Christmas - Gifts or Love?

2000 years ago God’s unfailing love for us caused an eternal plan to be enacted on our behalf. The coming of Jesus Christ, born in a humble stable, to become the sacrifice for us all, this cosmic event displayed the love of God in a way nothing else could. Romans 5:5 says God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. God has poured out his love not only upon us, but also into our very being. God himself is love, He does more than just show affection or concern, He is love, it is the very essence of His being. That means that God has in fact poured himself into our hearts. This should be a constant on-going experience that changes our very nature, character and lifestyle.

Love is more than the flimsy ever changing emotion that we are perhaps familiar with. Biblical love, God’s love is a powerful life-force that changes lives and nations. 1 John 4:11 declares Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. Jesus on several occasions proclaimed a new commandment “to love our neighbours as ourselves”, but he didn’t stop there, he also declared that we should “love our enemies” also. Galatians 5:6 says The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love. As Christians, for our love toward God to be valid, it must be expressed in tangible ways. As Christmas approaches people everywhere are reminded of the value of family and friends, others may feel a “religious” twinge and perhaps go to church for their one time of the year.

As we enter this time, where holiday preparations are made, work winds down and other festivities and celebrations organized, it does us well to be reminded of the power of true love, not mere human feelings but divine love given from above. Below is a quick recap of why we should love and the powerful results that can come as we love others.

Why Love?
• God Commands it Matt 22:38
• We are known by our love John 13:35
• Love strengthens the Fellowship Eph 4:15-16
• Releases the Blessings of God Ps 133
• Promotes Sacrificial Service 1 Thess 2:8

What Love Does
• Releases Life 1 John 4:9
• Releases the presence of God John 14:23
• Fulfills the OT law Rom 13:8
• Releases complete Joy John 15:9-12
• Enables us to know God better 1 John 4:7
• We are made Complete 1 John 4:12-16
• Destroys all fear 1 John 4:18
• Keeps our minds focused Col 3:1-20

God Bless you as you display His love to others, Tony

Dreams & Visions

Acts 2:16-19 this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.

The Bible is full of examples of people having dreams and visions, despite the sometimes strange nature of these events they are to be part of the normal Christian life. God is always communicating with us, dreams and visions are just another avenue through which God speaks. We should not be surprised or skeptical, rather we are to learn how to discern what is from God and develop the sensitivity and spiritual insight to understand what God is conveying. The following is a recent dream I had on the 23rd October.

I found myself on a small jetty just inside the mouth of a river trying to fish, the tide was extremely low with only 30cm or so of water in the river. On the far side was a darker patch of water indicating a deeper hole where the fish were hiding. As hard as I tried I could not cast my line that far so I clambered down the jetty and began to walk through the water to reach the spot. When I reached halfway I began to hear this loud sound behind me, as I turned I could see a wall of rushing water perhaps 4 feet high flooding toward me. I quickly ran back to the jetty and managed to climb up just before the surge of flooding water swept by. As I looked into the water I could see it bubbling as fish of every kind, colour and size were jumping, there were more fish than I had ever seen before in my life, dolphins and seals swam among them and a myriad of birds hovered overhead. I turned to an old fisherman who was sitting on the jetty and asked him, “What was that, does this happen often?” He replied, “No … that’s a Kingdom tide” I corrected him by saying “don’t you mean a king tide” to which he responded “No … this is different, this is a Kingdom tide” As I looked back into the water I could see the dolphins were actually angels gliding through the water herding the fish together in large schools. Catching fish was now easy, there was no effort in trying to cast a line, all I had to do was simply drop a net into the water and an abundance of fish was gathered.

Hab 2:14 For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea

When I woke I knew exactly what the dream meant. There is a coming wave of God’s glory that will bring such a richness of life. Angels are working behind the scenes to gather, the Holy Spirit is drawing people so that a great harvest will be reaped as a fresh wave of heaven’s atmosphere sweeps in, a wave of supernatural power releasing miracles, signs and wonders and the tangible weight of God’s glory. Our role is to position ourselves in faith, with expectant hearts and have our nets ready. We are not observers but we too are part of that great wave.

