The Message of the Cross

In this series our aim is not to come up with clever theories about the cross but to reap its benefits, live its life and proclaim its gospel. Chris aims to inspire us to discover again the wonder and power of the cross of Christ. In the first talk he focusses on the revelation which the cross brings about who we are, who God is and how we can be reconciled.

Be Filled with The Spirit – Part 1

Holiness, love and forgiveness are characteristics of the people the Spirit gathers. These are not arbitary religious practices but reflect the relationship within the Trinity and from God towards each of us. We are called to imitate God in expressing these atributes. In this passage Paul highlights the role of sung worship in helping us to speak the truth to each other and express our love for God. The environment of mutual submission which grows in regularly worshipping together is the next step in building a dwelling place for God.
