The Message: The Twenty-Fourth – Mark’s Gospel (1 April 2018)

By | Teaching, The Message

This is our Easter Sunday message in 2018. We live in a culture that says the Bible is an ancient text not really drawn up for today – It was useful once, but is no longer useful. However, Christianity and the message of the Bible stands on the resurrection of Jesus Christ. That changes everything. One of the first witnesses to the resurrection recounts his memories of Jesus, and in Mark Chapter 5 tells a story of a “dead-man” walking who finds life, hope and peace in Christ. There is hope for everyone. The Hill Church will never ever give up, looking for the living amongst the dead.

The Message: The Twenty-Third – Mark’s Gospel (25 March 2018)

By | Teaching, The Message

Jesus has been calling people to go with him to the other side. To the uncomfortable, costly, messy and risky place where the people who need him are. We need this willingness and experience to grow, to see Jesus for who he is and to sacrifice our ‘pigs’ for the sake of people made in the image of God – no matter how broken, beaten, battered or bruised. Text: Mark 4:35-5:20.

The Message: The Twenty-Second – Mark’s Gospel (4 March 2018)

By | Teaching, The Message

When we experience tough seasons we can often look for answers from God as to why He would allow it or even cause it. Sometimes it can feel the only reason for the season even happening is because we followed him. In those moments it is critical that we ask the right question, which is not why is this happening?, but who is this who is with us?

Text: Mark 4:35-41

The Message: The Twenty-First – Mark’s Gospel (11 February 2018)

By | Teaching, The Message

Mark chapter 4 contains four important stories that Jesus uses to teach us about the work of the Kingdom of God in the world and in our lives. This talk is the third talk focused on Mark chapter 4 and covers the final two stories. It centres on a truth that is at the heart of Christianity. If you see that truth, and know that truth it will set you free. (Mark 4:26-32)

Bones “Make a good deposit” (10 December 2017)

By | Bones, Teaching

The Bible and the message contained within could be described as a lion roaring. Who could defend it and who could deny its power. Its primary purpose is to reveal Christ so that to those who accept him he becomes more valuable and more personal. Jesus described our hearts as a treasury and the Word of God is the best kind of deposit we can make in the same. As we come to the end of 2017 it is a good question to ask – what is the bank balance of your heart? And how can we increase the value of the deposits in 2018?

The Message: The Seventeenth – Mark’s Gospel (5 November 2017)

By | Teaching, The Message

Mark 3:20-35. God does not line up with us, we are called to line up with Him. History is full of cultures, countries, cults, religions, churches and Christians bringing their plans, agenda & identity with the expectation that God will line up to them. The issue with that is it creates dim vision, low expectancy, small hope, weak faith and quiet worship. In this message we discover the importance of obedience and surrender which this leads to true freedom for anybody.
