Sermons by Pastor Brendan Fischer

What Would It Take?

Nehemiah 4:7-23 — What would it take for us to quit following Christ? How do we endure the opposition that inevitably comes when we try to live as Jesus called us to? Could our view of the Christian life and prayer be hindering rather than helping us? These are the questions we consider as Pastor…

God Is…

Exodus 3:13-15 — What’s in a name? In Bible times names were often highly significant, they revealed something important about a person. So what about God’s name? What is it and what does it mean? In this sermon, Pastor Brendan unfolds to us what we learn about God from the name He revealed to Moses…

Forsaking It All

Exodus 2:11-15a — Moses was raised as a prince of Egypt. He received the finest education possible and enjoyed all the comforts of palace life.

A Saviour Is Born

Exodus 2:1-10 — The circumstances surrounding the birth and first few years of Moses’ life are truly remarkable.

A Call To Build

Nehemiah 2:9-20 — After a lengthy and difficult journey from Sushan, Nehemiah arrived at Jerusalem. It was perhaps the first time he had seen the city and sadly, it was in a terrible condition.

Achieving Great Things For God

Nehemiah 2:1-8 — In this text we come to the most critical point in the narrative of the Book.

What did Nehemiah say when he was questioned? Did…

Powerful Prayers

Nehemiah 1:4-11 — When Nehemiah learned what life was like for those who’d returned to Jerusalem his first response was to pray.

Who Will You Fear?

Exodus 1:15-21 — In Egypt Pharaoh’s word was law. He had the power of life and death. So when he ordered the Hebrew midwives to kill all male children at birth what were they going to do? What would drive their decision? — The fear of Pharaoh or the fear of the LORD?  As we consider…

A Caring Heart

Nehemiah 1:1-4 — The great work that God performed through Nehemiah began with a great work in Nehemiah and that’s what we see in these opening verses. Nehemiah received a report concerning life in Jerusalem and it wasn’t good. God’s people were suffering and this moved Nehemiah to tears. As we consider Nehemiah’s response we…

Lessons In Suffering

Exodus 1:6-14 — After centuries in Egypt circumstances changed dramatically for the Children of Israel. A new Pharaoh decided to turn on this group of people that had grown rapidly.
