We are continuing our new series entitled, "This Is Us". Pastor Neli talks about our values as a Church and highlights in particular "Outreach". God has called us to go out. He has called us to have a compassion for his people who are in our city but how will they hear the gospel unless you preach it? Ask yourself the question, "How can I reach the nations within the nation God has called me in right now?
Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father's house to the land that I will show you. And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
Genesis 12:1-3 (ESV)

We are continuing our new series entitled, "This Is Us". Pastor Neli talks about our values as a Church and highlights in particular "Discipleship". Discipleship is a relationship. That relationship is a journey with people, towards Christ. Where ever God has called you, we're all called to make disciples.
And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
- Matthew 28:18-20 (ESV)

We are starting our new series entitled, "This Is Us". Pastor Neli talks about our values as a Church and highlights in particular "Worship". We were all created to worship and we were all created to glorify God but we can't let the enemy steer our worship away from God. God will not be mocked by taking another idol in place of Him to be enthroned in our life. What ever is our fig leaf (idol), we need to strip it off ourselves in order to walk forward in the purposed God has for us.
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship

Join us as we conclude our "In Christ" series. This week Pastor Neli helps us put on the armour of God. Continuing from the Book of Ephesians we are encouraged to be part of God's army. Are we going to sit idly by while the enemy takes this nation towards his plans and purpose? It's going to take a real Ephesians 6:18 generation to fight the good fight which has already been won by Jesus.
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people

Continuing our "In Christ" series Pastor Neli brings us True North and how we can grow in maturity as we grow together, but we must know where we're going first. Reflecting from Ephesians 5 we know we're on the right path when we start to imitate God. We will walk in love for the people around us, walk in light of transparency, and walk wisely so we don't waste our time and efforts on things which will distract us from God's purpose for our life.
Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

Join us as we continue our In Christ series. Pastor Neli guides us through Ephesians 4 and poses the question, if we were created for oneness with God then how should we respond? In unity and maturity. God's glorification in our maturity is through our servitude. We are lead by the Spirit of God to do what we are called to do. A mature Christian sees service as worship to God.
I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

Join us today as we welcome our special guest speaker Every Nation Philippines Missions Director Pastor Michael Paderes. Pastor Michael compares Godly Leadership to Worldly/Secular leadership and asks us the question, "To whom are we leading people to?" Are we leading people to ourselves or Jesus Christ? Are we building our personal kingdom or the kingdom of God? This will define the kind of leader we are.
For I know that through your prayers and the help of the Spirit of Jesus Christ this will turn out for my deliverance, as it is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be at all ashamed, but that with full courage now as always Christ will be honored in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain

Join us this week as we continue our "In Christ" series. Pastor Tina Atiga steps us through chapter 3 from the Book of Ephesians and reminds us to be rooted and grounded in love. It has always been God's choice to lay his life down for you. God will not change a certain situation to benefit you. He will change your perception by changing your heart. Is there anything in your heart right now that is fuelling you to try and look good?
For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

We continue into Week 2 of our "In Christ" series. Pastor Neli follows on from the Book of Ephesians when he's asking us the type of life we want to lead. Are we focused too much on the things that are temporary or are our mind and hearts fix on what is eternal. The Gospel takes effect when you realise you're dead. Dead in your trespasses. Of all the 7+ billions people in the world, God chooses you to reveal His Grace.
But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.

As we draw an end to 2017 we draw an end to another series. Finishing our series Called Out, Pastor Neli encourages us to be bold and be prepared to do amazing things by the grace of God. Acts 28 is not the end of the church. It's not what Jesus had died for. The men and women in the Book of Acts were able to do amazing things because they knew they had the Holy Spirit as their safety net. Who will be your safety net in 2018? Who is the one you trust in? How you answer that will determine how you enter into the next season.
Therefore let it be known to you that this salvation of God has been sent to the Gentiles; they will listen.” He lived there two whole years at his own expense, and welcomed all who came to him, 31 proclaiming the kingdom of God and teaching about the Lord Jesus Christ with all boldness and without hindrance.
