The Real Power of Truth1 Timothy 1.1-2
— Dr Peter Masters | 11:00am | Sunday 15 July 2012

How God Turns Hearts1 Timothy 1.15

The Only Mediator1 Timothy 2.5
Gospel Sermon— Dr Peter Masters | 6:30pm | Sunday 26 May 2019
The Bible asserts there is one mediator between God and man. Why is a mediator necessary? Why is there only one? Why cannot people reconcile themselves with God? Why must God do this Himself? Do other religions offer a mediator? What does a mediator achieve for us?
Alternatives to God1 Timothy 2.5
— Dr Peter Masters | 6:30pm | Sunday 4 November 2012
A world without God does not recognise God-given standards. It has no 'Book of God' explaining His purpose. It denies life after death. It offers no motives, or effective help to overcome personal wrongdoing, and to live a better life. Here, by contrast, is God's life-plan for us.

Constant Communion1 Timothy 4.8
— Dr Peter Masters | 11:00am | Sunday 2 September 2012
The word 'godliness', as used by both Paul and Peter, does not mean holiness but devotion or reverence. Knowing this brings all the exhortations to godliness to life. Here we see what constant devotion is, how it is to be exercised and maintained, and the blessings it brings.

The Duty of Contentment1 Timothy 6.6
— Dr Peter Masters | 7:30pm | Wednesday 25 September 2013
Godliness (reverence) is firmly coupled with contentment (satisfaction), and together they are the source of true riches.

An Agenda for Blessing1 Timothy 6.11
Teaching Sermon— Dr Peter Masters | 11:00am | Sunday 16 September 2012

The Battle for Eternity1 Timothy 6.12
— Dr Peter Masters | 11:00am | Sunday 9 September 2012
