What’s in a Name? – Lois Willis

Do you know who God says you are? Do you know that you are loved, chosen, wanted, God’s handiwork? Do you know of the life-changing and empowering implications that rooting your identity in Christ entails on your life?

Take stock this week of how you view yourself – or how the world views you – and compare it to how God views you. His opinion of us is infinitely better than anyone else’s. Join Ps Lois Willis as she explores our identity in Christ in this week’s message, ‘What’s in a Name?’

Living Life Ordained – Simon Taylor

It’s time to break off the shackles and the lies of the enemy and live our lives as we truly are: ordained! Each of us are called by God to reveal His goodness and work out His will upon the earth. Nothing and no one can stop us when we’re in the will of God! But how do we outwork such a high calling on our lives?

Join Ps Simon Taylor in this week’s podcast as he delves into the hows and whys of living life ordained.

Fear Not – Phil Pringle

If anything is clear in times of difficulty and upheaval – whether in our personal or corporate lives – it’s that God is far closer than we will ever know! He is an ever-present help in times of trouble, and we have nothing to fear.

On Father’s Day, we are encouraged to hear from the father of our movement, Ps Phil Pringle. Listen in as he passes on the encouragement of our Father in heaven: “Fear not!”

A Tale of Two Daughters – Chris Denham

We all have issues. Difficulties in circumstance, health issues, and lies we’ve come to believe about ourselves just name a few. Though we are never too far from the grace of God.

Just one touch from Jesus is enough to satisfy! It’s enough to heal, to restore, and to affirm. Listen to this message from Ps Chris Denham and remind yourself of the hope and resurrection life that Jesus offers.

Stockholm Syndrome – Jenny Gilpin

Let’s not become enamoured with what’s keeping us from moving boldly into all God has for us. Fear. Resignation. Settling for smallness. Retraction. These things can hold us hostage: we’ve got to see them for what they are and fight to break free!

Tune in to this week’s podcast with Ps Jenny Gilpin as she exposes the Stockholm Syndrome hindering our walk with God.

Fundamental Facts – Tebo Mpanza

It’s time to go back to basics. What makes our lives worth living? How can we have total trust in God? What fears; what insecurities do we need to let go of? 

It’s no longer about performance. Let’s flip our perspective.

Tune into this week’s podcast message as Ps Tebo Mpanza unpacks the fundamental facts of the Christian life.

Take it to the Limit – Dave Gilpin

(One More Time)

No one knows their limits because what was your limit yesterday is no longer your limit today! You’ve grown and your limits have too! What God does, however, when you are at your limits of time, patience, strength and talent is extraordinary. This is where the greatest downloads of heaven take place. And this is where God wants you to live out your life. He’s so committed to it, He’ll regularly leave little Post It note reminders to nudge you back into place. Why? Cause He’s the download King.

The Messy Middle – Louise Davies

Right now, we’re in The Messy Middle. We’re experiencing losses, a slowing down, a redirection of purpose and changes to our daily rhythm. It’s been confusing and difficult to adjust. Though even in these challenging times, there’s joy to be had! Listen to Ps Lou Davies today as she encourages us to reclaim our joy in the midst of this trying season.

Are We There Yet? – Jenny Gilpin

In our changing world, it is so easy to have a fluctuating faith! We’re all-in one moment, and completely doubting the next. But how can we remain steadfast and consistently trust in God in the face of changing winds? In the face of uncertainty? In our impatience in getting to our destination? Senior Pastor Jenny Gilpin brings reassurance in this message as she unpacks the story of Moses leading the Israelites to the Promised Land, via a route none of them were expecting.

Let’s Do This Again – Chris Denham

This is an unprecedented season for us all.  In unprecedented moments, God can do unprecedented things. Today’s sermon emphasises the importance of remembering God’s work in our lives, it is important to know that God is more than able to deliver us from this valley again and again. It’s easier to step out in faith when we see God move over and over again. God is calling out to you today to go again. Let’s do this, again.

Step Maker – Dave Gilpin

A lot of us think that there’s a giant leap of faith that we have to undertake in order to follow God through the wilderness and into our own personal Canaan flowing with milk and honey. Yet no one has ever undertaken a leap of faith either within the Bible or without. The Bible never mentions leaps- only steps. It’s the steps of faith that lead to the vaults of heaven. God is your step maker. He makes steps- good steps that eventually lead to new levels of blessing and influence. Steps belong to man. Success belongs to God.

Head Down, Eyes Up, Go – Mark Ritchie

In this Easter message, guest speaker Mark Ritchie encourages us in our ‘mess’ and points us to Christ and the power of the cross.

Speaking from Mark 16, he demonstrates how in the midst of the unknown, our default is to just keep our heads down and get on with things, but that through the promise of Christ’s life we can lift our eyes and receive His hope. In turn, this encourages us to go and share this hope with our world!

We pray this message fills you with the joy and peace of Christ!

Happy Easter!

Don’t Shrink Back – Mabel Wong

The attitudes we have in times of uncertainty determines our outcome at the end of it.  Today’s sermon expounds on the posture we ought to take up when going through an unprecedented season such as this. We need not be anxious or worried because as the body of Christ, we carry the authority of God. Preached by Mabel Wong, live at Hope City Church in Kuala Lumpur.

Makes Me Wanna Pray – Dave Gilpin

Most prayers have a lot to do with making us better, more holy and more acceptable to God. They’re about all we can do for God. Yet the Bible declares we love him BECAUSE He first loved us. To ask God to firstly show you His glory is not ancillary but mandatory to rekindling our love affair with heaven and then swimming the deepest oceans because of it. For many, it’s the more excellent prayer.

Shock Proof – Jenny Gilpin

There is a birthing in this time and in this season that will be unprecedented. A birthing of men and women with a different spirit. A fearless spirit.

In this message Pastor Jenny, encourages us to stand firm in the midst of a shock. To still our hearts and minds and hold onto God and the promises He has spoken. To be strong and courageous.

Rage Against Beige – Dave Gilpin

Pastor Dave Gilpin has a theory that many believers were more ‘exciting’ before they believed than after they believed! Before they were rescued by Christ, they spent their weekends painting the town red. Now they spend their weekends painting the church beige! 

Why is that? Believers should be the most passionate, creative and adventurous people on the planet? Listen to his keynote message to find out.

Planet Shaker – Dave Gilpin

What to do when the planet shakes. 

Recently while in New Zealand, Pastor Dave Gilpin celebrated his 60th birthday by going on the world’s largest catapult. The scariest time, he says, was not the beginning nor the end, but the transition time when his feet left the ground.

Whenever our lives have changed for good there’s always  been a shaking- a removing of the old to make way for the coming of the new. No one has ever enjoyed it but it’s catapulted them into a higher life. 

Our world right now is undergoing a shaking like never before. Uncertainty has replaced certainty in every part of life. 

It could also be a ‘transition time’ that could lead to the greatest awakening of faith the world has ever seen.

Glory Days (Part Two) It’s Right In Front Of You – Ian Harding

Who lives in a House like this? – Chris Denham

Courageous Faith – Jo Willis

The glory days are something we so often look at as something that’s behind us, but more than ever before we believe that it’s something God is leading us into. 

The way we access them? Courageous faith. And one of the most surprising people to make it into the Hebrews 11 ‘Hall of Faith’ was Samson. This message attempts to unravel the mystery as to why
