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.
Julian Freeman on “Pray For One Another” from James 5:13–18 (Toronto)
This is the church we want to be: Where our words run Godward, the power of God flows downward, and members minister the healing power of God to members. It all happens in prayer.
1. We Want to Be A Church Where Our Words Run Godward in Prayer
2. We Want to Be A Church Where God’s Power Runs Downward in Prayer
3. We Want to Be A Church Where Members Minister to Members in Prayer
4. We Want to Be A Church Where We Can Bleed in Confession to Be Healed in Prayer
George Sinclair on “Good News. God Does Not Love You Unconditionally” from Ephesians 5:1–21 (Ottawa)
Most Canadians say they believe in unconditional love. Most North American Christians would say that God loves us unconditionally. In fact, to say that that is not the case seems heretical. Let’s look at Ephesians 5:1-21 where we will see that God does not love you unconditionally, and that his love is vastly better.
Jeff Eastwood on “Community Care” from Colossians 4:2–6 (Charlottetown)
After encouraging the Colossian church community with the reality of their identity in Christ, Paul turns their attention to those who are not yet part of that community by inviting the Colossian believers to live their lives prayerfully and evangelistically. Follow along as Pastor Jeff preaches on “Community Care” from Colossians 4:2-6.

Steve Kim on “Walk in Christ” from Colossians 2:6–7
Imagine a well-constructed house with roots that grow deep into the ground. When you come a little closer, you realize this isn’t just a house, it’s a law firm. And when you look at the top of the house, you see a fountain that never turns off.
This is basically how the apostle Paul imagines a Christain’s life. At this point in the letter, the apostle Paul moves from theology to application. Since the Colossians saints have received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, he now calls on them to “walk in him.” Paul gives four characteristics of what this Christian walk looks like.