God bless, Tony

Heaven's Life

Once again we are heading towards our major outreach event for the year - The Conscious Living Expo. As in the past this has been a wonderful time of seeing God move in love, power and grace as many are touched physically, emotionally and spiritually. The mandate of the church is clearly stated in Matthew 10:8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received, freely give. Not only did Jesus command this but he enabled us to do the same. We have been commissioned and empowered to release heaven’s glory on earth. Someone once said “All it takes for the forces of evil to invade and triumph—is for good people to do nothing.”

There is an invisible world around us, one of life, joy and goodness flowing from the Throne of God, and another of sickness, disease, torment and hatred that is perpetrated by the devil. Jesus made it clear as he dealt with the effects of that evil regime by conquering sickness and even death. There are two kingdoms at work in this world, but it is no longer a war in the sense that one is still struggling to overcome the other. Jesus has won already. Colossians 2:15 says when Jesus died he disarmed those evil powers and made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. They no longer have any legitimate power, the only power they can feed off is fear, unbelief and ignorance. If the Church remains passive or skeptical about this invisible realm it will never invade it. Yet that is exactly what we have been called to do, that is what Jesus did.

This is our purpose as believers on the earth, to spread the fragrance of Jesus everywhere we go. It’s in the doing that we truly live, find joy and become the hands of Christ to a hurting world. We saw God move mightily last year and our expectation is for the same results this year. If you feel daunted—don’t be. “greater is HE who is in YOU, than he who is the world” We carry within us the Holy Spirit and his wisdom, His anointing is upon us to release His life. May our vision be ever outward and upward seeing HIS kingdom invade the atmosphere around us. Please sign up and help us again in fulfilling our mandate.

God bless, Tony

Freedom in the Kingdom

Gal 5:1 says It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Paul also declares these words in 2 Cor 3:17 where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. Jesus did not come to this earth to impose a new set of rules, rather he came to set people free from religious performance.

For those who place their trust in Him we step into the wonderful freedom the New Covenant offers. In fact Jesus promised the same in John 8:36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. Below is a list of some of the things Jesus set us fee from and into from Kaye’s preach recently:

We are free FROM:
• alienation and hopelessness - Eph. 2:13 & 19; Rom. 8:15-17; Jer.29:11
• the power, control and torment of sin and of sin-consciousness. - Rom.6:14, 1 John 1:9
• the curse of the Law - Gal. 3:13
• condemnation & the devil’s lies - God declares us justified. - Rom. 8:1-4
• from fear - perfect love casts out fear. Rom. 8:15, 2 Tim. 1:7 & 1 John 4:18
• the treadmill of performance to gain God’s favour & blessing - we enter the rest of faith. - Rom. 5:17; Eph. 2:8-9; Heb. 4:9 and Heb. 10:14

We are free TO:
• hear God’s voice and enjoy relationship with the Godhead. Isa. 30:21, John 10:3-5
• enjoy God’s love, grace, peace, favour & help - Isa. 30:18; Heb. 4:16; 2 Peter 1:2
• to claim all His promises as His covenant children - 2 Cor. 1:20
• to enjoy every spiritual blessing - Eph. 1:3; 1 Cor. 1:5 &7
• to voluntarily serve Him and His people - 2 Cor. 3:6; Eph. 2:10
• to become fully who He made us to be - 2 Cor. 3:18
• to do exploits for our God & spread the knowledge of Him throughout the earth - Dan. 11:32; 2 Cor. 2:14 Matt.28;18-20& Eph. 2:10
• to be a blessed and to be a blessing to others - Gen. 12:2-3 & Gal. 3:14
• to enjoy our inheritance as children of God - Psa. 2:8; Psa. 111:2-6; Eph. 3:6
• to become invincible! - Jer. 29:11 & Rom. 8:28
• to hope and have confidence because our hope and confidence are in Christ’s finished work, not in ourselves. - Heb. 6:13-20
• to overcome and reign in life. - 2 Cor. 2:14 & Rom. 5:17
• to enjoy eternal life, starting now! - John 3:36; Rom. 6:23 & 1 John 5:11
• to give because we have received - Matt.10:8 & Eph. 1:6
• to worship Him in spirit and in truth - Psa. 95:6-7 & John 4:2; Rom.12:1

God bless.

