"THE MOST IMPORTANT DECISION ANY PERSON CAN EVER MAKE IS TO BECOME A DISCIPLE OF JESUS CHRIST.
IT’S THE BEST THING ANYONE CAN DO."
Archbishop Justin Welby
Christians believe that Jesus Christ was and is a real person sent by God to tell us about the Kingdom of heaven and the meaning of life. Jesus summed this up by telling us that to have a "life in all fullness" that is full of love and purpose we should love God with all our heart, mind soul and strength, and love others as ourselves.
Belief in God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit is at the heart of our faith and that God is a Trinity, that is, he is One, yet three persons in very essence. Christians believe that Jesus is God’s Son. Jesus reveals to us that God is our Father, and that God is available to us through his Holy Spirit.
You won’t ever be asked if you completely understand all this. But you are asked whether you believe and trust. This is called faith. It is a different sort of knowledge. It is the knowledge of being known and loved, and of loving in return.
The Christian faith is not a human invention. There are signs of God’s existence and handiwork in creation for anyone to read (Acts 14.15–17). But we believe in the way we do because God has come to seek us out and has made himself known to us.
