Why Live a Christian Life?

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

The reason Christ came to the earth was to summarise the value of a God given life. He did this by revealing the failings of Godless living; he also promoted and demonstrated the most successful way to serve God. He sacrificed his life so that we could have another chance... he also cancelled the power that death and sin have over us. He revealed the new life that would be possible, through the anointing of the Holy Spirit. He alone made Christian life a possibility, for those who look for it and live in it.

Jesus, Advocate For Sinners

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

The Christian life is a life full of hope and opportunity. Whenever we have needs or find ourselves out of our depth, Jesus Christ acts on our behalf for us... he takes over when the going gets too tough. This role that Jesus takes on has a special name, the term used is 'advocate'... one who comforts and defends. The role of advocate is two edged... we are defended against our shortcomings and failings and are personally supported at the same time.

If You Really Knew the Gift of God

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

Most people would be stunned in disbelief if they comprehended what God was freely offering them. In a world that has been dumbed down by spiritual corruption and extraverted pleasure seeking; it is left to God's faithful workers to spread the fabulous news of the true gospel. This is certainly not a recent problem for God.

The Truly Personal Benefits of the Spirit

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

When you have the Holy Spirit you also have some very powerful tools to help you through every aspect of life... in every period of time... no matter what. The only thing that will get in the way is unbelief. This presentation will highlight the Lord's ability to manage every one of these issues... in a very personal way.

The Mystery of Jesus Christ Part Four

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

We have clearly seen that faulty church doctrine, ignorance, rebellion and a host of religious failings, have left most people totally ignorant of what Jesus Christ represented and why he came and died as a perfect sacrifice for the human race. God resolved all of these human failings by filling people with the Holy Spirit with signs following, so they need not get caught out through deceit or ignorance. This summary reveals many of the mysteries that have confused generations of worshippers.

The Mystery of Jesus Christ Part Three

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

There is one very sad reason for the ignorance that surrounds Jesus Christ. Many religious and political leaders have done their best over the last 2000 years to limit or deny the true power that Christ made available to the human race. Even today, there are continuous attacks on Christian values with many religious leaders compromised towards humanist and social engineering. The following scriptures clearly reveal, how insidious some people with power over others, tend to be. Jesus was sent to free the world from sin and to encourage people to be led of the Spirit... not men.

The Mystery of Jesus Christ Part Two

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

We have already seen (part 1), the great confusion that surrounded the life and purpose of Jesus Christ… even by his closest friends and disciples. Ignorance of God's truths often lead people to reject the word of the Lord, just as Adam and Eve rejected good advice in the beginning. The gospel is a mystery to many, because they fail to grasp all the implications of Christ's sacrifice and the essential need to be anointed by the ensuing Holy Spirit. The following notes reveal the very real ignorance towards Christ, despite many positive proofs and scriptural facts offered by God.

The Mystery of Jesus Christ Part One

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

This is the first of four presentations that reveal the real purpose why Jesus Christ exists and the God given benefits that the human race can expect to receive from him. This overview reveals the high levels of ignorance relating to Jesus Christ and the contents of his gospel. We will see that nothing has changed... not even today.

The Last Great Stampede

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

The Klondike gold rush of 1897-1900 was the last great gold rush of recent history. Skagway and Dyea (Di-ee-ya), Alaska, located 600 miles south of the gold fields, were the closest salt water ports to the Klondike. More than 100,000 stampeders set out for the Klondike (stampeders... the name given to those who rushed anywhere a fortune was rumored to be made). However, no more than 40,000 actually reached Dawson City, the center of most of the action. In the end, only some 4,000 or so prospectors actually found gold in the gold fields with a few hundred becoming rich. Yet, out of these, only a mere handful managed to hang on to their wealth. This short moment in history, has much in common with the end of this age, as 'would be Christians' rush to and fro to find the spiritual riches of a true relationship with God.

Useable Understanding

By Pastor Brad Smith [Brisbane]

Many people have a great knowledge of bible stories, history, genealogy, scriptural personalities, geography, prophecy and historic culture, but all that is worthless if it doesn’t build a working relationship with God. Many know all about God, but have never experienced God working with them as he did with Paul, Peter and other men and women of the New Testament. Faith is without effect if it fails to bring about God given results. That is the reason our church maintains our operational model as it leads from one step to the next... just as happened on the day of Pentecost and onwards. Unless the understanding we have gets results from God in a continual refining manner... then it is of no benefit to the believer.
