What Is Christianity?


Faith Hope Love
 

Christians are people who respond to the love of God which Jesus has shown us.

Jesus left two guiding principles for his followers: To love God and to love one another.

Loving God can often seem difficult. You can't see Him, you can't touch Him or smell Him, and it's often hard to even believe He is there at all, however loving God begins with loving all that he embodies; justice, mercy, faithfulness and hope, but above all else love. From here a relationship with God can begin.

Christianity is all about relationships, about making the world a better place – into the loving community God intended it to be. That's not to say that Christians always get it right – we don't – but God always forgives us when we come humbly to Him and, if we let Him, He helps us to do better next time.

Life with God is a journey of discovery, in which we are free to transform ourselves into all that we can be. Only when we submit our lives to God, to the love and goodness that he embodies, are we truly free to experience the depth that life has to offer.

Whether you know God yet or not, there are many different Christian groups in Peterborough who will offer you a warm welcome and a friendly supportive environment in which to explore your faith further.  You can find out about them on this website.
