In an age where almost anything goes, how can we equip and empower Christians to believe and live the Christian faith, and how can we equip and empower the church to evangelise? 

In the book of Ecclesiastes, King Solomon describes our ignorance of the works of God and of the future. In particular, how we do not know which seeds will germinate and produce fruit. The Bible has a great deal to say about sowing and reaping, and we know ...

For many Christians returning from mission trips, it can feel hard to settle back into normal life. We’re bursting with stories of redemption and renewal. We’ve witnessed the faith of the persecuted and the joy of the poor. We’re resolved to live generously after encountering sprawling slums and rundown orphan homes. Yet, no matter what we’ve experienced, people at home appear uninterested and just don't seem to get it. After a...

Most Christians agree that when Jesus told his followers to go and make disciples of all nations, he gave the church its mission until the end of the age. It is much harder, however, to gain consensus on how the church is to fulfil that mission today.  

The Great Commission is one of the most significant passages in the Bible – and yet somewhere along the way Christians seem to have lost confidence that the Bible actually gives the ...

When most of us think of the “Great Commission,” we start with the word “go.” The gist of Christ’s command is that we are to go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, baptising and teaching, right? But Matthew’s version of the Commissioning scene doesn’t start with “go.”

The commission itself is sandwiched between two statements related to Jesus Christ: the first concerns His authority, and the second concerns His emp...

The Christian walk is a relationship with God, so what does it mean when we don’t feel our faith? Does it mean God is distant or that perhaps He doesn’t care? Does it mean Christianity is false? 

The emotional connection in the Christian walk is an important one. So, what does it mean when the emotions are not there? There are times when every Christian feels like God has disappeared, when our faith feels distant and unsatisfying. W...

One of the most frustrating and discouraging aspects of the Christian life is struggling with sin. While it’s true that we have been filled with the Holy Spirit and sin’s ultimate control over us has been broken, we still often find ourselves doing things we hate, saying things that we know are wrong, and feeling attracted to things that we know are evil. At times, the battle feels overwhelming.  

Sin is a reality with which we all ...

One of the most alarming trends in today’s society is the death of the concept of sin. As the morals in our culture deteriorate how can Christians respond? 

Many people understand the feeling of guilt but until they understand sin, they will not be ready for a saviour. Sin is the greatest problem facing the world, but how can we define what sin is to a postmodern generation? 

Let's join Tony as he defines sin and examines the dif...

The second coming is one of the most momentous events that will ever happen, where Jesus Christ will come again to the earth personally, visibly, and bodily – to judge the living and the dead, and to complete His redemptive mission. For Christians this is a blessed hope for which we should constantly watch and pray. But how should this critical event shape our life and hope now? 

It is overwhelming to see the number of times through...

How do people tend to explore faith, and what lessons can we learn from their spiritual journeys that might help us as we work to fulfil the Great Commission? Is it possible to identify specific thresholds that people encounter on their journey to knowing God personally?

How do people move from a place of distrust to trust, or from feeling complacent to curious? What causes people who are closed to change to suddenly being open to c...

When people hear the word ‘evangelism’ they often think of either a large-scale evangelistic event or cold calling at the door. But, do these evangelism methods make some Christians uncomfortable sharing their faith? Are there more fruitful methods of reaching people in our own networks?

Over the years, the term "evangelism" has grown to have some negative stereotypes. But could it be time to reclaim it? What changes do we n...

Most Christians seem to find Evangelism a very hard thing to do. Even the people who seem to excel and have the gift of evangelism readily confess their weakness. So, why is it so universally difficult?  

Differing world views can be substantial and reaching across them is not an easy task. But do you ever wonder if reaching across those barriers is even possible in todays society. In an age where predominant thinking is becoming in...

How do we explain the gospel to children in a way they can understand? How do we explain their need for a Saviour without watering down the details? How can we hold their attention long enough to explain what the Bible is all about? How can we be accurate yet sensitive to the fact that they need simpler explanations?

Today’s presentation is broken down into 10 parts, and starts with the creation of the universe, and explains key bib...

The world has 195 countries with thousands of ethnic sub-groups, that bring both challenges and opportunities for evangelism. What key questions should we be asking when considering cross-cultural evangelism?

In the past it was only Christian missionaries going overseas to preach the gospel who had to understand cross-cultural evangelism, but today most of us do not have to go that far to encounter other cultures. While the Christia...

Jesus Christ continues to be the most significant figure in history. We know how he is viewed today, but how was he viewed in his culture. His words and his methods were unlike any others, both then and now. What was it that made him so different? How did he challenge the views and the values around him?

As Jesus taught the tax collectors and sinners gathered around Him, the Pharisees began to mutter to themselves about His open ass...

A vast majority of churches go for years without seeing even one person coming to Christ in faith. By almost any metric, churches across the world are much less evangelistic today than they were in the recent past. Do you ever feel the church has let the world down? 

The apostle Peter told believers to always have a ready answer for the hope that we have, but in these changing and very strange times that directive can be difficult.

Today, there are many who would identify themselves as Christians, yet the Christian life for so many is rooted in convenience rather than Biblical convictions. Convictions are an expression of faith, and Christians often talk about a sense of conviction that grows when God’s word does its work.  But what does it mean to be “convicted” of something?

The Oxford English dictionary defines the word ‘conviction’ as “a firmly held belief...

In an age where almost anything goes, without careful attention churches can easily drift from their founding mission. How can we prevent this from happening, and how can we equip and empower the church to evangelise?  

Jesus was clear that our job as Christians is to proclaim the Gospel and disciple those who are saved, and yet so many churches fail to carry out their founding mission. Perhaps the greatest danger is when a Church d...

For the first time in our lives, churches around the world will be celebrating Easter this weekend by not gathering together. It’s a tragic picture of these sad and scary days. Yet it’s similar in several ways to what happened on the very first Easter.

In many places the Bible describes the fate of the unsaved in terrible, fearful terms. Yet, when we speak to others about what it means to be a Christian, our tendency is to shy away from mentioning what the Gospel compels us to accept as truth.

Laws protect our general safety and ensure our rights as citizens against abuses. While some laws might give us pause, most people understand and uphold laws, and would have no hesitation sp...

As Christians, we know we should share our faith with others and communicating our faith in Christ should be the most natural thing in the world. However, many people feel very intimidated at the thought of sharing the Gospel with a stranger. What has caused this dilemma, and how do we overcome it?

Sometimes we forget that Jesus said, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send...