God is Always Speaking

God’s desire is to constantly speak to us. He does so through a number of different ways. He can speak audibly. He can speak through the Bible – His Word, He can speak via the avenue of prayer, He may speak through circumstances, He can even speak through a dream or a vision. He may speak in a whisper to our inner being where we get a sense or prompting in our spirit. At other times God may speak directly through another person. This was often the case in Old Testament times as God spoke through Prophets. We see several occasions in the New Testament where God also spoke clearly through people in this way. God hasn’t changed, He still desires to speak, He loves us and wants to communicate with us, revealing more of Himself and His ways.

1 Thessalonians 5:20 tells us not to despise, or ignore prophesies, but to “weigh” them, to test them. We are to be faithful with what God speaks directly to us and take those words and pray them into being with faith. Equally we are to take what God clearly declares in His Word and live in that reality with faith and obedience.

When we receive Jesus as our Lord and Saviour, the Holy Spirit regenerates our spirit, we become one with Jesus, we are in Him and He is in us. That means we can communicate freely with God himself. Prayer, Worship and life itself is meant to involve two way conversations, God is always speaking but sometimes we are not listening. Our spiritual ears can become blocked. The bible shows us that those who heard God regularly did so because they had attuned their spiritual ears to hear his voice.

How do we do that?

1. Recognize that God speaks through His Word, therefore we need to spend time reading the Bible

2. Ask the Holy Spirit to make the Word alive to us

3. Set aside specific time where you cut yourself off from all outside distractions to hear God

4. Meditate on the Word – that is fill your mind with truth and God’s thoughts

5. Live with a confidence that you are a New Creation and can hear from God

6. Develop a prayer life that is more than a list of requests but is conversational in nature

7. Develop and grow as a worshipper, the whispers of God are heard in His Throne Room, the place of intimate worship

8. Obey what you hear, our ears can become dull when we ignore what God has previously called us to do.

How do you know if it’s God speaking?
God’s voice leads, the devil drives. God brings clarity, the devil brings confusion. God brings peace, the devil brings fear. God brings freedom and liberty, the devil brings bondage and condemnation.

May our hearts be open “speak Lord for your servants are listening”

God bless.

No Fear of the Future

I want to commend all of you who have persevered over the last few weeks in our study of Eschatology. I know for some it has been an enthralling and eye opening journey. For others it’s been very challenging as previous paradigms have been rattled. While it may be difficult to apply our minds to such a subject it has proved rewarding for those who have done so. For others you have questioned the purpose of such a study and have lost interest.

There are three primary enemies to a dynamic victorious Christian life: apathy, distortions of truth and fear. Over the years I have seen too many people living with fears, whether it be fear of sickness, death, the unknown, or of missing a rapture and a future Great Tribulation and outpouring of wrath. God did not give us a spirit of fear but of power of love and of a sound mind. A mind that can be applied to understand God’s purposes and plans. On the other hand there are three allies to a victorious Christian life: purpose, faith – that comes from revelation of truth, and a bold confidence in our identity in Christ. Understanding God’s “Big Picture” for mankind reinforces that confidence and purpose. We are part of a triumphant world wide Church commissioned to bring the glorious atmosphere of heaven to earth, impacting and influencing every area of life. When our world shrinks to our own self created universe where we are the centre we lose sight of God’s glorious plan.

So... why have we embarked on this study?

a) To break every fear that anyone may have of the future.

b) To give understanding that we are part of a glorious Church with a mandate and mission.

c) To show God is in control, the future is bright, and Jesus will berevealed to a world who needs to see him.

I echo the words of Kris Vallotton:

  • I will not embrace an end-time worldview that re-empowers a disempowered devil.
  • I will not accept an eschatology that takes away my children’s future, and creates mindsets that undermine the mentality of leaving a legacy.
  • I will not tolerate any theology that sabotages the clear command of Jesus to make disciples of all nations and the Lord’s Prayer that earth would be like heaven.
  • I will not allow any interpretation of the scriptures that destroys hope for the nations and undermines our command to restore ruined cities.
  • I will not embrace an eschatology that changes the nature of a good God.
  • I refuse to embrace any mindset that celebrates bad news as a sign of the times and a necessary requirement for the return of Jesus.
  • I am opposed to any doctrinal position that pushes the promises of God into a time zone that can’t be obtained in my generation and therefore takes away any responsibility I have to believe God for them in my lifetime.
  • I don’t believe that the last days are a time of judgment, nor do I believe God gave the church the right to call for wrath for sinful cities. There is a day of judgment in which GOD will judge man, not us

God bless.

