KGF is committed to revealing the relevancy of the Bible in our everyday life.  Our weekly sermons seek to do just that, bringing our lives back in line with God's heart for us.  You are able to watch the messages here, as well as download full message transcripts, personal reflection notes & questions.  You can also watch all our video messages online here:   Or sign up for our podcast at Itunes, and get the most recent messages downloaded directly to your computer.

How does your faith hold up when it is tested, prodded, even ridiculed?  Is your commitment noticeable to those around you?  Does it make a difference in your everyday life?  

As we begin a new four-part series @ KGF entitled "Faith Under Fire", we turn our attention to lessons learned from the life of Daniel, a young man exiled in a foreign country, but who refused to let his faith grow silent in the midst of the fire!

Easter Sunday 2012 - He Is Risen!

Written by

“He is not here. . . He Is Risen!”

Those words change everything, the way we live life and face death. Easter is the culmination of God’s plan of salvation, walked out in Jesus, that you and I could come home to our Heavenly Father.

“Resurrection means the worst thing is never the last thing.” Frederick Buechner

“Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting? Thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 15:54-57

Good Friday 2012 - Light & Darkness

Written by

We can't celebrate the joy of resurrection Sunday until we walk through the darkness of Good Friday.  This service of shadows shows the cosmic collision of light & darkness on that first Good Friday.

Palm Sunday - Rocks Cry Out!

Written by

Here's the deal.  Jesus will be worshipped, whether we join in or not!  That's the message of Palm Sunday, this amazing little verse in Luke 19:40 “If they kept quiet, the stones along the road would burst into cheers!”  Do you get that?  He will be praised, whether we're part of the chorus or not.  Wow, goose bumps!  Let's begin the journey to the cross on this Palm Sunday.

I am so excited for what the Lord has in store for us as we wrap up our five week series “Fan or Follower”. 1 John has been our foundation for this series, and we conclude with these beautiful verses of eternal life. This life is found in one person alone, and His name is Jesus! As you can see, there are several practical next steps that will help move us from Fan to Follower! May the Spirit of God presence Himself among us in a powerful way!

Fan or Follower - Part 3 - Living in Love

Written by

As we continue our five part series on 1 John, we turn our attention to the issue of "love". John says as a follower of Jesus, love should always be our calling card. And the good news is the first thing you think of when you think of Christians is love, right?

Fan or Follower - Part 2 - Living in Two Worlds

Written by

How do we live in the world but not allow ourselves to fall in love with the world, at the expense of our love for God?  As we continue our five week series walking through the book of 1 John, Pastor Mike turns our attention to the danger of living in two worlds.  In the end, the issue is whether we will come to Jesus as Savior (Fan) or Lord (Follower).

Fan or Follower - Part 1 - Living in the Light

Written by

Are you a Fan of Jesus or a Follower of Jesus?  That is the overarching question that will be anchoring us as we walk through the book of 1 John.  These five chapters are packed full of descriptions of what it means to be a Follower, as opposed to a Fan.  In this, part 1, pastor Mike opens the conversation by looking at the difference between the two, and the clear call to follow!

Why Sponsoring a Child Matters!

Written by

Freshly back from Ecuador, Pastor Mike shares why it really makes a difference when you sponsor a child. We are blessed to be a blessing, and Compassion is such a tangible way to do just that!

If you didn't have the chance to sponsor a child this weekend, you can do so February 26th at KGF, and online at compassion.ca 

It has been recognized that the longest distance in the world is from the head to the heart and the second longest distance is from the heart to the hands.  In this message, Wayne Laurie reminds us that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is meant to be walked out in our day to day lives.  As a disciple, Jesus wants you to know him (Head), for you to love him and feel known by him (Heart), and to be his Hands in this world.

What kind of excuses have you used, or heard, to explain why people stay at arms length from Jesus?  As we wrap up our four week series "Reasonable Faith?", Pastor Mike turns our attention to the four main stumbling blocks to faith: tough questions, past negative experience, pride and guilt.

Pastor Mike and Dr. Chamberlain address several more questions you have submitted, including the idea that the God of the Old Testament is morally corrupt, how we know there is life beyond death, and whether faith is just a crutch for weak people.

How can you present Jesus in a pluralistic world without coming across as narrow or arrogant or intolerant?  That's the big idea that Dr. Paul Chamberlain spends much of the time with in part 2 of our Apologetics Workshop.  As well, you will discover the reason why our confidence in the scriptures is well placed.  At the end, Pastor Mike and Dr. Chamberlain address several more questions you have submitted, including the idea that the God of the Old Testament is morally corrupt, and whether faith is just a crutch for weak people.

Question Period with Dr. Paul Chamberlain

Written by

You've been submitting some great questions to us during our series "Reasonable Faith?" and here Dr. Paul Chamberlain and Pastor Mike Penninga look to address them head on. Some of the questions:

How can God be good and allow so much evil?
What about people who have never heard?
How can Jesus really be the only way?
