MESSAGE GUIDE: David: Issues of the Heart

The great thing about Scripture is it always tells us the truth about its heroes. The Bible doesn’t put its heroes in stain glassed windows and make them look pretty and dangle halos above their heads because that’s not true, that’s not the way life is. That doesn’t represent the battle and conflict that life itself becomes, especially when you are in a relationship with God, when your appetite for righteousness and your desire for what is good is heightened and your awareness of what is wrong is equally heightened. We are in turmoil over this dilemma in our own hearts. The story of David starts with Saul as the first and present king over Israel. He had begun well but his trust in God had turned to belief in himself and his own abilities leading to to arrogance and disobedience. Samuel came to Saul one day and told him, “Your kingdom will not endure; the Lord has sought out a man after his own heart and appointed him leader of his people, because you have not kept the LORD’S command.” And so before David is ever mentioned, he is described to Saul that he will be a man after God’s own heart. That word ‘heart’ is a very important one in the Scripture. It reoccurs about 570 times and never seems to be speaking of the physical heart. Rather it is talking of the inner core of our lives—our psychological, emotional and spiritual heart. It’s about our attitudes, our disposition, our feelings, our intentions—it is the action center of our lives. You may call it our character or our personality. It is where we feel, where we dream, and where we make decisions. When a boy says to a girl, “I love you with all my heart,” he is not saying, “I love you with all my ventricles, veins, aorta and valves. I even love you with my cholesterol and my plaque.” That isn’t what he is saying. He is saying, “I love you in the inner core of my mind, my emotions and my will. I love you in that action center of my life.” In this series, Charles challenges us to carefully examine the deep and real issues of the heart that make all the difference in our relationship with our Saviour.

MESSAGE GUIDE: Faith, Hope and Love

1 Corinthians, Chapter 13 is considered the classic chapter on love in which Paul beautifully states, "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love (13:13). This week, Charles Price begins a three part series and explains how all of Christian experience sits on faith, hope and love. Love without faith, faith without hope and hope without love is not a functioning Christian life. Like a three-legged stool, if one of the legs breaks, the stool will collapse. We are not at liberty to have one without the other. These three must remain intact.

MESSAGE GUIDE: James: Just Do It

The Bible says ‘James a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ. The word servant here literally means slave. A slave was usually considered to be a person owned by another person without rights and to be used and disposed of in whatever way, the owner may wish.
James could have said, ‘ I am a brother of Jesus’ but he does not. That is the level of servanthood and true discipleship that James has entered into, that every true disciple must enter into, where we can say, I am not my own. I am owned by Him.
Charles Price in his series ‘James: Just Do It’ shares the practical down to earth wisdom of the Word, that they aren’t just words written out in some seminary office somewhere, but these are written on the front lines of warfare and battle. And in the midst of trials we ought to ‘Just do it’ as a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ.

MESSAGE GUIDE: Job: From Tragedy to Triumph

If you know nothing else about the Book of Job you probably know it's a book based on suffering— physically, materially, emotionally, and even spiritually as God remains silent for a long period. We know that most of us would have great dif culty accepting suffering in our own lives when it comes to our health, our kids, our marriage, our job or our circumstances. The Book of Job presents us with this whole question of suffering and explores possible causes and explanations for it. “Then Job fell to the ground in worship and said: 'Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked I will depart. The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; may the name of the LORD be praised.' In all this, Job did not sin by charging God with wrongdoing.” —Job 1:20-22 (NIV)
Charles Price in this expository series 'Job: From Tragedy to Triumph' presents deep truths in a simple, practical and understandable manner. It is his prayer that we are able to face life as it is, with all its pain, suffering and unanswered questions. Not by burying our heads in the sand so we won't even ask the hard questions, but by discovering what Job discovered at the end of the book—that God spoke to him out of the storm, right when he was in the midst of severe tragedy, and moved on to triumph in God.

MESSAGE GUIDE: Living Your Inheritance


Christianity makes no real sense until we know that Christ is the essential content of the Christian life. It is not a creed that we simply ascribe to. Not simply a belief system or a lifestyle. He isn't just a giver of life; He is the life that He gives. That's what makes Christianity more than a religion, more than an ethic,more than a lifestyle, more than the empty dream of an idealist. It is that Christ Himself. is God's gift to us.
Jesus doesn't say, "I will feed you the bread of life". He says, "I am the bread of life." Not, "I will switch on the light for you" but "I am the light of the world." Not, "I will open the door," but "I am the door." Not, "I will show you the way," but "I am the way." Not, "I will teach you the truth," but "I am the truth." Not, "I will give you the light" – "I am the light." Now each of these "I am" statements require a response. None of them are passive.
In this inspiring series The ‘I AM' statements of Jesus, Charles Price challenges us to discover what does the "I am" mean in, "I am the bread of life", ‘I am the light of the world' and so on? And secondly, our participation—how do I eat the bread of life and become a beneficiary of it?

