This Sunday we began our 5 Solas of Reformation series. This month we celebrate 500 years of the Protestant Reformation. The Reformation had this emphasis in mind: Our relationship with God is based foundationally from Scripture, revealing the redemption paid for our sins from Christ, given to us by God's grace which we receive through faith, all to the glory of God." This week we look at how Scripture alone should be the governing authority in the matters of faith, and we look at Nehemiah 8 at what it looks like for God’s people to a make his word a priority. Have a great week.
Today we had pastor Sihle Xulu preach God’s word from Psalm 137. He is the planter of Grace Chapel, Durban South Africa. Psalms of Lament like Psalm 137 always equips us on how to live life as sojourners. To be honest about our sufferings and trials, to trust the sustaining power of the gospel, to genuinely display love to those around us.
We are still in Jonah Chapter 1 and this week we looked at how God’s grace came in form of a storm to those not seeking him: the sailors. This is very important because there are many people who find themselves caught up in storms that are not a result of their sin but yet God works to redeem them through the storms. Have a blessed week.
This week we follow how God pursues Jonah while he is opposing Him in every way. God's grace came to Jonah through a storm and that is one of the ways God brings grace to us. We hope this message is a blessing to you.
We're in our Jonah series and this week we are looking at Jonah and his response to God. As you listen to this message it is clear that when God sends us on mission, he extends grace to us and through us. Hope you have a Great week.
We began our series on the book of Jonah Today. Jonah is a well-known story that when scrutinized becomes a life-giving message of grace to all those who hear it. Pastor Raphael does an over view of the book in this sermon. We pray this blesses you. Have a great week
This is the last sermon on the series: Prayers. We spent time praying as a church for the future of City Church. In this message pastor Raphael shows us in 2 Cor 5:17-21 God saves us and sends us as missionaries. Have a blessed week
God exists in community, The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and that has implications on who we are as people, much more as believers. We were made to exist in community and although Sin shatters community the gospel recreates it. Learn more as Elder Earl Neff explores Genesis 1:26 and 1 Peter 2:9-10
We are spending the next August clarifying the vision & values of City Church. Each week we’ll finish by inviting you to begin praying a specific prayer for our church family.This week we are examining how we bring glory to God by making disciples: through the gospel. Our prayer is this "Father, form us into a gospel-centered people, a people defined not by what we do, but by what you have done for us in Jesus, a people who really believe the Gospel contains your great power to save, to both make and mature disciples." Have a great week
We are spending the next 4 weeks clarifying the vision & values of City Church. Each week we’ll finish by inviting you to begin praying a specific prayer for our church family.This week we are examining what God has called the church to do…or to be about. We hope you have a blessed week
