Wake-up Calls

Posted by Eric Farmer on

I’m confident if we all thought for a moment, we could remember some close calls in our life. Events that could have easily gone either way and changed the fate of that day, that trip or that relationship. Maybe you were a teenager and almost got caught by your parents, maybe you were a...

Onward, Christian Soldiers

Posted by Gary Morris on

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And...

Cry Out for Mercy

Posted by Jo Ann Yau on

“… and you will be My witnesses…” Acts 1:8 With cheery rounds of ‘Happy New Year’ still ringing in our ears, we have spent these first few weeks of 2018 draped in sorrow as someone we loved died an agonising death without Christ. There are no words for...

Holy Matrimony

He Came to Be in the Fire

Posted by Karlson Wong on

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10 I attended a wedding a few weeks back and really lost myself in tears during worship (love it when that happens!). We...
