Random sermon quote: "Think of the hungry man crawling through the desert, crying 'Water! Water!', looking for that oasis. Does he want water and a car? Does he want water and a house? Does he want water and a new suit? He wants water, and water alone! For only water can satisfy" - Blessed Are Those Who Hunger And Thirst After Righteousness

Latest Sermon - "Fellowship" -- Subscribe to our weekly MP3 Podcast -- Subscribe to our Podcast in iTunesTop

Join our mailing listFellowship is not going to meetings. Amen? You're allowed to say 'Amen' to that! Fellowship is not going to meetings, I'll say a big one to that! 'Amen' from the bottom of my boots! Many of the meetings that I attend, I have to say, I don't experience the life of God in them. Fellowship certainly is not sitting in a pew looking at the back of somebody else's neck - that's the way some of us understand fellowship, attending gatherings, events in the church. Neither is fellowship church membership. That's not the subject tonight, although there might be some overlap in your understanding there, but that is not the same thing - having your name on the roll. Someone once said to me that there can be those in membership who are not in fellowship, and those in fellowship who are not in membership - think about that one later! It's not the same thing. Busyness of programs is not fellowship. Frantic activism is not fellowship - even if your activities are very exciting ones.

It is tragic that fellowship has often been summed up as 'tea and buns', you know: 'Wait behind for a wee cuppa, and we will have some fellowship'. I've even heard people complain, not here - well, I have heard people complain here, but not about this - I've heard people say in some churches: 'There's not enough fellowship here!'. Have you heard that? What do people mean by that? [Listen or read more...]

Sailing With Paul: Charting The Christian Voyage
by Harry A. Ironside
Sailing With Paul: Charting The Christian Voyage
Take a trip with the Apostle Paul through the fundamentals of the Christian life. Moving through eighteen points of interest, Dr. Ironside leads us on a journey through Paul's teachings on subjects such as Conversion, Forgiveness, Redemption, Justification and Sanctification - concluding with 'The Voyage Ended: The Judgment Seat of Christ'. Each section is brief enough to be easily read, simple enough to be clearly understood, and pointed enough to encourage the spiritual traveller to press on in their journey with Christ.

This book makes an excellent 'handbook' for new believers, but will also refresh those who have been long on the journey, and is perfect for group or individual study.

From the introduction: "Do you sail with Paul? It is not now a question of temporal, but of eternal salvation. The voyage I have in mind is not from one earthly port to another, but that vastly more important voyage from earth to Heaven, from the City of Destruction to the Celestial City. One thing is certain: You are on a voyage, sailing over the sea of time, bound for eternity. What is it to sail with Paul? It is to know Paul's Saviour and to share Paul's blessings".
