31 December 2017 – Galatians 5
John Reid – Perfect freedom is in breaking the shackles of sin. God offers us freedom from sin through the death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus. By accepting this gracious gift God’s Spirit works in you. The Holy Spirit transforms you and produces fruits of love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control.
Sunday 24 December 2017 10am. In this sermon on Christmas eve, John Reid talks about the secret of Christmas and discusses these important questions: 1. Can the biographies of Jesus be trusted? 2. Does archaeology confirm or contradict Jesus’ biographies? 3. Was Jesus really who he claimed to be? 4. Does Jesus alone match the identity of the promised rescuer? 5. Why should Christmas matter?
10 December 2017 – Rob Chambers leads us through Galatians 4 & 5 to consider whether Christians are still slaves or truly free? Paul’s letter to the Galatians compares two groups of people – those who are slaves to the law and trying to earn their salvation by keeping the law and those who were born again in Christ and accept the free gift of Grace from God through faith alone. Paul says in Chapter 5 Verse 6 “The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.”

Faith of Works of the Law
The gift of grace for resentment
05 Nov 2017 – John Reid – Galatians – The Gospel is more important than the messenger
This is an eternal Life and eternal death issue
The truth is faith alone, not faith & works
Don’t be fooled, miracles don’t prove that the messenger is speaking the Truth
God saves people through those who communicate the Gospel, the Truth
