The Faithful Church | Ashwin Ramani | November 19, 2023
The church in Philadelphia remained faithful in the midst of many oppositions. They remained faithful in holding on to God’s Word and fulfilling their mission even when they had limited strength. Jesus encourages them to persevere by fixing their eyes on the promises of the future.

Reviving a Dead Church | Ashwin Ramani | October 29, 2023
The church at Sardis looked good on the outside, but they operated in their human strength without the power of the Holy Spirit. According to Jesus, though Sardis had a reputation, in reality it was as good as dead. The call to wake up is a sobering reminder that we desperately need revival and the fullness of the Holy Spirit today.
The Church Without Conviction
Convictions serve to anchor the church and sets us apart from the world. When the church accommodates to the cultural mandates, it loses its bearings. This was the main message of Jesus to the Church at Thyatira.

The Persecuted Church | Ashwin Ramani | September 24, 2023
The Church in Smyrna faced intense persecution because of their devotion to Christ. Jesus calls them to be faithful even to the point of death. Even today, persecution is inevitable and we are called to persevere till the very end as followers of Christ in light of our future rewards.

Living for God's Glory | Ashwin Ramani | September 3, 2023
As we look at the life of Moses we see a template of how God brings transformation in our lives.
Pursuing God | Ashwin Ramani | August 27, 2023
God told the Israelites that He would take them to the Promised Land, but He would not go with them. In his conversation with God, Moses affirmed that God was more important than the land of promise. As Christian believers, we ought to long for the presence of Jesus even more than heaven. Let’s delight in God Himself and not just His blessings.

Dealing with Failures | Ashwin Ramani | August 6, 2023
Israel had a huge setback when they violated the terms of their covenant with God after experiencing a series of spiritual highs. God hears Moses’ intercession on behalf of the people and responds by giving them another chance. Because of Christ's intercession on our behalf, God extends compassion and mercy when Christian believers stumble and fall.
The Way You Should Go | Matt Schorr | July 30, 2023

Tabernacle - A Picture of Worship | Ashwin Ramani | July 23, 2023
Exodus 25-30 Tabernacle:
God came to dwell among His people through the construction of the Tabernacle. He has always desired to fellowship with humans, and this theme runs through the Bible. The entire tabernacle, along with the various furniture items, points to Jesus, who stepped down from heaven as the embodiment of God’s presence.
Making Sense of OT Laws | Ashwin Ramani | July 16, 2023
How do the ancient laws of the OT apply in our day and age? It is helpful to glean the timeless principles behind the laws and do a cultural transfer. Since we belong to the New Covenant, we interpret these laws through the lens of the finished work of Jesus Christ.
Final Three Commandmants
The final three commandments focuses again on our relationships with one another. In order for our individual and communal life to thrive we need to adhere to these commandments.
Honoring One Another | Ashwin Ramani | July 02, 2023
Honouring One Another addresses our horizontal relationships. Commandments five, six and seven calls us to Honor Parents, Honor Life, and Honor Marriage.
Glorifying God Through Pursuing Mission Together | Henry Schorr | June 25 2023
Honouring God | Ashwin Ramani | June 18, 2023
The first four commandments revolve around our relationship with God and serves to strengthen the vertical dimension of our life. Rather than rules that restrict, these commandments are freeing and offer life to the full. Honoring God means – we give Him total allegiance, we worship Him alone, we represent Him rightly to those around and we take time in our schedule to cultivate our relationship with Him.

Set Apart For God | Kent Priebe | May 21, 2023
Israel was set apart for God as a nation to function as priests and reveal God’s character to the nations. There are three things God highlights in this text: Israel was a treasured possession, a priestly kingdom, and a holy nation. In 1 Pet 2:9, the Apostle Peter uses similar language to refer to the church. The church has been set apart as a community of priests and we are called to reveal God to the world and reconcile them to God.

