we live in this way we discover that it is possible to see God in quite a remarkable way in the here and now.


Blessed Are the Merciful

Blessed Are the Merciful

Although there is freedom in Christ, the unmerciful Christian is unable to walk in the full experience of this. This sermon exhorts us to examine our hearts and our actions so that mercy pervades our daily lives and we can receive the new mercies of God every morning. You will see that the biblical language for mercy implies both practical compassion for those in need, as well as forgiveness for those who have done wrong, and you will be inspired to pursue these in your life.

Courage In Obedience

Courage In Obedience
