Welcome, haere mai, talofa lava, kia orana, fakaalofa lahi atu, anyoung haseyo
Join us every Sunday morning at 9:30am for a warm hearted, inspiring, familiar style service that will encourage you and give your faith a much needed lift. St Enoch’s has a growing, diverse congregation and a thriving Sunday School for children from toddlers to teens.
Everyone’s welcome for tea and coffee after the Sunday service.
Integrity and credibility are qualities under threat. Based on experience, the claimed functions and abilities of many advertised products are treated with a good measure of suspicion. News presented in the guise of credibility with apparently verified facts and good supporting evidence sometimes prove to be fake news. World leaders give contradicting statements within short periods of time. In the game of politics, we constantly witness the self-serving manipulation of situations and interpretation of events. We knowingly or unconsciously are selective with the evidence we use in support of our position on something about which we are passionate. More than once I had people unflinchingly look me in the eyes and blatantly lie to me.
In sharp contrast, Jesus Christ is a credible witness of God’s love and who God is. Jesus’ life and ultimate sacrifice leave no doubt that He is the Son of God who achieved salvation for all who believe.
Yet, many people treat this good news as just another narrative that might or might not be true.
Numerous of Jesus’ contemporaries bore witness to his work and life. We have experienced lives changed when people come to faith. The Holy Spirit has opened our eyes to the love of God and inspired us to accept the invitation to believe and enter into relationship with God.
The question remains though whether we are credible witnesses of God among the people with whom we cross paths. “…let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.” (Mat 5:16)
For many people belonging to a Church is a vital and positive part of their lives. Church membership offers a supportive community, people with whom they hold shared values and links to a tradition and faith.
