Sermons by Pastor Brendan Fischer

Saved To Be Sanctified

Exodus 12:14-20 — “Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses…” At the same time the LORD instituted the Passover, He also instituted another feast for Israel to keep, the Feast of Unleavened Bread. What did this feast involve and what did it symbolise? As…

A City Needs People

Nehemiah 11 — The walls of Jerusalem were finished, but there was a reluctance among the people to take up residence in the city. In this chapter we see how this problem was solved and what it has to teach us about the present and future grace that is ours in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Making Decisions

I Samuel 8 — “Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king…” Israel wanted a king and they wanted Samuel to make it happen. The people wanted a king, in part, because of a poor decision that Samuel had made in appointing his sons as judges. Israel…

Supporting The Sanctuary

Nehemiah 10:32-39 — In recommitting themselves to the LORD, the people of Jerusalem determined to properly support Temple worship. This included a commitment to follow the laws concerning tithes and offerings, as well as a decision to provide additional support. As we study what the people resolved to do, we are reminded that it is…

God Has Provided The Lamb

Confession was made for the sins of the people but it didn’t just stop with prayer, there was practical change. Spiritual reformation began with the people…

God Loves You And God Loves Me

Romans 5:8 — “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” What is the nature of God’s love? Who are are the recipients of God’s love? And how has God proved His love?  These are three vitally important questions and Pastor Brendan answers them for us…

The Passover Preview

Exodus 11 — Who is the LORD? This is the central question in the Book of Exodus and in this chapter, which previews the tenth and final plague, we’re given some answers. We learn that the LORD is supremely sovereign, He is forever faithful, and He is the just judge. 

The Role Of Fasting In The Christian Life

Nehemiah 9:1-3 –As a sign of repentance the people of Jerusalem undertook a fast. The Word of God had been preached and they began to recognise and acknowledge their sin. Their example opens up the whole question of fasting and what the Bible says about it. Is it something Christians are commanded to practice? What…
