You Must Be Born Again - Frank Sona

In the Bible, the Lord Jesus Christ answered all the questions that men put to Him. Some were genuine; others were nothing but trickery. But the most important questions were the ones He Himself asked. These were honest questions, questions that really matter. Like the day He asked the people, "What do you think of Me?" What a simple and yet searching question. And He’s looking for honesty in your answer. So, what DO you think of Christ? What is YOUR answer to life's greatest issue?

Look Unto Me and Be Saved - David Hierlihy

Did you know that God describes Himself in the Bible? He says He is the ONLY God - there is no other. He says that He is just - perfectly right and fair in His assessment of things. And He says that He is a Saviour. That is, He desires to save those who don't and can't meet up to His holy standards. But how can He do this? Well, there was only one who could do this – the Lord Jesus Christ. He was the holy and sinless One who gave His life to ransom others. Are YOU one of them?He is the isis

The Rapture Explained - Jack Hay

Last week we were considering the great truth that the Lord Jesus Christ, the same One who lived here on earth over 2000 years ago, who died for our sins, rose again from the dead, and ascended into heaven, will one day come again. It’s a wonderful and exciting truth for Christians, encouraging our hearts in this sad and dreary scene, and inspiring us to live each remaining day for His glory. But it’s bad news for unbelievers. For them, it will be a tragic surprise. They would be left behind to face the terrible Tribulation and later, judgment for their sins. Speaker Jack Hay, continues on this topic today starting with a reading from 1 Thessalonians Chapter 4 which describes this great event in some detail.

The Rapture Promised - Jack Hay

Well, one of the greatest hopes for Christians worldwide is the coming again of the Lord Jesus Christ – the rapture. The apostle Paul says in 1 Thessalonians 4:18, “Comfort one another with these words”. What a joy to know that at any moment Christ could return to take all believers to be with Himself – forever removed from sin and sorrow. Of course, the prospect of the Lord’s return is not a comforting one for those whose sins are not yet forgiven. They are not ready for that shout. Be honest. If that describes you, you should listen to our message today and  learn more about this great, soon-coming event, and how you can be prepared.

Alienation and God's Remedy for It - Dan Shutt

Our broadcast today deals with our alienation from God - and its consequences. But, here's the good part - there was One who was willing to bear this alienation, this separation for us. It was none other than the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary - where He suffered the separation from God that we should have experienced. It is possible for you to find forgiveness of sins and get to know God personally - to close up that gap of separation once and for all. Interested?

No One Like Him - Stephen Harper

What a glorious message the gospel is! And what a glorious Saviour Jesus is! The one who was made perfect through His sufferings, who by Himself purged our sins on the cross of Calvary, and who passed into the heavens and abides there today awaiting the day when we shall be with Him. Do you have a message any greater than this? Do you have a religious leader greater than this? Do you have a way to God more sure and glorious than this?

Joy to the World - Eugene Higgins

The Bible has a wonderful theme throughout it - JOY! This week's message takes a look at the familiar Christmas carol "Joy to the World" and explains how it is that people like you and me can enter into a secure, meaningful, and everlasting relationship with the God of heaven - through our Lord Jesus Christ - and come to know the joy that He wants us to have.

A Name Called Wonderful - Marvin Derksen

Isaiah wrote over 700 years ago in Chapter 9 and Verse 6 the following words: “For unto us a child is born; unto us a Son is given." We know that this child, this Son, was the Lord Jesus Christ Himself who was born in Bethlehem over 2000 years ago. But He didn’t begin his life there. The Bible says that He was the Creator of all things, the eternal Son of God. He was really born. He really died. He really rose again. And He will ultimately rule the universe as King of Kings and Lord of Lords! Do you know Him?

What a Friend We Have in Jesus

Speaker Peter Ramsay considers the marvel of the friendship of Christ. He's a personal friend - a friend you need to know one-on-one - personally. He's the prodigal's friend. Have you ever acknowledged that YOU need Him? He's a continual friend - one who will never leave us or forsake us. And He's an eternal friend - His is a friendship that will not end at death. So, how about it? Do YOU have a friend in Jesus? Are YOU saved?

Atheism and the Origin of the Universe, Part 2 - Michael Penfold

Atheists have proposed some alternatives to God as creator, such as - the universe doesn't actually exist, or that the universe always existed, or that the universe came from nothing - created itself, so to speak. You be the judge of these supposed alternatives as evangelist and teacher Michael Penfold explains each one.

The Thief on the Cross - Peter Ramsay

Calvary is the focal point of all history. It's the reason the Lord Jesus came. But there were two others that died that day. Two criminals - murderers and thieves. Both had lived a life of sin and rebellion. Both were the same literal distance from the Lord himself. Both had equal opportunity. But only one of them went to heaven. Listen to this episode to find out why.

Looking to Christ - David Petterson

Have you ever wondered deep down about your life? Why you're here? Where you're going? Have you ever wondered if answers to such questions even exist? Has following a system of religious ideas and practices brought you the peace and purpose you're looking for? Well, the Bible gives the answer to our soul's longings. It's both profound and simple at the same time - "Look unto Me and be ye saved all the ends of the earth for I am God and there is none else." Yes, God is the only One who can bring salvation to the soul. The work has been done by Christ on Calvary, and salvation is a free gift offered to all who will accept it. Will you?

Forgivenees for Your Sins - Brody Thibodeau

There's an interesting story in the Bible about the healing of a paralytic man by the Lord Jesus Christ. Amidst all the drama of breaking up the roof and lowering the man down into the crowd, the Lord Jesus remained unfazed. He didn't even seem that concerned about the man's physical condition. "Your sins are forgiven", He said. Why would He say this? The man needed to be healed, didn't he? But to Christ, he had a more obvious need - the forgiveness of sins. The same goes for you and me.

Is the Bible True, Part 2 - Eugene Higgins

The Bible has the unique power to convict the soul, to save the soul, and to give comfort and assurance to all who trust in it. Hebrews 4:12 says that the Word of God is living and powerful and able to discern the thoughts and intents of the heart. It reaches into the inmost heart of our being. It convicts. It saves.

Anchorpoint applies a Christian perspective to the world and all its issues; to mankind and all of its problems. Of course, our text is solely the Bible, the Word of God. Why is it that we stand so firmly on this book? How is it that we can rely on it solely as our word of counsel? How can we know for certain that the Bible is worthy of our trust? Is the Bible really true? Well, today’s broadcast deals precisely with these questions.

Prepare to Meet Your God - Gaius Goff

The Bible is filled with messages to us about the importance of being ready to meet God - of preparing for that coming day. There are facts that we cannot evade. We were created by God. We are going to die. We are going to meet Him. But God is on your side. He has provided total preparation for you in the death of His Son. Will you accept Christ and be prepared to meet God once and for all?

God's Marvellous Mercy - Matthew Cain

The Lord Jesus often used many contrasts in order that we might feel the full impact of the lessons He was teaching. This week’s message is about the story of the Pharisee and the publican in which such a contrast could not be greater. There were two individuals who attempted to approach God is diametrically opposing ways. Only one received God's mercy and forgiveness. Which way will you take?

The Origin of Evil - Michael Penfold

The origin of evil has always been a controversial topic. It is basically at the root of all world religions. What is evil? How can we define it? Why is there so much evil in the world? Is it possible to get rid of it? Well, it's quite obvious that man's attempts over thousands of years have been futile. Higher education, a better environment, more government policies, a greater sense of community, self-actualization. All of these alternatives - and many more - have made tried to no avail. Maybe, it's time we listened to what the God of the Bible has to say about it.

The Promised Prophet - Eugene Higgins

We often don’t think of the Lord Jesus Christ as a prophet – but He was – and the greatest of all prophets! Previous prophets were sent BY God to bring messages and announcements FROM God. They were merely transmitters of God’s truth. They communicated God’s mind to the people. But this greatest of all prophets did so much more than this. He WAS the mind of God and never had to preface His words with “Thus says the Lord”. Instead, He would say “But I say unto you”. He was the authoritative voice of God incarnate and people like you and me were given the privilege of hearing His words firsthand. But what about you? Have you believed the WORD?

Gambling at the Foot of the Cross - Peter Ramsay

You know, when we think about the cross of Christ, it really does impress upon us the stark contrast between the ultimate expression of love and compassion and the unremitting display of wickedness and cruelty. One of the many acts of careless indifference were those of the soldiers who actually played games of chance at the foot of the cross. They were gambling for mere clothing as three men suffered on crosses right in front of them. Though callous as this is, many people even today are gambling with their souls, frittering away precious moments on things that don’t matter. Let’s listen to this week’s message by speaker Peter Ramsay.

The Person of the Gospel - Marvin Dersen

The clearest and most concise description of what the gospel message is all about is given in 1 Corinthians 15 and verses 3 to 4, which reads, “For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that He was buried, that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.” It is clear from this portion of scripture that the person of the gospel (the Lord Jesus Christ) is all important. A sinless, spotless sacrifice was made on our behalf at Calvary. And God, being well-pleased with that atoning work, raised Him from the dead. We all need to look to the person of the gospel – Jesus – not to a church, a system of beliefs, or even a spiritual leader. Trust Christ alone today.

The Coming Storm, Part 1 - Phil Coulson

Almost 3000 years ago, the great prophet Isaiah penned these tremendous words in Isaiah 32, verses 1 and 2 - "Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment; and a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land." What did he mean? Who was this king? What is this tempest? When will all this happen? And how can a man be a hiding place? In our message today, you will hear answers to these and other questions as Phil Coulson relates Isaiah's words to the apostle John's revelations about the coming judgment on this planet.

Last week's message contained some thought-provoking teaching on future events as foretold by the prophet Isaiah and the apostle John - and how a MAN will be a hiding place in the time of storm. This broadcast goes into more detail of what that judgment will involve. And it's not a pretty picture - but one we must consider in order to realize the extent of God's dissatisfaction with this world of sin. It's all given in the Bible as a warning to us all. So, please take the time to listen to what God has to say about the coming storm and the remedy that God offers us.

I Perish, I Thirst, I Believe - Stephen Harper

The gospel message does not require an intellectual understanding of Bible truth. It is an invitation for a personal relationship with the God of the universe. As with all personal interactions, there must be honesty. God knows all, so there's no use in trying to hide anyway. So, it's best to come clean. In this week’s broadcast, we will be looking at three simple statements starting with the "I perish" of the prodigal, Christ’s poignant cry on the cross, and the sinner’s words "I believe". We trust that these will be your words after you hear this message and that you will enter into the joy of sins forgiven.

The Floodgates of Heaven - Dan Shutt

The broadcast this week at three very important truths from the Word of God. They basically comprise the gospel message. These are God’s wrath, God’s justice, and God’s grace. The Bible alludes to these topics time and time again.Yet, many today downplay God’s holiness and displeasure with sin. The cross of Calvary is hardly ever thought of in terms of God’s eternal justice being satisfied on our account. And sadly, not many understand or even know about the wonderful grace of God displayed towards sinners. We hope that these truths will be made clearer to you through this message. There is salvation for YOU, but you must agree to your need to escape the wrath of God and look to Calvary where divine justice was forever satisfied, and believing sinners saved by the grace of God.

