Christianity is all about Jesus. In this short video (with sound) find out who he is, why he came and what it means to follow him.
If you would like to find out more, why not come along to one of our Sunday services?
We also run Christianity Explored courses for people who want to look deeper in to the Christian faith and investigate what the Bible says about Jesus.
He’s the Christ. The King who God Himself had promised to send, who would put everything right by setting up a kingdom of justice and love.
He’s also the Son of God. God Himself, entering the world as a human being.
Jesus proved who He was by what He did. He healed people. He calmed storms. He raised the dead. By doing these things, the King was giving a glimpse of life in his kingdom. A perfect place, with no suffering, fear or death. It’s the world we all want.
But many people rejected Jesus. They thought they’d be happier making their own rules and living outside His kingdom. This rejection of The King is something we all do. Jesus called it sin.
It damages our lives and will eventually leave us separated from the joy of being in the kingdom.
God won’t let those who reject the King live with Him. So we face what Jesus called hell. An existence without anything good, forever.
People rejected the King so violently that they killed Him by nailing Him to a cross. But His death wasn’t a mistake by God – it was a master-stroke.
On the cross, Jesus was cut off from God’s friendship and goodness. He chose to experience hell – so that we don’t have to. The sinless King died to take the punishment sin deserves.
Jesus was opening the way into his kingdom.
Three days after His execution, His tomb was found to be empty. Over the next few weeks many ate with Jesus. Dozens spoke with Him. Hundreds saw Him. Jesus the King could not be contained by death.
He had risen!
So, today, right now, Jesus is inviting people to come into His kingdom. He tells us to repent and believe the good news.
Repent means to turn around, to live with Jesus in charge instead of ourselves. Believe means to trust that Jesus has done everything we need to give us a place in His kingdom.
Living with Jesus as King isn’t easy. His followers will be rejected, just as He was. But they also live a life of deep security, satisfaction, and joy, knowing God and His forgiveness, being helped by His Spirit, and looking forward to the King’s return, when He will finally establish His loving kingdom forever.
Jesus offers all this to anyone and everyone who repents and believes.
How about you?
We all want to be happy. Why is lasting happiness so hard to find? We will be running an informal course called 'Life Explored', which asks the question, ‘What’s the best gift God could give you?’ The course will begin on Wednesday 23 January 2019 in the church building at 7.30pm-9.00pm.
If you are interested in coming along or want to find out more, please fill in your name and email/phone number here. Explore Christianity and think through what life is all about.
Here is a taster:
This is a group for ladies who would like to investigate Christianity and learn about Jesus from the Bible, in a relaxed and informal environment. We meet during term time in a church member's home in Eynesbury. Come and join us on Friday mornings, 10am-12pm, to look at the Bible together and discuss what we have read. We finish the morning with cake and a cuppa. We are a very friendly group of women and would love you to come along and join us.
