The first post of St Andrew's Church Blog. A test post to see what it looks like. The Blog has been started to engage with the community connected through the internet. The views expressed here are of a more personal nature, and aren't necessarily the views of St Andrew's, its congregation or the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa.
I hope that the posts firstly and most importantly give glory to God the Father, His son Jesus Christ the Saviour and The Holy Spirit! I also hope that they encourage and inspire all individuals in the community to come to a lasting relationship with Jesus. In all posts and comments please remember: whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, [blog, comment and] think about these things. Phillipians 4:8.
Don't take what is written in these posts as 'gospel'. That might sound a bit of a paradox, but I would urge you to test the post's message with the Bible: 1 Thessalonians 5:21 but test everything that is said. Hold on to what is good.