Precious Words for Troubled Hearts - Peter Ramsay

I’m sure we all agree that we live in a troubled and broken world. Though it has always been that way, it seems that things just keep getting worse. It is certainly not at all what God intended for mankind. Our sin and depravity have devastated our beautiful planet, but even more so, our lives, futures, hopes, relationships – and most of all, ourselves! On occasions we read in the Bible of how the Lord Jesus grieved over the destruction that sin has brought to our world. Sickness and death – both physical and spiritual. He often wept when He saw the consequences of rejecting Him. We hope that you will respond to the tender entreaties of Jesus once again as you listen to this touching message about the love of God – for YOU. Take heed to the precious words in the Bible that point to eternal life and eternal satisfaction to all who believe them.

Eternal Life - Matthew Cain

Today’s topic is about something that we’re sure most thinking people would like to know more about. It’s all about eternal life. After all, who wouldn’t want to live forever? To be in a place of no sorrow and suffering for all eternity? Right? Well, you will see from our message today that eternal life is much more than that. Yes, it is only available from God himself, but it is so much more than just quantity of life – that is, forever life – but it also includes the quality of that life. It is not just more of what we have now. No. It is a truly awesome existence for those transformed by the power of God to live eternally in His presence in a state of total harmony and purpose with God himself. And eternal life begins the moment you first believe – here and now!

The Sheep and the Shepherd - Eugene Higgins

You know, sheep and shepherds were commonplace in Bible times. It is easy to see the contrast between the sheep and the shepherd. Sheep are helpless, weak, and needy creatures. They commonly lose their way and become easy targets for hungry predators. We are a lot like sheep. And spiritually we are easy prey for the devil who as a roaring lion seeks for those he can devour. On the other hand, we have a seeking Shepherd who is also looking for the sheep, ready to lay down His life for its rescue. What wonderful words Isaiah writes, “All we like sheep have gone astray. We have turned every one to his own way. And the Lord has laid on Him (Christ) the iniquity of us all.” Trust Him today, won’t you?

From His unique conception to His unique death, there was never anybody like Him on any level. No one can compare to Jesus. What a wonderful Saviour He is, my friend. To miss Him is to miss the whole purpose that God has in store for you. To miss Him is to be separated from God eternally. So, come to this unique One today, won’t you?

The Born Again Experience - Shad Kember

If you’ve ever read John chapter 3, you will find three imperatives there that are vital for all of us to understand. The first one is the necessity for every one of us to have spiritual life – we MUST be born again. John goes on to give another vital mandate in this chapter – this time regarding the Lord Jesus himself – when He said that He MUST be lifted up. Why? And the third imperative is all about the attitude and lifestyle of a Christian AFTER salvation – where Christ continually increases and the new Christian decreases. Upon the new birth, Christ becomes our all-in-all, we start to be transformed into His likeness, and we have a growing desire for Christ to be praised and exalted above everything else. Have you ever had this born again experience?

Who Then Can Be Saved - Gaius Goff

The word ‘saved’ is a very weighty word in the Bible. But it is used very often. In fact, the disciples often asked the Lord Jesus questions about what it means to be saved. He emphasized to them the importance of making it a priority in life – even impressing upon them that they needed to ‘strive’ to enter in. This means that we need to take the gospel message personally and seriously. Have you?

One such story was about a grand wedding feast prepared by a King for His son. He intended for everyone to come. The invitation went out, “All things are ready – Come”! He had covered the cost of absolutely everything. In fact, even the correct wedding attire was provided. There was nothing to do but to accept the invitation and turn up on the appointed day. Sadly, they totally rejected the invitation. Have you? We hope not!

How marvellous is the story of the grace of God! The Sovereign of the universe closed His eyes in death for the vilest sinner on earth. You find it hard to believe?

Well, just one small word actually – sin. Yes, sin entered the world and destroyed the paradise that God intended for man. But as soon as sin entered – through Adam – the promise was made of a Redeemer who would restore the world and the humans in it. This would be no less that the Messiah himself – the Lord Jesus Christ. And what a complete and wonderful restoration He has made on the cross of Calvary for sinners! But where do YOU stand? Are you redeemed?

The Three Looks of Abraham - Stephen Harper

You know, it’s hard for some people to grasp the biblical truth that no one gets to heaven by anything that they do. Good works or a pious life can never atone for sins. Not one. It can be a hard pill to swallow. If you read Romans chapter 4, you will read about Abraham who was justified by faith alone. He believed God, and God counted it to him for righteousness. There was nothing that he could do. He simply trusted in the promises of God. Do you?

The prophet, Isaiah, over 750 years before the birth of Christ, foretold the Saviour who would come and what would happen to Him. He would be rejected and despised. He would be crucified. He would carry our sorrows. He would bare our iniquities. Isaiah asked a probing question, “Who has believed this report?” The same question can be asked today whenever the gospel is preached.

Saved by Grace - Marvin Derksen

Isn’t it a wonderful thing that the most powerful, most awesome God of the universe is a God of grace? How dreadful it would be if He were a tyrant God or simply one who didn’t care much about us or what is going on in our world. No, He is intimately involved with every detail of our lives and infinitely concerned about our destinies. As sinners, we could never draw close to God. We could never enter His kingdom or live in heaven with Him. But God has extended His hand of love and grace to us all. The ultimate expression of this was the giving of His Son to take the place of guilty sinners in order to save us. Yes, though we have sinned, God is FOR us. And He has taken the first step to reconciling us to Himself.

Where to Find Rest - Shad Kember Jr.

One of the most gracious invitations given by the Saviour to poor sinners is this, “Come unto Me, all ye who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). What a weary and laden down world we live in! So much unrest and fear. So much covert frustration and anger because of the failure to have our greatest needs satisfied. Our  spiritual needs. We need peace and rest in our souls, yet we persist in our tiresome search in places that cannot deliver, not realizing what the problem really is. We are disconnected from the source of all true joy and satisfaction. We are disconnected from God! Listen to this message about this beautiful verse and what God is offering in Christ.

The Folly of Waiting - Brody Thibodeau

One of the most important things that listeners have to remember when they consider the gospel is its utmost urgency. The Lord Jesus Christ exhorted His hearers to seek FIRST the kingdom of God. To strive to enter in. Not to count on the fact that tomorrow will always come. The gospel is not just something to sit back and consider at a later time, but something to act on. Now is the day of salvation.

The Resurrection - Truth or Conspiracy - Sandy Higgins

Airtime: April 7-0, 2023Message Title: The Resurrection, Truth or Conspiracy rerunSpeaker: Sandy Higgins The topic of the resurrection is the foundation of the Christian faith, so it comes as no surprise that it is the doctrine that has been attacked most by atheists and other unbelievers down through the ages. Yet, the four gospels carefully preserve the details of the crucifixion and resurrection story. We trust that this message will help you to understand the gospel accounts more fully and that, if not saved, you would solemnly realize the implications of a risen Saviour and His claims upon YOUR life.

Remember Jesus Christ - Matthew Cain

The apostle Paul in 2 Timothy 2:8 urges us to “remember Jesus Christ” – who He was and what He has done. That He is unique in His birth, in His descent, and in His death. And not only that, but in His victory over the grave in being raised from the dead. Why is it so important that we remember these things? Well, it makes us think of how special He was. The sinless One. God incarnate. This should bring worship to the hearts of those who love Him. And it should bring terror to those who have rejected and crucified Him. We would all do good to remember this great One, this holy One.

Gospel Clarifications - Shad Kember Jr.

When people come to hear the gospel message, they often bring with them their own pre-conceived notions of what it is all about. They may realize that they have a need because of their sin, which is very important, but then contribute their own ideas as to how to get rid of their sins. Some depend on their good deeds; others on religious observances such as baptism or communion. Still others on their background, their church affiliation, or even their sincerity. But there is no support in the Bible for any of these methods. In today’s broadcast, we will look at some of the many verses in the Bible that make clear for us GOD’s way of salvation.

She met the One who had living water, the Saviour who met her deepest need. But it didn’t stop there.

Behold the Lamb - Dan Shutt

When John the Baptist pointed to the Lamb of God and cried, “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!”, there was no question as to who he was talking about. There stood before all the people a unique and sinless man who, by baptism, identified Himself with the rebellious nation of Israel, indeed the whole world. He came to stand in the place of sinners. He was God’s great solution to the universal problem of sin. And He was willing and able to be the Lamb, the perfect offering to satisfy the justice and righteousness of God.  Have you taken this Lamb of God as your own? You need to.

Finished - Brody Thibodeau

Today’s message looks closely at one of the Lord’s sayings on the cross. It is maybe the one of most significance to perishing sinners. The words, “It is finished” or one word in the Greek – “finished”. How this word has been a balm to troubled souls down through the years since that day at Calvary! What did it mean? Well, the depth of this utterance will probably never be fully known. For, you see, it was one of infinite victory! Christ’s  promises had been kept. The prophecies had been fulfilled. Satan had been crushed. Sin had been paid for. Death had been defeated. God had been satisfied. How profound was that cry from Calvary! Listen to our message today, and ask yourself, “What does that word mean to ME?”

What Will You Do With Jesus? - Peter Ramsay

 A large part of the gospel is concerned with just one event in Jesus’ life – His arrest, trial, and crucifixion. Why? Well, it’s the very reason He came - to die for our sins! God wants us to direct our focus to exactly what happened on the day that He accomplished this great work. Many people made choices for or against Christ that day, but our message this evening is concerned with the decision and response of one particular individual, Pontius Pilate. He had to make a decision about what to do with Jesus. And so do we!

The Eternal God - Eugene Higgins

We will never know all there is to know about the Almighty God of heaven. His essence is eternal. His character is far beyond what we can even hope to understand. But we can be thankful that this same God has allowed us to know Him by revealing Himself to us through the Bible. That’s why it’s so important to read this Book. Also, Christ has made the invisible God visible. We see the nature of God in Him.

At Anchorpoint our desire is for all our listeners to understand the great truths of the Gospel message, and about the Person who makes the good news possible – the Lord Jesus Christ.

We hope that our listeners will respond to the truth in repentance and faith and come to know the Lord Jesus as their own and personal Saviour.

The Sinless Sin-Bearer - Matthew Cain

This week’s broadcast focuses on the Man of Calvary. On the cross hung a unique Man in every sense of the word. He was perfect in every aspect of His life. Indeed, He was actually God manifested in the flesh. It’s a weighty mystery that the Bible does not attempt to explain. It states it as reality. He was sinless in thought, word, and deed. Yet He was willing to take on the sin of the entire world. He is the Yes, Christians will forever rejoice in the sinlessness of Christ and in the fact that one day we will be free from sin as well. And we can also rejoice in the fact that all our sins were borne by our sinless substitute on the cross. What about you?

The Christian's Boast - Dan Shutt

You know, if we sat at the foot of the cross long enough, we would have to come away greatly humbled – with absolutely nothing to boast about in ourselves. In fact, we would come away ashamed and convicted of the wretched creatures that we really are to crucify the Lord of life and glory. The apostle Paul never forgot his view of the cross. He said, “God forbid” that he would have an ounce of boasting or pride in his veins again. When it comes to salvation, it is only Christ who is to be “lifted up” as it were. His cross was the place of suffering, the place of substitution, the place of God’s entire satisfaction, and the place of eternal salvation. There is absolutely nothing there of ourselves that we can boast about.

