You may have heard the term 'Spiritual Warfare' once or twice, and wondered what that means. That outside of the natural, there is a supernatural battle taking place in the spirit. But how can us worshipping God be counted as warfare? This week Lead Ps. Miles Paludan explores how worshipping God is not only beneficial but necessary in the walk of Faith.
Worship brings freedom. You may have felt it as you began to sing, something within you started to change slightly. Perspective, attitude, emotions, peace; all these things can change when we worship. But worshipping while life is difficult or uncertain is not always easy or straightforward. This week, Gold Coast Associate Pastor Isaac Lenton brings a word on how we can worship God not just through trials, but because of them as well.
Worship is expressing love to God. Often however, we can differ in how we worship God. It might be in the car listening to music, at a church gathering, at a lifegroup. With our hands raised, kneeling, quietly contemplating; but how can we worship authentically no matter what environment we're in? This week Lead Pastor Miles Paludan begins our series "Heart of Worship" by exploring the biblical foundations of Worship within the Bible!

If you hear the phrase "Being in ministry", you will likely have some common things come to mind. A church, a preacher, a service ministry. And whilst all these things are true, "being in ministry" is a call that is not only reserved for those that work in the church; but for those that are a part of the body of the Church. This week Lead Ps. Miles Paludan talks through how we are all called into ministry, through our workplaces, our social circles, and our studies!
The great commission is the calling of every Christ follower, to go into the world, be salt and light; and to make disciples of all nations. No small feat, right?

Brad Whittington brings a word on how all of us have the ability to disciple those around us, and to bring the hope of Jesus to our local communities.

"In every dream journey, there comes a moment when you have to quit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at death. You have to go after a dream that is destined to fail without divine intervention." ~ Mark Batterson The story of Joseph and his 'technicolour' coat is a well known one; but understanding the reality of Joseph's situation and his dreams, and that sometimes our lives don't look too different; is harder to reach.
