One major contributing factor to a successful marriage is having a good match. The freedom to choose our life partner confronts us with 3 essential questions. How can you become the right person? How can you determine who is the right person? How do you face the possibility that you may never find the right person?
The modern view of religion is that it is fine to have your personal religious beliefs so long as you keep them to yourself, and never suggest that religion has something to say about how society ought to be run. This series addresses the inherent contradictions and unworkability of such a view, and explains why Christians should speak out confidently about their faith.
2019 is the year of our 20th anniversary as a church and this year’s countdown retreat marks the start of a series of exciting initiatives and events in celebration of God’s faithfulness over the past 20 years! It’s a time for us to come together as one big Brighton family to be in the presence of God. We’re gonna take this time to pray and catch a fresh vision for the church, and usher in the year of our 20th anniversary together!
The bible tells us that God created the institution of marriage because he had said, “it is not good for man to be alone.” How then can people who are single, whether voluntarily or otherwise, ever find true fulfilment or have some of their deepest needs met? In this message, Pastor Tiak provides a radical yet practical answer to that question from the New Testament that addresses both our heads and our hearts.
In the first message, we emphasised the importance of being the right person rather than looking for the right person. That, however, does not mean that we should be naïve or undiscerning in our selection of a potential life partner. That’s why in this message, Pastor Tiak tells us about some non-negotiable qualities that are indispensable for successful relationships.
Our culture promotes the myth that true love and successful relationships is all about chemistry. The problem with chemistry is that it produces not just reactions but also explosions. As a result, many of us have been hurt or become disillusioned by our own, or our parents’, relational explosions. The bible tells us that there is a better way to do love. That’s why in this message, Pastor Tiak explains what we need to do differently to experience lasting and great relationships.
Jesus did not come to earth just to get sinners into heaven, but to bring the kingdom of God down to earth. What does this mean and how is it supposed to happen? How does his kingdom intersect with the kingdoms and governments of this world? In this message Pastor Tiak addresses these thought-provoking questions and also explains the part that he has called his followers to play in this world-changing process.
Another new year has dawned, and no doubt all of us have engaged in the same mind game, wishing and persuading ourselves that on the stroke of midnight of 31 December, things would somehow be better going forward.