But God had His eye on this jailor long before that morning dawned. It was no accident that he came into contact with them that evening. God deals with individuals and often re-arranges their circumstances in such a way that they are made to think of their soul’s salvation?

The Lord is actually the Good Shepherd – the One who loves His sheep whom He diligently cares for and tenderly carries.

Biblical faith is simply this – believing in what God says and committing yourself to it. It is based on evidence that backs up that faith. You can rest on it. Is God trustworthy? Can you depend on what He has said in His Word? In this week’s broadcast we will look at the requirements of faith, the realities of faith in action, and the response of faith. This is no blind leap.

Those who trust Christ are saved and enter heaven through His blood, but those who refuse to receive God's forgiveness must be banished from the holy presence of God forever.

Impossible Certainties - Marvin Derksen

There is nothing relative about the Word of God. It is filled with timeless, unchanging, absolute truths. Sometimes it is this very inflexibility in scriptural statements that makes individuals uncomfortable with or even hostile to the Bible’s message. But there are some things in the Word of God that are absolute impossibilities. Even in relation to God. Did you know that there are some things that God CANNOT do? For one, He cannot lie. He also can never change. Some of these impossibilities are difficult for us to accept – like the impossibility of ever saving ourselves, of ever making ourselves any better in the sight of God. However, other impossibilities are wonderfully comforting – like the fact that God will never, no never, turn away anyone who comes to Him in repentance and faith.

The Gospel of John, chapter 9, is entirely dedicated to the story of one poor blind man and his encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ. It was one of the “sign” miracles that the apostle John included in his gospel – miracles that displayed the glory of God in Christ. This man was blind from birth and would never be able to see apart from divine intervention. How similar to this is our own condition. We are also blind from birth as far as the spiritual dimension is concerned. In our natural condition, we are not able to see and appreciate Christ for Who He is. Nor do we rightly understand our own standing before God as sinners. Our message this week looks into the circumstances of this man’s story and how it applies to us even today.

The Rapture - Where Did All the Christians Go? Part 2 - Eugene Higgins

Conditions in our world today appear to be setting the final stage for the great event known as the rapture of the church or the return of Christ. He came to this earth the first time as a man in order to die for sin - to provide salvation for fallen mankind. He will come the second time to call His loved ones home. We should all ask ourselves the question, "Will I go to be with the Lord when He returns? Or will I be left here with all hope of salvation gone?"

The Rapture - Where Did All the Christians Go? Part 1 - Eugene Higgins

The rapture of the church is a Bible truth that you probably haven't heard much about, even though it was strongly believed and faithfully taught by the early Christian church. The Lord Jesus Christ, before He went back to heaven, promised His followers that He would return again. He didn't say WHEN, but He DID say how. The apostle Paul explains how that Christ will return from heaven and all those who have believed on Him down though the ages, both living and dead, will rise to meet Him in the air to be forever with Him in His heavenly home. The Bible calls it the 'blessed hope'. You see it's a wonderful prospect for believers, but a tragic one for those who have chosen to reject Christ. They will be left behind to face the Great Tribulation here on earth and the final judgment of God in a future day. The question is “Will you be ready?”

Repent and Believe - Jack Hay

The mere knowledge of the Gospel message is not salvation. The Lord Jesus Christ made it clear that we need to do more with the Gospel than listen and superficially agree. He said that we need to repent – to change our minds about ourselves and about God. This week's broadcast examines the scriptural meaning of repentance and faith. We trust it will help you to truly repent of your sins and place your faith in the God who longs to save you.

Questions from Job - David Petterson

And did you know that Lord Jesus Christ himself answers these questions?

The Mystery of the Manger - Marvin Derksen

Today’s message focuses our attention on the baby in Bethlehem’s manger and the staggering mystery of the incarnation. Why did He come – the babe in the manger? Well, for revelation – to show us the character of God in all His beauty and glory; for redemption – to put away our sins by the sacrifice of Himself; and for relationship – to invite you to trust Him and come into His family. We hope that what you hear will open your heart to the marvellous truth of God walking with men and His wonderful love for sinners.

The Wonder of His Name - Marvin Derksen

Christians love to sing about Jesus. Why is this? Because we love Him, of course! And that Name contains all of what God IS and what a poor sinner needs. In Isaiah 9:6 we read, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His Name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the Mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.” Our message this week looks at this beautiful verse in depth, uncovering just a little of the wealth of meaning in that Name!

Christ our Kinsman Redeemer - Frank Sona

Our message today could well be called the Gospel of Ruth, as this Old Testament book not only tells a captivating story of love and loss but also gives us a wonderful illustration of the tender dealings of God with sinners and His plan for their redemption – the good news of the gospel, if you will. For in this story, we have a needy soul - an outcast really – and how God moved in a miraculous way to meet her need. Like Ruth, we also have no resources to commend ourselves to God, but we also can be redeemed – saved - by the ‘mighty man of wealth’, the great Redeemer, our Lord Jesus Christ!

Set Free - Larry Perkins

Apart from almost being an archaic word these days, the word 'sin' is tremendously misunderstood. First of all, most people dislike the use of the word, but redefining 'sin' will never get rid of its existence and its effects in our lives. The Bible says that all sin is disobedience and rebellion against God. It is missing the mark as to God's standard and intention for mankind. But sin is something more. It is slavery. Christ has bought us back out of slavery and misery. He willingly paid the price to buy us from the slave market of sin, so to speak. So, how about it? Has there ever been a time in your life when you were redeemed by the blood of the Lamb? You need to be.

You and Your God - Peter Ramsay

You know, the gospel message is not complicated. We have a righteous God who created us and who loves us. Why is it then that we don’t know this God – can’t connect with Him? Why are we miserable and hopeless and messed up? Well, the reason is simple. This righteous God is very much offended at the kind of behaviour we display as we live the lives He has given us. Our willful rebellion, our ingratitude, our pride, our wicked ways, our selfishness … and so much more. These attitudes and behaviours are what God calls SIN. And it is SIN that has separated us from Him. But the offended has found a way to pardon the offender. And it’s all because of grace! Let’s hear what the Bible says about God’s plan of salvation.

The Focus of the Gospel - Matthew Cain

Who is the focus of the gospel? Christ of course! Often, we look at ourselves - or others. We look at our own understanding of what God requires or we get taken up with peripheral topics and theological issues. But God wants to direct our gaze to what is central to HIM – His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ who came into the world to save sinners. First, as the offspring of the woman. That is, He had no earthly father, not inheriting Adam’s sin as we all do. He was the sinless Son of God. Second, He was the offspring of Abraham and, as such, was the one through whom ALL the world would be blessed. He is the universal Saviour! Also, He was the offspring of David; that is, the everlasting King who will reign over every person who ever lived. All will bow the knee to Him and confess that He is Lord. We hope that you have your focus turned to Christ today.

True Conversion - Brody Thibodeau

Jesus Christ made it very clear that a person needed to be born again to have a relationship with God. We all had a physical birth, but we need a spiritual birth to enter into the realm of heaven where God is. The most famous conversation in the Bible about the new birth is the talk that Jesus had with a teacher of the Jews, Nicodemus. Jesus said, “You must be born again.” This week’s message takes up three basic and vital elements in any true conversion story – that is, for a person who has been born again

An Unlikely Cure - Stephen Harper

Many still believe that God is against them and it’s easy for them to grumble and complain about their circumstances even when God had been good to them over and over again. This is exactly what the children of Israel did on their journey to the promised land so many years ago. For this ingratitude, God had venomous snakes invade the camp and many people were bitten; many died.  But when they cried out for mercy, the Lord presented Moses with an unlikely remedy for their problem – he made a bronze serpent, placed it on a pole and showed it to all the people. Whoever looked at it was healed! This is a beautiful illustration of God’s way of salvation for us today.

Jesus is Coming Again - Jim Jarvis

The Bible is God's wonderful message to mankind, telling of a Saviour who has come to take away sin and bring us back to God.  How tremendous the gospel message is! But there is more! You see, this same Jesus who rose from the dead and ascended into heaven is coming back again. Just as He left! In bodily form. He is coming back to receive the church living on earth - those who trusted in Him for salvation. The dead in Christ will arise followed by all those living who have been born again - who accepted Him as their own, personal Saviour. The Bible teaches that this great event could happen at any time, though nowhere in scripture does it give a specific date.  Are you ready to meet Him?

So Far - Eugene Higgins

We need to look at our lives as God does - as totally devastated by the ravages of sin in our hearts.  Does that sound extreme?  Maybe, but we would do well to consider sin as what the Bible defines it to be in all its ugliness. In response to our enormous problem of sin, God was willing to go the extreme distance to meet our need.  Christ came to bridge the immeasurable distance that separates us from God.  And He came SO FAR to do this!

Atheism and Romans 1 - Michael Penfold

Many atheists today have launched an all-out attack on the truths of the Bible and the very foundations upon which it is based. Scriptural truth has always been assailed down through the ages - and the Bible itself speaks of the forms of unbelief we can expect. Today’s message looks at the atheistic attitudes of today and compares them to what we read in Romans Chapter 1- and the parallels are astounding!

No Difference - Phil Coulson

This week’s message is a comparison of the atheistic attitudes of today and what we read in Romans Chapter 1. Mankind's unbelieving response to truth is revealed in all its fullness there. Despite 24/7 revelation from God, people still choose to reject it, suppress it, or change it into something else. There's more to the statement, "I don't believe there is a God" than meets the eye. It's more than an intellectual difficulty - the will is very much involved. In fact, despite all these atheistic arguments, God makes one pronouncement - they are without excuse. The evidence is there for all to see and investigate. We trust that today's message will start you on a quest for truth - Biblical truth - and that you will discover the Lord himself who longs for you to come into a saving relationship with Him.

What Shall It Profit a Man? - Marvin Derksen

What is the most valuable thing in the whole world to you? Well, the Lord Jesus Christ gives us a heavenly perspective on this question. And He wants us to imagine for a moment that we own the whole world. Now that would be quite a thing, wouldn't it? To own the whole world and have everything at our disposal! Yet, there is something far greater in value. Listen to His question tonight, “What will it profit you, if you gain the whole world, and lose your own soul?" Yes, He considers your soul to be the most precious possession you have. Do you?

Burdens are Lifted at Calvary - Bill Seale

If we asked you “Where are your sins?”, what would your answer be? Surely, you wouldn’t respond that you don’t have any sins. God says we all do – and if you’re honest, you would have to agree – totally. The Bible is clear on this description of us. And sins become heavier as time goes on – they accumulate, they get entangled.  They make life complicated and messed up. What burdens they are! How can we ever get rid of them? Today’s message looks at the picture of sin in our lives as a heavy burden and the need to have that burden removed. Are you tired of carrying around this burden? Then, come to the Saviour. God had laid on Him the iniquity of us all!

We hope that it will – because it is the central focus of the Bible. The cross is why Christ came.

