Following from our children Christmas Production (Max Lucado's, The Children of the King) Pastor Neli encourages us with the question, "Why are we here?" What defines the answer to this question will inevitably be the foundation in which we live our life upon. The things that define us will either distract or determine our purpose. As we come into the festive season, let us understand that Jesus Christ was sent for a purpose and that's to bring us into the realisation of his perfect love so that we can recognise our purpose - to glorify Him.
So take heart, men, for I have faith in God that it will be exactly as I have been told.
- Acts 27:25 (ESV)

Join us again for another great message in our Called Out series. This week Pastor Neli talks of Paul and how his transformation took place. What was happening before and during the time of Paul's encounter with Christ and how did this change his life? When God gives you the opportunity to preach the Gospel do not present it from a place of fantasy but from a place of humility and confidence. Are you persuaded by the love of God to boldly preach the Gospel?
And Agrippa said to Paul, “In a short time would you persuade me to be a Christian?” And Paul said, “Whether short or long, I would to God that not only you but also all who hear me this day might become such as I am—except for these chains.”
- Acts 26:28-29 (ESV)

Acts 23:1-3 sets the scene for the sermon today. We see Paul captured and struck and are not sure what will come next...

As we continue our Called Out series we go deeper into the Book of Acts. Pastor Neli this week helps us compare our lives and relationships and helps us to reflect on who we really are. Are we in a relationship that has been made available to us through the cross, giving us miraculous power, or are we a Christian just "getting by". The choice is ours but who are we representing?
But the evil spirit answered them, “Jesus I know, and Paul I recognize, but who are you?”
- Acts 19:15 (ESV)

We're continuing in our Called Out series. This week Pastor Neli poses the question, "What is our approach to strange things?" We are all worshippers, but what do we worship? Do we bow down to the world and start to worship money, sports, relationships, or people or do we worship God? We must walk in a relationship with Jesus Christ that's completely transparent so we can understand the power of what He has already done for us. That's when we truly become fulfilled.
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
- 1 John 4:7-8 (ESV)

Everyone who calls themselves a son or daughter of God has a calling to ministry but what does that calling look like. Join us as we continue our Called Out series with this week about the calling of Saul and Paul. Every call has people in mind and we are called to bring people to Jesus. If you know your call, have you responded yet?
And when Paul had seen the vision, immediately we sought to go on into Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them.

Join us as we continue our Called Out series. Pastor Neli compares the old children's rhyme to our response to praise and persecution. You can trust a person's character by how they handle praise and persecution. Our character is reflected as a part of our Christianity which people don't see. We must be intentional about our Christianity and worship God with our character, not our gifting.
When they had preached the gospel to that city and had made many disciples, they returned to Lystra and to Iconium and to Antioch, strengthening the souls of the disciples, encouraging them to continue in the faith, and saying that through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God.

Week 13 of our Called Out series and this week Pastor Neli prepares us for our eulogy and what would be said. What will we die for? How do we want to be remembered? What becomes our eulogy is determined by how we are living our life now but how should we live out our lives to the glory of God? Is what we are doing now setting us up for what really matters to God?
But the word of God increased and multiplied
