What is Peace?

In this Carols by Candlelight Service, Chris asks us what real peace is in the world today. He reminds us that we can know peace through Christ’s blood shed on the cross and the hope that we have in Him.

Creation’s Completion

History has a direction and a purpose.  Knowing the destination helps the believer to wait eagerly and patiently for their hope to be fulfilled.  God’s wonderful plan is to bring all of creation including us to fulfil our intended purpose.  This means that our lives now have meaning, purpose and direction too.

Christians in Science

Chris Johnson is a Christian and a Scientist. In this talk he seeks to encourage scientists to examine the evidence for Christian faith and Christians to acknowledge science as a means of discovering more about God’s creation.

Holy Spirit in Us

Chris seeks to apply what we have learnt during our recent series on the Holy Spirit to Burwell Baptist Church. He highlights two potential errors (Dispensationalism and Emotionalism) before outlining the orderly worship which the Apostle Paul commends. Chris also answers questions including “what is the point of speaking in tongues?”

Holy Spirit in Church

As church is the gathering of people saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit, Holy Spirit must be at the heart of every healthy church. Chris reviews the evidences of the Spirit’s presence in the New Testament church and outlines the marks of a Spirit-filled church today. We then seek to keep in step with the Spirit by seeking His gifts of healing.

Holy Spirit in Jesus

Jesus’ birth, teaching, power, sacrificial death and resurrection were all the result of the work of the Spirit. Jesus told the disciples that because He lived with them the Spirit lived with them and would one day live in them. Having reflected on what the life and teaching of Jesus reveal about Holy Spirit, Chris outlines how we are seeking to respond as a church.
