Every week we want to bring to your attention expository, Gospel-centred sermons from pastors across Canada. We hope that you become familiar with some of the faithful ministers of the word in our nation. We also hope that you will be edified on your daily commute or whenever you listen to these messages. We lastly hope that you learn about the churches where these pastors minister, so that you can easily find Gospel-centered, expository churches in your region.
Rob Godard on “It Is Finished…It Is Foundational…It Is Fantastic” from 1 Corinthians 15:12–28 (Surrey)
HE IS RISEN. The resurrection of Jesus is a powerful life changing reality, that we treasure as a church. For us it is so much more than head knowledge, it gives our life meaning. In fact if Jesus did not rise from the dead we are most to be pitied…our faith would be vain, and our lives worthless. BUT IN FACT CHRIST HAS BEEN RAISED FROM THE DEAD. HE IS RISEN.

Julian Freeman on ‘Live Right on Earth With Treasures in Heaven’ from Matthew 6:19–24 (Toronto)
Sermon Description: Jesus offers us grace to persevere in this world with freedom and joy in serving one master with all our heart. The key to living that life on earth? Placing our treasures in heaven.
When Your Treasures Are in Heaven…
1) …You Put Your Heart in the Right Place
2) …Your Eyes Will Seek Out What Is Right
3) …You Will Obey the Right Master
George Sinclair on “A Sure and Certain Hope” from 1 Thessalonians 4:12–18 (Ottawa)
What is the Christians confidence in the face of death? How on earth can something that happened to one man (Jesus) effect someone living today? Doesn’t the picture of Christians going up into the clouds just show that the Bible is absurd and not serious? How can this message about Jesus change what I face today? Let’s look at the Bible together.
Paul Martin on “The Conscience” (Toronto)
What exactly is a conscience? Does everyone have one? Is it a spiritual gift? Should we always listen to it? Can it trick us? It seems pretty important to know what it is and how it works if so much of our unity depends on what we do with it!
Jeff Eastwood on “Companionship” from Ecclesiastes 4:7-12 (Charlottetown, PE)
Companionship: its benefits are not always appreciated, but what help and comfort a trusted companion is. As we reflect on Resurrection Sunday this Easter weekend, follow along as Pastor Jeff preaches from Ecclesiastes 4:7-12.
