The reason behind this blog comes from a discussion with a friend who was feeling lonely and alone in the world and we were chatting about what we do in our lives and how that impacts how we feel and who we are. I was telling her that to me my faith was everything and […]

Why we think God exists

by Blog Team

We have ecclesias all over the world. In New Zealand they are currently running a series called bubble banter. Bubble because at the moment wherever we live in the world because of the pandemic our socialising has been curbed and we are now listening to zoom or go to meeting bible studies from our home […]

I believe in the power of prayer

by admin

Webster’s Dictionary defines prayer as: “A solemn and humble approach to Divinity in word or thought usually involving beseeching, petition, confession, praise or thanksgiving.” Prayer, in some form, has been a part of the religious life of most cultures that have existed down through time. Mostly it was a means of calling to an unseen […]

God’s Object in Subjecting us to Vanity

by admin

There are some things that we have to remember that we would rather forget. The remembrance of them brings no pleasure.

The Resurrection of Jesus

by admin

I do not know of […]

Are there benefits to faith?
