Our God is an Awesome God!
As winter works out it's magical qualities and the days start to get longer again, we are reminded that any day now we will be seeing the new life of Spring.
For some, however, New Life in Christ has already arrived as God demonstrates His mighty power to change us.
If you want to know what New Life in Christ looks like and how it could effect you, CHURCH@Claremont has many people who will be pleased to tell you about the thrill of being born-again and living a life filled with the power of God's Holy Spirit.
New Year - New Life?
2019 could be the year that your life changes beyond recognition by choosing to allow Jesus Christ to lead you in the new life that God has already planned for you. The bible calls it becoming a New Creation - and you can't get more radical than that!
Many of our church members will be pleased to tell you how their lives have radically changed since they made a decision to follow Jesus Christ. Here are just a few examples:
There's no doubt that Jesus is really alive today and really changes our lives around - if we will let Him!
- The man with a history of drink and drug related violence, who now spends all his spare time helping others for whom life hasn't worked out too well.
- The person who knew from an early age that he was good for nothing - but found fulfilment and success when he allowed Jesus Christ to lead him.
- The woman who truly believed that she was stupid and inadequate, because her parents told her so as a child, who is now highly regarded by all who know her.
- The person with an incurable drinking habit who was set free in an instant by Jesus Christ and no longer needs or craves alcohol.
- The businessman who sold out to Christ and found that he can be successful without resorting to dishonesty or smart accounting.
- The singer / songwriter who loves to sing for Jesus first.
(It's not about obeying rules.) ... What counts is whether we have been transformed into a new creation. (Galatians 6:15 NLT)
A Sense of Expectation!
There is a real sense of expectation that God is doing something special in the church. Almost weekly we see demonstrations of His mighty power and sense His presence as we worship Him. People are excited to go to church!
Church is meant to be an example to everyone of what life could be like if we allowed Jesus Christ to lead us. During these difficult times, our country and the world need good leadership more than ever before. Let's join together in praying for our leaders - even if we don't agree with everything they do or say!
LETS BE READY!

" … when you see people praying and prayers being answered week after week, it makes you think.”
Will Jesus Christ really return?
When Jesus Christ returned to Heaven He promised that He would come back for all who follow Him. He said that the whole world " ... will see the Son of Man (that's what Jesus called Himself) coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory ... and he will send out his angels with the mighty blast of a trumpet, and they will gather his chosen ones from all over the world—from the farthest ends of the earth and heaven". (Matthew 24:30-31 NLT)
Jesus said that no-one, not even He Himself, knew the date that His Father in Heaven would choose for Him to return - but that we should always be prepared!
The best way to prepare is to start immediately to follow Jesus Christ, to join an active church near you, to read the bible (God's Word to us) and to pray. CHURCH@Claremont will be pleased to guide you on that journey - but don't delay, He could come today!
Be Expectant - not Fearful!
For the Christian, the return of Jesus Christ is just the beginning of an amazing adventure culminating in the revelation of a completely New Heaven and a New Earth, where sin, decay, sickness, famine, fear and death no longer have a place. That's not a threat - it's an amazing promise!
It’s About People!
CHURCH@Claremont is all about real people who have found that life works better when we allow Jesus Christ to lead us. We are everyday folk with everyday lifestyles who simply love to tell our stories to anyone who will listen. Find out what it means to really be loved by Jesus Christ and by His followers. Join us at 10:30 each Sunday.
“For God loved the world so much that He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent His Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through Him”. (Jesus Christ, from John 3:16-17 NLT)
