What is Christianity?
Christianity is about God reaching out his hand in friendship to mankind. Christians believe that the whole world and everything in it was created by God. God is a personal being, a living God who is three, yet one: Father, Son and Spirit, just as we human beings have body, mind and soul! (see the Trinity).

The Bible says God created people in his image, to love him. Yet every person has rebelled against God and sinned. Yet instead of turning his back on us, God became a man, Jesus, who most scholars believe was born about the year 4 BC and lived among us. He taught a message of love throughout Palestine but public opinion turned against him and he was executed as a young man.

He died because of us - the death that we should have died. He was crucified on a cross, but he rose from the dead, and now calls us to trust him, to love him and to repent of our rebellion. If we do this, then we our relationship with God becomes restored and we will live forever with God.

Many non-Christians may think that being a Christian is about belonging to a particular church or following a certain set of rule. Most Christians however would agree that at its root, being a Christian means to be in a living relationship with Jesus.

Devotion Of The Day

Christians Joining Hands Together


October, 16 - Daily Devotions

October Scripture Portion: Matthew chapter 1 - Luke chapter 22 including the Gospel according to Mark.

Chapter 7 records the Pharisees having a form of religion but denying the power of Christ. Jesus called them hypocrites--professing to believe one thing, but doing something different. Today, many people have a form of religion, but deny the power of God in their lives. Religious sects are probably more prevalent than ever before in our world today. Some honestly follow after false teachings. Others know the teaching is false, but follow it anyway. In any event, there is only one way. That way is Jesus Christ. Even though a person might be completely honest and sincere in his belief, if he fails to come by way of the cross, he is lost and without hope. God's Word tells us, in Proverbs 16:25, "There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." Jesus said, in John 14:6, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." I trust you have come to Him and allowed His cleansing power to make you whole.

The Book of Mark parallels and covers much of the same material covered in Matthew, but from a different point of view. In chapter 8:35-38 there is a message that should grip the hearts of every individual. So much importance is placed upon this life, and the profit and gain of this world. Jesus said, "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" Eternity is sure and everlasting. The man who prepares for the future is a wise man. Christ died that we might have assurance of eternity in heaven. It is the responsibility of every individual to accept Jesus Christ by faith, and receive His free pardon of sin. This is explained so beautifully in John 3.

MEMORY VERSE FOR TODAY: Man now can be: Righteous. Romans 5:19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