Do You Believe God's Report? - Gaius Goff

The gospel message is basically the retelling of a report that God has given to man - a report concerning His way of salvation. It's not a list of do's and don'ts or of a set of beliefs and practices you must follow to become a member of a church group. His report is given throughout the entire Bible, beginning long ago with the prophets, right up to the time of Christ and beyond with the writings of His followers in the New Testament. And it's a report that must be received. God wants you to believe what He has written. Isaiah Chapter 53 begins with this question - "Who has believed our report? And to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?" That is, God is asking the question - Who really believes what I'm saying here? You see, God has given us the facts - about our sin - and about His remedy for it. Are you going to believe it?

The Origin of the Gospel, Part 2 - Michael Penfold

It's amazing how the prominent atheists of our day are trying to promote the idea that faith means believing without evidence - just a leap in the dark, as it were. This is categorically false when it comes to biblical faith. Christianity is based on solid, eye-witness testimony of individuals who were in direct contact with Jesus Christ. And the gospel writers put their experiences on paper for the very purpose of providing historical FACTS upon which we can base our faith. Biblical faith is grounded on evidence - not fantasy, myth, or wishful thinking. We hope that you won't fall for this false conception of faith that atheists would have you to believe.

Justification - Bill Seale

Anyone who is familiar with the Bible at all will discover almost immediately that mankind has a problem. God makes this very clear from beginning to end. We are broken and damaged - unable to meet up to our own standards, let alone the standards of God. And since God hates sin, since no sin can enter into His presence, that leaves us with a very serious problem indeed. Is it possible to have our guilty record made clean? From start to finish? Is it really possible to have ALL our sins forgiven? A clean slate, as it were? Yes! It's called justification - and it's the topic of today's broadcast.

It's a question of paramount importance. It's the biggest question you will ever answer in your lifetime. And it's a question that you cannot avoid. "What shall I do with Jesus, who is called Christ?" In today's broadcast, we will hear how two Biblical characters ultimately answered that question - and how tragic their answers were! We have Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor. And we have Judas Iscariot, a supposed disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ. Both decided they wanted something else.

Salvation by Faith - Gaius Goff

The foundational difference between Christianity and all other world religions is the fact that the restoration of man's relationship with God is based entirely on God - not in any way dependent on who we are or what we can do. We cannot get right with God by doing good works of our own nor by a cooperative effort between ourselves and God. Religions and spiritual philosophies require us to work at it, to offer something of ourselves. This is not what the Word of God tells us. No, Christ came to pay our debt when we were bankrupt in our sins. God makes it clear that "By grace are you saved through faith." Faith is the means by which we can avail ourselves of God's wonderful gift of eternal life. Simply taking God at His Word.

It has often been called the 'gospel in a nutshell' because through it a person can know all the elements of the gospel message. Today we will be looking specifically at this wondrous verse.

Coming to Christ - Gaius Goff

The gospel message is not complicated. It is God's offer of grace to sinners who don't deserve it. It's a simple extension of pardon to anyone willing to accept the guilty verdict and come and receive it. Why is it then that multitudes are not lined up at the door wanting to get it. The answer is simple. Most people don't take God seriously when He says that we need salvation. They also think that there is something that they can do. The gospel message is that you need to have your sins forgiven and that God has provided the means to do that.

How foolish it is to trade eternal life for one fleeting thing that you may hold so dearly today.

Jesus said the man became angry and sent his servants out to bring in other people to his banquet instead. Well, His point was simple. The gospel message goes out to all – but then the refusals come in - excuses that will not hold up when placed before God. You see, God has also prepared a tremendous banquet as it were - filled with good things – eternal life, the forgiveness of sins, a life with Christ, peace, purpose, endless fulfillment and joy – to name a few! We hope that you will not come up with excuses for rejecting the call of God for salvation.

When I See the Blood - Stephen Harper

Many people know something of the Exodus story in the Bible – the story about how God delivered the Israelites from slavery by visiting Egypt with ten formidable plagues, the last of which was the death of the first born of all those who refused to obey the Lord’s instructions. But God told the Israelites to slay a lamb, a perfect lamb, and to put the blood on the lintel and side posts of the door to their houses. God told them that when He “saw the blood, He would pass over them” – meaning that they would be protected from the last terrible plague. Who is the Lamb? John the Baptist tells us, “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” It is the Lord Jesus Christ himself.

The first verse of Isaiah 53 asks a similar question – “Who has believed our report?” That is, many people hear God’s report of His Son – the gospel message of how Christ died for their sins – but don’t believe it. Has Christ ever done anything for them? In unbelief, they would likely answer “No”. And they are wrong. The Lord Jesus was willing to go all the way to the cross for sinners. But all of Christ’s work would be to no avail if He is not received personally as Lord and Saviour. So ask yourself again, “Has Christ ever done anything for me”?

Christ Can Give You Eternal Life - Frank Sona

The Bible tells us in no uncertain terms that we were all born sinners, spiritually disconnected from God because of sin. We start out spiritually dead – with low thoughts about God and high thoughts about ourselves. Since our lives are infected by sin we end up with broken relationships, self-destructive behaviour, sinful habits, bitterness, and confusion as to what life is all about anyway. The good news of the gospel is that the Lord Jesus Christ came into the world to remedy this dire situation by taking care of the root cause of all our problems – sin. As the sinless substitute, He was able to bear our sins and put them away, bridging the broken connection with God again.

The Empty Tomb - Marvin Derksen

It is hard to enter in to the devastation felt by Jesus’ disciples when they watched Him being taken, crucified, and left to die. All their hopes were completely dashed. They had trusted in Him as the long-awaited Messiah – and yet He died seemingly helpless upon a Roman cross. The Lord Jesus had told them that it would happen – it was why He came - but they just couldn’t take it in. So now, their world crashed in upon them. All hope was gone! What a desperate Saturday it must have been for them! But WE know the end of the story – or the beginning really – that Christ would rise again in the power of an endless life and share that life with all who trusted Him with their souls. Yes, the truth of Easter brings hope and new life to all who believe in Christ for their salvation.

There are many Bible stories about how the Lord Jesus Christ healed the sick and dying. He was known as the “Great Physician” whose compassion and healing power attracted multitudes of sad and afflicted people.

For example, John 3:16 - "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." But there are two amazing truths in this one verse - that God SO loved the world and that God actually GAVE His only Son. What a statement!

The Authority of the Bible - Part 2 - Sandy Higgins

On what basis can we hold the Bible as the authority in all aspects of our lives in the twenty-first century? This week’s message continues to examine the concept of Biblical inspiration and the manner of God's revelation to us. After all, we would understand nothing about God unless He reveals His mind to us. This He does through the solid foundation of Biblical teaching and the instrumentality of inspired writers. But the ultimate authority and power standing behind the Word of God is the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. His claims and prophecies were backed up by His tremendous power over death. Yes, the resurrection of Christ gives the iron clad stamp of approval by God Himself that the words He spoke and the scriptures He referred to were undisputedly authoritative.

The Authority of the Bible - Part 1 - Sandy Higgins

The Bible has always been under attack by unbelievers down through the ages. In fact, The Word of God and the authority of Christ himself was openly questioned by skeptics long ago. The human heart hasn't changed, and there still is a resistance to accepting what God has to say about people and about His Son. How is it that we can depend on the Bible's message for us today? Where does this authority come from? On what basis does the Bible claim our attention and allegiance? We trust that these insights will be helpful in settling the Bible as a foundation in YOUR life.

A Change of Mind - Larry Perkins

The problem with understanding the Bible for just about all of us is that we all come to the Bible with our OWN way of thinking. We've already decided what God is like and what we are like. Unfortunately, it is usually a very wrong assessment. In the gospel of Luke, Chapter 15 the Lord Jesus Christ tells a story that we know now as 'the prodigal son'. But there is more to the story than the son who left home for a far country and later returned to his father. You see, the Lord Jesus was telling the story to a group of self-righteous Pharisees.  Yes, the prodigal son certainly needed forgiveness all right, but so did the religious congregation. You see, they ALL needed a 'change of mind'. They needed to look at reality the way that God reveals it to us in His Word. And so do we!

The Lost is Found - Peter Ramsay

The Bible is filled with accounts of individuals who actually had one-on-one dealings with the God of heaven. There are many of these fortunate individuals whose experiences with the Lord Jesus Christ were recorded for us in the New Testament. Today's message is about one of these tremendous experiences in the gospel of Luke, chapter 19. It may be a familiar story to you - the story of Zaccheus - a hated person in his community of Jericho - a tax collector and a cheat. Would Jesus have dealings with a person like that? You bet He would!

No Other God - David Hierlihy

God has made it clear and plain in the Bible that He is the only God there is. It is hard to be more emphatic. He says it more than once: "I am God and there is none else". And what kind of a God is He? Well, the Bible says that He is a just God and a Saviour. He does only what is right and just. That is a tremendous thing - but a fearful one as well. Why? Well, we are 'unjust' - sinners - people who have turned our back on God and gone our own way. Justice requires that we face our sentence of condemnation. But God also proclaims the sinner just who believes in Christ for salvation. And the remedy is simple - "Look unto Me and be ye saved." He has done it all. Isn't that wonderful?

Saved from Condemnation - Dan Shutt

One of the most well-known verses in the Bible - and you may know it - is John 3:16 – “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life.” A beautiful verse - the gospel in a nutshell. Well, today's message is based on the verse following John 3:16 - and here's how it reads, "For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved." An equally beautiful verse, don't you think?  But does this verse mean that we are not condemned? No. The world is already lying under total condemnation by God because of our sin. That’s why the Saviour came. Have YOU ever acknowledged this fact?

The Gospel - Gaius Goff

It's a common mistake for many people to think that there is something they have to DO to gain acceptance with God. An individual may rightly begin to realize a sense of need in their own soul - a need to have matters settled with God - a need to have their sins forgiven. Maybe you're at Anchorpoint today with a desire to have the salvation that the Bible speaks of. Or maybe, you are merely curious about these things. Either way, we're glad you've tuned in because today's broadcast will have many of the answers you're looking for.

Wise Men Still Seek Him - Marvin Derksen

Who doesn’t like the old, familiar hymn with the catchy tune “We Three Kings of Orient are”? It conjures up images of bejewelled noblemen riding on stately ornamented camels, each with a gift in their hands. Well, the real story from the Bible is a lot different from that. Yes, there were “wise men” or magi that actually made that arduous journey in search for a King, a Messiah. But their quest was for something far deeper than to see the latest heir to the throne. They had heart longings to personally meet the Saviour promised by God. It was worth it for them to leave their homes and head off in long, hard journey until they found Him. And find Him they did! What a joyous day it was for these men! Those that stayed behind in unbelief missed the greatest discovery of their lives! And how many are doing the same today?

The Gospel According to Angels - Marvin Derksen

We can become so familiar with the Christmas story that we lose the awesome wonder of that day! And so many people miss the message completely - a message brought to us from heaven by angels no less! Tremendous news of a Saviour given “unto US”! Why would God even do this for sinners who hated and rejected Him? And who still do! Well, the only reason is in God’s great heart of love for sinners like us. Yes, this gospel message of good will to mankind came from the lips of angels. We would do well to give it our utmost attention, don’t you think?

