What is a Christian?
Written by: Boxhead Team
God is our ‘x marks the spot’ – the source of all treasure, of all things good, of love and peace and security and hope.
Christians are people who have stepped out into the adventure of faith and who believe that God exists and is revealed in Jesus Christ. A Christian is called by God to trust and follow Jesus Christ on the adventure; to learn from his words and actions; and to share in his mission. Christians believe that God offers us love, forgiveness, acceptance, hope and new life in Christ – this is the Good News. This is the adventure.
