Who is Jesus?
It may surprise you to learn that Jesus asked this same question to His disciples. He said to them, “Who do people say that I am?” You see, people had all sorts of ideas about who Jesus was. Some held that He was a rabbi, others that He was a prophet and still others that He was John the Baptist resurrected. But Jesus wanted to make sure that His disciples knew the truth about Him. So, He asked them further, “Who do you say that I am?” Peter, speaking on behalf of the disciples said, “You are the Christ the Son of the living God.” Jesus affirmed that Peter was right even indicating that Peter’s understanding had come by the revelation of God. (Matthew 16:13-17)

There are two key truths that Jesus affirms about Himself:

First, that He is the Christ, or Messiah in Hebrew. That is, He is the Chosen One of God sent to rescue us from our sins.

Second, that He is the Son of God. In other words, He is the eternal God, who as John says, came in human flesh.

Who do you say that Jesus is? Have you believed what He has said about Himself?

How can you know Him?
Jesus couldn’t have been clearer when He said that eternal life was to know the only true God and His Son whom He sent. In other words, eternal life isn’t just living forever, it’s living forever in relationship with the Father and the Son. This doesn’t come, as many would suggest, through moral and religious efforts. It comes through faith in the gospel. The gospel is the good news that Jesus died on the cross for your sins and was raised from the dead. When you believe in Jesus your sins are forgiven, you are born again spiritually and brought into relationship with Him. To know Jesus doesn’t only mean to know information about Him, it means to experience Him forever!

Can I trust the Bible?
You have probably noticed that Christians are always referring to the Bible as the authority for their faith. That’s because we believe the Bible is inspired by God. It is God’s Word through which God reveals Himself to us.

The Bible is the most unique writing in human history. Written over a period of 1500 years, with over 40 authors, on 3 continents and in 3 languages. Yet maintaining complete historical, moral, prophetical, and theological accuracy.

S.T.A.M.P. is a simple acronym that will help you understand how reliable the Bible is.

Scripture – The Bible identifies itself as Word of God.

Transformation – The Bible is living and powerful. When received by faith the Word of God transforms lives. Its power is evident in the life of the Christian.

Archaeology – The historical accuracy of the Bible is supported not contradicted by archaeology and the study of ancient history.

Manuscript Evidence – The accuracy of modern translations and the transmission of Scripture over time has unparalleled support by the vast number of ancient manuscripts that can be compared with today’s translations.

Prophecy – The Bible, with total accuracy, declared specific events hundreds of years before they occurred.
