Some facts about Christianity      back     Home page

I hope you've arrived at this page wanting to become a Christian. If you are already, well done!!!!!!

Christians look after others and each other, especially those who are less well off than ourselves. Christians are generous

in friendship, in Spirit and with material things. Christians prefer sharing to self and selfishness.

As with Jesus, we have a common spirit of self-sacrifice. Putting others first!

We believe foremost in God who has created us and sustains us, in Jesus, as our Saviour, Redeemer and Deliverer out of our sinful ways, and in the Holy Spirit, the power of God in action within us, and through us.

We accept Jesus as our leader, our inspiration and our hope for Our future!

We share in the Lord's Supper where we accept Bread as a sacrifice for Jesus's body, broken on the Cross, and Wine as a sacrifice for Jesus's blood poured out to redeem us and for many. We look to Jesus's sacrifice of himself on the Cross for when He returns in Glory, for when He comes in His Kingdom. We do this because Jesus asks us to do this in remembrance of His death on the Cross and in remembrance of the Promise of his Return in His Kingdom.

Jesus is the Living Lord! He welcomes all who are prepared to come to His table in meekness, humility and in Spirit and in Truth.

The Apostle's Creed : An Affirmation of Faith.

We Believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth :     
And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord ; 
Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, Born of the Virgin Mary, 
Suffered under Pontius Pilate, Was crucified, dead, and buried, 
He   descended   into   hell, The third day He rose again from the dead, 
He ascended into Heaven, And sitteth on the Right Hand of 
God the Father Almighty; From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.     

We believe in the Holy Ghost; The Holy Catholic Church ; 
The Communion of Saints ; The Forgiveness of Sins; 
The Resurrection of the body, And the Life Everlasting.   

Please consider joining a local Church 'that Baptises and believes in Jesus and remembering Him as He has asked us to do,  through the Breaking of Bread
and the Cup of Shared Wine'.

The reference in the Apostle's Creed to the Holy Catholic Church refers to Catholic as meaning Universal Church.  The Roman Catholic Church
 additionally pays homage to the Pope as its earthly leader. 

There are various  'organisations' who 'claim' to believe in Jesus that do not celebrate the Lord's Supper. Some also make claims upon their 
members or their members incomes that are no part of the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. They make claims of being 'Churches' but in Truth deceive themselves 
and deceive their members. God and Jesus recognise true Churches through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Jesus asks us to pray in this way.

The Lord's Prayer. 

Our Father who art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven,
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our trespasses,  As we forgive those who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil.

For Thine is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory .

Now and for ever more, Amen

Please do try to pray for yourself and for others daily. Pray for those who minister for your needs and for those in need.

There is a very useful and informative link at .Please do remember that
their list of Churches link (UK) is only a selection of local Churches, beit Anglican, Presbytarian, Methodist, Baptist, Roman Catholic or 
Pentecostal. There are also other places where regular services of worship are held such as the Salvation Army.

Whichever Church you decide to join, you are sure of a warm welcome, and of friendship and fellowship. You become a full Christian in every sense of the Word 
when you become confirmed as a Church member. Churches usually ask you to be confirmed to receive Holy Communion. 

A useful start is to acknowledge that none are perfect except in Jesus Christ, and to acknowledge all of our own individual sinfulness and weaknesses.
We have to humble ourselves before God and before Jesus. We can only truly love when we can love others as ourselves.

Becoming a Christian is a lifelong adventure. It does not mean that we will avoid hardship. True fellowship and true love of others means 
self-sacrifice. We may be reviled by some others for our Christian faith and Christian Belief. But we are assured of our reward, in Heaven!

"Lord  Jesus, I acknowledge that I am a sinner. At this very moment I confess  my sin and believe in my heart that you will save me. 
Make me a  Christian now and help me to tell someone today that I have found you as my Saviour. Amen."
