Rob Norman: Priorities | Marketplace

The Marketplace is where we interact with the world on a daily basis. We are a church in the marketplace. Our vision to take ministry to the marketplace removes the separation between the sacred and the secular which is a form dualism.

This means: Our missiology (the way we do missions) must be consistent with our ecclesiology (the way we do church).

Rob Norman: Advent| God Became Flesh

‘The Word became flesh (John 1:14) is this is the lynch pin of the Christian confession. Jesus did not cease to be God when he was born into the World as a human baby. He was not all-of-a-sudden God minus the bits that don’t fit into a baby.  Jesus is the ‘One and Only’.

Rob Norman: Our Core Values| The Works of God

There are many churches that preach a Gospel that is devoid of the miraculous kingdom works of Jesus. Even, Charismatic churches, often default to a position that is aimed at attracting people to church by providing a presentation.

Our preference if to provide a demonstrating of the power of God through the works of Jesus. This is the reason we have a ministry time.

Hebrews 13:1-10

This first part of Hebrews chapter 13 lays some very important foundations for the church.  The Christian life is portrayed as a race that we must win, and we win it by finishing everything Jesus calls us to.

What we haven’t realized, perhaps until now, is that the race is a heptathlon.

Hebrews 12

Hebrews paints the picture of a kingdom that is on a continuum; rather than discrete periods or ‘dispensations’ where God behaved differently and had different expectations of His people. In other words; the OT and the NT are a part of the same narrative; the God of the OT is the same as the God of the NT.

Hebrews 10

The Christian life is not a “tweak” we make to our lives to help us through the tough times, provide us with good times or provide us with a free ticket to the afterlife club including your very own cloud and an eternity’s supply of harp lessons.

The Christian life is a completely new way of living. It is a complete game changer and it doesn’t integrate well into the world or environment around us.

Hebrews | The Kingdom Of Heaven

Rob Norman: Hebrews| The Kingdom Of Heaven

Hebrews 9, 10

The Tabernacle and everything in it were copies (or representations) of what takes place in Heaven.

In Heaven, God’s kingdom is executed perfectly every time. We know by experience that is not the case here in the natural world! Do we always see sick people healed every time we pray?

The sacrifices that took place in the Tabernacle were an imperfect representation of Heaven’s requirement for the payment for sin.    Only the perfection of Jesus could satisfy God’s justice.

This passage provides a great, classic, description of the Kingdom of God…
