It is important to understand that there is a power at work when we pray. Do you know that prayer has the power to demolish strongholds and arguments against the knowledge of God [2 Corinthians 10]?
Jesus never had an unanswered prayer and He is our greatest example of the power of prayer. Because of Him we can pray 'Abba Father’ and have direct access to the Holy of Holies. We can come boldly to God with our prayers and we are able to intercede for our friends and family who do not yet know the truth of Jesus.
Join us this Sunday as we explore the power of prayer.

Relationships are a big deal. Relationships are how we live. Relationships that work with our spouse, in our family, with somebody we’re dating, with friends and acquaintances … relationships, are just an important part of life.
Sometimes though relationships get broken. Sometimes we find ourselves in “toxic” relationships and “abusive” relationships. That abuse can be physical, verbal, sexual, emotional or some combination of those dysfunctions. And we can carry the pain of abuse through our entire life. Job said - “The churning inside me never stops; each day confronts me with more suffering.” Job 30:27
Scripture isn’t silent on the matter of abusive behaviour in relationships and has some principals to -guide and help us. We needn’t suffer in silence. Jesus said - “The truth will set you free.”

"The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; He delivers them from their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from the all." Psalm 34: 17-19 NIV
We are living in the midst of unprecedented economic challenges and shattered dreams. Lost homes, broken marriages, hunger, unemployment, and so much more is raging all over the world. But even in the midst of these shattered dreams, there is hope!

In his letter to the Ephesians (6:10-18), Paul tells us to put on the whole armour of God. This armour that Christians are called to put on comprises of the Belt of Truth, the Breastplate of Righteousness, the Gospel of Peace, the Shield of Faith, the Helmet of Salvation, and the Sword of the Spirit.
This powerful metaphor not only is a reminder for Christians about the reality of spiritual warfare, but it also describes the protection God has made available to us through Jesus.
We are called to put on the armour of God and fight against the powers of darkness in the spirit realm. Angels and demons are real, and the devil is full of deceptions and lies (John 10:10). God has given us everything we need to be victorious. Join us this Sunday as we learn about spiritual warfare.

Continuing the theme “From Maintenance to Mission” the message this week is based on Luke 4:14-28.
Each one of us has a call to mission just as Jesus here in this Scripture had a call to mission.
It is not always easy. There will always be opposition, just as it was here for Jesus in his home town. But we too, despite that opposition & rejection, must learn to “walk through the crowd & be on our way” preaching the good news, seeing prisoners set free, giving sight to the blind, releasing the oppressed & proclaiming this year & every year the year of God’s favour.
