So in essence…
We believe that being a Christian is not about keeping rules and regulations or even being in church every Sunday – although that helps and the more we worship together, the better it gets. Being a Christian is actually about having a relationship with the God who made us and that this became possible because of the Life, Death and Resurrection of his Son, Jesus Christ. We believe that when we accept the idea in both our head and our heart we can start a new life – and that we can know God’s presence in our lives through the work of the Holy Spirit.
Together we are striving to deepen this relationship and to become disciples of Jesus. We do this by following the way he lived and growing to be more like him. Through the death of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven for all the wrong we have done and we are reconnected with God forever. This doesn’t mean that we immediately become perfect, but when we return to God each time we do wrong, we are reassured of his forgiveness and a new start.
Although Jesus was killed on the cross, he defeated death and after three days, he rose again. Jesus is alive today and loves us unconditionally. He wants to bring us life in all its abundance – the sort of life that God created for us. As we experience this, we begin to reflect more the life that we have in Jesus to those around us.
We are all on a journey with Jesus. Some of us have been on the journey all our lives; others have just started that journey; some of us have had a pause in our journey and now want to start again. None of us has all the answers or has perfected the Christian life. But we are there to encourage and support each other as we journey together.
Please join us on our journey and yours!
