Our Greatest Privilege
Rev. R. Kleyn

Hebrew 10:19-21
What is worship? We could define worship this way, as the fellowship of God with His people in Jesus Christ. From God’s point of view, worship is His work of gathering His people together so that they can enjoy His presence and so that He can find delight in them. So worship is the miracle of God bringing sinners into His holy presence. Listen to this message for more about this wonderful privilege.

Encouraged to Persevere
Rev. R. Kleyn

Hebrews 10:23

So, we are tempted to draw back, perhaps to hide our identity, to forsake Jesus Christ. And God’s Word is: “Go on, endure, persevere in your faith. Hold fast.”

Why go to Church?
Rev. R. Kleyn

Hebrews 10:25
Christianity today is marked by the evils of consumerism and individualism… the church is at risk for catering to these! Hebrews 10:25 warns against this “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another; and so much the more, as ye see th day approaching” What does this mean and why is it necessary?

The Necessity of Church Membership
Rev. R. Kleyn

Hebrews 10:19-25
To be a member of a church is more than simply finding a church that you like and attending there regularly so that you get to know the other people who go to church there and become comfortable in that setting. Many churches today offer something like that… just come, everyone is welcome… and do not exercise any censure of anything in your personal life. So what is a proper view of church membership?
