Called Out - The Prototype

August 21, 2017

Continuing with our Called Out series, Pastor Neli sets a comparison with John and Peter as prototypes for boldness. How do we stand when it comes to situations we are uncomfortable with? Are we like John and Peter? When God shows up in your life it may leave you speechless but remember to obey God no matter the circumstances.

Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they were astonished. And they recognized that they had been with Jesus.
- Acts 4:13 (ESV)


Called Out - The Bold And The Beautiful

August 14, 2017

We are continuing our series "Called Out". This week Pastor Neli speaks from the Book of Acts Chapter 3 and compares our attitude and behaviour to the lame man by the gate. God wants us to be empowered to walk out in the destiny he has planned for us but is our heart leaping for God? Do others see the praise of God in our lives?

And he took him by the right hand and raised him up, and immediately his feet and ankles were made strong. And leaping up, he stood and began to walk, and entered the temple with them, walking and leaping and praising God.
- Acts 3:7-8 (ESV)


Called Out - Church In The Wild

August 7, 2017

Join us this week as we continue our Call Out series. This week Pastor Neli talks about the Church In The Wild. The Holy Spirit falls on us with a purpose and empowers us to go out with the Gospel. But when the Gospel is preached accurately it demands a response. What is our response to the Gospel or have our ears been dulled from overhearing the Gospel? Be devoted to what Christ is teaching us and let's not follow after the world but instead follow after Christ.

Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
- Acts 2:38 (NIV)


Called Out - There’s A Fire Upstairs

July 31, 2017

We continue our series "Called Out" with the Book of Acts chapter 2. Pastor Neli compares the power of the Holy Spirit to fire as it refines, heats and spreads. We need the power of the Holy Spirit to empower God's purpose. God is looking for a certain person in this generation who is not ashamed of the Gospel. Do you want that sort of power in your life?

And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.
- Acts 2:3-4 (ESV)


Called Out - Exit Strategy

July 24, 2017

We start our new series "Called Out" with this week about creating an Exit Strategy. Having an exit strategy is something which is important to learn especially for those who want to lead effectively in their sphere of influence. We must learn to leave something in a better situation than when we started and exit with a blessing in mind for the future generation. How we respond to God determines how we exit. What are we doing with what God has given to us so that we can exit knowing we have done what God has called us to do?

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.
- Acts 1:8 (ESV)


Confidence In The Caller

July 17, 2017

We welcome our special guest speaker Pastor Ken Johnston from Every Nation Melbourne to bring our message today with "Confidence in the Caller". Where do we draw our confidence from? Are the things we go through in our lives part of God's gracious action to us that he will start to take away the things that we have falsely put our confidence in? Like Moses, God wants us to put our confidence in Him so He can do great things in us and through us.

So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.
- Hebrews 10:35-36 (NIV)



July 10, 2017

Pastor Neli brings our message today from the Book of Philippians. PRESS. There are times we feel under pressure but God's word reminds us to press forward. When the enemy puts pressure on us, press back because the worth of knowing The Lord is worth a lot more than anything else. We must learn to put pressure on the pressure that's being put on us by living a life out loud for Jesus. Whatever comes our way are opportunities to give glory to God.

Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own.
- Philippians 3:12 (ESV)


Kingdom Culture: Times, Seasons and Purpose

July 3, 2017

We welcome our guest speaker today bringing us a message about the Kingdom Culture. What has God called us to do? Pastor Jonathan Mok describes our current times compared to future seasons and the purpose God has planned for us all. Many people are living out of sync. Let us not miss God's timing because we are rushing from one season to get to the next. Remain planted in the church, get into the Word of God and find the gold within you so you can release your seed potential.

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven
- Ecclesiastes 3:1 (KJV)


At The Movies - Guardians Of The Galaxy: On Guard

June 26, 2017

We conclude our series "At The Movies" with Guardians of the Galaxy. What does it mean to be a Guardian? Pastor Neli takes the world's view of a guardian and compares with the biblical view of a guardian. When we are guarding something we don't just guard it with our mouth or our mind, we guard it with everything we have. God wants us to take His word as holding so much value that it's worth guarding. What we say and how we live flows out of what we have stored in the safety of our hearts.

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
Keep your mouth free of perversity; keep corrupt talk far from your lips.
Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you.
- Proverbs 4:23-25 (ESV)


At The Movies - LaLa Land: City Of Stars

June 19, 2017

Join us this week as we continue our series, "At The Movies". Pastor Neli reads from the Book of Habakkuk and discusses what is needed to truly see God's vision for our lives. In order for us to see the vision, we need to be positioned above our circumstances. Don't focus on the enemies that will prevent you from seeing the greatness God has for you. We are the stars of the movie God is directing in our lives but will it be a movie that draws glory back to God?

I will take my stand at my watchpost
and station myself on the tower,
and look out to see what he will say to me,
and what I will answer concerning my complaint.
- Habakkuk 2:1 (ESV)
