What it means to be a Christian
Christian life is lived in relationship with God through Jesus Christ, and in common with other Christians in the church seeking to deepen that relationship and to follow the way that Jesus taught, a way that gives new life to all of us.
For Christians God is understood and known as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
…Father… God is love, caring for creation and for every human being as God’s beloved child.
…Son… God is as he has revealed himself to be in the historical person of Jesus Christ. Jesus’ life, death and resurrection holds the key to knowing and loving God, and to making sense of life, before and after death.
…and Holy Spirit… God is alive, loving and active today, inspiring faith, justice and truth, sustaining the life of the world, giving spiritual gifts to the church and bearing his spiritual fruit in the world – changed lives and a transformed society

Some Christian Internet Resources
We hear a lot about the damage the internet can (and does) do. But it is also a source of great good, which we believe God can use to help all kinds of people. As with all other subject areas, there are good Christian websites and less good ones; so on this page we have put together a list of links to sites that we know and respect, and which we hope will be of real value to at least some of our virtual visitors. Enjoy!
