'The beginning of the good news about Jesus, the Messiah, the Son of God'
the best news
We all love hearing good news and there's something in us that makes us want to share that news when we hear it. The Christian message is that Jesus is not just good news but the best news we could ever hear - news for everyone! Here at Oakhall we're committed to sharing this good news with those around.
As you explore this good news, we hope you encounter a Jesus that: challenges our assumptions, blows our expectations and offers us more than we could possibly imagine!
God's heart is one of power, purity, goodness and love...
'The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love
But wrongness and guilt in our hearts operates us from Him.
'all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God'
God came here in Jesus to deal with our sin by dying as a sacrifice; punished in our place.
'Christ died for the ungodly... while we were still sinners, Christ died for us'
God calls us to turn around and to trust in Jesus' death for us. This is when the relationship we were created for begins...
'yet to all who received him [Jesus], to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God'
Christianity Explored is a six-week series that goes through Mark's Gospel (an account of Jesus' life in the Bible) exploring what the Christian good news is all about. It's a really relaxed event giving a great opportunity to ask any question!
Our next Christianity Explored starts on Monday 25th January on Zoom. Click below for more info or to book your place.
