During August we have an exciting mini preaching series called ‘Big Issues’. These are key areas of the Christian faith where, to put it politely, there is much room for debate - subjects that are hotly contested not just between Christians and atheists but also amongst believers themselves.
As the series will no doubt reveal, the Christian faith consists of beliefs that are either ‘negotiable’ or ‘non-negotiable’. One non-negotiable for example (quite clearly stated in the bible) is that in order to be a Christian you need to believe in the resurrection of Jesus (hotly debated in our home group a few weeks ago). It’s a non-negotiable belief because our salvation as Christians is totally dependent on Christ’s resurrection from the dead. Without it we are lost and much to be pitied.
‘Negotiables’ however allow for differences of opinion without compromising core beliefs, and include such things as ‘Why does God allow suffering?’, ‘Free will or predestination?’, ‘To speak up or remain quiet?’, ‘Is it possible to avoid sin as a Christian?’ ‘End times theology’, etc.
It will be good to look at some of these big issues over the summer.
Our sermons are by a variety of preachers including elders of the church, other church members with a preaching/ prophetic gift, and guest speakers.
Our sermons are recorded and are available to stream live or to download.
A set of study notes
are usually produced, which are useful for group or individual study.
We trust that God will bless and speak to you as you listen to the sermons and study his word.