Those who have placed their faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as their own personal Saviour. Are YOU a believer in Christ? Have YOU thought about His return today? It's a blessed prospect, and though the Bible does not give any date for this great event, we know that it could happen at any time. Is the prospect of the Lord's return a blessed one for you?

Why Evil in the World? - Eugene Higgins

I don’t have to tell you that we live in a wicked world. One that is harsh, hazardous, and unfair. Some would ask, “Why is there evil anyway? Where did it come from? Why doesn’t God do something about it? Why is there evil anyway, if God really exists?” Well, these are good questions, and the Bible has the answers. Are you ready to listen to them?

One Thing - Stephen Vance

You know, the Lord doesn't require a lot from any one of us. In fact, He would like us to know just ONE thing. One thing. Sadly, many people don't know even this one thing. In fact, when people hear the clear truth of the gospel - that we are sinners and have offended God, that we need to acknowledge this and turn from our sin and trust Christ to save us, they come up with MANY, MANY things they feel they need to know and do. In fact, they often construct their own 'religion' with rules and methods to follow. But the gospel is the opposite of working at it. It is the opposite of DOING. The gospel message is all about what CHRIST has done for us. Do you know the ONE thing that God wants you to know?

Christ Crucified - Stephen Harper

You know, in our world of sickness and sorrow, the gospel message of peace and hope stands out like a diamond against a dark background of despair. And not just the message, but the theme of that message - the Lord Jesus Christ. There was no one who ever sympathized so much with sinful mankind - no one who ever cared for us personally and individually - no one who ever stepped in to bare our griefs and our sorrows. And certainly no one who ever came to bare our sins and prepare for us a home in heaven. It’s a mystery why so many people reject this glorious Saviour! Have you bowed the knee to Him? Some day you will. Why not now? Don’t make the tragic choice of the unbeliever and live to regret forever the loss of your precious soul.

Now is the Day of Salvation - Peter Ramsay

Many people are already aware of what the Gospel message is all about. Some may have heard it for years, starting as children in Sunday School. They know all about the problem of sin in our lives, the plague that it has been on mankind, and its destructive effects on people. They may know how Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, how that He went to the cross to suffer for sins as a substitute for guilty sinners. And many know that by trusting Christ they can receive the forgiveness of sins and peace with God. Well, that would be wonderful if they possess all this knowledge. But the question remains, “Have they come to Christ for salvation?” The gospel call is an urgent one. It’s not one to consider later on down the road. The Bible says that NOW is the day of God’s grace. Not tomorrow. What are you waiting for?

Yes, they are talking about the Lord Jesus Christ who gave Himself for our sins in order to deliver us from the bondage and terrible consequences of sin; who gave Himself to redeem us from all iniquity (that is, to buy us back from the awful shame and wretchedness of our sin); and who gave Himself out of love to every individual who trusts Him in order to save them from hell and destruction. Wonderful verses, don't you think? Listen along as Mr. Goff explains them to us in our message today.

Well, certainly we cannot stand in God's presence the way we are, and certainly heaven is NOT open for unprepared sinners. But the gospel message really comes to us from God's view - not ours - and He has made mankind an offer of forgiveness. What an extravagant display of love and grace! Have you ever said ‘Thank you’?

Four Outstanding Days - Marvin Derksen

The Bible is a book of history, outlining sequences of events in the order that they happened to make up a narrative that can be understood, examined and verified. Various times, events, and experiences that scholars have both studied and relied upon for centuries are recorded with amazing accuracy. Often, the writers specified actual ‘days’ in which different, important events happened, and there is much to learn as we read through the accounts of what actually transpired on those days and how they affect us even today. This message looks at four outstanding days as described by the Apostle Luke in his gospel. This can be a day of opportunity for you – a day when you listen to the Word of God and believe it - a day when you can trust the Saviour once and for all for the salvation of your soul. In the perilous times that we are living in, don’t you think that would be the wise thing to do? Today?

The Wrath of God - Phil Coulson

Today’s message is focused on a topic that is not spoken about much in churches these days – the wrath of God. Yes, the wrath of God. You might be surprised by what the Bible teaches about it. Make no mistake though – God is a God of love. In fact, God IS love. But really, both characteristics go together. The solemn truth is that God’s wrath is not only future, but we experience its affects in our lives already. John 3:36 says that it ‘abides’ on unbelievers. But this great Bible chapter also gives us the truth of how God is holding back His wrath and wants to show his love for us – “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life.” We hope that you take today’s message very seriously and will turn to God’s great provision for sin – the Lord Jesus Christ.

Saving Faith - Gaius Goff

What a tremendous amount of confusion surrounds the use of the term 'faith.' Many people look at faith as a concept that comes up only in religious discussions. They forget or don't realize that they exercise faith every day of their lives - in people and things around them. Some are even proud of their faith, claiming to have 'great faith' and relying on it to get them to heaven. They forget that even great faith in an unreliable object is very foolhardy indeed. Skeptics even contrast faith with reason, teaching that faith is only necessary when there is nothing to support it. How totally wrong this is! And how contrary to evidence-based Biblical faith! This week’s message looks at the faith in three well-known Bible characters - Noah, Moses, and Abraham, and how it relates to the qualities of 'saving faith' that we all need - the kind of trust and reliance on God that truly saves the soul. Do you have it?

Heaven and How to Get There - John Fleck

Sadly, many have the misconception that heaven is basically a place that caters to their unfulfilled wishes in THIS life - kind of a place where we can forever hang out with our friends enjoying some kind of eternal party. While heaven is indeed a real place and it IS forever, people do not realize that it is characterized by holiness and the complete absence of sin - a place where the will of God is foremost and the worship of God is paramount. Sound like a place where you'd like to go? Not likely, if you are still living under the power of sin in your own life. It is through Christ alone that sinners can be saved and fitted for heaven. So, are YOU sure of being in heaven? You can be!

In today’s prevailing atmosphere of virtual experiences, cyber games, and online relationships, it’s becoming harder to get people to face life’s true realities. Realities that are not always easy to accept. People will often prefer to deny the hard facts of life. We want you to know that not all of reality is doom and gloom.

It’s a story of intrigue, treachery, and injustice. But it’s also a story of love, devotion, and forgiveness. If you haven’t read it, then pick up the Bible and start reading at Genesis 37.

Silent Lips - Peter Ramsay

God’s salvation is not a complicated process. In fact, it’s not a process at all. It happens in a moment of time. But the basic and vital ingredient is the acknowledgment on the part of the sinner of his lost position before God. There must be the confession of guilt and helplessness to save ourselves. It is not Christ PLUS what we can do. It must be Christ alone. Our mouths ‘must be stopped’. Cast away any thought of your own goodness or of saving yourself. Only Christ’s work will be accepted of God. Trust Him as your own personal Saviour today – and go on your way with a new song in your heart.

Be Ye Reconciled to God - Matthew Cain

The Bible makes it clear to us that we have ALL transgressed the right ways of God. We are not naturally on good terms with Him. Not that it is ever GOD'S fault. WE are the ones who have moved away from God's laws. Because of this, the Bible commands us to 'be reconciled to God' - to have our differences cleared away - to make everything right between us and God. But how can we do that? Through the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ. Full and free for all who believe! We hope that you will accept God's free offer of reconciliation as you listen to our message today.

Is It Nothing to You? - Marvin Derksen

In the book of Lamentations, Chapter 1 and verse 12 we read these poignant words prophetically spoken in reference to the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary. “Is it nothing to you which pass by?” What a pitiful cry from the suffering Saviour! There is almost a sense of disbelief in the question. How could anyone possibly pass by and not be affected by the scene before them? Yet, sadly, in its fulfillment, that is exactly what men and women did. But what about today? Have you been passing by the cross so far in your experience? If so, it’s high time you stopped and considered what happened there.

Points to Ponder - Shawn St. Clair

Who could ever plumb the depths of the words and thoughts of God Almighty? Yet, God has presented His Word to us in such a way that we are able to understand the simple truths necessary to be right with Him. For example, in the book of Psalms He has placed several markers (by using the term ‘selah’) to help us realize that we should stop and think over what we have just read. Yes, God doesn’t want us to miss some important truths. Today’s message looks at some places in scripture where these ‘full stops’ occur and how it applies to us as readers today.

There was great violence on the earth and men seemed to do whatever pleased them taking no thought of the righteousness of God. What an awful place it must have been - something similar to our world today. But it’s an amazing fact that Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. And grace is exactly what we need as well!

Does this sound like a very strange statement to you? What did Christ mean? Well, it is certainly very important for us to know what it means because He is presenting us with an imperative that will decide whether or not we can go to heaven! He gives a very specific qualification - we need to become like little children in order to go to heaven. How can this be?

Well, it's really not hard to see problems, hardships, and sadness everywhere in our world today at least from a Biblical view. It is sin. Yes, an out-dated word to many - but call it by any other name, its ugly character still remains, and it seriously affects every aspect of our lives.

One of the primary differences between a man-made religion and the gospel of the grace of God is in one simple word – done. You see the work of salvation has already been provided in the death of Christ on the cross of Calvary. It is “through Him” alone that we can be saved. Today’s gospel message takes a look at the basics of the gospel message – the sin problem, a holy God, the need for all of us to acknowledge and repent of our sin, and the forgiveness offered by God Himself in sending Christ to pay the great debt that we could never pay. ‘Through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins.’ It’s a wonderful message that we hope will help you understand God’s way of salvation.

Works Don't Work - Jon Procopio

One of the biggest problems in gospel preaching is for people to get what God is trying to tell them - they are sinners and their 'good' works are unable to get them one step closer to heaven. God can never compromise His standard of righteousness. There is only one who ever lived who pleased God in all respects - One who was as perfect as God Himself. Yes, it was the Lord Jesus Christ. As the sinless substitute, He alone was able to bring us poor sinners back to God. What a wonderful truth is this!

Without Christ in the World - Jack Hay

The life story of every Christian can be divided into 3 separate time periods.The first one is the time of life spent ‘WITHOUT Christ’. We all arrived into the world as sinners, and as such, separated from God - without God and without hope in the world. What a sad condition indeed! But, after we acknowledge our sin and trust Christ, the Bible describes us as ‘IN Christ’. And what a glorious truth this is! We are seen by God as if we had never sinned – we stand before God in the righteousness of Christ Himself. And it is during this time that we are able to live our lives for His glory, enjoying His presence along the way. And finally, the third section is ‘WITH Christ’. That is, we have a secure future in heaven and will be experience the joys of Christ forever. How wonderful is that?

We hope that you will too. So, how about it? Have you ever been born again?

Everyone who ever met the Lord Jesus Christ is never the same again. Either they moved away from Him with the knowledge that they had rejected Him, or they believed His message and received from Him the gift of God’s salvation. Yes, coming into contact with Christ is a pivotal point in a person’s life. Our messages here on Anchorpoint are given for just this reason – so that you may have a “life changing encounter”.

There are so many voices that clamour to be heard these days as we experience a worldwide pandemic. It can be both overwhelming and confusing. But we would like you to know that today’s message on Anchorpoint will not be changed into a different one tomorrow. And the truths you hear will not be fake or misrepresentations of reality. God has given us His unchanging Word – it is faithful and worthy of universal acceptance. His Word can be relied on. 1 Timothy 1:15 says “It is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.” We trust that the precious truths found in this verse will be understood and received by our listeners today. And not only that, but that it would be applied personally and that Christ will be accepted and trusted for the forgiveness of sins.

