Come Down Lord: We Wait for You!

Come Down Lord: We Wait for You!


Now many of us could confidently say we've been waiting for God. But have we been waiting for God the right way? What does it mean when you say you are waiting upon God? Does it mean you are in church 24/7 singing and praying and crying and complaining why God is not coming faster?

A Good Man

A Good Man


What is your aspiration? Are you aspiring to be great? Is your aspiration is to be a great business person in this community? Are you aspiring to be a great surgeon someday; or to be a great preacher, or a great mother and wife or a great teacher?

Come Down Lord: We Miss You!



Is it possible that a church can intellectually understand the foundations of faith, theologically believe the doctrines of Scripture, daily go through the emotion of Christian living: and yet miss the power of God at work in the lives of its members? Today's church is full of people who are not worshipping God for who he is, but for what he promises to give them. Today's church is a church that is longing, hungry and empty; and yet looking in the wrong places to fulfil its needs. 

Come down Lord, we miss you. We can't imagine going through this year without you. We want to become those people that once enjoyed your fellowship, that once experienced your power, that once basked in the sunshine of your love. This is the commitment that this message is asking of you, that this year is going to be a year of longing and waiting, hungering for more of God, rethinking and refocusing our relationship with God. That this year is going to be a year where the Church will cry for God's smile; cry for God's helping hand; and cry for God's caring heart.

Fidelity to the Truths vs Maintaining Christian Unity in the Church

Fidelity to the Truths vs Maintaining Christian Unity in the Church


On one hand, we as the people of God have an absolute obligation to maintain our loyalty to the faith as it has been once for all delivered to the saints.  But on the other hand, we are taught in the word of God to show charity, and a spirit of love and grace and toleration and acceptance toward those with whom we disagree: even with whom we disagree about matters taught in Holy Scripture.