MESSAGE GUIDE: The Jesus You Never Noticed

Picture an iceberg, beautiful, majestic, white cascading peaks and points in the glimmering sunshine. But we see only a small portion above the surface, with nearly 90 percent floating below.
When you and I encounter each other, what do we see? Or rather how much do we really know about each other? Not very much! Our history, our environment, our struggles, our battles, our fears, and our sufferings. Some of these things might seem good, some might seem bad.
And what is true about us was true about Jesus taking on the form of a man. Combining all the events recorded in the initial four gospels, we discover only one month’s worth of information about Jesus’ life on earth. There is much we have no detail about.
In this eight part series entitled The Jesus You Never Noticed, Charles Price highlights many of the struggles Jesus experienced. “Through them all”, as expressed in the writer of Hebrews, “learning the greatest of all lessons.... Obedience.”

MESSAGE GUIDE: Isaiah: Calling People Home

The prophet Isaiah spent most of his life telling people things they needed to hear, but didn’t always like. Specifically he told them what’s wrong with the world, how God would pass His judgment, and then offer comfort and hope.
Prophecy is not defined by its content; it’s defined by its origin. This is the word of God. This is God speaking.
The role of Isaiah as a prophet was not an easy one, but a very necessary one. God spoke through him to His people.
Since the fall of man in the garden, we have been born into sin, continually violating God’s moral laws. God expresses His form of wrath and judgment by giving us our own free will. This leads to hardship, death and destruction.
But the good news is that God does not abandon us, but meets us in our sin. Through forgiveness and grace, He restores us and gives new life in Christ.
In this series, Charles Price provides many compelling examples of a restoring loving God meeting people in midst of their trouble and despair, who otherwise had no hope for the future.

MESSAGE GUIDE: Strength in Weakness

Why do bad things happen to good people?” Why are there diseases, addictions, endless failures, untimely deaths, broken relationships, and so many other heartbreaks? The Apostle Paul may very well have asked the same question.
Facing constant persecution, hardships, beatings, and imprisonment, Paul teaches that we as frail human beings are not sufficient in ourselves to solve our own problems, and were never intended to be. Our sufficiency is in the resurrection power of Jesus Christ. In this 9 part series entitled “Strength in Weakness” Charles Price states “There is no better friend than the hardships of life that keep us humble and dependant on God”.

Are you facing trouble and challenge today that you wish God would take away but He hasn’t? Then maybe it’s time to change your thinking. Through this series based on 2 Corinthians, Charles will help you discover an intimacy and dependence on a Living Christ. “There is strength in weakness”.

MESSAGE GUIDE: Nehemiah Series: Rebuilding the Walls

Nehemiah’s heart was broken, just like the city of Jerusalem. The walls had been broken down for 140 years – from 587 to around 444, which is when Nehemiah begins his work.
Not only had the walls of the city been broken down, but the hearts of people had become cold and hard, leading them down a Godless road of rebellion, disobedience and even slavery.
Today the vast majority of our world is no longer God fearing, and lives outside of Jesus Christ. Our cathedrals are now found in stock markets, entertainment districts, beauty salons and a myriad of other diversions.
Christians are losing their effectiveness in reaching people and making disciples as Christ intended. But there is hope, wonderful hope through people with broken hearts just like Nehemiah’s.
Charles Price through this 8 part Nehemiah series, convicts and challenges people to intercede for their world on “bent knees, wet eyes, and a broken heart!”
We don’t bring real benefit to others until God has opened our hearts in such a way that we feel the deep sorrow about the needs around us. And we have to be willing for our hearts to be broken for that to happen.

MESSAGE GUIDE: The Names of God: 8 Part Series

 Every living person has a name, and most of our names are fairly random. Some cultures place special significance to a name, others cultures name their children after parents, grandparents or celebrities.

Have you ever wondered why God has so many names… Jehovah Jireh “The Lord our Provider”, Jehovah Rapha “The Lord our Healer”, Jehovah Nissi “The Lord our Banner”, and many more?

In this 8 part series entitled “The Names of God” Charles Price reveals through scripture how all of God’s names are revealed to us through the context of His acts. When God intervened in peoples’ lives, he revealed a new name about Himself. You will be intrigued as Charles explains how God did not provide any of His names as mere pieces of information, but rather as an explanation of His presence and experience in the lives of those who encountered Him.

