WATER BAPTISM

WATER BAPTISM

In Christianity we refer to two types of baptism, both of which apply to every Christian; Water Baptism and Baptism in the Holy Spirit. In this blog, we are going to look at how Water Baptism works within a Christian’s life. The word “baptism” comes from the ancient...

WHAT IS THE BIBLE?

WHAT IS THE BIBLE?

The Bible, The Scriptures, The Word.  These are common phrases we hear in Christian circles.  But what really is the Bible? The solid foundation of Christianity is Jesus Christ Himself. However, it is the Bible that enables us to stand on that foundation.  The Bible...

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE SAVED

Congratulations! You’re now a Christian! There is no greater decision than bringing your life under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. We call this being “in Christ”. Sometimes people refer to this as being “saved”, mainly because we have been saved from God’s judgement...

A FEW BIG IDEAS

A FEW BIG IDEAS

 The birth of 2017 came with a nudge from the Spirit that this was a God-ordained Big Year.  We had no idea what that was going to look like but we leaned in, full of anticipation, ready for God to do something big.  As the year rounds up, I can honestly say that it...
