What Do We Believe?

Everyone understandably has a lot of a questions about life - its a confusing thing, and as Christians we believe that the answers and indeed the ultimate answer to life is found in God through Jesus Christ.

Watch the video below for a simple explanation of what a Christian is.

We believe that Christianity 'makes sense', and can hold up to discussion and debate, Christianity is not a religion, but offers a relationship between Jesus Christ (God) and you. It is not based on someone's opinion but the facts of history and Jesus' real life. It does not ask you to achieve some standard of salvation but to receive what Jesus has done for you. It does not make hopeful guesses about the future but trusts Jesus the expert who died and rose again. To be a Christian is to have forgiveness for the past, a new life in the present and a future in heaven all because of Jesus Christ.

The Bible summarises this in the famous sentence: "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" (John Chapter 3, Verse 16)

Christianity is an opportunity to live a fulfilled life, to live the life we were created to live - Jesus said: "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full" (John Chapter 10, Verse 11).

Here at Woodlands Church, Oakwood, we accept everyone regardless of background or current beliefs, our desire is to see all people grow in their walk with Jesus.
