The Powers That Be

In this worship gathering, we hear a message from Revelation 13.1-10 that illustrates how the apostle John shared his vision with the early church, illuminating the Roman Empire for what it was – an ugly beast. We apply the passage to our own situation as we learn to discern what really constitutes persecution. You can watch the whole gathering below, or just the message below that.

Strategic Withdrawal

In this worship gathering, we hear a message from Revelation 12 that helps us understand the cryptic nature of John’s vision of the dragon and the pregnant woman – and how we shouldn’t read contemporary ideas into an ancient text. The story parallels the exodus from the Old Testament, and we look at the importance of retreat as part of our defence against the devil.

Final Boarding Call

It was an interesting morning…we had no electricity in the whole town due to a car that decided to take out a power pole. Without sufficient cellular signal to live-stream worship, we simply recorded the service on a phone, and what you have here is the edited result. We hauled out hymn books and sang some traditional songs that gave us words to unite our voices in praise, despite the lack of power to project words on a screen. In this worship gathering, we hear a message based on Revelation 9 that helps us understand the importance of sharing faith with people who don’t know Jesus, and our fuel, our impetus, is found in the sad judgment that we see in Revelation 9.

The Covenant of Grace: Why Infant Baptism is Biblical

Do you ever wonder if it is biblical to baptize children? In the Reformed tradition, we don’t believe it saves the child, but we do believe it places the child on the path toward profession of faith in Jesus, which does bring salvation. It’s based on Genesis 15, Genesis 17, Colossians 2 and Acts 2. You can watch the whole worship gathering below, or just the message below that.

The four horsemen of the Apocalypse

One of the most popular, yet least understood, passages in Revelation comes in chapter 6 with “the four horsemen of the apocalypse”. What could it all mean? Is there any hope for God’s people, or for the world? In this message, we look at Revelation 6 and what hope it provides for people, before it’s too late.

Who is Worthy?

In this worship gathering, we hear a message from Revelation 5 that focuses on the worthiness of Jesus to open the scroll – thereby demonstrating that he is worthy to care for us amid all the world’s challenges.

Near the end of the message, we watched a video of Andrew Peterson’s song, “Is He Worthy?”, which you can view here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6FEuAr8f6bo
