WHAT WE BELIEVE

Here’s a great website for exploring what Christian faith is all about:


Jesus Christ once said:  “God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life” (in the Bible, John 3:16).


That’s a great summary of the message of the Christian faith:

- God wants us, his creatures, to have ‘eternal life’.  That means knowing the eternal God right now, and being with him    eternally beyond death.

- Jesus Christ, the Son of God, willingly gave up his own life for us.  He took on himself the punishment that we deserve for  all  the ways that we have ignored God and rebelled against him.  That’s how much God loves us.

- Without trust in Christ, the only future that awaits us is to perish, cut off from God.

- But if our trust is in Christ, then we can be certain of God’s forgiveness, and the gift of eternal life.


So it’s not being good, or going to church, or being spiritual, that puts things right between us and God.  It’s trusting in Jesus Christ.Picture of a Bible


Our “Christianity Explored” course is a good way to discover more about this for yourself.



At Holy Trinity we sum this up by setting out these Five Values for our church life:

 

1. Everyone transformed by Christ

 

2. Everyone growing in Christ

 

3. Everyone praying through Christ

 

4. Everyone serving Christ

 

5. Everyone witnessing to Christ