A Crisis Response - Jim Jarvis

You know, the gospel message basically contains three elements – the problem of sin, what God in grace has done about it, and the responsibility of the sinner to repent and receive God’s offer of forgiveness. Some people hear the glorious gospel message and receive it with joy. They see it as the answer to all their sin and their need. But, you know, others (maybe most) people have to come to some sort of crisis in their lives before they are willing to take God seriously.            In our current world situation there is a crisis. People have been made to stop and take note of their lives, their values, and their priorities both pre and post Covid-19. Today’s message looks at crises in our lives and the need for each one of us to learn from them – particularly with regard to our need for God’s forgiveness in light of an eternity that awaits each one of us.

God's Good News - Marvin Derksen

According to the Bible, the good news of the Gospel involves four basic truths. And what wonderful truths they are! First, we have an interest expressed on the part of God Himself.Yes, it all starts with ‘God so loved the world”. Secondly, there was the will of God put into action – that is, a plan was made from eternity past to deliver men and women from the bondage of sin. Then, of course, there was the price paid - the Saviour was sent to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. Lastly, the gospel involves the invitation going out worldwide for all men to repent and believe what God has done. All of these gospel truths, my friend, are what God has done. There is nothing for you to do but to come to Christ and trust in His already accomplished work. Will you receive Him today?

Are Your Sins Forgiven? - Jack Gould

Here's one question that you weren't likely asked today - Are your sins forgiven? Yes, your sins. Are they forgiven? On today's broadcast, we will be considering what the Bible has to say about forgiveness - WHY is it necessary? HOW can I get it? Important questions that we would like you to face honestly today. The Lord Jesus said that He has power "on earth" to forgiven sins. That means here and now - before you leave this early scene. Yes, you NEED the forgiveness of sins - it's not an option.

Assurance of Salvation - Eugene Higgins

Do you have a time when you first came to know Christ as YOUR Saviour? Were you ever awakened to the fact that you are a sinner in need of having your sins forgiven in order to be right with God? Have you ever received Him as your own personal Saviour and Lord and experienced the joy of salvation? We hope that you have. Well, today’s broadcast is directed towards believers and is concerned with something that unfortunately may later come into our lives. Doubts. Yes, doubts. Such as “Am I really saved?” “How can I be sure that everything is settled for eternity?” If you are a believer, we hope that today’s message will be of help to you in your Christian life.

Ready to Forgive - Peter Ramsay

Psalm 86:5 is a lovely verse. "For Thou Lord art good and ready to forgive, and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon Thee." Do you believe it? Are you harbouring some notion that God is NOT good? That God is out to get you or to make your life miserable? Or that God is somehow reluctant to forgive you? If so, you need to change your mind about the God of the Bible. What does this verse say? God is GOOD. God is READY to forgive. God is PLENTEOUS in mercy. The problem is not with God. The problem is with us. Do you realize that YOU have a great debt of sin that needs forgiveness? Won't you call upon Him today to put away your sin once and for all?

God's Remedy - John Grant

People often look at today’s sad world and ask the question, “Why doesn’t God DO something about it?”  Well, He has! God has provided a remedy for the ultimate cause of all our sorrow – sin. First, God ‘commands’ – that is, He has made His wishes known – that all men and women should repent – or turn from their sin. Secondly, God ‘commends’. That is, He has commended or expressed to us His great love in giving His only Son, the Lord Jesus Christ to be our substitute. And finally, He ‘calls’. Yes, He’s calling everyone to come to Christ to receive His free gift of forgiveness, peace, hope, and eternal life. God has provided all the remedy that we need!

At the Foot of the Cross - Jim Jarvis

Beyond the shadow of a doubt, the most amazing location in all the world is at the foot of the cross of Christ. It was there that emotions ranged from horror to peace, from guilt to forgiveness, from terror to calm, from hatred to love, from unbelief to faith in God. One of the figures who stood at the foot of the cross was a Roman centurion who was a front row spectator to the greatest event in history! What he saw and heard caused a response in his heart that changed his life and his eternity. The centurion is in heaven today because of what he did with the Lord Jesus Christ when he had the chance. Are you going to do the same?

Now is the Time - Dan Shutt

The gospel message has not changed over time. People still need to have their sins forgiven in order to go to heaven. They need to receive spiritual life from God that they cannot attain on their own. The gospel preached by the apostle Paul contained the same elements as the message is comprised of today. And he depended on the power of the Word of God to reach the hearts of sinners, just as we do today. Yes, trusting Christ should be the only sane response to the gospel message.There is far too much at stake to treat the message lightly. One day you will hear God's calling for the last time. Be wise and heed it today, won't you?

Heaven's Last Call - Marvin Derksen

Have you ever heard the call of God? Sometimes we don't realize that we're hearing it. The circumstances in life contain the call of God to us - both good times and bad times. Sometimes it's a whisper, sometimes it's a shout. Have YOU ever been made aware of God's call to YOU? But God's call comes mainly through His Word. He touches our hearts with truths that we all know to be right. We know that there is something wrong with the world - with US! We feel the guilt of our sin. We long for forgiveness and unconditional love. Don't look into strange new philosophies. Don't fall for self-improvement programs. Just read what God says - and take what He offers freely - salvation and eternal life! One day will be God's last call to you.

What Faith Looks Like - Phil Coulson

You've probably heard people say that they have 'great faith'. But surely, that is can be very deceptive. A vague, undefined notion of 'having faith' or 'being spiritual' or 'believing in a higher power' has no substance. It is merely a state of mind. Or you may have great faith in an unworthy object - for example, a boat that is filled with holes. Will that faith help you when the boat begins to sink? No, it was an unworthy object for your faith. Neither is faith something you hold onto when all else fails or when there is no evidence to stand on. Nor is it a leap into the dark. These are objections that are false and misleading. Today's broadcast involves an answer to the question, "What does faith look like?"

How God Speaks - Gaius Goff

The main way that God speaks to us is through the Bible. So, if you want to hear what God has to say - well, read the Bible. It is the most enduring book ever written. But there are many other ways that God can communicate Himself to man - in creation itself - the beauty and order of the universe and world around us. Another way is through His goodness - those good things in your life for which you feel a sense of thankfulness to the giver. And then, of course, there is conscience. There are other ways, but these three are the main ones taken up in today's message. We hope that it will be a help to you in understanding that God has an interest in you!

The Power of Your Choice - Dan Shutt

The magnificent power of the creator Himself can be seen from the far reaches of the universe to the invisible atomic building blocks of our world. But God's power extends to far more than creation.

The power to believe what God says and to trust the Saviour for themselves. What will yours be?

A Name Called Wonderful - Marvin Derksen

Isaiah wrote over 700 years ago in Chapter 9 and Verse 6 the following words: “For unto us a child is born; unto us a Son is given." We know that this child, this Son, was the Lord Jesus Christ Himself who was born in Bethlehem over 2000 years ago. But He didn’t begin his life there. The Bible says that He was the Creator of all things, the eternal Son of God. He was really born. He really died. He really rose again. And He will ultimately rule the universe as King of Kings and Lord of Lords! Do you know Him?

Evolution - A Theory in Crisis, Part 3 - Michael Penfold

For the last 2 weeks, we have been looking at 14 so-called proofs of evolution and basically dismissing each one of them in the face of closer examination. These included the three ‘great facts’ upon which Darwin rested his theory. In today’s part 3 of our series we will look at 8 problems that evolutionary theory faces in its attempt to explain the processes by which all the life around us originated without a designer God. Lastly, three pathways to a different way of looking at things are presented. Either life originated by a designer God or it arose through chance and natural processes alone. Leaving God out altogether presents an enormous problem for evolutionists on many grounds, as we have seen in this series.

Last week, we looked at 14 so-called proofs of evolution and the problems that they entail. Today’s broadcast is a continuation of this presentation where the supposed 3 ‘great facts’ that prove evolution are taken up  explaining the difficulties with each one. Unfortunately, many people don’t realize that such problems exist. God’s Word never contradicts the realities revealed by honest science. The problems with these so-called proofs for evolution is that man has already concluded what he wants – that there is no God with Whom he has to deal. We trust that you will be one of those who will believe what God says to the saving of your soul.

Evolution - A Theory in Crisis, Part 1 - Michael Penfold

Evolutionary theory is the assertion that all living things have a common ancestor from which they evolved through numerous successive changes over billions of years to produce the complexity of all life that we see today - a ‘bacterium to Beethoven’ concept. It is widely accepted, but not by all scientists. In fact, there are many, many problems with the claims of evolution. Today's message is the first of a three part series that examines the 14 main 'proofs' of evolution. If you are a Christian, we know that this short series will be a help to you in discussing this with unbelievers. And, if not a Christian, we trust that with an open mind, you will face up to the difficulties with the theory and consider what the Bible has to say about this important topic.

Christ in Psalm 23 - Sandy Higgins

The book of Psalms is one which Christians love to turn to for comfort, strength, and encouragement. Every human condition from despair and failure to joy and adoration can be found there. What a solace the psalms have been to Christians down through the ages! I’m sure that every Christian is familiar with David’s word in Psalm 23, “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” As familiar as we are with this psalm, there are many wonderful truths buried there for us to discover with each and every reading. Today's focus is on Psalm 23 as it relates to the different New Testament appearances of the Lord Jesus Christ. The truths in each of David’s statements is lived out by the Lord Himself in His post-resurrection appearances as He deals with His own beloved followers and disciples. This message takes us to the very heart of Christ Himself!

Come Unto Me - Jim Jarvis

The Bible's message of the gospel basically contains two fundamental truths. First, it involves a warning - a very strong imperative for listeners to take stock of their lives and acknowledge their great need before God. Yes, it's about facing your sin and the consequences of it. Secondly, there is the gracious invitation of God to sinners to trust Christ to put away their sin. The Lord Jesus says to us all, "Come unto Me and I will give you rest". Are there any restless souls among our listeners today? Any bad consciences? Any regrets about how your life is going? Then, this message is for you!

Lessons on the Mountain - Jack Hay

  One of the most well-known miracles of the Lord Jesus Christ is the feeding of the multitude – the 5000 men, plus women and children, with only 5 barley loaves and 2 small fish. It is interesting that this miracle is the only one which is recorded in all four of the gospels, so it is an event in the life of Christ that we would do well to learn more about. Today's broadcast examines this miracle based on the Gospel of John Chapter 6, in which John presents it as one of the ‘signs’ - remarkable evidences of divine power that prove that Jesus is truly the Son of God. There are many practical lessons from John’s account that teach us not only about the person of Christ but also about ourselves!

Will It Be Heaven For You? - Peter Ramsay

The Lord Jesus Christ gives us an unmistakable imperative in Matthew Chapter 7. He says, "Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads unto life, and few there be that find it." It is difficult to miss the two roads and the two destinies spoken of in these verses. Yes, there is a heaven; and yes, there is a hell. And the choice is ours as to which road we take and which destiny we arrive at. But only in the Bible will you find an honest and unbiased assessment of man's true nature and the unchangeable standards of God to which we must attain. But, yes, heaven IS attainable, not by our works or merit but by the work of Christ on the cross for us.

