new sermons page and podcast feed

December 24, 2009

We recently updated Our Sermons page with a new look plug-in for handling our sermon files. We are still working out a few tweaks both as to appearance and as to file handling, but we think this new setup will be an improvement. It will definitely be easier to use when uploading our sermons. The system will virtually pick out sermon title, speaker, and other metadata items automatically. We’ll just have to make a few clicks to identify a few other items not found in the metadata and we’ll be done.

I hope you find the new setup helpful. If you subscribe to our podcast, you will want to subscribe to our new feed.

Another feature of the sermon page is you will now have the ability to filter by date, speaker, series, Bible book, or any combination you like.

Let us know if you have any difficulty with any part of the new page.

Phil 1.1-2.18

Duncan Johnson

Our pastor’s son gave us a survey of the doctrinal section of Philippians, showing us Paul’s single driving motivation, the mindset he urges for successful Christian service (humility) and the call of God to work out this kind of salvation in our lives for the Lord.

December 20, 2009

The Word became Flesh [Christmas]

December 20, 2009

Jn 1.14

The pinnacle of our Christmas series is John’s preface to his Gospel, the passage that fills out the words of Heb 1.2, ‘God … hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son…’ We consider what it means for the Son to be the Word of God and how it is that in Him alone can we truly come to know God at all – he is the full revelation of God.

O Lord, the God of my salvation [Psalms]

December 16, 2009

Ps 88

This psalm is one of the blackest in the psalter, yet the psalmist retains enough faith in God to at least pray. No matter how dark your despair, you must cling to the fact of a good God who hears your prayers.

The Word’s Worth [Christmas]

December 13, 2009

Ps 19.9-11

Our message this afternoon looks at the expressions of value in this great Psalm of God’s revelation of himself to man. The Word is valued for what it does and what it is, making it precious to the servant of God, a sure guide from the dangers of evil and towards the reward of the saints.

The Word in English (2) [Christmas]

December 13, 2009

the life of William Tyndale

We continue our biographical sketch of Tyndale with a brief review of last week, a few readings from his New Testament to compare it with our current versions and some discussion of the impact of both Tyndale’s Testament and his book on Christian ethics, Obedience of a Christian Man. Tyndale’s skill and commitment to God’s Word provide a great example and a great blessing to the modern church.

December 13, 2009

Ps 19.7-8

Our Christmas series continues with a look at the marvelous effects of the Word as it works in the inner man of sinners – converting the soul, making wise the simple, rejoicing the heart and enlightening the eyes.

Glorious Things of Thee are Spoken [Psalms]

December 9, 2009

Ps 87

Psalm 87 is a terse poem packed with meaning. The psalmist exults in God’s declaration to the nations – citizenship for the nations in Zion, the beloved city of God.
