Why Jesus?

God’s Story


God is Holy

God has created us to worship and be in a relationship with Him.


  • Exodus 15:11 / Psalm 100:3 / Isaiah 43:7 / Leviticus 11:44

We have sinned

We are fallen because of sin and separated from God.


  • Romans 3:23 / Romans 5:6 / Isaiah 59:2 / Romans 6:23

What is sin?

The wrong things that you and I do that doesn’t please the heart of God and goes against our conscience.

Sin isn’t just something we do, we were born sinners because of the sin in the world.

Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.

John 1:29

We need a saviour: Jesus is that saviour

We need a saviour because we can’t save ourselves from sin. Salvation is found in Jesus because He was the only one who could pay that price on our behalf.


  • Acts 4:12 / John 3:16 / Romans 5:18-21

Jesus came, lived, died for us and rose again

In Jesus’ life, death and resurrection, He conquered death and the power of sin. By laying down His life for us, He paid for all of our sins, making the pathway to salvation available to everyone.


  • Romans 5:8 / Ephesians 1:7 / 1 Corinthians 15:3-8 / Galatians 3:13

Jesus promises us that he will come back again

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.

John 14:3

The hope we have in Jesus

Following Jesus

The invitation for salvation is an invitation to follow Jesus. It all begins with a decision to put our trust in Jesus as our Saviour and as our Lord – believing He is who He says He is, and choosing to obey His teachings.

You can begin following Jesus today. Simply express what is in your heart in prayer. Here’s an example of what you may like to pray:

Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe you died for my sins and rose from the dead. I trust and follow you as my Lord and Saviour. Guide my life and help me to follow you. In Jesus’ name, amen.

It’s all about relationship. Like any relationship, it takes intentionality, time and support to grow and flourish. Take these steps to grow in your relationship with Jesus.


Prayer is simply talking to God. The bible describes God as our Father who hears and meets with us in prayer.

How do you pray?

P – Pause; breathe deeply and be still in God’s presence.

R – Rejoice; what’s been good today? Thank God for it.

A – Ask God to help you and those you care about.

Y – say Yes to God; welcome His love, His plans and His presence into your day. 

But most importantly, keep it real (it’s not about a performance), keep it simple and keep it up!

Read the Bible

The Bible reveals God and his heart to redeem a broken world back to Himself. It’s through the Bible that we discover who God is, who we are and how to grow in faith.

Contact us to get a free hard-copy of the Bible, or use an app or website below. We recommend the New International Version (NIV) or English Standard Version (ESV).

Where to start?

Here are some options:

  1. Discover the life of Jesus and the first Christians in Luke & Acts.
  2. Get an overview of the whole Bible using a bible reading plan.
  3. Reflect on the rich poetry of the Psalms.

Connect into Community

Being part of a Christian community is not only more rewarding, it’s also biblical. The very first church gathered in the temple and in homes, sharing, encouraging and building each other up.

It’s in a community that your walk with Jesus is most developed – and you contribute to developing others.

Begin Here:

  1. Find a local church and ask how you can contribute
  2. Invite someone to speak into your life and guide you in your walk with Jesus
  3. Begin sharing Jesus with others around you