In Psalm 46 we read, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear ...” . We trust that this searching meditation will be uplifting and encouraging to you as a believer in Christ. If you don’t yet know Christ as your Saviour, you need to obey the gospel message – acknowledge your sinfulness before a holy God and accept His provision through Christ’s death on the cross as your sinless substitute. Only then will you receive the spiritual life you need to avail of the full blessing of such beautiful psalms as this where God can speak to you personally.

A Gospel That Transforms - Micah Hackett

This week's message is all about the transforming power of the gospel - the power to transform lives as well as destinies. Micah Hackett, a young man who we featured last week on our broadcast, looks at this transforming power in three aspects – the power to change the sinner’s condition before God, to change the sinner’s relationship with God, and to change the sinner’s position in God’s reckoning. In our helpless and hopeless state, this is the power we don’t have, but it is the power readily available to us through our Lord Jesus Christ. Though Micah is not with us anymore to proclaim the gospel personally, we trust that the recorded words of this young man will convince you that salvation is real and that it’s something that you, if you don’t know Christ already, desperately need. Receive the grace offered to you through Christ, even today. Tomorrow may be too late.

This week we have the first of two special broadcasts which are featuring messages given by a young man, Micah Hackett, who went to be with his Lord and Saviour on July 17th, 2019 at the young age of 19. Micah accepted Jesus as his Saviour in his youth and never looked back in his devotion and service for the Lord he loved. Even in the face of death, he was sustained by the Word of God and desired that his last days be fruitful ones. Micah loved the gospel, and this message is entitled “A Gospel Worth Preaching” where he presents the significance of the gospel, its reliability, and its power to change lives. We hope that the words of this young man just months before his passing will convince you to trust the Saviour you need as well.

Doors and Destinies - Marvin Derksen

Many people familiar with the Bible have heard the words of the Lord Jesus Christ – “Behold, I stand at the door and knock”. Why is He knocking? And why is He standing outside the door to begin with?“ In the Bible, the word 'door' is often used to express a separation – a barrier – but it also symbolizes an entrance, a way to enter, an opportunity. One thing is certain. The Lord Jesus Christ wants to come in. He is given the outside place by most people in our world today. He’s simply not welcome into their lives. But what a door of opportunity is available to us! The Lord has untold blessings to give. Have you opened your heart's door to Him?

The Lord’s return has tremendous implications particularly for those who do not know Christ as Saviour. His coming can be at any moment, and for those not ready, they will be left for certain judgment. Yet, in a world that has lost all hope for this life and the next, there is a way back to true purpose and fulfilment. The Lord Jesus Christ came to this poor hopeless world to provide an incredible salvation – it's vast, it's full, and it's free for all who will trust Him. He has finished the work that satisfies God - He has died for sin. Won’t you trust Him today? Then, you too can join the millions of saved ones who will go to be with the Lord Jesus Christ when He returns.

The pivotal point of all human history is an event that took place at a specific location here on earth - a place called Calvary. It is a place of contrasts. A place of decision. A place of destinies. This week's message will be looking at the two thieves there on either side of the Lord Jesus Christ. At first, united in their ridicule and hatred of Christ, they soon part ways. One, for the first time in his life, came to terms with his own mortality and, more importantly, his tremendous sin and need before a holy God. What we then see is a remarkable example of God's grace we see as Christ in His last hours on Calvary reaching out to save a repentant sinner. Has He ever saved you?

It's a solemn thought. The fact that we are guilty as charged goes without saying - but what will the Judge do? What kind of judge is He?

You can be certain that God desires your salvation and well-being, a blessing that the devil is also determined to keep from you.

Yet, most people don't give a moment's thought to where they will be after they die. We hope that today YOU will take the time, here and now, to consider YOUR soul. What way will you follow - God's way or you own way?

Outside the Door - Frank Sona

There are two brothers in the story of the prodigal son in the Bible. There is the disobedient and unappreciative son who prematurely takes his inheritance and leaves his father's home for a life of sin and excess in the big city. We have his father accepting him with love and forgiveness upon his return. But for his brother who considered himself okay, there was no forgiveness. No rejoicing over a sinning son that returned to his father. He remained outside the door of salvation.

Free At Last - Dan Shutt

The Bible claims that people are actually slaves - but rather to ourselves - to our own selfish desires - slaves to sin. The Bible says that this puts us into a bondage that we cannot escape through our own efforts. But there is a Saviour that God has provided. Christ came to save you from your sins and to give you freedom indeed.Have you been freed from YOUR shackles of sin? Have you ever had a time in your life when you came to Christ to be set free?

Condemned No More - Jim Jarvis

Salvation is only open to those who come "as a sinner" to Jesus. In our world today, there is so much emphasis on 'living and let live' as it were. No one wants to be corrected or questioned in any way. Well, the Bible makes it clear that we all belong under the classification of 'sinners' whether we like the term or not. That makes us all condemned. God longs to embrace the sinner in love and forgiveness. But we need to agree with God and come as a sinner to Calvary's cross in order to receive God's full and free forgiveness.

Twenty-Five Words - Marvin Derksen

The gospel message that we present weekly on Anchorpoint is really not a complicated one. The message can be expressed in just 25 words. Twenty-five words that can mean the difference between eternal life and eternal death. "This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief."       Yes, the Lord Jesus Christ came to do for us what we could never do for ourselves. Can you trust in the record that God has given us about it

God's Great Search - Brody Thibodeau

There is quite a touching account in the Old Testament of the love story between Isaac and Rebekah. Abraham, Isaac's father, initiated a search throughout the land to find the perfect wife for his son. She believed the word that she heard from the seeking servant and left all that pertained to her old life behind. So, what will your answer be? Will you, like Rebekah, consider the offer? Will you also respond, "I will go with this man"?

Justifying the Unjust - Phil Coulson

There is a wonderful verse in the Bible, 1 Peter 3:18 - "For Christ also has once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God". Yes, Christ has suffered the momentous judgment of God against sin, opening the way for repentant sinners to avail of God's great gift of salvation. In this week's message, Phil Coulson looks at some Old Testament illustrations and then applies this principle of judgment to what happened in its ultimate extreme on the cross when Christ suffered to put away sin.

A Night to Remember - Peter Ramsay

In John Chapter 3, we read the story of one man's personal interview with the Lord Jesus Christ. His name was Nicodemus, and we are told that he came to Jesus sometime in the night. And what a memorable night that was in the experience of this religious, yet empty man! A night he would always remember. A night that he came to realize that the Lord Jesus Christ was much more than a teacher - He was a Saviour - the Saviour he desperately needed if he were ever to be in heaven.

How to Get Right with God - William Skates

One of the most ancient questions in the world was asked by Job in the old testament - "How can a man be just with God?" Or maybe we could say "How can I have my sins forgiven? How can I know that I will be in heaven?" The Lord Jesus told a story to illustrate what the answer was. You see, the answer to God's ancient question is Christ himself. It is through Christ that we are justified and cleared of all guilt. It is through Christ that we have peace with God.

Here's a personal question for you. What do you think of Christ? It's not really an unusual question. You see, it was asked over 2000 years ago. And do you know Who asked the question? The Lord Jesus Christ Himself! He asked the people who followed Him what they thought of Him? Notice He did not ask what they thought ABOUT Him. His question went much deeper than that. So, what if YOU were there that day? What would YOU have said? It's a question that will determine your eternal destiny.

Our Great High Priest - Stephen Harper

One of the beautiful pictures in the Bible is that of the Lord Jesus Christ as our great High Priest. Priests represent people before God – they stand in the place of the people. Did you know that Christ does that? Because He is sinless, He can come before God and plead for us. He does not need a sacrifice for His own sins. He had none. Instead, He has become a great sacrifice Himself. He presented Himself to God in our place and became a substitute for us, dying in our place on Calvary’s cross. We don’t need an earthly priest to bring us to God – we just need Christ!

I Am the Door - Brody Thibodeau

The Lord Jesus Christ in His attempt to reach sinners of all intellects and educational levels, gave illustrations that were simple enough for even children to understand. One example is when He refers to Himself as a “door” – an entrance way, if you will – into heaven. But please notice that he goes further than to call himself a door – he calls Himself THE door. Yes, Christ says that the demands of a holy and offended God will accept only one way. So, have YOU entered in through the door that God has provided?

The Wonderful Gift of God - Peter Ramsay

Every religion in our world today stresses the importance of the need to do something in order to obtain the approval of a divine being, the forgiveness for wrongdoings, or the attainment of spiritual peace within. The Bible, however, is very clear in its emphasis that there is nothing that we are able to do to please God, that we are spiritually bankrupt. Over and over again, the scriptures point out how that eternal life and forgiveness with God is a GIFT – a gift that comes from God, not from us. That is really why the gospel is really all about good news – there is a divine solution to a tremendous problem that we are unable to fix ourselves.

Enter In at the Strait Gate - Jim Jarvis

The Bible speaks very simply of two roads and two destinies. One road is broad and very crowded. It has room for everybody’s opinions and ideas. It has room for every pleasure and distraction you can think of. Unfortunately, multitudes choose this road. It's easy and it steadily flows along day after day as we pursue our own desires. However, the other road is narrow. There’s no room for a hundred different viewpoints and a thousand different pleasure trips – there’s only room for God’s way, for righteousness and truth. Unlike the other road, this one goes up – upwards to heaven, and it’s a road we'd all be wise to choose.

But God - Marvin Derksen

How often we, as mere human beings, make our every day plans as is we are in total control of our lives. We forget the disclaimer often made in the Word of God - the little words "BUT GOD". Yes, God has the final word. Perhaps we face some very difficult circumstances in life, and there seems to be no way out. Or, worse still, we learn about our sinful condition before a holy God and come to realize that there is nothing we can do about it. It is wonderful to know that despite our condition and circumstances, there is a God Who is ready to step into our lives and make a difference.

Salvation in None Other - Gaius Goff

 The Christian faith is very clear on this one important fact - that there is salvation in nothing or no one else but the Lord Jesus Christ. Acts 4:12 states: "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." Man's universal problem is sin - and sin must be put away if we are to be on the right terms with a holy God. As sinners, we cannot do this ourselves. We need the intervention of another who has no sin of His own - that is, the sacrifice of Christ on the cross. And there is only one way to receive it - by trusting in His work alone.

It is impossible to over-emphasize the importance of the Word of God when it comes to the salvation of the soul. It is only by depending on the authority of the Bible that sinners can firmly secure their faith as sure as an anchor holds fast to a giant rock. But not only do we need this firm foundation of our faith - we need to hear it for ourselves. We need to hear God speaking to us THROUGH His Word. It is the Word of God that is able to save the soul. "Beautiful words, wonderful words, wonderful words of life!" the hymn writer could say. Have you trusted them?

The Troubled Saviour - Jon Procopio

The Bible is quite clear on the true natural human condition. Indeed, the problem of sin troubled the Saviour very much. And we should be troubled by it as well. In fact, it must be faced if we are ever to appreciate the good news at all. Today's broadcast takes up the topic of a 'troubled Saviour', referring to instances in the Bible where it is stated that Christ was greatly troubled. Each of these times is in response to sin and the devastation it causes to human lives. But what a wonderful promise the Saviour gives to us!  "Let not your heart be troubled. Believe in me." What amazing grace! Christ was troubled so that we might not be. This is the heart of the gospel message.

