2017 Sermon Themes

The Aims of this Sermon Series:

  1. Disciple-Making: We want the church to become a place where discipleship is normal, where each disciple grows to become more like Jesus in loving God, loving believers and loving our neighbours. The vision for transformation goes beyond preaching, Bible study and church activities. This is the compelling vision of God to see people grow into the image of Christ “For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son…” (Romans 8:29). It was a driving passion in Paul’s life and often moved him deeply. “My dear children, for whom I am again in the pains of childbirth until Christ is formed in you…” (Galatians 4:19). At the heart of this vision is life change and we taking confidence in the Holy Spirit to be our agent of change.
  2. Church Vision, Mission and Direction: Through our regular Sunday services, we want to connect our members with what God is doing in his Kingdom. Our regular Sunday services offer us a strategic opportunity to address and make sense of some of the key emphases and objectives of the whole church in the context of the local congregation. We want to help each congregation see their vision, mission and direction in the context of that of the wider church body. What you will find in our new sermon series is that it provides a strategic starting point (not a solution) to address these key emphases.