BRIAN SIMMONS
Prophetic Word for Australia

This month we have the privilege of having Brian Simmons with us. Brian is a true pioneer and a spiritual Father to many. Together with his wife Candice their teaching and spiritual gifts have opened doors in many nations to take the message of authentic awakening and revival to many. For the last 40 years they have labored together to present Christ in His fullness wherever God sends them. After a dramatic conversion to Christ in 1971 Brian answered the call of God to leave everything behind and become a missionary to the tribes. Taking his wife and three children to the jungle of Central America they pioneered church plants for many years with the Kuna people group. As a linguist, Brian also was the co translator for the Kuna New Testament. Upon their return to the USA they planted Gateway Christian Fellowship which they pastored for some 18 years before venturing into full time itinerant ministry. Brian has written a number of books including the much acclaimed “The Passion Translation”.

Late last year Brian gave a prophetic word for Australia, below are the main points of that word:

The land down under will become one of the most desirable places to live on earth as the Holy Spirit begins to fall, kissing the hearts of His worshippers. Throughout your nation, the Great Southland of the Holy Spirit, a wave of God's favor is about to sweep over you.

1.Australia will experience an immediate Holy Spirit shift that could be compared to the WINDOWS of Heaven being open over your nation.

2.Australia will be a healing center. Many healings will come to the praying Believers who have great faith for healing. The anointing of Smith Wigglesworth, the noted healing evangelist of generations past, will be re-deposited in the Church.

3.Truth will prevail. Aussies love the truth, hate the hype, and have been given great discernment. God has put a root of truth into your DNA. You will help the global Church navigate many thorny theological issues that will soon arise. Authors will be anointed to point us to truth. You will carry the Spirit of Truth and the Word of Truth as discernment flows through you. Never fall back from your calling to preach the truth.

4.The Battle of Hope continues. The Hope of Christ must win over every pocket of fear of the future. I saw Perth give birth to a move of mercy, giving compassion to the Asians that have come to your land. Perth will soon be called "a Global City of Refuge"

5.Judah praises. I see high praises rising from all over the nation.

6.You will move from following the pack to leading the pack. Your leadership calling will not be stifled. An apostolic renewal will come. What was cut short and went dormant will now break forth with new grace as true apostles begin to emerge.

7.The Gift of Fellowship (Mateship). The redemptive calling of Australia is to model community, fellowship, partnership in the Gospel, fighting for your brother and sister, serving them as you display the love of Jesus.

God bless.

GOD IN US

Psalm 91:1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

This verse has been one of those scriptures that has become very real to me over the years. The promise and reality of God’s abiding Presence with us wherever we are brings a security that no earthly relationship or possession can give. Jesus said “I will never leave you or forsake you” To sense the presence of God daily is not a dream or an impossibility, nor is it a euphoric goose-bump “feeling” Jesus promised in John 14:15 that He would send the Holy Spirit, who is God, to be with us, in fact he says He would live within us! The promise of the Holy Spirit coming to us means that we can know Him personally and intimately. The reality of His peace, His rest, His power and presence can overshadow us daily. The Bible says of Him that He is our Comforter, Counselor and Helper.

Following are a few things that we begin to see happen in our lives as we develop a deeper friendship with the Holy Spirit.

  • He Helps us in our Weakness – Rom 8:26
  • Gives Assurance of Salvation – Rom 8:16
  • Brings Freedom from Fear – Rom 8:15
  • Gives Access to God the Father – Eph 2:18
  • The Kingdom of God becomes Reality – Rom 14:17
  • Our Faith grows – 2 Cor 4:13
  • We operate with Spiritual Gifts – 1 Cor 12:4-11
  • Our Character changes – Gal 5:22
  • Liberty and Freedom comes – 2 Cor 3:17
  • We can Walk in Step with Him – Gal 5:16
  • Praise and Worship becomes natural – Phil 3:3
  • Divine Revelation comes – John 16:13; 1 Cor 2:9
  • God’s Love becomes more real – Rom 5:5
  • Our love for others increases – Phil 2:1-7
  • Grace, Power and Wisdom comes to us – Acts 6:3
  • Spiritual fruit is evident – Gal 5:22

Without Him we carry no authority, liberty, life or power with which to effect this world, but with Him we can become conduits for the atmospheres of heaven to invade this earth bringing life, healing and joy.

