Join us as we continue our current series, The Lord's Prayer. This week Pastor Neli talks about temptation and how we can overcome it. When we speak of temptation we are talking about asking God to help us with the evil inside us. Temptation is the evil inside of us that has a tendency to pull us away from giving God our full attention. It is God’s grace that allows us to walk in freedom from temptation. Can you identify what leads you into temptation?
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life is not from the Father but is from the world. - 1 John 2:15-16 (ESV)

Join us as we continue our current series, The Lord's Prayer. This week Pastor Neli makes reference to bread as our source of sustenance. Scripture will state bread is Jesus himself. In saying this, Jesus is both our provision and our provider. If we look at provision without looking at the provider, we will never be fulfilled. Jesus is more than enough for us.
If you want other people to discover the daily bread that can be found in Jesus, one of the best ways you can do that is to be the source of bread for others.
Jesus then said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, it was not Moses who gave you the bread from heaven, but my Father gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” They said to him, “Sir, give us this bread always.” - John 6:32-34 (ESV)

Join us as we continue our current series, The Lord's Prayer. This week Pastor Neli discusses the importance of prayer and how we should recenter our lives around The Father. Prayer is a gift to us and should never be self centred. Prayer centres our thinking, our feelings, and our planning around Jesus. The point of prayer is to make Jesus central. If we recenter our lives around Jesus, it will completely transforms the way we live.
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. - 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (ESV)

Join us as we continue our series current series, The Lord's Prayer. This week Pastor Neli teaches us how we can represent the qualities of our Heavenly Father in our own lives so we can display them to those we interact with. God’s fatherhood is better celebrated when we walk together. Collectively as the body of Christ we best reflect God’s glory.
“And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. Pray then like this:
“Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.

Join us as we continue with our series on The Lord's Prayer. This week Pastor Neli breaks down some of the qualities of The Kingdom of God. The way we can tell that the Kingdom of God is in place, is what remains on the earth (His remnant). When was the last time you allowed yourself to be impressed by God, both in awe of who he is and in terms of moulding and shaping to who you’re meant to be? Can people see God’s rulership in you and in your environment?
“Blessed are you when people hate you and when they exclude you and revile you and spurn your name as evil, on account of the Son of Man! Rejoice in that day, and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven; for so their fathers did to the prophets. - Luke 6:22-23 (ESV)

Join us as we continue our new series, The Lord's Prayer. This week Pastor Neli teaches us the importance of adoration when we call out the Name of God. There are a plethora of images that come up when we say the Name of God because He tends to be misrepresented. Hallowed means sacred and ultimate. When we think of the word hallowed, we think of ultimate adoration because God’s name holds ultimate adoration. How is His name hallowed in your life?
Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. - Philippians 2:9-11 (ESV)

Join us as we start our new series based on The Lord's Prayer. This week Pastor Neli teaches us the importance of a quiet place to build on our relationship with God. Being with God is the objective of Prayer. God wants to activate the power of our secret lives to flow into our public lives. Pray knowing God sees you in secret and knows your needs even before you ask. How is your secret life as a christian?
But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. - Matthew 6:6 (ESV)

To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all people, that by all means I might save some. I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share with them in its blessings. - 1 Corinthians 9:22-23 (ESV)

Join us as we continue with our current series, Resilient. This week Pastor Neli discusses how we are on a counter cultural mission. Being counter cultural means when culture is moving in a certain direction we are often called to a place that resists that form of culture shift. The mission God has called us on is counter cultural.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. - Jeremiah 29:11-13 (ESV)

Join us as we continue our current series, Resilient. This week Pastor Neli discusses how we can be resilient in the context of vocational discipleship. Vocation is the calling of The Lord and what that might look like. Overtime, it revolved more around our jobs. Understand that God will take you and place you specifically where He needs you to be. Do you consider your occupation you vocation?
The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it. - Genesis 2:15 (ESV)
