Pastor Chris Karuhije Three Keys to Dealing with Opposition We are still in the beginning stages of studying the Book of Acts, but one thing is already certain: If you and I are going to do something great for God, it will attract opposition from the enemy. We see this in Acts 3 after the healing of the lame man, the extraordinary event that saw a 40-year-old man who had not been able to work since birth miraculously receive strength in his legs. From that miracle, Acts 4:4 tells us that just out of the men, 5000 people came to faith. Naturally, opposition and tribulation immediately ..read more

The Snowball Effect of Faith

Jacqui Bishop The Snowball Effect of Faith Although it’s been an unusually warm winter this year here on the West Coast in North America, we did have one big storm and I couldn’t keep my kids from running outside to play in the fluffy white stuff. A snowy morning means the hats, gloves, coats pants and boots are going to be pulled from the recesses of the closet and put on with haste. They are out before breakfast, so I get a little bit of time to enjoy the quiet with a cup of coffee. There is almost nothing better on a winter morning when the world is blanketed in white, the snow dam ..read more

Why Does God Perform Miracles?
Coastal Church
by Pastor James Fam

Pastor James Fam Why Does God Perform Miracles? The Book of Acts is filled with miracles and supernatural signs and wonders. In Chapter 3, we read about a lame man sitting by the temple gate called Beautiful. As Peter and John were about to enter the temple, the man asked them for money.  This is what follows: “Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, “Look at us!” So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them. Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth ..read more

Pastor Fari Maghami Cleansed and Refreshed: The Power of Repentance and Turning to God Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord. – Acts 3:19  Are you seeking the cleansing and blotting out of your sins, similar to the effectiveness of OxiClean and potent bleach lifting the toughest stains from your laundry? If so, then repent and turn to God. There is nothing in this world that can wash you clean of the stains of your sin except faith in the sanctifying blood of Jesus alone, which was shed on the Cross ..read more

Why Every Christian Needs the Power of the Holy Spirit
Coastal Church
by Pastor Jessica Chen
1M ago
Pastor Jessica Chen Why Every Christian Needs the Power of the Holy Spirit From as early as I can remember, I learned that Jesus loved me and that I wanted to love Him with my whole heart. But despite my best efforts, I would find myself in negative thought patterns, having moments of anger, being tempted to hide the truth, feeling shame or fear, the list goes on. My walk with Jesus felt close at times and at other times, it felt so far away. I didn’t know much about the third person of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit, until later in my adolescent years. I didn’t know that there wa ..read more

Prayer to GO!

Pastor Karen Kepkay Prayer to GO!  About a year and half after I accepted Jesus Christ in my life, and while experiencing His wonderful healing in my heart, I began to sense a greater desire to grow closer to Him and obey His will. This must have been around the year 2002 when our Church had only 2 Sunday services, which was well attended by adults and some families, but only few youths and young adults. At the time, Pastors Dave and Cheryl and a handful of young adults with a passion to see God transform our downtown area began a prayer meeting on Saturday Evenings. I somehow go ..read more

Pastor Fari Maghami The Cradle and the Cross: Connecting Christmas and John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. – John 3:16 Christmas! For many, it’s a time of absolute joy and celebration, while for others, it’s a time they wish they could skip. Some see it as a wonderful time with family and friends, where laughter and gifts are exchanged. Still, for others, it amplifies their loneliness, lack, and sorrow. Christmas is, in fact, a time where love, care, and generosity increase, but so ..read more

Let Every Heart Prepare Him Room
Coastal Church

2M ago
Pastor Jessica Chen Let Every Heart Prepare Him Room At Christmas, we often sing the song, “Joy to the World”, a song that announces the good news about the birth of Jesus, who is Lord and King over all the world. A key lyric in the song includes this: “Let every heart prepare Him room and Heaven and nature sing.” We sing this phrase with excitement and often times casually, but what does it mean to prepare Him (Jesus) room in our hearts? The word “prepare” in its various forms appears many times in the Bible. Generally speaking, this word means to make ready, to make the neces ..read more

Advent: The Gift of Longing for Home

Jacqui Bishop Advent: The Gift of Longing for Home I grew up with an annual Advent calendar from the grocery store – maybe you had one too, the waxy chocolate inside each door was pressed into the mold of a bell or stocking and the final day would be Santa. My Mom had some other Advent activities around the house, and the church I grew up in used an Advent Wreath with candles for the four Sundays leading up to Christmas. We had many traditions that kept our family full of expectation for the season each year – one of my core memories is that we would always get a fresh Christmas ..read more

Pastor Chris Karuhije The Deeper the Darkness, the Greater the Glory Have you ever been in a situation so dire and calamitous that you were not certain you would be able to escape? Perhaps it was depression and despair that gripped you after the loss of a loved one. Perhaps it was legal troubles you were embroiled in, or financial hardships with no end in sight. Perhaps it was all the above or you might be in that place now. As Rune preached this weekend, the deeper the darkness in our world, the greater His glory is shown through His church! No Way Out… But God!Paul went through such ..read more
