What Even is a Christian?
A Christian is a person who has placed all of their faith and hope into the one, true God (The Living Hope). This is the God of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, who gave all of humanity His one and only Son as a sacrifice for all the brokenness in the world, who also sent His Holy Spirit as a counselor to help lead and guide His followers.
It is likely that over time, you have come up with your own definition of who this Jesus is. You may have heard that He was a great teacher, or even a great Prophet, but like any other human was broken, and lived and died like the rest of us. You may also have heard that Jesus, being the Son of God, did great things and changed the course of humanity.
We believe that Jesus did in fact change the course of humanity, and was not just a random good person.
We believe that Jesus came into this world, as the Son of God, to show us His Father, and that we are invited to have an amazing relationship with Him.
He said it himself –
“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” – John 14:6
“For no one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them to me.” – John 6:44
We believe that Jesus is drawing you, all of you – as you are, the imperfect you – to His Father.
