The Holy Spirit is often the least-understood person of the Trinity, so this week we are embarking on a three-week study into who He is and His purposes on this earth.
Grab a notepad and settle into this teaching this week as Ps Jo Willis guides us through the Holy Spirit’s fit, function and focus; and delves into the significance of various words to describe His nature, one being the Hebrew ‘neshama’: the breath of life.
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.
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.
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.
You would think that we are living in a time where people know their worth but the reality of this generation is that people don’t know what real confidence is.
We live in a ‘value crisis generation’, which makes it difficult to know how much God love’s us. As a new creation a journey of allowing God to change, form and transition you from your previous mindset brings Confident Faith because God way is always better.
Ps Georgie encourages that as believers, we are to lift our heads and hearts to walk out as people who carry a Confident Faith, knowing that God wants us to be completely set free.
So much of what we live in tomorrow is based on what we are building today.
The legacy we leave in the future has the ability to break open areas in our world not just for the kingdom of heaven but for others to follow in as well but the question we have to ask ourselves before we get there we have to ask ourselves one question. What are we building?
Your ability to belong is inextricably linked to your gifting being released and without it giants of intimidation will continue to threaten our future. But God has built a giant slayer into each one of us, uniquely gifting us to take down giants both personally and on behalf of others, and it happens as we are we are planted in the soil of community and flourish beside the stream of the Holy Spirit. Understand that there are stages to belonging; it takes something of us, and as we move through them, God transforms us to become giant slayers on behalf of a generation.
Defiance in the right space can be a good thing. We often see defiance as being in a position of strength standing firm against the things that oppose us. And yet, Daniel’s defiance was found humbly on his knees in prayer. Take a knee and see the astounding ways in which God will move on your behalf.

The world urges us to occupy the smallest space, but God wants us to occupy wide open spaces. Don’t downsize God to the level of your thinking or expectations. Live the Big life God has called you in to!
Life is a series of choices. But how do we know what the right decision is? Nothing is more important than hearing God’s voice and being able to distinguish it from the voices of the world. Pastor Tebo gives insight into how we can tell if God is speaking to us.
Identity. Not knowing who we are is one of the greatest struggles of our generation. When you know who you are in Christ, you’re empowered to live God’s destined life for you. Don’t let the enemy rob you of your identity – you’re verified!
Transition is the process of changing from one state or condition to another. As followers of Christ we are always in transition, but sometimes these transitions can feel like we’re being tossed around by the wind and waves. Pastor Tebo teaches us how we can cling to Jesus during the storms of transition.
We often ask the question: Is God good all the time? Pastor Tebo encourages us to bring our perspective and focus back to the absolute truth that God is good. The foundation of all hope is the goodness of God.
Revival demands and requires that we step up to the next
level. But sometimes we find ourselves in a place where we feel unable to level
up. Why is this? Join us as Ronia encourages us how to keep elevating in life.

Jesus was never overwhelmed with things. The Sabbath is the metronome that keeps us in time with God’s rhythm. Part 3 of the Sabbath Series checks in on following and trusting the rhythm of God, declaring freedom over our time and confidence in our identity. Preached by Ps Joel Burden live at Hope City Church in Kuala Lumpur.
One of the most exciting things about life is the opportunities that it presents us. Pastor Becky poses the question: Are our eyes open to these opportunities, or do we see them as obstacles and opposition?

Practicing what you preach, Teach through your acts of faith and keep your integrity. These are just a few of the points discussed in this message by Ps Becky Mpanza as she unpacks ‘Defining Your Standards’ a message that is a continuation of the ‘Savage’ series.
Ps Jeff Lucas shares his salvation story through the lenses of his ‘confused’ 17year old self to express the power of prayer.
In the book of Acts the description of the Early Church was that they were ordinary people who were devoted. Their journey included authentic and real experiences of both victories and struggles.
This message helps you to understand and see the similarities and differences between Church as we know now and the Early Church. However, despite this the only thing that has stay the same through out the ages is the Love of God for his people. His devoted people.
When you try to step out in faith and do something great there is always opposition. The enemy doesn’t target the lukewarm of faith, but those who burn passionately for God. Listen in as Pastor Tebo addresses how we can deal with spiritual opposition.

We can approach our lives thinking that there is a distribution problem in heaven – we see others being blessed with gifts, whilst we are seemingly forgotten. The grass always looks greener on the other side. Perhaps heaven doesn’t have a distribution dilemma, so much as we have a recognition dilemma. Pastor Gosia encourages us to shift our perception to see heaven’s blessing as doors of opportunity rather than neatly packaged gifts.
Every pioneer has to wrestle with idealism. The world isn’t as perfect as we imagine – there will always be bumps on the road, especially in this Christian life. God is looking for pioneers who won’t be dissuaded when things don’t go to plan.
