A Covenant Community for the City: Part 2

by David Robinson

September 11, 2016 | Acts 2:40-47; Titus 2:11-14

God has blessed us abundantly and we are in turn to bless one another and to bless the city. We are to live in such a way that people observe the hope within us and ask us about it.

 

A Covenant Community for the City: Part 1

by David Robinson

September 4, 2016 | Acts 2:40-47

A healthy church is one which follows the biblical model and not merely one which exhibits sound institutional management. The early Church in Acts 2 gives us four important congregational activities to reflect upon and challenge us.

 

Responding to the Prophetic Word of Jesus

by Joe Boot

December 13, 2015 | Acts 3:17-26; Isaiah 53

Jesus continues to offend the world because this baby is a prophet who calls people to repentance and obedience.

 

Searching for Truth: The Daily Devotion of the Christian Life

by David Robinson

May 11, 2014 | Acts 2:42; Psalm 26

The Christian faith informs everything that we do and requires us to pursue our duties with excellence. Unified in prayer and hearing the Word obediently, Christians speak boldly and the Lord adds to our numbers those who are being saved.

 

The Evangelistic Calling of the Church

by Joe Boot

November 4, 2012 | Acts 8:26-35

The announcement we make in evangelism is that the salvation and reign of Christ has broken into history.

 

The Apostolic Mission of the Church

by Joe Boot

October 14, 2012 | Acts 20:17-38

The apostolic calling for the church today is that we are being sent by God into the world to accomplish His purposes. God has privileged His people to do His work. If we are an apostolic church, we're to have the face of an angel, ministering and serving one another. The gospel brings the light of forgiveness of sins, and it also changes hearts and so it changes social orders. The gospel has made conquest of individuals and nations; it has given life to dead churches; it has revolutionized continents. It liberates captives.

 

Rome at Last and The Victory of the Gospel

by Joe Boot

June 10, 2012 | Acts 28

Paul spoke to the Jewish leaders of the Hope of Israel: the Kingdom of God manifested in the resurrection of Christ. As with all Paul's preaching to the Jews, some believed the message of faith in Jesus and others did not (Acts 28:24). God's Word cannot be put under arrest. Likewise the gospel in our time will ultimately succeed. Acts ends with the gospel witness spreading from Rome, and today the power of the gospel is operative in Toronto.

 

Paul Before Felix

by Joe Boot

June 3, 2012 | Acts 24

The gospel ministry is the most exciting adventure you could devote your life to.

 

Paul’s Defence in Jerusalem

by David Robinson

May 27, 2012 | Acts 22:1-23:11

We must not be hasty or presumptuous when listening for God's call for our lives.

 

Paul and Power Encounter

by Michael Boot

May 20, 2012 | Acts 19:11-20

The church must recognize spiritual battle if we are to see evangelism advance in our day. Paul was anointed by God, such that he was recognized by both heaven and by hell. We need a revival in Toronto based on the Word of God.

 

Paul in Athens

by Joe Boot

May 13, 2012 | Acts 17:16-34

Confronted with intellectual pluralism, idolatry, and biblical illiteracy, Paul was neither naive nor obscurantist. He was equipped in worldly learning, and he was able to proclaim God's Word powerfully.

 

The Council of Jerusalem: Preserving the Gospel

by Scott Masson

May 6, 2012 | Acts 15:1-35

In Acts 15, we see a conflict of authority and a conflict of doctrine. We live in a lawless age in which Christians reject authority. Acting in Jesus' name without the blessing of the church is dangerous.
