“To Whom Shall We Go?”

A message tracking the enthusiastic pursuit of Christ by many who wanted a materialistic, earthly return to prosperity, while He proclaimed His purpose - spiritual and eternal life to all who depend on Him as divine Saviour, and His redeeming work on Calvary.

The Believer’s Mentality

Peter here brings out the new mentality of believers through conversion, and how they have done with sin and the world, to conduct their precious remaining years to God's glory. Here is the distinction between today's worldly evangelicalism and a truly godly lifestyle.

Paradise Lost and Found

The Biblical account of the Garden of Eden and the fall of mankind is the most profound and searching record of the beginning of sin in all literature. Dismissed in ignorance, it traces the loss and the regaining of vital contact with God.

Worship or Entertainment?
Dr Peter Masters

Where will your church be five or ten years from now? With the adoption of contemporary worship, many have changed beyond recognition. This is one of the most important issues confronting Bible churches today, and here is why.

How We Treat the Holy Spirit Within
Dr Peter Masters

The personal indwelling of the Holy Spirit in the believer is such an amazing privilege that the mind never wholly grasps it. A daily succession of joys, temptations and trials produces various reactions in us, often without stirring our awareness that God is in residence, and will be pleased or grieved by what we think, say or do.

The Merger of Calvinism with Worldliness
Dr Peter Masters

A new form of Calvinism took the shape of a movement around 2005, but it differed in its acceptance of ‘the world’. 'New Calvinism' is not a resurgence of the old but an entirely novel formula which strips the doctrine of holy conduct, and unites it with the world. But the Scriptures say that 'the friendship of the world is enmity with God.'

Against Hastening to Remove from our Post of Duty
C H Spurgeon

Do we shy away from Christian service? As the Lord's workers we should desire to glorify Him. Christian service is not about selecting the comfortable positions and the hopeful fields; it is best to make no selection, but to yield our own will to the will of God altogether.

Books

Not Like Any Other Book

Dr Peter Masters


A new approach to interpretation has gripped many evangelical seminaries and Bible colleges, an approach based on the ideas of unbelieving critics, stripping the Bible of God's message and leaving pastors impoverished in their preaching.



Missionary Triumph over Slavery

Dr Peter Masters


We are told today that Christian missionaries of the past were tools of colonial oppression. The story of William Knibb shows how wildly wrong this is. Persecuted by British rulers in Jamaica because he opposed settlers’ abuses, he was pivotal in swinging public opinion behind legislation to end slavery.



Sacrifice

Howard Guinness


How much we need the challenging call of Howard Guinness’ Sacrifice! Only this level of commitment will take us through life’s journey used by God, and rejoicing in his power and love. Dr Guinness himself lived the message of this book, and a multitude of readers have caught it from him. May we do so also, to God's glory.



The Goal of Brotherly Love

Dr Peter Masters


Brotherly love is something far higher and deeper than church rambles and other organised friendship activities, useful as these may be. The great goal is 'philadelphia' love, a New Testament term indicating 'a depth and tenacity of love equal to the love of a blood tie.' Why is such a strong term used?
