Community With No Mention of Acts

By Faith, Hope, Love, Market Harborough

In Acts 2:42 we read about  “The Fellowship of the Believers”, and whilst this teaches us valuable lessons concerning how the community of believers should operate it is important to remember that a doctrine cannot be taken from one passage of scripture, and that the bible interprets itself and has numerous themes running through it

This morning we are going to discover how community, being together and fellowship are vital to the life of the chirch and that this theme and purpose runs through scripture starting at Genesis

A Cord of Three Strands

By Central, Faith, Hope, Love

The apostle Paul commended the Thessalonians for their work of Faith, labour of Love and steadfastness of Hope (1 Thess 1.3). In this message we’ll start to build on our existing definitions for these three great aspects of our life in God’s Kingdom. And we’ll also consider how together, working in unison, they can prove to be a cord of three strands for us all (Eccl 4.12).

David’s Faith

By Faith, Hope, Love, Market Harborough

In Luke’s account of Jesus calming a storm, Jesus asks his disciples ‘Where is your faith?, implying that the disciples had faith but it couldn’t be seen. In today’s all-age gathering we consider ways in which we can stir our own faith so that it is visible to ourselves and those around us.

Who Do We Have Faith In?

Who we have faith in is a hugely important question. A.W. Tozer says that ‘What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.’ With this in mind we’ll ask these 3 questions: Should we know God? Can we know God? And does knowing who God is make any practical difference to our lives? With the response to all of this being, God help me to know you better!

I So Hope So?

By Faith, Hope, Love, Market Harborough

Hope, often gets side-lined, it’s a little ambiguous to some it is often misinterpreted as the opposite to faith, “I wasn’t in faith, or I don’t have faith for that, but I can just hope?”. Just to be clear the opposite of faith is fear. The opposite of hope is doubt and confusion – a lack of direction or focus. Hope is important! Hope is not wishing for something to happen. The Bible describes hope much differently. The world is full of people hoping:

Their children’s future
Their own futures
Will their money last?
Will they stay in health?
Will they win the lottery?

So, this morning I want to get straight into the definition and unpack hope, to see how it strengthen our lives.

Reasons for Hope

By Central, Faith, Hope, Love

If someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it. (1 Peter 3:15, NLT)

We’re living in days where hope is in short supply, or just in the wrong things. In such days, God’s people are called to hold out rock solid hope, which is based on the person and work of Christ, rooted in eternity, guaranteed with the seal of the Holy Spirit, evidenced by lives full of Jesus’ resurrection power; and from which none are excluded. In this message, we consider why these five essential reasons explain the glorious hope we have.