Love's Highest Expression - Peter Ramsay

The gospel message is full of superlatives. Its importance, its magnificence, its consequences are of an incomprehensible order of magnitude. It involves love's highest expression - the unbounded love of God shown to us in the person of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. And it is expressed most fully at the cross of Calvary where the Lord Jesus Christ suffered and died for the ungodly. But at Calvary we humanity's truest colours as well. The true wickedness of the heart of man against God has been revealed. Here we see the heaviest load imaginable placed upon the Saviour himself - the load of the sin of all people, of all the ages. And one more superlative - the broadest acceptance imaginable to sinners far and wide.

The well known story in the Bible of Zacchaeus is about much more than how a short man climbed a tree to see Jesus. It's all about a sinner who earnestly sought out the Saviour, an individual tired of his sins, a rich man sick of his money who wanted instead the true riches of God's salvation. And, yes, it's also about a seeking Saviour - one who came specifically to seek and to save the lost - the one whose heart yearned for the salvation of sinful souls. Is it any wonder then that the two of them met?

"Your sins are forgiven", He said. Why would He say this? The man needed to be healed, didn't he? But to Christ, he had a more obvious need - the forgiveness of sins. The same goes for you and me.

Apart from the cross itself, there can be no more poignant a symbol of the horrendous sufferings of Christ than the awful crown of thorns that He wore. The hymn writer wrote, "See from His head, His hands, His feet; sorrow and love flow mingled down; Did e'er such love and sorrow meet; Or thorns compose so rich a crown?"

What is a Christian? - Gaius Goff

One of the most misunderstood concepts in religious circles is the actual definition of the word 'Christian'. Some countries are considered 'Christian' countries simply because Christianity is the belief system of most of its residents. Does being a Christian mean that you belong to a certain church or that you are a God-fearing, law-abiding citizen? No. The Bible's definition of a Christian is not any of these. You may be surprised at the scriptural answer to this question. Make sure that you are truly a Christian today - one that God recognizes as His very own.

Are you rich towards God? It's certainly possible not to be. In fact, if we are still sinners - if we have never been saved - then, we are definitely not rich towards Him. Our lives would be all taken up with ourselves - our own pleasures and plans. Lord Jesus Christ told a parable about such a person. Sadly, he forgot to take God into account and the Lord Jesus calls him a fool. Tragically, we are all in peril of doing the same thing - of coming to the end of life - perhaps unexpectedly - and finding out too late that we were fools in God's eyes. We hope that you take heed to Christ’s teachings in our message today.

Almost 3000 years ago, the great prophet Isaiah penned these tremendous words in Isaiah 32, verses 1 and 2 - "Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment; and a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land." What did he mean? Who was this king? What is this tempest? When will all this happen? And how can a man be a hiding place? In our message today, you will hear answers to these and other questions as Phil Coulson relates Isaiah's words to the apostle John's revelations about the coming judgment on this planet.

Father Forgive Them - David Hierlihy

Today's message brings us back to the cross of Calvary - the place where God's love and God's justice met. It was there that God declared His supreme desire for mankind - their forgiveness. Listen to the words of Jesus when He said, "Father, forgive them." What gracious words in the face of abject hatred and cruelty! This message takes us back to that scene and the events that led up to the utterance of those marvellous words.

The Realities of Salvation - Marvin Derksen

This message is a 'bird's eye-view" of the basics of the gospel message. An answer to questions people often ask when they become concerned about spiritual things. Questions like - What has God done? And why did He do it? How much did it cost God? How much does it cost me? And who's included? We hope that the answers to these questions will open your understanding as to what God is trying to communicate to us poor sinners.

The Blessing of Forgiveness - Dan Shutt

Christians understand and acknowledge that, despite the world' sceptical and unthankful attitude at times, God is the ultimate source of all of our blessings. The greatest of all blessings that God wants you to receive from Him is His forgiveness through our Lord Jesus Christ. The first verse of Psalm 32 says "Blessed is he - or she - whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered." At the end of the day, isn't that all that really matters?

The Power of God Unto Salvation - John Grant

There is not a philosophy, a religious doctrine, an educational treatise, a scientific theory that comes close to delivering the power that is found in the preaching of the Gospel. This week's message looks at the power of God in salvation as expressed at Calvary. There were three crosses there. One sufferer died with the assurance of eternal life; the other faced certain judgment as he rejected his only hope. Which of the two thieves represent you?

The Love of God - Norman Crawford

Today, we’ll be hearing about the wonderful love of God for us - this special love of God which was offered before we ever loved Him - love that was first in time, in degree, in grace, and finally in its claims upon us as believers to reach out to see others saved. What a marvellous love! We hope that if you’re not saved, that you’ll accept God’s priceless gift – His Only Son – as your Saviour today.

What Heaven is Like - Eugene Higgins

How do you imagine heaven? A place of never-ending rest – a kind of celestial retirement home? Or maybe a place where you can do whatever you want? A place of beautiful architecture, scenery, and music?Well, what does the Bible say? After all, it IS God’s heaven. Has He not told us something of what that place is really like? Well, yes, He has. But does God’s description fit yours? You may be surprised!

Seven Truths About Sin - Michael Penfold

Would you be surprised to know that the Bible's teaching about sin and judgment can be found in the beloved book of the Psalms? It is not only in the New Testament's proclamation of the gospel that we hear about man's need and God's remedy. Psalm 53, for example, considers seven aspects of sin, but then goes on to explain how God has dealt with the sin problem - for US!

Seek Ye First the Kingdom of God - Gaius Goff

In Matthew 6:33, we have the words of the Lord Jesus Christ, "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Yes, it was taught by Christ that the kingdom of God is something that we should all strive to enter into - that is, we should make it a priority in our lives. None of us are born naturally into the kingdom of God, but the good news is that the kingdom of God is as close as a humble, repentant heart. Have YOU entered that kingdom?

The Four L's of the Gospel - Marvin Derksen

Today’s message explains the truths of the gospel very simply using just 4 words, and they each begin with the letter “L”. The first one is "lost" - making the uncomfortable discovery that you don’t know where you are or where you are going. The truth is, you are actually ‘lost’ long before you make that realization! This is what God is trying to get us to acknowledge. The gospel message includes three more of these "L's" - “left”, “loosed”, and the best one of all – “Lord”!

Only One God - David Hierlihy

1 Timothy 2:5 says, "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus." How much is contained in this statement! First, there is one God. This seems like an odd statement when we consider all the religions in the world. How can this be? Secondly, this verse tells us about one go-between - between man and God - and that person is the Lord Jesus Christ. Do you know Him? Have you ever stopped and received this great gift of reconciliation that God so freely offers?

Our Sin Problem - Peter Ramsay

There is only one issue that is keeping you from God. Sin. Yes, sin has become almost an archaic term in today's liberal society. People today make mistakes, wrong choices maybe. But the Bible calls it for what it really is - sin - rebellion against God. And God tells us that over and over again in His Word that sin brings death and destruction. But God also tells us in the Bible many times over that He has done something about our sin problem. He has provided a Saviour. Do you know Him?

This Man's Blood - Marvin Derksen

The Bible is filled with the theme of the precious blood of Christ. It is pictured in the Old Testament and seen with clarity in the New. Without the shedding of blood there is no remission for sin. It's why Christ came - to pay the price for sin on our behalf. Have you accepted the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus, His death upon the cross as payment for YOUR sin? That is what it means to be a Christian. Trust Him today.

The Search is On - Marvin Derksen

It’s a familiar story told by the Lord Jesus – the story of the lost sheep. As He tells this story, He paints for us a vivid picture of a poor, lost sheep – helpless and hopeless in itself. But He also describes Himself – the shepherd – the good shepherd who cares for His sheep enough to give His life. It really pictures ourselves, lost in our sins, and the Lord Jesus Christ as the Saviour or rescuer of our souls. Have you ever seen yourself as the lost sheep that Jesus came to save?

Is It Nothing to You? - Eugene Higgins

The wonderful message of the cross is the main theme of the Bible. "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son." How little this stupendous fact crosses the minds of sinful men and women! In fact, it was prophetically written in Lamentations 1:12 - "Is it nothing to you, all you who pass by? Behold and see if there be any sorrow like unto my sorrow which is done unto me wherewith the Lord has afflicted me in the day of His fierce anger." The same question can be asked today. Is it nothing to you?

Peace with God - Bill Seale

Something that unifies all of mankind is the most basic need of peace in our minds and in our souls. But how elusive it is - despite our many efforts to attain it! The problem is a simple one. We are all looking in the wrong places. The Bible says that we need to look to a person. There is only one 'Peace Giver' - the Lord Jesus Christ. He not only promises peace - peace that the world cannot give, but He did what was required to attain it for us! It is only by trusting Christ as Saviour that you will become a believer on Christ - and truly know the peace of sins forgiven!

The Three Questions of Nicodemus - John Grant

Some of the most important truths regarding God's way of salvation was revealed by the Lord Jesus Christ to a religious Jewish rabbi. Nicodemus had three important questions for Christ to answer that go something like this: "You came from God, right?", "How can a man be born again when he is old?", and "How is the new birth possible in my life?" The Lord Jesus Christ answers each of these questions and, in so doing, provides us with the vital answers that WE need as well.

Shall Never Thirst - Peter Ramsay

One drink is enough to satisfy, not only for time, but for all eternity. You’ll never thirst again!

David wrote in Psalm 18 – “As for God, His way is perfect.” The Lord will guide the Christian's footsteps and meets their commitment with the strength needed to carry it through.

What It Means To Be Saved - David Hierlihy

Sometimes people struggle with the Biblical term 'saved'. Often, this is simply because they don't quite get the concept of being lost. If I am saved, then it certainly implies that there was something I needed to be saved from. And there is. We all need to be saved from a purposeless life, from the unhappy consequences of sin here on earth, and most of all from the eternal consequences of sin after life is over - in hell separated from God forever. Do YOU know what it means to be saved?

Who Then Can Be Saved? - Gaius Goff

The word ‘saved’ is a very weighty word in the Bible. But it is used very often. In fact, the disciples often asked the Lord Jesus questions about what it means to be saved.

This means that we need to take the gospel message personally and seriously. Have you?

It's a sad commentary on the human heart. Just like the prodigal, we take all the good things that the Father has provided for us and leave for the 'far country' to spend our time and resources on things that just don't satisfy. Only when the prodigal 'came to his senses' was he prepared to turn back again in search of all that he had left behind.

Dr. Higgins continues with his subject today, specifically talking about our ‘leisure time’ in terms of purpose, priorities and pitfalls.

My Time Your Time, Part 1 - Sandy Higgins

How often we, as Christians, fall into the snare of wasting the precious time we have, usually through making poor choices in how we spend it - for ourselves and not for the Lord. But we can also become ensnared by our past failures and regrets that prevent us from moving forward in our walk for the Lord. The answer is maintaining the pre-eminence of Christ in our lives. This gives us the joy, strength, and direction we need to live for Him.
