Dear family in Christ

By God’s grace and enabling, I will be starting an expository sermon series on the theme “The Love Story of God’s Redeeming Grace”. It is a preaching series of 52 sermons covering salvific themes from Genesis to Revelation over the next 2 years of 2018 and 2019.

This sermon series will be:

  • Biblical        –  We will cover key biblical texts and theological themes from Genesis to Revelation
  • Historical    –  We will study the common thread of the sovereign Lord’s salvation plan in biblical history
  • Theological – We will know Almighty God as revealed in holy Scripture and row in our relationship with Him
  • Missional   –   We will see the loving God’s missional heart and obey his command to bring the gospel to the nations
  • Pastoral      –   We will reflect together for spiritual growth, committed discipleship and purposeful action

Let me share my Vision and Purpose for St John’s Chapel as we embark on this long sermon series:

As we see the gracious salvation plan of the missionary God, may we be a missionary church of Spirit-filled committed disciples of Jesus Christ, always ready to take the gospel to the nations.

After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”  Revelation 7: 9-10