Acts 17:28 In Him we live and move and have our being May we all develop a deeper relationship with the Holy Spirit releasing His life and joy.

God bless,
Tony

My King

An excerpt from SM Lockridge’s “My King sermon” trust it encourages you as it does me. “My King was born King. The Bible says He’s a Seven Way King. He’s the King of the Jews – that’s an Ethnic King. He’s the King of Israel – that’s a National King. He’s the King of righteousness. He’s the King of the ages. He’s the King of Heaven. He’s the King of glory. He’s the King of kings and He is the Lord of lords. Now that’s my King.

He’s God’s Son. He’s the sinner’s Saviour. He’s the centrepiece of civilization. He stands alone in Himself. He’s honest. He’s unique. He’s unparalleled. He’s unprecedented. He’s supreme. He’s pre-eminent. That’s my King.

He’s the miracle of the age. He’s the only one able to supply all our needs. He supplies strength for the weak. He sympathizes and He saves. He’s the Almighty God who guides. He heals the sick. He cleanses the lepers. He forgives sinners. He delivers the captives. He defends the feeble. That’s my King.

He’s the King of knowledge. He’s the wellspring of wisdom. He’s the doorway of deliverance. He’s the pathway of peace. He’s the roadway of righteousness. He’s the highway of holiness. He’s the gateway of glory. He’s the prince of princes. He’s the King of kings and He’s the Lord of lords. That’s my King.

His goodness is limitless. His mercy is everlasting. His love never changes. His Word is enough. His grace is sufficient. His reign is righteous. His yoke is easy and His burden is light. I wish I could describe Him to you... but He’s indescribable. That’s my King.

He’s invincible. He’s irresistible, the heavens of heavens can’t contain Him, let alone some man explain Him. You can’t outlive Him and you can’t live without Him. Pilate couldn’t find any fault in Him. Herod couldn’t kill Him. Death couldn’t handle Him and the grave couldn’t hold Him. That’s my King. Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory and all the power belongs to Him… That’s my King.

God bless,
Tony

Run the Race

This month we have scheduled a great fun day for our children called “Kids Olympics”. Sport has for centuries been a part of virtually every culture. Paul the apostle uses sporting terms several times as he describes the Christian Life. In Ephesians 6 he speaks of wrestling, not
against flesh and blood but against demonic forces. Ours is not a fight against natural enemies but against spiritual powers. The only way to stand against spiritual forces intent on destroying us is to use spiritual weapons. Faith in Jesus, Biblical confessions of victory, understanding our secure position in Christ, standing in the promises of the New Covenant. Prophetic declarations from a position of authority in Christ. These are the dynamic spiritual weapons that are at our disposal. Our Praise is also a powerful force that releases angelic assistance. The Message bible says of Isaiah 30:32 “Every blow GOD lands on them with his club is in time to the music of drums and pipes, GOD in all-out, two fisted battle, fighting against them”. As we praise, God goes to battle for us against poverty, sickness, fear and every demonic force that would come against us. We see examples in 2 Chronicles 20: Joshua 6: Judges 7 and Acts 16: where God’s people praise Him and supernatural victory comes.

In 1 Cor 9:24-26 Paul also talks about “Running the Race” faithful service to Jesus from a position of confidence and security in Jesus, empowered by grace he kept the prize in sight, he was able to remain focused and not be sidetracked or distracted from God’s calling on his life. In Gal 2:2 and Phil 2:16 he warns us that to deviate from the Good News of the Gospel is to run in vain. In Gal 5:7 he asks the question of the Galatian church “you were running the race so well, who cut in on you and kept you from obeying the truth?” That truth was God’s grace to us, salvation through faith in what Jesus has done, not in our good works or any religious ritual. In Heb 12:1. He says “let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us” How do we do that? – by keeping our “eyes fixed on Jesus the author and perfecter of our faith”

We are all in a race, not just the human race, but the marathon run of life. The only way we can win that race is to keep drawing our sustenance from the ONE who is able to keep us, nourish us and enable us to endure. There is only ONE – Jesus. Our faith in Him, our praise of Him keeps us positioned at the head of the pack – there is a prize worth running for – let’s keep our eyes on the prize.

