Gospel – “Absolutes” and “What is thy name?” (52 min)

EASTER CONF 2019 – GOSPEL – Frank Sona preaches on three absolutes. Absolute sufficiency (Acts 4:12); absolute certainty (John 10:28), and absolute solemnity (Acts 8:21). Ian Jackson closes with a look at two people in the Bible who were asked “What is thy name?” A seaching gospel meeting where the audience is directly and earnestly challenged as to sin, salvation and eternity (Messages preached 1st Apr 2018)

Bible Reading in Romans 3:19-31 (95 min)

EASTER CONF 2019 – Ian Jackson opens up Romans 3:19-31, a passage that gives the doctrinal underpinnings of the gospel and explains how God can be just, as well as the justifier of someone who believes in Christ. All Christians, and especially all gospel preachers, must get to grips with this hugely significant Bible passage! A discussion of the passage follows, verse by verse, with help from Frank Sona, Mark Sweetnam and others (Bible Reading from Apr 21st 2019)

Pray Without Ceasing (42 min)

EASTER CONF 2018 – From 1 Thess 5:17, “Pray without ceasing”, Ian Jackson preaches on the need for private, fervent, believing prayer in the life of every Christian. “The secret of failure, is failure in secret”. He urges us to be more prayerful and gives guidance on how to address God in prayer  (Message preached Apr 20th 2019)

The House of Amram and the Heritage of God (40 min)

PART 5 – Ian Jackson preaches on the home of Amram (and Jochebed), the parents of Moses. He highlights the faith of Moses’s parents who had no “Egyptian ambitions” for their son, but saw Moses as a stewardship from the Lord to be raised for Him and to serve Him as the deliverer of His people. Their task was to raise Moses in such a way as would fit him for that role. A message designed to guide parents in…

The House of Ananias and the Assembly of God (51 min)

PART 4 – Ian Jackson preaches on the home of Ananias (and Sapphira) from Acts Ch 5. This sad home was marked by pretence, by hypocrisy and by deception. This couple were pretending to be what they weren’t. The root and the fruit of their iniquity is explained and the audience is urged to have, by contrast, homes marked by truth, holiness and heart devotion to God (Message preached 18th Feb 2017)

The House of Abraham and the Worship of God (48 min)

PART 3 – Ian Jackson preaches on the home of Abraham, a man in whose life the altar and the worship of God always came first. This is a powerful message on the topic of the need for a “family altar” where families read the word of God and pray together daily. A vital message on a vital subject that needs to be heeded in a busy technological age (Message preached 18th Feb 2017)

The House of Aquila and the Work of God (57 min)

PART 2 – Ian Jackson preaches on the home of Aquila and Priscilla, a married couple in the New Testament who, mightily used in the work of the Lord, serve as a “pattern couple” for others to follow. Ian develops his message around three headings: the “priority” of the work of the Lord in their home, the “equality” of their share in that work, and the “variety” of their labours in evangelism, teaching, hospitality and assembly function (Message preached 17th…

The House of Achan and the Enemies of God (54 min)

PART 1 – Ian Jackson preaches on the home of Achan from Joshua Chs 6-7. What Achan did, and what he brought into his home, negatively affected him, his children and the whole assembly of God’s people. The lesson? Home life impacts all of life – work, family, and assembly. What is needed today is a restoration of sanctified homes where God is honoured. Mr Jackson asks “Is it time your home changed?” (Message preached 16th Feb 2017)

The Ark of the Covenant (39 min)

PART 6 – Ian Jackson preaches about the Ark of the Covenant that stood in the Holy of Holies in the Tabernacle of Moses. He sees it as a picture of the risen exalted Christ presently “sitting where only God can sit” in the throne in heaven. The Ark of the Covenant, with its acacia wood overlaid with gold, is a clear and powerful picture of the humanity and deity of Christ – two whole and perfect natures in One…

Sins Forgiven, and Two Definite Facts (44 min)

GOSPEL TENT 2014 – Ian Jackson preaches on three mentions of the forgiveness of sin in the New Testament (Luke 5:20, Luke 7:48 and 1 John 2:12) and presses the need of forgiveness on his audience. Mervyn Hall preaches on Romans 5:19 and outlines “two deliberate acts” and “two definite facts” in connection with the sin of Adam and the sacrifice of Christ (Messages preached 19th July 2014)

Saved at the Last Minute and The Hard Journey Home (50 min)

GOSPEL TENT 2014 – Ian Jackson preaches on a man who was “saved at the last minute”. Moments from life’s end, hanging on the cross, the only hope for the dying thief was God’s salvation. You too could be moments from death…but will you wake up in time and be saved? Mervyn Hall continues the theme with a look at a rebel son who took “a long outbound journey further and further into sin”. Finally, far from home and in…

A State of Grace and Types of Ground (50 min)

GOSPEL TENT 2014 – Ian Jackson preaches on the difference salvation makes. It finds sinners in a “state of nature”, brings them into a “state of grace” and finally lands them in a “state of glory”. Mervyn Hall takes a look at the different types of ground in the parable of the sower and makes some challenging points as to where his audience really stands before God (Messages preached 14th July 2014)
