  • INTO THE DEEP (John 21:1-14) - “I Will Make You Fishers of Men…” January 29, 2016

    INTO THE DEEP (John 21:1-14) - “I Will Make You Fishers of Men…” January 29, 2016

    31/01/2017 Duración: 36min

    When Jesus began His earthly ministry, He miraculously gave the Apostles a great catch of fish and afterward called them saying, ‘follow Me, I will make you fishers of men.’ At the end of His earthly ministry, He did a similar miracle where He directed the Apostles to another large catch of fish. With these miracles, Jesus reminds us of our mission as a church to reach out to as many people as we can with the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. As we continue our ‘Into the Deep’ series about who we are and what we will do as a church, we’ll talk about how we will reach out to our community. Please make a special effort to listen to this series, so that we are united as we move into 2017.

    INTO THE DEEP (Luke 5:1-11 ) - “They Left Everything and Followed Him” January 22, 2016

    24/01/2017 Duración: 37min

    We call ourselves West City Fellowship, but what does that mean? As a church, God calls us together in a common salvation and He gives us a common mission. As we continue our series, “Into the Deep,” we’ll talk about who we are, what we will attempt for the Kingdom of God, and how each of us has a unique but vital role to play. If you missed last week, please take a few minutes to listen to the message so that we are all aligned as we move into 2017.

  • INTO THE DEEP (Luke 5:1-11 ) - “Put Out Again…” January 15, 2016

    INTO THE DEEP (Luke 5:1-11 ) - “Put Out Again…” January 15, 2016

    18/01/2017 Duración: 34min

    The Bible tell us of a time when the Apostles had been fishing all night but had caught nothing. Jesus tells them to put out again into the deep water and let down their nets for a catch. Though they were weary, skeptical, and frustrated, they obeyed Jesus’ command. Their obedience led to worship they had never experienced before. As we launch out into 2017, God has a vision for our young church. We’ll share that vision over the next few weeks, so please join us Sunday as we begin a new vision series called “Into the Deep.”

    Listen to a special message delivered by Joe O'Leska. Joe was recently confirmed as an Elder at West City.

  • MARANATHA (Isaiah 8:19-9:7) - “A Child is Born” December 18, 2016

    MARANATHA (Isaiah 8:19-9:7) - “A Child is Born” December 18, 2016

    20/12/2016 Duración: 29min

    We conclude our Advent series in the prophecy of Isaiah by celebrating the prophecy of Messiah Jesus’ birth.

  • MARANATHA (Isaiah 52:13-53:12) - “Messiah on Earth” December 11, 2016

    MARANATHA (Isaiah 52:13-53:12) - “Messiah on Earth” December 11, 2016

    12/12/2016 Duración: 41min

    The prophet Isaiah prophesied about Jesus' earthly ministry around 700 years before Jesus was born. His predictions about Jesus' life, death, and resurrection are truly astounding and can be a great reinforcement of our confidence in what the Bible tells us. Sunday we continued our Advent series "Maranatha" leading up to the celebration of Jesus' birth.

  • MARANATHA (Isaiah 31, 36, 37) - “The Time Between” December 4, 2016

    MARANATHA (Isaiah 31, 36, 37) - “The Time Between” December 4, 2016

    07/12/2016 Duración: 43min

    As we anticipate the celebration of the arrival of the Lord at the birth of Jesus, we are reminded that we live in the period between His first coming and His second coming. During this period, we can sometimes feel as if God is very far away. This can tempt us to trust in things that would lead us away from God. King Hezekiah experienced the temptation to abandon the promises of God that had come through the prophet Isaiah and take things into his own hands. Sunday, we saw how Hezekiah handled this temptation, and we talked about what we can learn about times when waiting on God tempts us to try to go around Him.

  • MARANATHA (Isaiah 65:17-25) - “New Heavens and New Earth” November 27, 2016

    MARANATHA (Isaiah 65:17-25) - “New Heavens and New Earth” November 27, 2016

    28/11/2016 Duración: 37min

    The Advent season is when we anticipate the celebration of the birth of Jesus, where God came to be with us on this earth. During its communion services, the early church would often declare ‘Maranatha,’ which can mean ‘The Lord has come’ or ‘may the Lord come.’ The Lord has come in the birth of Jesus, yet someday He will come again to usher in our eternity with Him. This advent season is a reminder that we should declare both things. On Sunday, we began a new series exploring this tension using the Old Testament prophecy of Isaiah.

  • Matthew 25:1-13 - “Preparation” November 20, 2016

    Matthew 25:1-13 - “Preparation” November 20, 2016

    21/11/2016 Duración: 24min

    The holiday season has begun. We are approaching Thanksgiving, then Christmas, and then New Years. With so many plans, traditions, and experiences on our plates it can be very difficult to navigate. What do we do when? What can't we do? And so on. This Sunday we look at the coming month through the lens of a parable. And armed with the timeless wisdom of Christ, prepare ourselves for the holidays.

  • JOY! (Philippians 4:10-23) - “Joy in Giving” November 13, 2016

    JOY! (Philippians 4:10-23) - “Joy in Giving” November 13, 2016

    15/11/2016 Duración: 34min

    In God’s wisdom, there is great blessing and joy when we give. Of course, that means that there are also those who receive. The Apostle Paul explains that when we give and receive with the right perspective, joy abounds for all and God is glorified. We discussed this Sunday as we concluded our series JOY! series in Philippians.

