Do Our Prayers Go Unanswered?

Do Our Prayers Go Unanswered? Bill Bradford
Pastor, Brisbane

Do you feel God is answering your prayers? Perhaps you have been asking God for help or relief and God seems as distant as ever. But is this true? Would a loving God turn his back on a sincere request? This sermon addresses this issue which concerns all Christians at one time or another.

Baptism Bill Bradford

When we are baptised we enter into a covenant, an exceedingly serious commitment, spoken of by Christ and carried out throughout His Church. Many churches teach baptism in various forms, but how did Christ practise and explain it? At baptism what exactly did we say? What did we mean? What did we do? After baptism are we saved? Why are we immersed in water?

Speaking In Tongues

Speaking In Tongues Reg Wright

This subject of "speaking in tongues" has caused considerable discussion and controversy within the Christian community, with some embracing the phenomenon wholeheartedly, and others strongly opposing it. Some churches emphasise this practice and teach that Christians should hope and pray for the experience of speaking in tongues. Other churches do not encourage speaking in tongues, and some even forbid it.

What does the Bible say about this subject of "speaking in tongues?"

Saved by Grace?

Saved by Grace? Bill Bradford

Are we saved by grace? Do we understand the grace of God? Do we respond correctly to God's grace? Where do works and the keeping of God's Law fit in with His grace? Eph 2:8-10 For by grace you have been saved...it is the gift of God, not of works... For we are His workmanship.

Living Honestly With God

Living Honestly With God Bill Bradford

Studying God's Word in sincerity helps us to discern our own thoughts and intents. (God already knows them - we cannot deceive God!) To come boldly before God, we must be honest with Him. Pretence before God is not a good basis for a relationship. We need to emulate David's prayer and his intent as recorded in Psalm 139:23-24 Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me... We cannot be honest with God unless we are honest with ourselves.
