We are very serious about studying what the Bible truely says. We dont want man's opinions, thoughts, ideas, traditions or strategies. We want to know the very thoughts, desires and will of God. The only way to do that is to study the Bible and to understand and know what He actually thinks and says. The Bible has often been misrepresented by churches that exalt their own words as more important than God's Word. The Bible's wonderful message of freedom and reality has often been obscured by religion, hypocricy and compromise. Its truth has been hidden under a pile of man-made lies and tadition.
The Fight of Faith
In this new Sunday morning series we look at the true meaning of the Fight of Faith. We begin by defining and explaining What Faith is, then looking at the Fight that faith faces. The Old Testament scriptures, with it fighters, warriors, wars, conflicts, and enemies is literally a War Manual for the Church of the New Testament to use and learn from. In this series we will teach lessons on how to fight lions, bears, and giants. How to run through a troop, jump over walls, remove mountains, endure suffering and persecution, and stand when others flee. All of this is accomplished by faith. We live in a generation where easy believism has destroyed the ability of Christians to fight, win, overcome, and to raise up a testimony unto Christ.
Join us at 74 O'Connell Street, each Sunday morning at 11am.
Wednesday Night Bible Studies
Assurance of Salvation
In this new Bible Study on Wednesday nights we will look at what the Bible teaches about the Assurance of Salvation. The word Assurance in the Bible means, to carry out a full investigation, a full search, until you receive an entire confidence, become completely assured, convinced, and persuaded, that your assurance is genuine! We will look at what the Bible says a true Christian is, How you can know that your assurance is true and false, How you can find assurance of salvation and enjoy the blessing of it. Many people call themselves Christians or born again who are actually rebels against the teaching of God's Word. Such people have no right to assurance. But to those who meekly, humbly, and sincerely seek the person of Christ and salvation from sin, God promises full abundant satisfying assurance.
Join us at 74 O'Connell Street, each Wednesday Night at 7.30pm.
We have enjoyed a beautiful wedding season over recent months in the church with two beautiful weddings and we have also taught on the marriage covenant on Wednesday nights. Hidden within the marriage covenant between one man and one woman is a picture of Christ and the Church.
By God's grace each week we come to the Bible with open hearts to let the Lord speak to us in a real way. If you have a desire for truth, if you want to learn about the reality of a real walk with God, if you have a sincere desire to be changed then please join us at our Bible study. You will be most welcome. If you do not own a Bible we will make sure you receive one.
Each year the Bible out-sells every other book in the world. It is the worlds best-seller but more importantly it is God's Word to man. It is a unique book. More Bibles have been produced than any other book in history. It is estimated that between 2.5 billion and 6 billion Bibles have been sold. The second bestseller of all time is Mao Chong’s Chinese Little Red Book, which has sold about 900 million copies.
Daniel Radosh wrote in The New Yorker: “The familiar observation that the Bible is the best-selling book of all time obscures a more startling fact: the Bible is the best-selling book of the year, every year.” He also stated that ‘The year that Harry Potter hit its highest sales, twice as many Bibles were sold in the same year. It has been translated into over 2200 languages which covers about 90% of the world’s population. There are almost 4000 other languages still to be reached with 1300 of them in a present process of translation. At this rate all languages could potentially be reached by the year 2023.
