Because He Lives

Because He Lives

Without the resurrection of Jesus there is no salvation and there is no hope - but because He lives, we can truly live too, both now and forevermore. Discover why we can have confidence in the historicity of the biblical claims about Jesus rising from the dead and learn about the profound implications of the resurrection for each of us today.

This Changes Everything

This Changes Everything

This Easter Sunday sermon highlights some of the staggering consequences of the resurrection: the resurrection proves Jesus is who He said He is; it shows He has the power He claimed to have; it means that He will do everything He says He will do. Because He was raised from the dead, Jesus can redeem our past, fix our brokenness and make us right with God; He can give us power to live in the present and courage to withstand persecution, problems and pain; and if that wasn't enough, He can give us hope and a future in heaven. 

 

This is the video that Pastor Dominic refers to in the sermon about the evidence for the resurrection:

Hosanna

Hosanna

Jesus arrived into Jerusalem on that first Palm Sunday coming not in might but in humility, coming not to overthrow but to lay down his life. He came to defeat the power of sin, He came to trample death, He came so we could have a relationship with God and live in eternity with Him. And like those first disciples the only right response can be for us to cry "Hosanna!".

Three Crosses

Three Crosses

Usually, and rightly so, when we think of the events of Good Friday we focus on that middle cross – the cross where Jesus hung. But there were two other crosses at Calvary that day too, and there is indeed much for us to learn as we consider the story of those two other men who were crucified alongside Jesus. Which side of the cross are you on? Listen now to this stirring gospel message. 

The First Sacrifice

The First Sacrifice

The first death in the Bible is the death of an animal killed by God to clothe naked sinners. Having lost their covering of God’s glory when they disobeyed God, Adam and Eve tried in vain to cover their nakedness by sewing fig leaves together. But nothing they did could ease their fear and shame; yet God in His love and grace provided blood-soaked tunics for these two unworthy sinners. This sermon reminds us that without Christ's blood we are naked in our sin, naked of righteousness and worthy of judgement. Your eyes will be opened to the power of Christ's work of substitutionary atonement on the cross; this means that our sin can be covered and we can be connected to God in relationship once again because we are now clothed in Christ's garment of righteousness.

The Resurrection Evidence that Changed a Generation of Scholars

The Resurrection Evidence that Changed a Generation of Scholars

A chance to listen to the lecture presented at the One Church School of Apologetics by Professor Gary Habermas on the Minimal Facts Method and the evidence for the resurrection of Jesus. 

Gary demonstrates that independent of the historicity of the gospels or one’s view of the reliability or inspiration of the Bible, the outcome of historiographical scholarship demonstrates conclusively that Jesus died, was buried and rose to life in line with 1 Corinthians 15. 

Gary is Distinguished Professor and Chair of Philosophy at Liberty University, USA. He is widely considered the world expert on the historiographical evidence for Christ's resurrection.


One Way

One Way

The resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth from the dead is the ultimate authentication of Jesus’ claim to be God. If Jesus was raised from the dead the implications are immense and a response is required of each one of us.

Drawing on the evidence for the resurrection, this message explores Jesus’ claim to be the Way, the Truth and the Life and also deals with the false logic behind the prevailing view in our culture that all religious paths are equally true.

The Christian hope is not built on the empty promises of a dead religious teacher but on the glorious fact of the resurrection of the Son of God. For those of us who have trusted in Christ, that means we have access to life and freedom on this earth and also a future in heaven that is immeasurably good.

Cheers, Jeers and Triumph

Cheers, Jeers and Triumph

At Easter we celebrate the most momentous event in the history of the world. On Good Friday we remember the incredible sacrifice Jesus made for us, giving His life so that we might live. In this Good Friday message, we look at the events around the crucifixion through the words that were spoken - the cheers, the jeers and the triumph. What will your response to Jesus be this Easter?
