Ditch Digging Faith
Sunday, December 2, 2018 • December 2, 2018 • David Goh
God will call us to take first steps in faith and obedience towards a future only He can complete. If we only commit to what we know we have the personal capacity to complete, we will never try anything new, expand our territory, or experience miracles, because all these aren’t based on the certainty of past success, but on faith in God’s character and promises. If it is going to last, everything we build in our lives or as a church must start with a foundation of faith, not human talent, ability or natural resources. That is why God will call us at the beginning to take steps of faith at the start of anything significant in our lives. Risk, uncertainty and the unknown are actually an important part of a sure foundation! Join us as Pastor David shares the Word. We pray the Lord encounters and blesses you through this message!
Sisters and Brothers: Embracing True Identity Part 3
Sunday, November 25, 2018 • November 25, 2018 • David Goh
God is calling us to live in the authority we share with Jesus, so injustice and sickness are expelled from our land, and the threats to the next generation are overcome. As the brothers and sisters of Jesus, we have been made co-heirs of his authority. However, this position as kings and queens in God’s kingdom is not so we can serve ourselves and lord it over others. God’s authority is given us to serve the most hurting and heal the most broken. We need the authority of a king, the humility of a slave, and the heart of Jesus. Join us as Pastor David continues our sermon series. We pray the Lord encounters and blesses you through this message!

Sisters and Brothers: Embracing True Identity Part 2
Sunday, November 11, 2018 • November 11, 2018 • Timothy Berry
We are continuing our series on Sisters and Brothers: Embracing True Identity. Since Jesus is our older brother and God is our Father, being a brother to Jesus and a son/daughter to the Father makes us now part of a royal bloodline. Much of the Christian life is learning how to identify ourselves with an amazing upgrade to blessings! With an upgrade of being a royal family member comes with a higher standard of honor in our thinking, speech and conduct among God’s family. Let’s learn to honor our King, honor our fellow royal heirs, and honor God’s lost family by upgrading our lifestyle to match our older brother, Jesus. Join us as Pastor Timothy continues our sermon series. We pray the Lord encounters and blesses you through this message!
Sisters and Brothers: Embracing True Identity Part 1
Sunday, November 4, 2018 • November 4, 2018 • David Goh
We are starting a new series at the Garden, Sisters and Brothers: Embracing True Identity. So much of our joyfulness in life and confidence in God’s assignments depends on which thoughts we embrace. This week, we will look at how Jesus is not ashamed to call us his brothers and sisters in the presence of angels, declares that he trusts us, and releases us from the worst of fears. Let’s learn to agree with his voice, and stop listening to the voices of negativity, rejection and anxiety. Join us as Pastor David begins a new sermon series. We pray the Lord encounters and blesses you through this message!

Worship First: Face to Face
Sunday, October 21, 2018 • October 21, 2018 • David Goh
As we draw our study on King David’s Tabernacle to a close, we will share together an alternating word and worship experience. As we prioritize worship first, we discover like King David that God chooses to dwell with us so we can have a growing face to face relationship with Him! We will look at the biblical invitation that shows God’s heart for us, and then move into times of worship to experience the loving face of our Savior and our Bridegroom.
Worship First: The Anointing of Community
Sunday, October 14, 2018 • October 14, 2018 • David Goh
Those who seek to host God’s presence (Psalm 132) must also dwell together in unity (Psalm 133). Unity is as the priestly anointing oil, and the mountain snowpack that recharges the river of God’s presence. “The measuring stick for success in a worship team…is how much family is being produced.” It’s not how well we sing the songs we sing, but the community we live together, that causes others to respond to God’s invitation to eternal life. Join us as Pastor David continues our sermon series Worship First: The Anointing of Community. We pray the Lord encounters and blesses you through this message!
Worship First: Then His Gifts
Sunday, October 7, 2018 • October 7, 2018 • Timothy Berry
After King David blessed God, he emerged from the tabernacle and gave blessings to the people of Israel. In the same way, when the wise men worshipped Jesus first, then the gifts were opened. As we host God’s glorious presence, bowing our hearts to honor Him, His generosity releases to us the blessings of provision, healing and wisdom. “My God will supply all your needs out of his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” If we desire a greater release of spiritual gifts, wisdom from above, or supernatural resources, worship first! Join us as Pastor Timothy continues our sermon series Worship First: Then His Gifts. We pray the Lord encounters and blesses you through this message!
Worship First: Creativity Follows
Sunday, September 30, 2018 • September 30, 2018 • David Goh
Worship at King David’s Tabernacle created new songs, new instruments, and new styles of music. It brought together both the skill of prepared musicians, and the spontaneity of prophetic inspiration. As we believe for the fulfillment of God’s promise to restore worship as in King David’s time, if we worship first, creativity will follow: creativity in our expressions of worship, and a creativity in our personal journey of faith. Join us as Pastor David continues our sermon series Worship First: Creativity Follows. We pray the Lord encounters you and blesses you through this message!
Worship First: At the Throne of Grace
Sunday, September 23, 2018 • September 23, 2018 • David Goh
After setting up the worship center around God’s manifested presence, King David abused his power as he forced himself upon a woman and then murdered her husband. Why did his story in Scripture not simply end at this point? Faced with the consequence of his action, he went to the Tabernacle of God’s presence and bowed in worship. Every leader fails - whether in personal weakness, in relationships, in decisions and direction - but worship at the throne of grace is the first step to recovery. God’s presence is not hosted by perfect people, but by imperfect people who have learned to worship on the road to restoration. Join us as Pastor David continues our sermon series Worship First: At the Throne of Grace. We pray the Lord encounters you and blesses you through this message!
Worship First: The Protocol of Sacrifice
Sunday, September 16, 2018 • September 16, 2018 • David Goh
King David discovered that sincerity and joyful celebration were not enough. He learned from the failure of his first attempt to bring up the Ark of God’s presence that there is a divine protocol for true worship: sacrifice. In the second attempt, the Ark was brought up by the holy priests, and atoning sacrifice made. This made David’s worship even more joyful as he spun and danced before the Lord. The sacrifice of Jesus has made a joyful way of grace for us to engage the very presence of God, but honoring it must always be central to our expression of worship. Join us as Pastor David continues our sermon series, Worship First: The Protocol of Sacrifice. We pray the Lord encounters you and blesses you through this message!

