What is a Christian?

Christianity is all about a person: Jesus Christ. He is God’s Son, who shows us perfectly what God is like. He came into our broken world to meet us where we are and carry out an amazing rescue mission. He died in our place to take away our guilt and shame. He rose from the dead so that we could live new lives now and live with him for ever in the future. He has sent his Holy Spirit to bring people from all over the world into his new family, the church. He will come again to put an end to evil and renew all creation for ever.

A Christian is someone who lives for Jesus. We know God as our Father and we experience him acting in our lives by his Holy Spirit. We’re not perfect people – we get all sorts of things wrong like everyone else. But we know Jesus; and that makes all the difference in the world to us.
