The Father of Mercies 2 Corinthians 1.1
2 Feb 2020

Beginning with God as a compassionate Father over His children, Paul moves to sufferings incurred for the sake of Christ and the Gospel, especially his own experience of 'so great a death', and its spiritual purpose - that of delivering him from self-trust.

Gospel sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Healing the bent-over woman in the synagogue, the Lord declares her 'loosed' rather than healed, showing the miracle to be a picture of our release (at conversion) from all the moral and spiritual limitations that bind us away from God. Here is true conversion.

The Lord With Us 2 Thessalonians 3.16
26 Jan 2020
Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Some believers imagine that Christ speaks to them and even touches them, while others overreact from extreme pietism and think little of Christ's constant presence with them. Here is the Lord's nearness throughout the Bible, and the power of 'seeing Him' with the eye of faith.

Gospel sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Gospel sermon by Dr Peter Masters

In the Lord's parable of the ten pounds, a nobleman's citizens cried, 'we will not have this man to reign over us!' Here is why, how it parallels our rejection of God (before conversion), and what makes His reign 'over us' so magnificent.

Bible Study by Dr Peter Masters

Over 2700 years ago the prophet's vision describes the full scale of human nature and man's fallen behaviour in six remarkably concise yet profound categories. There is nothing so penetrating even in the New Testament as the astonishing scenario of the vineyard parable and the six woes. 

12 Jan 2020
Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Authentic believers, says the apostle, pray for the Gospel in a certain way, taste opposition (and deliverance), have lively consciences to obey the Lord, and grow in new sense of His love, looking for His return. Are we consciously experiencing the features of a sincere walk?

Gospel sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Judgement Day is almost unmentionable in today's society, yet it awaits us all at the end of time. Here is the motive of God's justice, how He has made His standards known, and how Christ secures release from judgement for all who trust in Him.

Bible Study by Dr Peter Masters

Isaiah predicts Judah's future troubles through invasion and captivity of all the leading men, showing the reasons for judgement, especially the vaunting of man. Here is the application to the church today, and here also is a magnificent detailed prophecy of the New Testament age.

Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Paul first speaks of indebtedness (here is how election should influence us); then of our experience of the call of God; then of our duty to hold the faith; then of the forms God's blessing takes, and finally of the kind of strength God imparts.

The Fall of Man Romans 5.12
5 Jan 2020
Gospel sermon by Dr Peter Masters

The Scriptures exclusively explain the human condition, the presence of sin and suffering, and God's way of salvation. Here is the doctrine of the Fall - the understanding of which is the door to reality and seeking for God and conversion to Him.
