The Father of Mercies 2 Corinthians 1.1
2 Feb 2020

23 Feb 2020

An insight into Paul's deep sense of the priesthood of all believers. Shared intercession comes first (he needs them), then shared sincerity, then a shared anointing (not just the preacher), finally shared proving of the Lord (the local church needs no external oversight).

Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Learning from contrasts, including that between the law written on stone, and conversion written in the heart; the ministry of the the letter and that of the Spirit; the old and the new covenants; the administration of death and of the Spirit, with the unique glory of the latter.

Liberty and Transformation 2 Corinthians 3.18
22 Mar 2020

Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters

The mighty, glorious paradox of the witnessing Christian life is here seen - in weakness, Christ makes us strong; in hindrances and hardships, He provides the escape; when at the end of our resources, He supplies - a lifelong proving of His power and faithfulness to us.
