Feast on Fresh Food

Oreste's message on Sunday 27th February 2011 is available for download.

In this message Oreste presents the first of the essentials for the disciple of Jesus - the word of God. The word of God is a non-negotiable for anyone who considers themself a follower of Jesus. Oreste encourages us to regularly feed our minds with God's word which is spiritual food for the human spirit. This spiritual food is available for everyone and is found in the Bible. We are to not only feed on this spiritual food but to feast on it. Feasting on fresh spiritual food is essential for the disciple if they are to live faithfully and obediently in honour of their Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.(/p>

Fall Outs? Fix them Fast!

Oreste's message on Sunday 20th February 2011 is available for download.

In this message Oreste encourages us to live reconciled lives with one another, if we are to be truly reconciled to God. We are to be ready at all times to be reconciled to others and move quickly in the process or run the risk of selfish anger taking root in our hearts with the potential consequence of the judgment of hell. The motivation to respond to fall outs with others - to fix them fast- is crucial to overcome complacency and apathy in our relationships with others. Listen to this message and be reminded once again of the essential motivation that will keep you reconciled and refreshed.

Steve goes on to preach an encouraging message about the work of God in restoring all things that were lost in paradise through Adam and Eve. Satan, sin and death have been defeated through Jesus Christ and as followers of Jesus we are secure and assured of victory - all because of our risen Lord.

Mission: The Missing Link

Oreste's message on Sunday 6th February 2011 is available for download.

In this message Oreste challenges us as a Church, to have a mindset where mission is the activity whereby we organise all our other activities in Church. This does not lessen the importance of those other activities of worship, fellowship and discipleship but in reality will strengthen them and make them more meaningful and relevant to our everyday lives. Engaging in mission at the local church level that seeks to make a difference in the local community, results in a dynamic that energises and motivates disciples of Jesus to live faithfully and work together to fulfil Jesus' command to go and make disciples. Mission is the missing link! The mission is to move out and make disciples; to move out and make a difference.
