What is the Church? (52 min)

PART 1 of 6 – In the first of a series of 6 messages on “Questions about the assembly”, Tom Bentley (1924-2011) answers the question, “What is the church”? He starts by introducing “the church which is His body”, and makes the all-important point that this church did not exist prior to the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2). Looking at the “church which is His body” dispensationally, symbolically, mystically and eternally, Mr Bentley distinguishes it from the local assembly, which…

The Challenge of the Unmanned Gap (37 min)

David Gilliland preaches on God’s word to Israel in Ezekiel Ch 22, a chapter in which God speaks about the state of the land, the sins of the land, and finally the search in the land: God’s search for a man to “stand in the gap”. Along life’s journey there is a need for boundaries and hedges with no gaps. Personal hedges, family hedges, marriage hedges, business hedges, and assembly hedges. Mr Gilliland speaks on the hedge of separation, of…

Long-suffering, Gentleness and Goodness (51 min)

PART 3 of 4 – Dan Rudge preaches on the second triad of fruits in the list of the fruits of the Spirit: long-suffering, gentleness and goodness.

The Heavens Do Rule (13 min)

The financial crisis; climate change; Brexit; US riots and elections; big-tech domination; Coronavirus. The list of stressful issues and crises just keeps growing. How should a Christian react to a “world out of control”? Michael Penfold reminds us of the words of Dan 4:26, “The heavens do rule”. We worship a God who is sovereign over all and who delights to make even the wrath of man to praise Him (Message preached in Newtownstewart, Co Tyrone, Jan 1st 2017).

Albert Hull – Pugwash Conference gospel message (25 min)

In 2002, in the big Tent in Pugwash Junction conference in Nova Scotia, Canada, Albert Hull (1936-2015) preached the gospel powerfully, majoring on the theme of “the precious blood of Christ”. He read 4 scriptures and heralded the gospel to those who are “without strength” (Rom 5:6), “without excuse” (Rom 1:20), who will die “without mercy” (Heb 10:28-29), unless the are saved through the precious blood of Christ, for “without the shedding of blood” is no remission of sins (Heb…

Bible Basics for Beginners – How Can I Know? (38 min)

PART 6 of 6 – Sandy Higgins preaches on one of the most important questions facing young believers as they start out in their new life in Christ: how can I know what the will of God is for my life? What should I do? Where should I live? Who should I marry? Do I go on feelings, or on some kind of “spiritual hunch”?  An excellent message giving much needed scriptural guidance. Readings: Num 9:19-20, 10:1-2, 12-16, 33-35a, Psa…

The Everlasting God (50 min)

David Gilliland preaches on the three mentions of the expression “the everlasting God” in our English Bible. The everlasting God of the Patriarch (Gen 21:31-34), of the Prophet (Isa 40:27-31) and of the Preacher (Rom 16:25-27). An encouraging and strengthening message that focuses our hearts on the greatness and glory of the One who is from everlasting to everlasting (Message originally preached in Curzon Street, Derby).

“I thought the Lord had come” (30 min)

Willie Fenton and his brother were both saved on the same night in the summer of 1963. Willie had known the gospel all of his life, but the urgency of the matter had never really gripped him; until one night, when he realised that, if the Lord returned, he would be left behind for judgment. This is a touching story, full of interest and weighty spiritual import. Readings; Heb 12:25, Matt 24:38-42, John 3:16 (Story originally told in Northern Ireland)

You Did Run Well… (9 min)

Peter Orasuk (1948-2005) preaches on the powerful words in Gal 5:7 “You did run well”. How many Christians start well, but issues like legalism, licentiousness and lethargy cross their path and their progress is hindered. This short but powerful message from Peter is a reminder of the need to persevere in the Christian race and not be sidetracked. (Message preached in the Maritimes, Canada)
