With everything going on in the world at the moment, are you looking for hope? Looking for answers? Looking for God?
Perhaps you're not sure what you believe or you'd like to examine the claims of Jesus Christ for yourself.
What's the Christian faith all about?
In one word, it's about Jesus.
Being a Christian doesn't mean being better than other people. It doesn't mean we have some strange ability to be 'spiritual' that no-one else has. And it doesn't mean that we are really gullible.
It means coming to know a man called Jesus, and then to trust him with our life, both now and forever. Here's what one eye-witness says about Jesus:
'And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth...No-one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father's side, he has made him known.'
Christians believe that Jesus is the only God, and that he came to show us what God is like. That means it is worth knowing him.
Christians believe that Jesus came in human flesh, and that people who were eye-witnesses of what he said and did wrote it down for us in the Bible. That means it is possible to know him.
Christians believe that Jesus is full of grace and truth. In other words, he is the best kind of news - good, and true. That means it is life-changing to know him.
Because we believe these things about Jesus, we are also committed to help others of all ages get to know him for themselves. Why wouldn't we be, when he is so good to know?
Finding out more
We're always pleased to help people find out more about Jesus Christ for themselves.
We run a free course called Christianity Explored every few months to give people a chance to investigate the claims of Jesus, dig into the Bible for themselves and ask their questions. Everyone is welcome—from the most sympathetic to the convinced atheist.
We currently run this course online. Each week, there’s a short video presentation followed by discussion time. You are not asked to pray, sing or read aloud, and you can ask anything you like—no question is considered too simple or too challenging. The course lasts for seven weeks, but you're welcome to just try it out for one evening and see how you get on.
Our next course will start on Thursday 21st January.
