You Must Be Born Again (21 min)

Mervyn Hall preaches on a vital Bible text: “You must be born again” (John 3:7). “You” – it’s personal; “must” – it’s essential; “be” – it’s real; “born again” – it’s spiritual. What does it mean to be born again? Why must I be born again? Listen to this vital message and learn your need of a divine regenerative work of God in your life if you ever hope to be in heaven. Do you say you are born again?…

Aaron Callaghan’s Testimony of Salvation (24 min)

Aaron Callaghan tells his story of conversion to Christ while at University in 2013. Growing up in a Christian family and taken to gospel meetings from childhood, Aaron’s story demonstrates conclusively that “knowing the facts” of the gospel is not enough. Aaron wanted to go to University far from home in order to get away from the influence of the gospel – but God overruled his circumstances and Aaron was graciously brought to repentance and faith in Christ (Testimony given…

One Person – Two Natures (36 min)

Michael Penfold preaches on the incarnation of Christ. Answering the mistaken idea that “the Lord took nothing from Mary”, Michael proves from Scripture that our incarnate Saviour was both conceived in and connected to His mother, and that this fact is vital for our redemption. In addition, the fact that the Lord Jesus had two natures – deity and humanity – in one person (‘hypostatic union’) is expounded. It is vital that Christ’s person is never divided, and His natures…

One God in Three Persons (42 min)

Mervyn Hall preaches on the vital and fundamental doctrine of the Trinity – God in three persons. He explains that the Lord Jesus is not “part of God”. Each person in the Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – is wholly, equally, simultaneously and fully God. Mervyn exposes Arianism, modalism and tri-theism, and identifies their modern proponents. He also explains why illustrating the Trinity using examples such as the sun, water, clover or an egg, is misleading and liable…

“Foundations”, and “The Beginning and the End” (48 min)

GOSPEL TENT 2018 – Craig Munro preaches on the parable of the two foundations (Luke 6:46-49). What is your foundation? Reason, religion, good works, feelings? The only true foundation of Christ.

The Lame Man and the Touch of Christ (52 min)

GOSPEL TENT 2018 – Clive Barber preaches the gospel from the narrative of the helpless lame man in Acts 3 who received blessing through faith.

Clive Barber’s Testimony of Salvation (61 min)

Baptised as an 8 day old baby and given communion from 6 months old, Clive Barber spent the first 17 years of his life in a legalistic religious sect that held Christian meetings every day of the year. However, in all that time, Clive never learned he was a lost sinner in need of God’s salvation. Excommunicated and told to leave his home at age 17 (for infringing the sect’s rules), Clive turned against Christ, the Bible and Christians. He…

Out of a Cult (62 min)

Baptised as an 8 day old baby and given communion from 6 months old, Clive Barber spent the first 17 years of his life in a legalistic religious sect. Excommunicated and told to leave his home at age 17, Clive turned against Christianity. He took to drugs, crime and vandalising churches. Though he left the UK and emigrated to Australia, God’s grace followed him there and he finally discovered the true gospel and found peace with God (Message given 6th…

“Why Suffering?” and the “7 Sayings of the Cross” (50 min)

GOSPEL TENT 2018 – Craig Munro preaches on the topic of why God allows suffering. He seeks to show his audience that the presence of suffering in the world should not be a barrier to believing the gospel. Clive Barber compares the 7 questions in Psalm 88:10-13b with the 7 sayings of the Christ on the cross (Messages preached Thur 5th July 2018)

The Heart (40 min)

GOSPEL TENT 2018 – Clive Barber preaches on the “heart of man”. Among other things, he highlights the sinfulness of the heart and the danger of hardening it, instead of obeying the gospel.
