Many non-Christians, and even some Christians, are understandably suspicious or even cynical about giving money to the church. However, those who have boldly acted on the Bible’s teaching in this regard have found that they received much joy and benefit, worth far more than what they parted with. Indeed, God does not need to receive; it is we who need to give. As we launch once again our annual Give To The King collection, Pastor brings us back to the reasons why we ought to give, and to give more generously than we have ever done.
It is an undisputed fact that the early church took off against incredible odds to win over the Roman Empire.

Join us on a journey to discover how God can help us deal with our pasts and release us into the abundant life He has promised us.
It is not enough to know that God exists. To experience everything Jesus promises to do for us, we need to have a vital connection with him. In his final ‘I AM’ statement, Jesus gives us an invitation: would you choose to remain in me?
