What do Christians really believe…

Although there appear to be many types of Christian churches, we all have one thing in common – our faith in Jesus Christ. Many Aussies mistakenly think that being a Christian is about living a moral life based on the teachings of Jesus. They think that if they can be good enough then God will accept them when they die.

What God actually says is that none of us can be good enough to earn a place in his heaven. That’s why Jesus came, to do for us what we can not do for ourselves, to make us acceptable to God. By giving his perfect life in place of ours, Jesus took the punishment for our wrong doing. And by rising from the dead, Jesus conquered death for us and raises us to new life with God now and eternally.

The way that Christians express their relationship with God when they meet together may differ greatly. What unites us is God’s powerful presence with us through his son, Jesus Christ.
