In this sermon, our pastor, Ian Forest-Jones, reminded us Jesus declared those to be commended are poor in spirit and those who mourn. On the face of it, this seems quite at odds with the values of the world, which regards the joyful and prosperous as blessed. Let us be certain what mourning he is referring to specifically, so that we may understand how a sad face is good for the heart. The Bible was read by Ian Hudson. The sermon concluded with the singing of "Be Still My Soul" and a prayer. These have been included in this recording because they are especially relevant to these reflections on the Word of God.
In this sermon, our pastor, Ian Forest-Jones, encouraged us all to remember that to be poor in spirit is the opposite of that haughty, self-assertive, and self-sufficient disposition the world so much admires and praises; it is to realise we have nothing, are nothing, and can do nothing, and have need of all things. Thus, the friends of Jesus avoid arrogance and pursue a sense of one’s own need, relying on the Lord our God for that which is truly important. The Bible was read by Brad Gordon.
We believe that salvation is by God’s grace alone through faith and that people cannot save themselves by works of righteousness but that works of righteousness are products of the Holy Spirit who indwells believers by faith.
We believe the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ provide the only redemption from sin and that Christ died for all people; reconciliation and new life connected to God are possible only through his death and resurrection.
