You can’t change the past. Whatever has happened in your life so far - both good and bad - cannot be altered, and all the decisions and events that have made you what you are today are indelibly inscribed in the story of your life. But with God’s help you can change the future. …. No matter what your life has been like so far, God wants to put your feet on a new path … a better path … His path. And regardless of what you may have thought, His path promises joy and peace and purpose far beyond anything you could have imagined.' Billy Graham, The Journey, 2006.
Belief in God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit is at the heart of our faith. Christians believe that Jesus is God’s Son. Jesus reveals to us that God is our Father, and that God is available to us through the Holy Spirit.
You won’t ever be asked if you completely understand all this. But you are asked whether you believe and trust. This is called faith. It is a different sort of knowledge. It is the knowledge of being known and loved, and of loving in return.
The Christian faith is not a human invention. There are signs of God’s existence and handiwork in creation for anyone to read (Acts 14.15–17). But we believe in the way we do because God has come to seek us out and has made himself known to us
God has revealed himself through the Bible. God has revealed himself most clearly through the gift of his Son, Jesus Christ. God makes himself known personally to each believer through the work of the Holy Spirit.
