Recent Sermons by Dr Masters

True Greatness with God

- Sunday PM January 16, 2022
No flesh, says Paul, will glory before God, 'flesh' referring to humanity alienated from God and pursuing its own objectives and desires. This statement offends human pride, but here are the reasons and the way God freely forgives, receives and reconciles individuals to Himself.

A Manual for the Godly Life

- Sunday AM January 16, 2022
This first study of a new series explores the great themes of the opening verses - the credentials of a preacher, the definition of a church, grace as the basis of all blessing, the features of conversion, and the wonders of partnership with Christ.

Elijah’s Godly Jealousy

- Wednesday PM January 12, 2022

The Church’s Dangers

- Wednesday PM January 5, 2022

The Decisive Call of God

- Sunday PM January 2, 2022
Matthew's account of his conversion could not be shorter. So little is said, but much is implied. Here are the events that led to the moment that the Gospel writer yielded his life to Christ, and how two words made all the difference.

Articles & Books

The Merger of Calvinism with Worldliness

Dr Peter Masters

A new form of Calvinism took the shape of a movement from about 2005, but it differed from the original in its acceptance of ‘the world’. This critique written in 2009 was sharply attacked by New Calvinistic preachers but strongly endorsed by conservative preachers worldwide.

Comfort for Tried Believers

C H Spurgeon

This tender yet challenging message from a pastor’s heart deals remarkably with personal temptation, and includes many profound observations. ‘There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it’ (1 Corinthians 10.13)

Recent Race Demonstrations

Dr Peter Masters

In the light of recent Black Lives Matter (BLM) demonstrations might I offer these comments.  All manifestations of racial disrespect are disgraceful to sincere Christian people. They flow obviously from the Fall of man. All hatred, all superiority, all disdain, all persecution of ‘other’ ethnic groups and religions, together with all ideological persecution (which is the greatest killer in modern times), and all class prejudice is forbidden by the sixth commandment – ‘Thou shalt not kill.’

How God Uses His People in Soul Winning

C H Spurgeon

Are you a soul winner? Jesus Christ is glad to save sinners, but most of all He is glad to save them by the means of those already saved. This article is a must read for all who seek to honour the Lord in winning souls to Christ.

Missionary Triumph over Slavery

Peter Masters



We are being told today that Christian missionaries of the past were tools of colonial oppression. The story of missionary William Knibb shows how wildly wrong this is. Persecuted by British rulers in Jamaica because he opposed settlers’ abuses, he was pivotal in swinging British public opinion behind legislation to end colonial slavery.


God’s Rules for Holiness

Peter Masters



Taken at face value the Ten Commandments are binding on all people, and will guard the way to Heaven, so that evil will never spoil its glory and purity. But the Commandments are far greater than their surface meaning, as this book shows.


Sacrifice

Howard Guinness



How much we need the challenging call of Howard Guinness’ Sacrifice! Only this level of commitment will take us through life’s journey used by God, and rejoicing in his power and love. From his time as a medical student at Bart’s, London, through his years as a worldwide student evangelist, and during his long ministry in Sydney, Dr Guinness lived the message of this book. May we do so also, to the glory of God.


Should Christians Drink?

Dr Peter Masters



What are the biblical arguments which have convinced the majority of Bible believers during the last two centuries that the Lord wants His people to abstain? Why should something ‘right’ for Old Testament Israelites be ‘wrong’ for Christ’s church?
