  1. While facing difficult circumstances, God wants to do a work in us, despite the outcome of our circumstances

  4. Even when we’re on death’s door, God will use us to make an eternal difference in people’s lives, if we’ll allow him to work through us

  6. Jesus completes us & gives us everything we need.
  7. Jesus forgives us. There is no depth too low that He can’t pull us out
  8. Seeking Jesus first doesn’t give us everything money can buy, it gives us everything money can’t buy: peace, fullness, joy

HNTBS Week 7: Cause and Effect

How not to be stupid

The book of Proverbs is known as the Book of Wisdom. It’s full of truths and principles that anyone can apply to their everyday life. In week 7, we explore Proverbs 6 to discover the principle of Cause and Effect which has been adopted by various religions and theologians and we compare it to the gospel message to see if it can remain standing.

Solo Message: Cause and Effect

Solo Messages are stand alone messages that are not associated with a specific message series.

Solo Messages are stand alone messages that are not associated with a specific message series.

We’ve all heard the saying that “God can do anything.” Is that true? Or has it just become a cliche statement? In this message we look at a story in the Bible that tells us that Jesus, in fact, could not do something. What implications does that have for us?

Solo Message: Building What Lasts

Solo Messages are stand alone messages that are not associated with a specific message series.

In this message we take a look at the Israelites disobedience to God’s instructions to build his temple. They didn’t refuse, they intended to follow through, but just on their terms and in their timing. We often find ourselves tempted to drift towards the same sin. We place God second while we put ourselves first. Listen to “Building What Lasts” to learn how God wants us to prioritize our life.

Solo Messages are stand alone messages that are not associated with a specific message series.

In this message, Pastor Nick, addresses the temptation of busying ourselves with the work of ministry or burdening ourselves with the busyness of everyday life while missing out on simply being in Jesus’ presence for worship and to learn from his teachings.
