The Church is God’s design. It is His number one idea! So when Jesus left the earth, what was the intention behind what He left behind?
Explore what was left behind, and the part we play, this week as Ps Lois Willis delves into how we can become more like the early church – the church He sees – and what this means for how we outwork the gospel in our relationships with each other and throughout our world.
As a church, we are on a quest to ask God, “what does the church that you want to build look like?”
In this week’s message, Ps Lois Willis explores the idea that perhaps, up until now, we’ve been stuck in man-made living. But now God has led us, like Jacob, to an altar where we can lay down our old ways and move our lives and the church toward God-made living.
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?’
At our carols service, Lois gives us tips to survive Christmas as well as shares her thoughts as to why God allowed Jesus to be born in a stable. Turning the setback into a set-up and the ordinary into the extraordinary. We pray it encourages you as you reflect over this Christmas time.
“This delay that you may be in is not designed to isolate you but connect you”. Join us live at Hope City Leeds as guest speaker Lois Willis shares with us a powerful message of hope in the delay. God takes us on a journey and the wait is always worth it with him.
From the events surrounding the ‘late’ arrival of Jesus after the death of Lazarus, Lois Willis, from the teaching team of Hope City, analyses why Jesus would ever want to delay a miracle. Not only were people he loved upset by his seeming lack of care, He himself wept at both the loss of His friend and the tension caused by His delay.
This message will shed light on your delays and help you turn your disappointment into expectation.
God specialises in turning your nothing into something – something spectacular. As you realise that nothing is never nothing with God, embrace the power of surrendering your something to God, you’ll then discover EVERYTHING that God has for your life.
This message uncovers the way in which God can turn your nothing, no where, no way areas into abundant places. It will transform the way you see what’s in your hand.
