How do we get the most out of reading Scripture? Can the Bible be trusted? What can the Bible teach us? These are all great questions. Christians talk a lot about the Bible, so how do we go about reading it? This week we are going to look at a Story with Jesus and Mary and look at how we can get the most out of reading the Bible.
Ever been so tunnel-visioned on something, so focused in on the detail that you didn't see the bigger picture? In this week's Livestream, Jesus meets a group of people who had done just that...and as a result, they missed the most important lesson of all.
Wherever Jesus went, it seems crowds would gather around him. The crowds could be small, or they could be large but the folks that made up the crowd were all divided in their opinion about this Godman. So how did Jesus deal with the crowd? What was his MO? And what can learn from that for our own digital church? Well, this week, Matt unpacks why we changed the name to CROWD church, what the purpose of the church is and what some of the core principles are.
Have you ever had to deal with difficult people? They look to build themselves up at your expense, maybe even ridicule you. They are ... well, just plain old difficult to deal with. Well, you are not alone. Jesus had the exact same problem. So how does He deal with them, and what can we learn from that? What can we learn about how to deal with criticism, how to deal with haters and how to deal with difficult people?
Overcoming adversity - part 3. When it comes to overcoming adversity, we often find ourselves praying and asking God for help. But does that make sense? Does God even care about my prayers? Does He even listen? And if He hears me - will he actually do anything? This week we take a look at what Jesus says about prayer, and how we can know what God's plan for our lives is.
Overcoming adversity - part 2. If positive thinking isn't the answer (what we talked about last week), then what is? What is Jesus' strategy for overcoming adversity and obstacles? This week we carry on looking at Mark 11, where Jesus tells about mountain-moving faith...but it's not what you'd expect!
We all have obstacles and adversity to deal with - heck, we are in the middle of a pandemic that is affecting us all. So how to do we overcome such things? Well, the standard answer is just to think positively, be optimistic, see the glass as half full..but does that really work? Or does Jesus have some other advice to give us?
In this service, we look at a conversation that happens between Peter and Jesus, where Jesus asks Peter, "Who do you say that I am?" This is such a powerful question, and Peter's answer, "You are the Christ" holds a lot of amazing truth
Even after hanging out with Jesus for three years, and seeing the church grow through the most extraordinary time - Peter still had issues with prejudice, so as we continue our study in Mark, we look at a passage where Jesus talks about our hearts and how it is the key to dealing with our prejudice.
Easter is the best time of the year for Christians. But Why? Why is the resurrection so important and is there any evidence at all to support that it has happened? OR have Christians been caught up in a fairy tale for the last 2000 years?
Welcome to our 2nd Livestream as a Liverpool Church Plant :-) In this weeks video, Abi updates us on all things YWAM and Matt shares the next part of Mark's Gospel - the story of Jesus Walking on Water. This takes place after Jesus feeds the 5,000 (see last week's video for that talk) and there are some key lessons for us here too.
This is our first ever Livestream as a church plant! In the wake of the virus and recent events, we are coming in digitally. In this week's message, we are carrying on our study of Mark's Gospel. Specifically, we are looking at Mark 6:30-44 - the story of Jesus feeding the 5,000 and the key principles He outlines that we can use to serve the world today.
