Pastor Andrew Owen
Dear eNews friends and church members and ‘Count Me In’ partners,
The Power of ONE
- ONE person dedicated to a great cause can make a big difference
- ONE church and people moving their faith together can bring down walls like Jericho.
- ONE is the biggest and most passionate desire of Jesus Himself, in that it was the last thing He taught the disciples before He was arrested, tried by Pilate and crucified on the cross. It was one of the last known prayers that He prayed: “that they might be one Father, even as we are one.”
We are familiar with atonement, the dynamic doctrine that teaches that Jesus was the Lamb of God taking away the sins of the world – including mine. My old pastor would tell me that atonement results in at-one-ment. We have been made at one with God, all hostilities are over, judgement has passed and I’m free and blessed.
Jesus wants us to not only know that, but live it, by practical, down to earth, walking-it-out-together. We read:You can develop a healthy robust community that lives right with God and enjoy its results only if you do the hard work of getting along with each other, treating each other with dignity and honour
James 3:18 MSG
We hold dear as one of our core values:
WE ARE SPIRITUAL CONTRIBUTORS – WE ALL GET TO PLAY OUR PART

There are 2 things we can do this weekend to play our part.
