Our negative assumptions about our family members prevent us from pursuing reconciliation, resulting in only a “disguised harmony” or even conflicts in our family. Learning from the reconciliation of Esau and Jacob, we should put our trust not in our own assumptions but in God’s power to change hearts, and practice “forgetful forgiveness”, because …

Lotus seeds represent the blessings of bringing forth offspring one after another. This applies to our spiritual community as we think about how to serve the community better. Today, we study how Barnabas multiplies spiritual leaders (Paul and John Mark) and how we, both as individuals and as a church, should do the same thing.…

We all want to be more Godly. But it’s hard to know exactly what to do in order to be more Godly. We put our effort into trying many things, but are there specific things that we can place greater emphasis upon? We explore Peter’s letter to find out what those things are.Από τον Kevin Kusunoki

With the new year quickly approaching, many people take the time to set new goals for themselves. Some set goals to be physically healthier, others set goals to learn something new. But what about our spiritual lives? Are there ways we can grow spiritually as we head into the new year? We kick off this sermon series by looking at different rhythms …

Our Christian is a deeply personal faith, but we don’t stop there. God’s heart is for us to bring health and well-being to the people we are in touch with and even to the the city where we live and called home. So, what is God’s plan for us and the city?Από τον Albert Ng

In Hong Kong, families are struggling as couples shy away from having children while marriages face unexpected difficulties. Even though our homes are experiencing challenges, it’s important to remember that to God, families matter. Not only are they essential for the well-being and thriving of society, but they also play a vital role in advancing …

Over 60% of our waking hours are spent in the workplace. If we aren’t flourishing there, then we aren’t flourishing in life. Unfortunately, many people in Hong Kong have an adverse relationship with work. What is the solution to the problem of work? Work less? Work a job that you have passion for? Work a job that compensates well? In this sermon we…

Let’s be honest. Sometimes God is hard to figure out. Sometimes our expectations are not met, and we are left confused, disappointed, and maybe even, spiritually numb. So what are we supposed to do with our doubts? How can we honestly turn our doubts into sincere faith?Από τον Brett Hilliard

It’s easy to give lip-service to the idea that God provides. It’s another thing to actually believe it with our lives. How do we really grow our belief about the provision of God? In this sermon, we look at Jesus’ question “Do you still not understand?” to see if there is a secret ingredient to having greater faith.…

At the conclusion of the Sermon on the Plain in the sixth chapter of Luke, Jesus poses a poignant question to His listeners. In summary, He asks them, “You’ve just heard me give you clear commandments, so why do you not do what I say?” On top of that, His question puts every listener and reader on the spot by making us all ask ourselves, “Do I real…

Jesus asks His disciples, “who do you say I am?” It is a question that they struggle to answer with great clarity. We take a deep dive into their answers and examine what contributed to their misunderstandings, before we assess how we might also answer the question incorrectly.Από τον Kevin Kusunoki

Drift always moves toward chaos. It takes intentionality and focus to ensure spiritual drift doesn’t occur in your life. Demas is a man who started well, and sadly ended in desertion. What can we learn from his life to prevent the same disaster in our own?Από τον Brett Hilliard

Some names are included in scripture as warning signs for us. Diotrephes is such a man. His ungodly character was a nemesis to Paul, and a stumbling block to the growth of the church. So don’t be like him. But first you’ve got to understand what makes him so unsavoury.Από τον Brett Hilliard

Do you feel encouraged or disheartened today? Are you an encouragement to those around you or do you discourage others? Come and learn from Barnabas, a micro character in the bible that has a major impact in the world. Come and discover the undeniably amazing power and influence of encouragement!Από τον Daniel Tse

We know that gossip can be dangerous, but it also feels really good. Gossip helps us vent our frustrations and gives us something interesting to talk about. Is gossip really all that bad? And if so, how seriously should we fight against it? We look to the book of Proverbs to find wisdom about this neglected topic.…

We communicate with people every single day, but the person we talk to the most is ourselves. And the words we choose to speak to ourselves are some of the most powerful words we encounter. How do we formulate our thoughts? What lies are we telling ourselves and how can we overcome them with the truth? Today, we will look at a Psalm that deals with…

Today is the first of two Baptism Sundays! It’s always a great celebration in our church. While baptism is an outward expression of an inward faith, it is also a snapshot of a bigger story, or testimony, of what God has done in our lives. Today, as we celebrate the stories and baptisms of our brothers and sisters, we are going to look at two of the…

Many people desire to have mentorship relationships. However the sad reality is that many of us have no idea how to engage in that form of discipleship. We look to the story of Elijah and Elisha to learn about the building blocks of successful discipleship.Από τον Kevin Kusunoki

The book of Ruth usually – and rightfully so – highlights the relationship between Ruth and Boaz. This story is a powerful tale of redemption that points to our ultimate redemption in Christ. Today, however, we will focus on the journey of Ruth and her mother-in-law Naomi and how we can glean some great truth and encouragement from this beautiful r…

Work relationships are among the most important ones we have. Unfortunately, these too often are also among the hardest ones. Examination of the hierarchical relationship between Saul and David, as recorded in 1 Samuel, yields applicable principles for making the best of problematic work relationships.…

Perhaps the greatest force for change in your life is your friends. You become like those you surround yourself with. So for Christ followers, friendship is more than a collection of good people, but rather a spiritual discipline to bring about the change God desires for you.Από τον Brett Hilliard

From the earliest of times, every human being has learned how to let themselves off the hook. We are adept at providing reasons for our behaviour (or misbehaviour). But instead of making excuses, what would our life be like if we were simply honest with ourselves and those around us?Από τον Brett Hilliard

We all have people we want to evangelise to. Problem is: we don’t know how to. What do we do when the people we love and care about don't want to hear the gospel message? We kick off our “it takes two” relationship-focused sermon series by studying Paul’s unique relationship with his jailer.Από τον Kevin Kusunoki

The parable of the lost sons gives us great insight into the depths of our own souls, and offers a freedom and understanding that transforms our religion into relationship. The resurrection was never intended to make us religious.Από τον Brett Hilliard

For many people, being righteous is an unattainable goal. As much as we try to live a holy lifestyle, we still make mistakes and sin. But Jesus actually gives us clear instructions on how to live a righteous life, and it’s not how we might expect. In this parable we learn about the devastation of sin and the importance of humility.…
