To really understand the good news of the Kingdom, and to be able to explain to others what we believe about God and how He is re-creating our world, we have to first understand how He designed our world in the first place. In this message, we will consider creation, and look at how it answers important questions we as human beings typically ask; W…

Picture this: you have a good conversation with a friend who is not a Christian, and somehow an opportunity comes your way to share about your faith. How do you share the Gospel in 5 minutes? Many would be tempted to draw two hills with a chasm in between, man on one side, God on the other, and the cross in between. For many of us, the heart of the…

You are not a self, you are a soul. The self is not a sufficient life-center, but the soul is. Dallas Willard said: “If your soul is healthy, no external circumstance can destroy your life. If your soul is unhealthy, no external circumstance can redeem your life.” How can our soul truly be healthy? And what should we do to protect it?…

In this series, we are not going to focus so much on the what of those practices, but try to dig deeper into Biblical values and truths that undergird our healthy habits. Why do we come to a new year with resolutions to eat healthy, exercise more, read more, grow in our relationship with God and things like that? Why should we aspire to live health…

Did Jesus come to bring peace to the earth, or to start a revolution? Was He a peace-maker or a trouble-maker? We usually talk about Christmas in soft and peaceful terms. But in this message, Koen will show how the Incarnation was in fact a declaration of war against the empire darkness, and how celebrating Christmas still holds that same power tod…

Peace on earth? Yeah... not this Christmas. There are currently 32 armed conflicts in the world, and with all the anxiety and burnout we can't say that people really have a sense of internal peace either. In this message, we will walk through the three dimensions of Advent - remembering with thankfulness that Christ came as the Prince of Peace, loo…

What is the church's relationship with Israel? And how should we, as the people of God's Kingdom position ourselves in a time when the ongoing conflict in Israel-Palestine is escalating once again? In this message, we're trying to give you a Biblical framework for looking at the current situation, to help you to look at it in a nuanced way, and und…

Like Israel during the exile, taking on your priestly role empowers you to live as a stranger in a non-believing society. In this sermon we explore three aspects of this priestly attitude, so that you can find practical ways to worship and live differently in this world, while still not being of this world.…

In this message series that we have called “In the world, not of the world”, we are going to discuss four different postures or roles that will help us to fulfil this purpose Jesus has for us in this world. Today, we are talking about our roles as exiles, connecting to Jeremiah's prophetic words in his letter to the exiles, and the work of Tim Kell…

In the recent past, we have often heard the term, “already-not yet”. What does ‘already-not yet’ mean for our hear and now? In today's sermon, I speak about what does it mean for us to engage with our present world in light of the already-not-yet kingdom reality. I believe that as a new creation, we relate to the world in at least three different w…

The life of a disciple of Jesus, including all its rhythms and practices – such as we are discussing in this sermon series – are never only about the individual’s flourishing. Not only are those who eat the fruit of your flourishing relationship with God the main beneficiaries of your spiritual formation. The journey of spiritual formation itself, …

Fasting and praying is just something we are called to do out of faith and obedience. And there is something that fasting unlocks, something that we access, something that Fasting is a mighty weapon God has given us to amplify our prayers, to be heard on high and to hear from on high. And perhaps the best thing for us to do is not to try and unders…

John Wesley once said: “Why are we not more holy? Because we are enthusiasts that want the ends without the means." Growing in holiness is a lifelong journey. And the practices – including fasting – provide the pathway on that journey to continue to grow and work out your salvation. In this message we are going to explore how fasting helps us in bo…

This is the opening message of a four part series with Practicing the Way about Fasting. Every world religion, and even Western non-religious spirituality recognises the physical and spiritual benefits of fasting. Also as Christians, we stand in a long tradition of fasting; the prophets, the apostles, the church fathers, the saints, reformers and r…

In this sermon I discuss what it means to be a disciple of Jesus, and to follow the Practices of Jesus in our 21st century world. I focus on the Call to discipleship, the Practices of a disciple, and the Why of discipleship. This sermon specifically gives an overview of the call to Discipleship that we, as a church, are embracing. It is the path we…

True change starts with a deep change on the inside. Instead of throwing all our willpower and resources at changing the 'what', it should start with the 'why' - a purpose, a motivation, a perspective. In his letter to the Corinthians, Paul gives us a very powerful 'why' for growing in Christlikeness. As he talks about putting on the new self like …

The Colossean church had a big problem with two different cultural powers that were distracting them from their new life in Christ; the gnostics with their elaborate philosophies and rituals, and the zealous Jewish Christians who thought that also Gentile believers should live by the law of Moses. Paul tells the church in Colossae, in no uncertain …

When the New Testament talks about us being ‘in Christ’ it is talking about that full new reality after grace – a new position, a new function, a new purpose, a new qualification. Being ‘in Christ’ is our new identity. And that identity is something that we are learning to live out as we are growing in discipleship. In this message Koen explores fu…

Colossians 1:15-23 boldly declares that Jesus is the first, and the last, the genesis and the telos, the origin and the purpose, the beginning and the end. He is before all things and above all things. He is at the center of everything and holds everything together. In this series, as we are learning about what it means to be a Gospel Community fro…

The Lord is shaping us into a Gospel community, breathing in and breathing out the Good News of the Kingdom. Paul wrote a letter to the Colossians, a group of Christians he never met, but heard good reports about, with some solid advice on how to move forward to grow and bear fruit. This is the opening message of a five-part series discovering from…

Ephesians tells us to make the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Matthijs den Dekker, today's speaker, has a hard time opening his eyes for the evil in this world. It means allowing anger and allow feeling powerless. This sermon explores these emotions and tries to find ways to not close off for the evil in our times.…

Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we can do all kinds of 'cool' stuff. But as we are wrapping up this series, it is important to also talk about a less 'cool' but very real other quality that we receive through the Spirit; the power to endure. Enduring is not something that we look forward to in our faith. In this sermon Jan Achterberg will dis…

Our understanding of the Gospel is far too individualistic and far too narrow. Through various developments in theology, sociology and culture, we have primarily come to understand the Gospel as a message about personal salvation; grace + faith = going to heaven when you die. But the Gospel is much more than that. The Gospel of Jesus Christ, the go…

At Vineyard, we believe that Jesus transferred His Kingdom ministry to His disciples and to the church. This means that we are called to do everything that Jesus did through the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit wants to partner with us to bring God’s Kingdom to people, and this includes miraculous healing of physical, emotional and spiritu…

Why do we keep the best news in the world hidden like a dirty little secret? In this message, we are going to take a master-class in personal evangelism from Philip the Evangelist. The story about how he led the Ethiopian official to a decision for Jesus will help us to become more confident in sharing the gospel, and open to the voice of the Spiri…

The first church was an international church consisting of Jews and proselytes from every nation under heaven that temporarily resided in Jerusalem. Yet, they experienced an incredible sense of unity. Meeting together around the table – where all are equal and united, where food was shared and stories were told, everyone had a place and a unique co…

In this series, we have talked about some very beautiful and important things. But there is an essential piece of the puzzle that's been missing; the Holy Spirit. In this series, there is also one essential puzzle piece that is still missing, but will be uncovered today; the Holy Spirit. Without the work of the Holy Spirit, nothing of what is theol…

What we believe about our destiny greatly impacts our discipleship. To understand well how we should live today, we have to have a good understanding of where God is moving our world. In theology, this is called eschatology. And eschatology is hotly debated within the Christian world. In this message, we explore the four different systems of interp…

In this message, we will trace back what it means to be the people of God with two terms: covenant and kingdom. We are going to discover how God purposed His people, Israel to be His covenant and kingdom people, how the covenant was broken and the kingdom lost, how it is restored and repurposed in Jesus and what that all means for us today.…

In this message, we look at our relationship with God, relationship with others and relationship with the earth in four different realities described in the Bible; the original reality, the distorted reality, the new reality and the future. Follow the storyline of Scripture and discover what the restoration of these relationships means for our miss…

The modern understanding of self has become highly psychologized. No one else can tell you who you truly are and what you should do. As long as you don’t limit anyone else’s freedom, you ought to have complete freedom to do, say, feel, and be what you want. What we see happening though in a world that holds these views on discovering your authentic…

In this message we take a birds-eye view of how the topic of image-bearing runs through the whole of Scripture. Secondly, we will zoom in on the aspect of image-bearing as male and female, the male and female nature of the church and how this is translated to how we do ministry in the Vineyard.Alex ten Cate által

On Easter Sunday we launched a new sermon series that will continue until Pentecost Sunday. In this series we will study the Kingdom of God in light of the Resurrection. We will discover how Easter changed everything forever. The Resurrection is the kick-start of His big renovation project. Through His Resurrection power He is renewing our lives, s…

When Mary, sister of Lazarus, a week before Easter anointed the feet of Jesus, this was the most extravagant expression of love and honour she could think of. Could it be that the most valuable thing that we have to offer to our Lord today is actually our time and attention? And could it be that, giving that time and attention to our loving Father,…

If everything you prayed for this last week would happen in this coming week, would anyone notice?You and I, we are invited by the Living God to partner with Him in prayer, to see His Kingdom come to earth, and to let His will be done on earth as it is in heaven. A word that is often used for this type of prayer is “intercession” which gives this p…

Any move of God in history, great or small, famous or not, was prepared through prayer, ignited by prayer, sustained by prayer and led to more prayer. Prayer is the fuel for anything that God is doing in this world – on a personal, local, national or global level. Therefore it is impossible to overstate the importance of developing a strong prayer …

The Sabbath is the set-apart day for the set-apart people of God to cultivate their set-apartness in this world. We are called to live a life of worship, to live as a people wholly devoted to God, living out the character of Christ. But it is that set-apart day that we use to cultivate that set-apartness through shifting our attention from all the …

The Sabbath is meant to be the best day of the week, filled with joy and laughter, with good friends and great people. The Sabbath serves us as a weekly celebration of all that is good about God, the world and life itself. Celebration, embracing joy, embracing all that is good in the world, enjoying the fellowship of believers, even if it is just f…

Sabbath is a key-stone habit to resist a culture of restlessness. The combination of insatiable desires in our heart and a consumption-driven digital economy constantly drives us to want more, have more, be more. Sabbath invites us to leave the tyrannical system of more and experience a deep satisfaction in God, so that our soul can find rest in Hi…

Sabbath answers a deep need in our soul that is wasting away under the constant demand and activity and the inner and outer expectations to always be busy. In this message, we do a quick run through Scripture to discover the purpose of Sabbath. In the coming three weeks, we'll take a deeper dive into Sabbath as a way to Stop, Rest, Delight and Wors…

What is the single most important quality of any team, band, group, community or political party, that will ensure success? Unity. Any united effort needs a deep sense of unity around a common vision and goal in order to flourish. And the book of Nehemiah is jam-packed with lessons for what it means to operate in unity. In this message, Koen will r…

The report about the state of the city of Jerusalem broke Nehemiah's heart. For days he could do nothing but weep and pray. This became his calling experience. He understood that God was sending him to Jerusalem to lead the rebuilding project. What is your heart breaking for? As we set out on a new year, what is the Spirit's invitation to you?…
