Sermon on the Amount 1

How did Jesus handle the topic of money? We think we know, but when we dig a little deeper, we're challenged to think again.

How did Jesus do outreach 6 - Field work

Jesus sent out his first outreach disciples seemingly totally unprepared for their task. We will never feel prepared enough or know enough or be brave enough - so we should get out and reach out to others despite feeling unprepared.

How did Jesus do outreach 5 - Parables

Do the churches of NZ really need to be cool and entertaining, or is a bit of boring okay, even good for us maybe? Explore the impact of how Jesus used parables to teach and what it means for us today.

How did Jesus do outreach 4 - The least of these

Jesus came to seek and to save sinners. A woman who was considered a great sinner by her peers was forgiven by God. The grace of God is offered to everyone - can we be more like Jesus in reaching out to those we might otherwise generally avoid?

How did Jesus do outreach 3 - Upside down teaching

How did Jesus turn the teachings of the world upside down? What does this mean for followers of Jesus and how we reach out to others and bring them to faith?

How did Jesus do outreach 2 - Invitation

Jesus offered his invitation to 'good people' and sinners alike. How does this affect how we do outreach today?

How Did Jesus Do Outreach 1 - Healing

So often Jesus' interaction with the world beyond his immediate followers is a healing. In fact if you looked in the gospel of Mark, roughly one third of that whole gospel are healing stories. And this lands us in a really tough place as we try to emulate how Jesus did outreach.

Pause Then Participate

This Sunday we celebrate with Lydia and Jack as they get baptised. Pastor Jess shares some reflections from Easter camp and challenges us all to pause then participate:
"When our lives are filled with clutter, we struggle to pause.
When we struggle to pause, we struggle to see the details.
When we struggle to see the details, we struggle to see God."

Nehemiah 11-13 'A New Normal'

We return to this series for the final events in the story of Nehemiah. Tim Page gives this sermon.
We apologise for the loss of sound and picture at the beginning of this sermon. We pick up Tim’s words as he recaps.

Easter Sunday at Mt Albert Baptist Church

He is risen! He is risen indeed! Join with us as Pastor Rob Lovatt re-tells the Resurrection story and reminds us of the significance it holds for us today, with one of the most practical applications: the baptism of Sam and Freda. Hear them share their story and publicly affirm their trust in the resurrected Jesus as Saviour and Lord.
