If you would like to discover more about the Christian Faith and what Christians believe there are a number of ways you can do it. We believe that God has revealed himself to us through The Bible, sometimes referred to as God’s Word. So a good place to start is to read it for yourself. It is not all easy to understand so we would recommend beginning with one of the Gospels.
The four Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, at the beginning of the New Testament are basically accounts of the life of Jesus. They show, from different perspectives, how Jesus fulfilled promises made to God’s people and how we can follow him today.
There are a number of ways for you to get started and it is up to you which you choose!
A) You can read it for yourself. If you have a Bible then use the contents page to find John’s Gospel or one of the others, and read it. You will probably find many of the stories familiar to you. John, one of Jesus’ disciples, starts off quite mysteriously but it soon becomes clear that he is introducing Jesus as the source of true, eternal life. And he wants to convince us, from his eye-witness accounts, to believe in Him and what He has done. If you do not have Bible then contact us and we can get one to you.
B) It is sometimes good to read it with someone else. That way you get to ask questions and discuss things you disagree with or particularly enjoy. We would happily arrange for someone in Grace Church to meet with you to read The Bible together, or to discuss your questions. We could use the Uncover resource below?
‘Uncover’ is a resource that is available as a study guide to help you read John’s Gospel.
It is a copy of the book from The Bible, with links to a website that has more information and explanations for some of the text.
Click on the image to go to the website and see for yourself, or see below if you would like us to go through it with you.
Either way, Contact Us and we can give you a copy.
