WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe that there is no-one else like Jesus, no-one who did what he did, or said what he said. And we believe that how we respond to him will affect the entire course of our life. There have been countless books written about him, movies made of his life, millions of songs and poems and paintings. Here are three things that he said about himself:
I am the way
Jesus didn't come to just show the way to God, he came to be the way to God. When he died on the cross, he died in our place, so that all our guilt could be removed completely - so that we need no longer be separated from God. No-one and nothing else can bridge that gap - not our good works, not our beliefs, not our religious practices - only Jesus.
I am the truth
Jesus came to show the truth about God. In our world, there are so many ideas about God - mostly these gods either approve of what we do (and we ignore them) or they disapprove of what we do (and we fear or hate them). But Jesus came to show us the God who loves us too much to leave us as we are.
I am the life
We all want security, love, and joy and we try to find these in many different places. But Jesus brings a greater security - that can never be lost, a greater love - that doesn't depend on our performance, and a greater joy - that still exists even in the middle of suffering. When we find him, we truly find life.

Jesus, I trust that you are who you say you are. I receive you as my saviour and I choose to follow you. I receive your forgiveness and your love. Amen.
