Faith Fed By Babylon

FAITH fed by BABYLON We ALL live in Babylon. It is worldwide. Our faith and our future is both formed and informed by a creation united against, and wilfully independent of its Creator. Babylon’s unhealthy influence to rebellion permeates our souls, and soaks all our actions. Where we see disobedience, when we live amidst Godless […]

TOGETHER

TOGETHER This was the theme of our recent Church Camp. Our speaker Michael Williamson raised with us questions such as: How do we get to know one another? How do we start a loving conversation? He encouraged us to use F. O. R. E. to help with this. These four areas are easy to raise […]

Entrusted with the Message

Entrusted with the Message Christmas is rapidly approaching though sadly the meaning has been lost for many. As followers of Jesus we celebrate the love, forgiveness, reconciliation, hope and eternal life that comes through Jesus. This is a vital and important message for every living person to hear, understand and respond to. Jesus came to […]

Throne Down

Commissioned to call was Jonah’s omission no longer. His watery deep darkness became light. Three unforgettable days as the history’s first submariner had left him as discarded refuse from a fish’s belly on a Mediterranean shoreline. Now on dry land and with a responsive heart, Jonah heard from God again. Jonah knew Nineveh was to […]

Why is faith without works dead?

This article was written by GotQuestions.org www.gotquestions.org/faith-without-works-dead.html   Question: “Why is faith without works dead?” Answer: James says, “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also” (James 2:26). Faith without works is a dead faith because the lack of works reveals an unchanged life or a spiritually dead […]

Pentecost

We would not be destined for heaven. Pentecost – the Holy Spirit was poured into all the believers 50 days after Jesus […]

A Guilt Problem

I have a guilt problem. Can you help me? Psalm 73: 25 says ‘earth has nothing I desire besides you ( Lord )’ or a modern song we sing in some of our services says “You (Lord) are my heart’s desire and I long to follow You” I feel that my heart’s desire is not […]

Happy New Year

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Well it’s not so new now – it’s 7 days old already. Is it Happy? Perhaps we should wish each other a ‘happier’ New Year. My guess is that no one has been perfectly happy the last seven days. We have various aches and pains, some ongoing troubles, there are still wars, […]

The Story of ICHTHUS
