We preach that Christ is altogether lovely
and sin altogether filthy.
Spirit of Life Church gets its name from Romans 8:2, “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.”We are a small congregation from many nations trusting to live by His Word and His Spirit, the transformed life that was purchased for us by the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ our Saviour.Our church, the family of believers, is based in the heart of a vibrant and colourful part of Bristol. Our congregation come together to worship in one location from many different parts of Bristol both rural and urban. There are also those who make the journey from other counties as well. We love the fact the word “church” is on our sign board because it speaks of who and what we are. Scripture conveys God’s heart to us concerning the church and we find that phenomenal. We love that in the church older men are role models to younger men. We love that in the church older women admonish younger women to love their husbands and be homemakers. We love that in the church children are instructed in the way they should go and not in the way they want to go. Our biblical picture of church is that of a glorious family that belongs to God the Father through Jesus Christ The Son.
When we gather as His church, under His divine direction, we are truly thankful for His saving grace and immensely privileged to be His hands, His feet, His voice, His church! His love poured out on our hearts enables us to express our love to Him with hands lifted high in worship and hands extended out to one another in service.We welcome you to visit. We hope that you will encounter the bible’s Grand Subject Jesus Christ amongst us and our prayer as a church is that our daily testimony brings glory to His name.
Scripture Is Perfect, Restoring the Soul In the first statement (v. 7), David says, “The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul.” This word “perfect” is the translation of a common Hebrew word meaning “whole,” “complete,” or “sufficient.” It conveys the idea of something that is comprehensive, so as to cover all aspects of an issue. Scripture is comprehensive, embodying all that is necessary to one’s spiritual life. David’s implied contrast here is with the imperfect, insufficient, flawed reasoning of men.Read More
None of us can be exempted from the work of spreading the gospel because we are engaged in some other work. As good as our work is, and though it may be intimately connected to the kingdom of Christ, yet it does not exonerate us from the work of endeavoring to bring sinners to Christ.
"There is nothing whatsoever in the whole world compass of scripture to excuse any mouth from speaking for Jesus when the heart is really acquainted with his salvation. We are called to make Jesus known if we know him. Let us trust in the divine energy of the Holy Spirit, and speak the truth in reliance upon His might."
The primary responsibility of an elder is to serve as a manager and caretaker of the church (1 Tim. 3:5). That involves a number of specific duties. As spiritual overseers of the flock, elders are to determine church policy (Acts 15:22); oversee the church (Acts 20:28); ordain others (1 Tim. 4:4); rule, teach, and preach (1 Tim. 5:17; cf. 1 Thess. 5:12; 1 Tim. 3:2); exhort and refute (Titus 1:9); and act as shepherds, setting an example for all (1 Pet. 5:1-3). Those responsibilities put elders at the core of the New Testament church’s work.