State of the Church
Saved To Serve | Ashwin Ramani | April 23 2023
Moses was overwhelmed by the leadership responsibilities and caring for the vast population of the Israelites. Jethro’s advice about delegating the responsibilities to other capable leaders was priceless. Ministry in the church operates according to a similar principle: we share the task by using our unique gifts in the Lord’s service. God has saved us so we may serve Him in freedom!
God’s Plan for the Nations | Ashwin Ramani | April 16, 2023
When Moses recounted the story of Exodus, his father-in-law, Jethro, a Midianite priest, affirmed his faith in the God of Israel. This incident depicts God’s desire to reveal Himself to the nations through the events of the Exodus. It is also a pointer to the greater Exodus and God’s plan for the nations to come to the worship of God through Jesus Christ.

Glorifying God By Accepting One Another in Disputable Matters | Dr. Henry Schorr | March 26, 2023
Romans 14:1-12 As Christ followers, it is critical we are unified in the 'essentials' of our faith. However, there are many behaviors, practices and lifestyle choices that the Bible does not specifically or fully speak to, often resulting in division and conflict among Christians. In Romans 14, the Apostle Paul refers to these as 'disputable matters'. The question Paul addresses is 'How do we stay unified and love each other as Christians when we don't agree on things the Bible is silent on or doesn't specifically speak to?"
God Our Banner
In the wilderness, the Israelites faced an unprovoked attack from the Amalekites. Responding to this opposition called for the Israelites to respond in prayer and fight the battle. When we face opposition from the enemy that hinders God’s plan for our lives, it calls for prayer and effort on our part. The Lord reveals yet another name in this passage: that He is our banner, and in Him we have victory!
God Is Enough
How do we respond to life's uncertainties and hardships? If we are not careful, we can seek to manipulate or force God to meet our perceived needs. God wants us to seek Him first and find our contentment in Him. The provision of waters at Rephidim is a reference to the living waters Jesus offers all who trust in Him.
Staying Confident in your Identity
Travis Wilkins shares on identity and how our best option is to find it in Jesus.
Glorifying God through a Life Well Lived
The Apostle Paul challenges us to 'wake up from our slumber' and to give our lives to the two things that will last forever: to love God and to love people. So how do we love and glorify God by loving people?
Glorifying God through Submitting to Authorities
What is our responsibility as Christians to those who are in authority over us, including our governing authorities?" What does it mean to submit to our governing authorities? Are there Biblical exceptions to obeying government directives? These questions and more are addressed in this part of God's Word
God our Provider
The Israelites experience God's gracious provision of manna and quail in the wilderness. It was a reminder of God's care for them. Even today, in our wilderness journey, God graciously provides for our needs.
Glorifying God Through Loving our Enemies
Paul teaches us how to love those who seem to have it out for us, those who hurt us and feel like enemies, whether in or outside of the church. What does a Godly love look like in these circumstances? This message will not only encourage you but will also provide you with some practical Biblical guidance in how to respond when experiencing relational tension or conflict.
Known by God
We all want to know and understand our identity, we spend hours trying to figure out. Pastor Ben encourages us to look to God for our identity not the world.
God Our Healer
God is our great Physician and no healing comes apart from Him. He is able to restore our health and bring healing in all domains. In this text God reveals Himself as Jehovah Rapha – our Healer.
God specializes in the art of making a way where there seems to be no way. Our part in the process is to be still and let Him be God.
Glorifying God in our Relationships
The Apostle Paul teaches what it means to glorify God in our relationships. Every time we love someone the way God loves us, we are worshiping and glorifying God. Paul teaches us what it practically means to love others the way the Lord loves us.
Romans 12: 9-13
Glorifying God through Serving
God's fundamental will for us is that we would love Him with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength and that we would glorify Him in all we say and do. We glorify God when we surrender our lives and our bodies to Him, when we embrace the mind and the way of Christ, when we see ourselves as He sees us and when we use the gifts He has given to us.
Following God's Guidance
God delights to guide His children along the paths He has prepared for them. But His ways can be unexpected and even unnerving at times. Following God’s guidance does not guarantee a smooth journey, we don’t always understand the twists and turns, but He will lead us to the destination He has in mind for our lives.
Turn the World Upside Down
Speaker: Taylor Woodburn
The God who Pursues
The God of the Bible is not passively waiting on the sidelines; He is a God who pursues us. He reveals Himself to all who are truly seeking.
