About the Faith
The Christian faith has existed since the time that Jesus Christ was on earth. Followers of Jesus have had different understandings about many things, but all true Christians agree that Jesus Christ is a revelation of God in the flesh. We all believe that God came to earth to bring us back into a relationship with Himself.
The sorry state of our world today reveals just how far we have strayed from God's original harmonious intentions. We have all strayed from God's commandments designed for our own good, and disobeyed God in an inexcusable manner, just as Adam our first father did. Just because you and I can find fault in OTHERS, even in Christians, will by no means excuse us before God for
OUR own wrongdoing and disobedience to God.
Not sure if you have disobeyed God? Listen to this. The first recorded revelations of the true God we have are in the Books of Moses. These books reveal God as Creator, Lawgiver and Judge. In the Ten Commandments God said to put Him first, not to lie, steal, murder, lust, speak against God or desire what does not belong to us. Have you ever lied? Ever taken something not belonging to yourself? Ever looked
at someone to lust for her (or him)? Ever put the pursuit of wealth above the pursuit of God? Ever hated someone? Well if you have, you are GUILTY unless and until God declares you righteous. And that He will NEVER do UNLESS you accept His one and only sacrifice for sin and put your trust in That One.
Just as the existence of a painting proves the existence of a painter, so the existence of our amazing universe with all its complexity proves the existence of a Creator. God the Creator made us with a conscience, which alarms us at first when we do wrong. He also sends the Holy Spirit to show us the Truth about Jesus and about our own spiritual condition. The Holy Spirit gives a VERY DIFFERENT MESSAGE to all the
unholy spirits that are freely floating around this lawless world of ours. It is these unholy spirits that are the instigators all the false and contradictory religions that abound on our planet.
You were made for the true God, who loves you but cannot accept you on the basis of your own imperfect record. Doing and being wrong separates us from God and destroys the relationship with God. The relationship is restored when we trust Jesus and what He did for us - in dying to bear our sins pay for our guilt, and in rising from the dead. That is to say, Jesus paid the "fine" for us which we deserve for our wrongdoing and disobedience. Now if we trust Him we can start a new life.
The Christian faith is really about faith in the resurrected Jesus, who did all this and more for us. Jesus of Nazareth, who lived historically on the earth 2000 years ago, made a definite impact on the people of Israel through his teaching and healing ministry. But it is his resurrection and continued intervention in the lives of His followers that has meant that today He has hundreds of millions who believe in Him and trust Him. Today the Holy Spirit is working all over the earth to reveal Jesus to people in different ways, primarily through the Scriptures of the Holy Bible as they are preached and read.

Do you know the living God, the God of miracles? Do you know that Jesus Christ sets people free from the power as well as the guilt of sin?
We invite you to check out THIS PAGE to see what we mean by this. Many true life stories confirm this.
Real Christians, if filled with the Holy Spirit, CAN show that God is in their life. God commands Christians today, as always, to be continually filled with the Holy Spirit (Ephesian 5:18). In these days of war, terror and religious deception, it is all the more needful. When other priorities take a higher place than knowing God as a person, and being filled with Him, trouble and everlasting loss results.
Many alternatives to Jesus Christ have seemed plausible to men only because the majority of Christians have not demonstrated the reality of what we are talking about. The believer has limitless possibilities in God, which have been far too neglected until now.
Nevertheless, more than ever, men and women are coming forth in the power of the name of Jesus, confessing and demonstrating Christ as Lord.
