Christians believe that God communicates with his people. We believe that God sent Jesus, the eternal Word, into the world to live the perfect life, to die on the cross in our place and to rise again from the dead - destroying the power of sin and death for all people everywhere. Through this event God has communicated his love for all people and his desire for us to live in relationship with him. We find out about the life of Jesus through God's other great act of communication - the Bible.
The Bible - which has 66 books in it and written over centuries by many authors in various languages (mostly Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic) - is ultimately best understood as a love letter from God to his people.
We want to know what it tells us about Jesus so that, with the help of the Holy Spirit, we can be more like him in our daily lives and come to know God better.
Therefore at Wrangthorn we really care about reading and studying the Bible. Sermons and Bible readings are central to our church services on Sunday along with Bible study in our midweek small groups - an opportunity to talk it through with fellow disciples.
