WHY JESUs?

THE CORE OF THE CHRISTIAN FAITH

You may find it surprising to discover that the core of Christianity is not about following a set of rules, in order to be a good person. Neither is it about attending church enough times, in order to gain access to heaven when we die. 


With such misunderstandings about rules and regulations set aside, what is Christianity all about?


It's about a person, and his name is Jesus Christ. He lived as a social outcast and was hated by the religious elite of his time. Yet the words and  works of this homeless man from a socially deprived (and despised) place called Nazareth, literally changed the course of history forever.......


Jesus claimed to be God in the flesh - therefore we only have four options where he is concerned......

Either he's a mad man, a bad man, a sick man or he is the God-man! 


Here at Gateway, we believe that when you objectively study the historical, factual evidence, you'll find compelling and conclusive proof that Jesus was indeed the Son of God - who died for your sins, rose from the dead and will return to judge every human being who has ever existed, including you!


Jesus claimed to be the "Gate" - meaning every person can enter into eternal life through him. That's made possible because he also laid claim to be the "Way" - the only means through which a person can be united in right relationship with God.


Jesus' was radically exclusive, claiming that apart from him, no one can be accepted by God or know God. 

Jesus was radically inclusive in his willingness to give eternal life to anyone, from any race or nation, who is willing turn and put their complete faith in him as their Rescuer and Ruler (or "Saviour and Lord").


That's why we're passionate about giving every person the opportunity to properly examine the life, work and grace of Jesus Christ, and what implications this has for their life and eternity.


Below is a short video giving a graphical insight into the life and work of Jesus.


In addition, you'll find information about whats in which you can begin the journey of having a personal connection to God. 

Want to find out more?

The best way to find out more about how to connect with God, is spending time with people who have experience in living such a life. We're able to provide this through a variety of means - either a personal meeting in a public place; welcoming you to a public gathering, like our Sunday Gathering; ;or through an introductory course like Christianity Explored (CE).


CE is a free, 7 week course (90 minutes per week, with 1 full day retreat), introducing you to the Bible, taking you through the basics of the Gospel message, and giving space for you to ask any questions you like!  This course assumes no prior knowledge or experience of the Christian faith, and you are welcome to engage at what ever level is comfortable for you.


In addition, we run or a more in depth foundational course called Be Fruitful & Multiply (BFAM), which is a 52 week course (2-3 hours per week), split into 4 modules. This course is designed to give people skills to interpret the Bible for themselves, grow in spiritual maturity, examine their own lives against the scriptures and give them understanding of how to lead a group Bible study.  


If you are interested in exploring any of these opportunities, please Contact Us - we look forward to hearing from you!