  • JOY! (Philippians 4:1-9) - “Joy in the Persevering” November 06, 2016

    JOY! (Philippians 4:1-9) - “Joy in the Persevering” November 06, 2016

    08/11/2016 Duración: 37min

    Last week, we spoke about how climbing higher up the mountain (i.e. growing closer to Jesus and becoming more like Him) is a great source of joy. But as we climb, there are many things that try to knock us down off the mountain and steal our joy – things like conflict with others, worry, and worldly distractions. Therefore, it important to learn to persevere in the face of those things. When they knock us down our joy is stolen. But when we persevere, our joy remains.

    Post New Episode | Reorder JOY! (Philippians 3:12-21) - “Joy in the Growing” October 30, 2016

    02/11/2016 Duración: 37min

    Last week we discussed how we are not made righteous by what we do or do not do, but rather by what Christ has done for us. But does that mean we can do anything we want? In fact, the Apostle Paul tells us not to take grace for granted by becoming spiritually complacent. Rather, there is great joy when we actively seek to know Jesus more and become more like Him.

  •  JOY! (Philippians 3:1-11) - “Joy in the Gospel” October 23, 2016

    JOY! (Philippians 3:1-11) - “Joy in the Gospel” October 23, 2016

    24/10/2016 Duración: 40min

    By many standards, the Apostle Paul was a very “good” person. Yet, he said that he would gladly give up his good record in order to be fully dependent upon Jesus’ good record. In fact, Paul said that this is the only way he could really ‘know’ Jesus. So, what did Paul mean by that? We talk about it this, as we get back into our JOY! series in the letter to the Philippians.

  •  The Pillar and the Dance (Discussion with Pastor Andrew Nguri from Nyahururu, Kenya) - “Can God Help Me When I’m in Pain?”

    The Pillar and the Dance (Discussion with Pastor Andrew Nguri from Nyahururu, Kenya) - “Can God Help Me When I’m in Pain?”

    18/10/2016 Duración: 45min

    As we finish our series ‘The Pillar and the Dance,’ we will discuss the question, ‘Can God help me when I am in pain?’ We discuss this topic with Pastor Andrew Nguri from Nyahururu, Kenya. Pastor Andrew sees a lot of suffering as he ministers to some of the most forgotten and suffering people in his city. We ask him how he responds to this question when speaking with those who suffer.

  •  The Pillar and the Dance (James 2:1-13) - “Why Does God Care about the Poor and Oppressed?”

    The Pillar and the Dance (James 2:1-13) - “Why Does God Care about the Poor and Oppressed?”

    11/10/2016 Duración: 35min

    Most of us would say that we care about the poor and the oppressed. But have you ever thought about why you feel that way? What motivates our caring for the poor and oppressed? How reliable are these motivations? How pure are these motivations? We explore the reasons why God cares about the poor and oppressed and how this should impact how we think about them.

  • The Pillar and the Dance (Exodus 20:1-6) - “Is It Possible to Worship Something Other Than God?”

    The Pillar and the Dance (Exodus 20:1-6) - “Is It Possible to Worship Something Other Than God?”

    04/10/2016 Duración: 41min

    Is it possible to worship anything other than God? People might be surprised at the answer and how significantly it impact their lives – even though they might not be aware of it! So, invite some friends to join us as we continue with our Pillar and the Dance series.

  • The Pillar and the Dance (Luke 18:9-14) - “Is there anything unique about Christianity?” September 25, 2016

    The Pillar and the Dance (Luke 18:9-14) - “Is there anything unique about Christianity?” September 25, 2016

    26/09/2016 Duración: 41min

    This Sunday we had our official launch service at Minnie Howard School and began our series, "The Pillar and the Dance," with the sermon "Is there anything unique about Christianity?"

  • JOY! (Philippians 2:12-2:18) - “Joy in Serving” September 18, 2016

    JOY! (Philippians 2:12-2:18) - “Joy in Serving” September 18, 2016

    19/09/2016 Duración: 38min

    Sometimes the idea of serving others is not very appealing – especially if that service involves something we don’t especially like to do. But the Bible teaches that serving others is actually a way we worship God. And any time we worship God, we experience joy. The key to joy in serving then is learning to serve as an act of worship.

  • JOY! (Philippians 1:27-2:11) - “Joy in Humility” September 11, 2016

    JOY! (Philippians 1:27-2:11) - “Joy in Humility” September 11, 2016

    13/09/2016 Duración: 39min

    When we think about humility, is it something we enthusiastically want to embrace or something we reluctantly concede we have to pursue? There are many reasons that we might feel a little cautious about humility. But, the Apostle Paul wrote to the Philippians that humility, if properly understood, is not only critical for a healthy church but is also a source of great joy.

  • JOY! (Philippians 1:12-26) - “Joy in Adversity” August 28, 2016

    JOY! (Philippians 1:12-26) - “Joy in Adversity” August 28, 2016

    29/08/2016 Duración: 38min

    Most of us face difficult circumstances at some point in our lives – and sometimes what we are facing is REALLY difficult. These times can suck the joy right out of us. We can even wonder if we will ever experience joy again. This Sunday, we’ll see how the Apostle Paul was able to experience joy while in a prison cell facing a possible death sentence. There is much we can learn about finding joy in the midst of adversity. Please join us Sunday as we continue with our JOY! series in the letter to the Philippians.
