Picture a supernatural power that can make you invincible - it's real and alive, it's the Holy Spirit! Pastor Levi Marychurch completes the series on the Early Church with a colourful analogy of an Inkan Mask from a popular 90's video game called Crash Bandicoot to demonstrate the impact of the Holy Spirit - speedy, unstoppable, and on another level.
Levi gets real by addressing the common challenges of connecting with the Holy Spirit, and helps us overcome them by reassuring that it is easy to access, it is freely given to you as a gift, and it wants to be simple with you. It is not a mystery: God's Presence is real and he simply wants to empower you through the Holy Spirit today.

Put yourself in the place of one of the disciples. You’re witness to the most remarkable period in human history. You’ve seen miracles performed, lives changed, and eternities impacted. Then, Jesus leaves. Immediately after, the disciples did something remarkable – they prayed. Jesus left them with a unifying goal – to reach people and to build the Church.
Pastor Levi Marychurch teaches on the early church from the book of Acts and shares three truths common to the early Church that are every bit as true today. First, the disciples were together – often. They stuck together, no matter the difficulty or danger. Second, they prayed. Prayer was fundamental to the early Church and it was birthed in prayer. Lastly, the disciples were patient. But, patience doesn’t mean they were idle. They were active, they were urgent, they were desperate, but most importantly, they were compelled.

It’s the modern day “all-in” to guests invited to your home…more than mere shelter, or the gift of food…it’s a bold statement of unlimited access – feel free to hop onto my wifi. Pastor Levi Marychurch teaches from John 1 where Jesus invites two of John’s followers into his life. Jesus didn’t hint that John’s followers were welcome, Jesus answered boldly with five powerful words, “Come, and you will see.”
It’s with this spirit of invitation and inclusion that Liberté City is launched. A community of connected people with a shared vision – a church built on relationships and centered around Jesus.

We’re to be a hopeful people for what’s to come, and what might be; not fearful of the world around us. We’re to be an honourable people, that lay ourselves bare for Christ. And lastly, we’re to be holistic people, whereas Jesus is an all-encompassing influence in every part of our lives.

Pastor Levi Marychurch follows Liberté City’s child dedication with a message reminding us of the importance of our own dedication to God in two forms. First, through salvation, then continually, through sanctification.
Levi reminds us of the importance of dedication by four main themes. First, dedication is essential in any relationship. Being dedicated helps craft and build the future that we want. Being dedicated to Christ bears fruit in our own lives. And lastly, Christ asks for dedication because he first gave it himself.

Pastor Levi Marychurch teaches from Judges 7, where Gideon defeats the Midianites with God-inspired military strategy. Gideon equipped his army against the Midianites with a trio of unusual items: a jar, a torch of fire, and a trumpet. It’s easy to complain we’re ill-equipped for modern day battles, but like Gideon, God provides exactly what we need.
God allows us to partner with him in much the same way: we are the jar, the Lord is the fire, and the trumpet is our declaration. God's job is to be the fire and our job is to be the trumpet. So keep talking, keep declaring, and keep trumpeting the good news of the Gospel!

What does love look like? Can you see it? How about your faith? Can others see it? More importantly, can God? A young couple in love is easy to see – it’s obvious. Our love for Christ should be no different; you can tell a person in love by their actions. We can’t be good at just people, we need to be a people that are good at God!
Join us as Pastor Levi Marychurch highlights the foundations of “The why behind the what.”. They are: treating God like he is in the room, treating Christ like he died on the cross, and treating Christ as the one seated at the right hand of God.
