By far, the best way to answer questions about who Jesus is, why he came, and why he matters is to look at how Jesus himself answers those questions in the Bible. 

The New Testament (the second half of the Bible) contains four accounts of his life (called ‘gospels’, which just means ‘Good News’). The four accounts are: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, and they are the best place to start discovering who Jesus is. You can start to read them at this website or by downloading the Bible app. If you’d like a physical copy, we’d love to give you one! Fill out the contact form over on our connect page and make sure to check the box under Areas of Interest that says, “Jesus and Christianity”.

Before you read, here are four important questions to consider as you go:

  • What do you like or not like about Jesus’ teaching?

  • What event in Jesus’ life grabs your attention the most?

  • What do you think Jesus’ overall purpose was in life? Why?

  • If the story of Jesus is true, what should your response be?

Additionally, perhaps you’ve already finished reading and you’re wondering, “what now?” Here are a few things to consider:

  • PRAY: Give Jesus a try. He loves & cares for you. Talk to him like you would a close friend. Tell him how you feel and what you need.

  • ACT: Maybe Jesus’ story made you realise there’s something missing in your life. What do you need to do to find that missing piece?

  • EXPLORE: This is what church is – a safe place where you can find honest answers about what it means to follow Jesus. If you’d like to visit, speak with someone, or be prayed for, please send us a message through the contact form over on the connect page and one of our team will respond within a few days.
