Receiving the Spirit

Receiving the Spirit

This past Sunday I spoke about the importance of us being a Spirit empowered people and gave opportunity for people to receive the Spirit. Had we have had more time I would have given more attention to demonstrating from scripture all the New Testament occurrences of receiving the Spirit. I thought it might be useful…

Men, Camo… and the Holy Spirit

I’m a “men’s weekend” junkie. There’s something about going away together as men that I have found hugely helpful in my (long, sometimes painful) maturing process as a Christian man, my Father’s son.  So when Rhys mentioned that he would be speaking at a men’s conference in Oregon this past weekend, and that anybody who…

Always be ready to give an answer…

When I logged on to Facebook today I found this post from a staunchly atheist friend of mine: “I had a really good/interesting talk with some theists (Christians) today. Anyone who says ‘religious people are stupid’ needs to talk with some theists, like this guy I was talking with most of the time. He helped…

Carol Service – Sunday 15 December, 5.30pm

We’d love to invite you to join us as we celebrate Jesus’ birth together on Sunday 15 December at our carol service in downtown Vancouver. It’ll be a more ‘traditional’ service with carols, a choir, readings and more. Christmas is often associated with gifts, but it is the gift of eternal life given through the…

Worshipping together, hearing God speak to us, the familiarity of friends, the opportunity to pray for and minister to one another. It really is the best day of the week! The writer to the Hebrews instructs…
