Success in life often depends on our ability to cultivate and hold in tension seemingly contradictory qualities. In this series, we examine why such contrasting qualities are necessary, and more importantly, how we can possibly develop them, by looking at the only perfectly balanced and most successful person who ever lived.
Many of us have been crushed or crippled by the bad things that happened to us. While we often cannot prevent them or make them any less unpleasant, what we can do is to learn how to respond in such a way as to benefit from, and get the most, out of them.
All of us long for peace. But we almost always assume that peace is no more than merely freedom from disruptive and unpleasant occurrences. True peace, however, is a radical tranquility that prevails whatever happens. The good news is that it is available to you.
Would you like your new year resolutions to work for a change, instead of being relegated, yet again, to the ever-growing trash heap of good but unfulfilled intentions? Through this series, find out how you can not only start the year well, but finish strongly as well.
This December season we have the privilege of hearing from guest speakers, Pastor Andrew Yeo, Pastor Lim Lip Yong, Rev. Dr. William Wan as well as our very own Pastor Alywin and Pastor Tiak. Join us and listen in for an exciting word from all our speakers.

If you are looking for a sign from God, Jesus says that no sign will be given except the sign of Jonah. It is easy to dismiss Jonah as a Sunday School story that we all outgrow, like our belief in Santa Claus. However, this ancient story holds surprises and powerful lessons for you, regardless of whether you are a Christian, a non-Christian, or unsure of what you are.
Many people today dismiss the claims of Christianity outright because they believe the objections against it are self-evident and obviously unanswerable. The truth is that these objections are culturally conditioned rather than rigorously substantiated. Why not examine the objections objectively? What do you have to lose?
For most of us, our work defines us. It gives us a sense of worth and identity. It takes up most of our waking hours. It pays the bills and allows us to enjoy the good things in life. Yet if we are honest, it does not fully satisfy. Why do we need to work? What’s wrong with work? How can work be meaningful?