God bless,
Tony

A Church of Influence

God has entrusted each of us with the ability to influence others, we do so in either a positive or negative way. The Church is meant to be a positive influence on the world around it affecting all aspects of life. It presents the true source of hope and life, who is Jesus. Paul tells us we are ambassadors and agents of reconciliation, we carry the words of life and we can demonstrate the love, goodness and power of God. Yet so often the stumbling block for unsaved people is the apparent lack of credibility among Christians.

Paul says to Timothy we should be those who have a “good reputation with both believers and outsiders” Reputation is character, although there is an important difference. Reputation is who people think we are, character is who we really are. DL Moody said “character is who you are in the dark” In other words character is who we are when no one is watching. The key to a good reputation is developing a good character. The problem is this world is so obsessed with appearance that we confuse image with character. So what are the Hallmarks of Godly character that we need to develop in order to influence the world for Jesus?

1. Humility. Pride comes before a fall, it was pride that caused Lucifer to fall, pride is what got Adam in trouble, pride comes in many forms and guises but no matter how it manifests, it’s destructive. James 4:6 says “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble”

2. Dependability. How often do we come across people who promise everything but who don’t deliver. Being a disciple means we can be counted on, we’re reliable and trustworthy, faithful and true.

3. Generous. Proverbs 25:15 says, “Like clouds and wind without rain is a man who boasts of gifts he does not give.” People are not honoured for what they receive, they’re honoured for what they give. Our time, talents, experience, resources.

4. Godly Priorities. The Bible tells us of things that are worth living for, the treasures of this world are transient, here today and gone tomorrow. Paul’s life was one of absolute service, his decisions were made with a knowledge of what was truly important.

5. Integrity. Grace enables us to discard the religious masks that so many Christians feel forced to hide behind. Integrity means we have nothing to hide, there’s no fear of being found out because there’s nothing to find out. How sad to watch so many powerful Ministers come undone as secret sin is discovered.

6. Spiritual Maturity. When God becomes the priority in our life we gain favour not only with God but with man, our influence increases. We don’t earn God’s blessing or love, that comes as a free gift by grace, but we can increase in favour, Jesus did. People are drawn to those who display a genuine love for God.

God bless,
Tony

2015 A perfect time to rise again.

Welcome to 2015! I know for many last year was not particularly easy, yet I would encourage us all in the words of the writer to the Hebrews “do not throw away your confidence for it will be richly rewarded” We have an anchor for our soul and that anchor is Jesus. We are all a little older, and I trust a little wiser, but our hearts desire is that we all grow a little more like Jesus everyday. This new year will certainly have it’s challenges, but every challenge is yet another opportunity for our faith to grow and be exercised and for others to see God through us. Our prayer is that together we progress and mature into a true Bible Based New Testament Church.

It is timely therefore to remind ourselves just why the church exists. The world needs to see that the church is alive and well, that it stands for righteousness, that it is more than just a social club, it is in fact the only avenue of hope. The church is the means by which lonely, hurting people can discover the amazing grace and love of Almighty God.

As we are reminded of these few things let us commit ourselves to faithfully fulfill our calling and mandate to build a church that truly makes a difference, each of us seeing ourselves as a vital, integral and indispensable part. Our future is dependent upon God and YOU. No one is here by accident, God has a purpose for each one and amazingly He has chosen to limit His actions on the earth to a partnership with His children who serve in faith. Let us be that Church that lives in the reality of that partnership.

Our challenge is to model a Biblical Church that will -

Exalt God in all aspects of Life
Enlist ourselves for God’s will, purposes & plans
Enjoy God & the reality of His presence
Encourage one another
Exemplify Christ in all we do
Equip ourselves & others for service
Enthrone Christ as King in our lives & ventures
Establish the Kingdom of God, His rule & reign
Enhance the life of our Communities through love & kindness

2015 is the perfect time to move into the new things God has prepared in advance for us take a hold of.

God bless,
Tony
