Sermon by Pastor Cheli Nadarajah entitled "It is the Lord!". His sermon was on John Chapter 21, the story about Jesus meeting his disciples at the sea of Tiberias. The lesson was when we faced turmoil or difficulties we do not see what is in front of us just like the disciples who did not see that Jesus was with them by the shore.

His teaching was also about Jesus's love for us especially the lost. He said God's heart is for the lost.
