The Wondrous Cross (40 min)

Eugene Higgins preaches about the death of Christ at “the wondrous cross” – an event which provided both the greatest revelation of our ruin as sinners, and the strongest repudiation of our own righteous efforts to save ourselves. Why did Christ have to suffer and die if we could get to heaven by our own efforts? He uses the life story of Isaac Watts as the springboard for this message.

Believe in the Light (36 min)

Eugene Higgins preaches on “Christ as the light of the world” and urges his audience to “believe in the light” while they have the light (John 12:36). In an exceedingly solemn and searching message Mr Higgins describes the light of God’s holiness exposing the corrupt heart of man, both in time and at the final judgment. He uses the life story of Hugh Latimer as the springboard for this message. Click here for the handout (Message preached June 16th 2017)

The Fear of God (35 min)

Eugene Higgins preaches on the “the fear of God” and relates it to the words of Amos 4:12 in the Bible, which says, “Prepare to meet thy God”. You must meet God, but you are not automatically “ready” for that meeting…and only Christ can make you ready! Mr Higgins uses the life story of Robert Boyle as the springboard for this message.

Help for the Helpless (36 min)

Eugene Higgins preaches on the “helplessness of the sinner” – a Bible truth much neglected in the present day. Many who apparently acknowledge their “sinfulness” have never understood their helplessness, and thus do not know the saving power of Christ. Mr Higgins uses the life story of J.S. Bach as the springboard for this message. His readings were Matt 14:22-33 and Rom 5:6. Click here for the handout (Message preached June 13th 2017)

Jesus Only (36 min)

Eugene Higgins preaches on salvation through “Jesus only” (Matt 17:8), through “faith only” (Luke 8:50), resting on God’s “word only” (Matt 8:8). He presses the uniqueness of Christ as the only Saviour and the importance of resting on what God says – not on your own personal feelings – for the possession and assurance of salvation. Mr Higgins uses the conversion of Martin Luther as the springboard for this message. Click here for the handout (Message preached June 12th 2017)

Immense Mercy (37 min)

Eugene Higgins preaches on God’s immense mercy, His amazing love and His infinite grace (from Gal 2:20). He ponders how much we all deserve wrath, how little we deserve mercy, but how greatly indebted we are to the mercy of God in Christ. Mr Higgins uses the life story of Charles Wesley, author of the hymn And Can It Be, as the springboard for this message. Click here for the handout (Message preached June 11th 2017)

Christ – A Great Saviour (36 min)

Eugene Higgins preaches on “Christ a great Saviour”. Reading in 1 Chron 17:16-17 and 1 Tim 1:12-15, Mr Higgins expounds the grace of God to sinners. He weaves his comments around the words of the aged John Newton (author of “Amazing Grace“) who said “I remember two things – I am a great sinner; but Christ is a great Saviour”. The free grace gospel is objectionable to self-righteous people, but it is the only way to heaven! Click here for…

No Friend Like Christ (28 min)

Eugene Higgins preaches on greatest friend you can know. The Lord Jesus “loveth at all times” (Prov 17:17). Christ loved sinners from heaven, and during His life, and in His death at the cross. He loves sinners now, in their need and in their danger of perishing in hell. Mr Higgins uses the life story of the martyr Polycarp as the springboard for this message.

Danger and Deliverance (34 min)

Using the narrative of “the storm on the Sea of Galilee” in Mark Ch 4, Eugene Higgins preaches on “sinners travelling to eternity”. He likens the perilous storm to death, “the danger common to all mankind”, and the quenching of the storm by Christ to salvation, “the deliverance available to all mankind”. Mr Higgins uses the life story of the artist Rembrandt – who painted himself into a picture of the storm on Galilee – as the springboard for this message. Click…

The Reality of Being Lost (40 min)

Eugene Higgins preaches a searching and solemn message on a number of “pressing realities” that you need to face. The reality of death, of being deceived, of being lost, of being awakened to your danger…and of being saved (based on 2 Cor 4:3-6). In addition to telling parts of his own testimony of salvation, Mr Higgins uses the life story of Adoniram Judson as the springboard for his message.

Christ My Substitute (42 min)

Eugene Higgins preaches a powerful message on Christ – a substitute required, provided and received. The hopelessness and helplessness of the sinner’s situation is laid bare; then Christ is introduced as the substitute who experiences and accomplishes what the sinner never could. Mr Higgins uses the life story of Sir James Simpson as the springboard for his message. Click here for the handout (Message preached June 5th 2017)

Eternal Happiness (33 min)

Eugene Higgins preaches on two questions: “Why is happiness so elusive and temporary on earth?”, and “Why is happiness so eternal and unbroken in heaven?” The reason is clear when one understands the effects of sin – a force which has robbed humanity of a relationship with God, of significance and meaning, and of hope after death.  Mr Higgins uses the story of Perpetua and Felicitas – and the meaning of their names – as the springboard for this message.…