MESSAGE GUIDE: Ephesians 3: Disarming the Darkness

There are three essentials in warfare. You need to know your enemy; you need to know your equipment. And thirdly, you need to know your strategy. Our battle is against the world, the flesh and the devil.
What are we to do in this battle? The Bible says, “Just stand, take your stand.” We are not fighting to win, because the battle is already won. Our task is to stand in the midst of attack, and to stand our ground.

MESSAGE GUIDE: Ephesians 2: Growing up into Christ


Christianity is not just believing certain things and signing off on certain statements that we believe to be true. It is experiential; it is being the recipient of life. And that life is the presence of the Holy Spirit.

If we want to change our city—and we do—change our nation—and we do—change our world—and we do—it is not through our own strength but through God’s.

As God the Holy Spirit works in people’s lives and transforms, the outlook and perspective of our day changes. This is not something new! The world has lived in secular ages like this before and people have come back to seek after God.

Charles Price through his series on Ephesians 2, inspires Christians to live in the fullness of the Spirit in mutual submission. As a result individuals, families, communities and indeed the world will be changed and drawn closer to a living Christ.

MESSAGE GUIDE: Ephesians 1: Resources & Responsibilities


The book of Ephesians deals with the biggest need that we have in the spiritual realm, that being the feeling of inadequacy of resources to live the Christian life. We are drained and we are tired, and sometimes we feel as though we are pushing a bus up a hill.
But Christ is sufficient – His reactions, His kindness, His generosity, His love; His life in you is everything you need. At times we may be in situations that are not easy. We could be facing a mountain of trouble. What God has promised is not that He will remove every problem from our lives, but that He will be to us all that we need to see us through.

MESSAGE GUIDE: Ecclesiastes: Life Under the Sun

Solomon had known God but turned away from God in his later years and developed an outlook on life that was Godless and meaningless. You know some people do not finish well. We think our best years are behind us. We begin to take off some of the disciplines and the restraints that have been necessary to wholesome living. And Solomon's downfall was the old traps of sex and greed. You can't get more empty, more depressed than this. Ecclesiastes is a depressing book because it is written by a depressed man.
And the good thing about this book is that as Solomon explores all these avenues, as he writes all these despairing comments about a humanistic view of life, he comes back and at the end he says, this is the whole duty of man: "Fear God and keep his commandments."
The question is, "How are you spiritually?". Perhaps looking into this ancient book is like looking into a mirror where you say, "This is me". This shows courage and humility. Ecclesiastes wonderfully gives us the answer too "Remember your Creator".
In this inspiring six part series, Charles Price shares the hope that is the Word of God, and encourages His sheep to get back to God.

MESSAGE GUIDE: Living in the Will of God

The question "What is the will of God for my life?" is a valid question. But the first question should be "What is the will of God?" Period. Not "what is the will of God for me; what is the will of God for God? What is the big picture of what God is doing in the world of which I, as an individual, can have a part?"
My agenda in life, to be valid, must be an expression of God's agenda. My goals in life, to be valid, must be an expression of His goals.
Charles Price with his characteristic simplicity and deep insight into the word of God, will lead you in this nine part teaching series to understand the actual meaning of what does "Living in the will of God" mean in the light of God's strategy for you.

MESSAGE GUIDE: Baptism

There are two ordinances that were given to the New Testament church. An ordinance, by definition, is an outward physical act that portrays an inward spiritual experience. And the two ordinances given to us in the New Testament are namely Baptism and The Lord’s Supper. What these two events share in common is that they focus on the cross of Jesus Christ. They focus on His death and on His resurrection.

The act of Baptism, whereby somebody goes down into the water, is a picture of dying with Christ, being buried with Him, and then being rai

sed again to walk in newness of life. Many people become stagnant in their Christian walk, and miss out on this outward physical act of obedience. It is liberating to truly understand the significance of Baptism. In this compelling three part series, Charles Price connects our old life to the death and burial of Christ, and the new life we can experience through His resurrection power.

There is something in meeting people.
I want to talk to you about people who met Jesus, not because of the psychosomatic impact that He may have had on them.
But because of the impact He had on them, they didn’t just change what they knew and where they were at that time but had impact that transformed the very nature and identity of that person, not only for time, but where the response was positive, beyond time through eternity.

MESSAGE GUIDE: Exodus: Here Am I, Send Someone Else

The word Exodus literary means ‘the road out’. There are two stories being told simultaneously alongside each other. One is a historical story and the other spiritual. Moses was chosen by God in the Old Testament to deliver Israel from physical bondage; Christ was chosen in the New Testament as the deliverer of spiritual bondage. Both are remarkable stories of deliverance.
