It would seem many leaders are rushing to cover themselves and convince their flocks that the standpoint of total conformity and total division is the right one. What's worse, is that they are cherry picking scripture to do this. Where last week was woe unto those acting out of greed and selfishness, this week shares the message of woe to those who would act out of cowardice.
Probably not the most popular message about Covid 19 and the Christian faith. Whilst the Church of Carpe Crucis does not preach recklessness or carelessness, it will not kowtow to fear, in Jesus's name.
After an upsetting meeting with a couple after last week's sermon, a clear message for those loud and proud about their culture and identity in the same.
A blessed summer's day down by the banks of the Waikato River. A chance to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and to give witness to a new member of the Kingdom of God to some questioning young minds. All glory to God!

After sermons about our position in biblical history and attitude towards the Kingdom of God, what better way to resume a journey than by checking for the right direction to take us forward? In short, a return to the simple gospel. Watch too for a physical representation of how to overcome the incoming tide, all for the glory of God :-)
What, on the surface and in the current times and climes, is a difficult subject to broach, is actually relatively easy when viewed through the authoritative lens of the Holy Bible. Controversially, after years of study, experience and claimed inspiration form God, this preacher humbly shares his opinion and belief with regard to the inspired nature of the Koran too.
Continuing the theme of looking at our position, Biblically, historically, relatively, and following on from the bold proclamation of this preacher and co founder of the Church of Carpe Crucis, a look at YOU, for a change, in Jesus's name.
Um, well, yeah. I am checking to evaluate and refute or validate this. I know God has told me who I am, but there are, well, implications.
The first of a two part sermon on a number of connected issues;-
Michael Robert Jackson was baptised in the name of Jesus in 2012, after a forty year walk in the wilderness, ten years after he first came to Christ. He is the least of God's children.
