Teaching » Faith & Hope

The Book of Hebrews tells us to 'run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith'. Jesus is the first cause of our faith. He blazed the trail of faith, showing us what it means to trust our heavenly Father with our whole lives. Faith is precisely what sets us apart from the world. Faith lifts our eyes heavenward and onto the Kingdom of God. It sees what's possible, not what's impossible. It's the source of hope and the fuel for advancement.


Faith & Hope

Hebrews 11:1-6

Joe McSharry

What do you place your confidence in? Who are you allowing to shape your hope for the future? When did you truly put your faith in something or someone? Jesus is the first cause of our faith. He blazed the trail of faith, showing us what it means to trust our heavenly Father with our whole lives. Faith is precisely what sets us apart from the world. Faith lifts our eyes heavenward and onto the Kingdom of God, it sees what’s possible, not what’s impossible, it's the source of Hope and the fuel for advancement.

Hope as Expectation

Romans 4:18-25

Luc Sadler

What is hope? How is it different from expectation? In John Piper's sermon called 'What Is Hope?', he explains that biblical hope does not mean, ‘cross your fingers’, but rather ‘expect great things from God'. Biblical hope not only desires something good for the future; it expects it to happen. It not only expects it to happen; it is confident that it will happen.