The Spirit and Community
Sunday, September 2, 2018 • September 2, 2018 • David Goh
God is a community of love and glory - Father, Son and Spirit are One. The Spirit is at work to answer Jesus’ prayer, “Father, make them one, even as you and I are one.” Our families and the Church is to display a unity through growing in divine love and forgiveness that reveals this mystery of God to a world torn apart through division, misunderstanding and hatred. Join us as Pastor David preaches on The Spirit of the Trinity: The Spirit and Community. We pray this message blesses you!
The Spirit of Power
Sunday, August 26, 2018 • August 26, 2018 • Timothy Berry
Jesus modeled for us what a normal, supernatural lifestyle is supposed to look like with an awareness of the Spirit of God and an intimate relationship with the Father. His experience of the Spirit empowered him for a ministry of speaking and demonstration of God's kingdom influencing the people and kingdoms of earth. We also need to be empowered by the Holy Spirit to overcome the powers of darkness and to actively destroy those works through radical love and power. We invite you to learn and grow in experiencing the Spirit's empowerment in our ministry school called GSKM where we will teach and equip you to begin to walk in the same supernatural lifestyle that Jesus modeled. Join us as Pastor Timothy wraps up our sermon series with The Spirit of the Trinity: The Spirit of Power. We are expectant for God to move in power and signs and wonder. We pray that you experience a powerful encounter with God through this message, bless you!
The Spirit of Life
Sunday, August 19, 2018 • August 19, 2018 • Timothy Berry
The Holy Spirit is the breath and life of God; the Spirit knows even the depths of God! In Christ, believers again receive a fresh breath of new life when God’s Spirit fills us as a new creation. At the same time the Spirit’s power helps us enforce the victory of the cross against the evil schemes of the enemy. The Spirit gives us the ability to gain a higher perspective by giving us access to the love of the Father and to see through the eyes of Jesus towards ourselves and others. Join us as Pastor Timothy teaches on The Spirit of Life as we continue our sermon series, The Spirit of the Trinity. Let us continue to seek the Lord for a fresh drink and a fresh breath of the Holy Spirit daily, blessings!
The Spirit of Jesus: Transforming Kindness
Sunday, August 12, 2018 • August 12, 2018 • David Goh
It is the Spirit of Jesus who fills us with the power to change our hearts, minds and actions. When you are frustrated or overwhelmed, don’t throw up your hands and give up. Instead, we get to throw up our hands in worship. We can get so frustrated with our past attempts to change for the better that we just settle for trying to hide or manage what’s really happening within. But it is the Spirit of Jesus who fills us with the power for true transformation! Join us as Pastor David continues our sermon series and teaches on The Spirit of Jesus: Transforming Kindness. Blessings!
The Spirit of the Father: Love Not Shame
Sunday, August 5, 2018 • August 5, 2018 • David Goh
The Holy Spirit causes us to experience God the Father’s love for us, giving us hope in place of our shame. Jesus took upon himself our shame. Getting free from the power of shame through experiencing God’s love releases courage, creativity, innovation, risk, joy, and fun! Join us as Pastor David starts our new sermon series and teaches on The Spirit of the Father: Love Not Shame.
Missions: Empowered for a Purpose Part 3
Sunday, July 29, 2018 • July 29, 2018 • Timothy Berry
Focused: Vision Flourishes in the Soil of Shalom
Sunday, February 4, 2018 • February 4, 2018 • David Goh
Jesus taught us that we desire 30%, 60% or 100% productivity, it is as important to tend the soil as it is to tend the plant. We must fight the distractions of anxiety, treating finances as a god, and the draw of other interests (Mark 4:18-19). Vision flourishes in the soil of shalom - the God-connected life where peace, well-being, calm, prosperity and security provide a place for vision to grow and thrive.
