The Midweek Message: A Statement of Faith Pt.1 God

As a church plant, we've been supported by the FIEC and anticipate adopting their statement of faith when we become independent.  We're therefore going through the 9 points of that statement during our Sunday evening services.  Here is part one, where we consider some of what the Bible teaches about God.  Although we look at a lot of passages in the Bible, I mainly focus on Psalm 90.

The Mid-Week Message: No Truth Without Tenderness, No Tenderness without Truth (Matthew 10)

In this message, we explore the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 10, in which Jesus sends out his disciples to proclaim the message of the Kingdom.  He warns them of the opposition they will face, but also encourages them with the reminder that God is faithful and resourceful.  He advises them that they are to "be as wise as serpents and as gentle as doves", ie. that they must have both truth and tenderness.
