sundays 4pm
@ bairnsdale baptist church

starts Sunday October 16th

Christianity Explored is a 8 week course exploring the big questions of life and getting to the basics of Christianity. We go through Mark’s Gospel, a book of the Bible, to find out more about the life of the person at the heart of the Christian faith – Jesus Christ.


It's run by ordinary people local to you and is completely free.

You don't need to know anything about the Bible and you won't be asked to pray or sing.

You can ask any question you like or you can just sit and listen.

After our sessions you are welcome to join us for dinner.

Child minding will also be available on site if needed.

What is Christianity?


The message at the heart of Christianity is pretty simple.


Christianity is about Jesus. But who is Jesus?


Jesus once asked his followers this question:


Who do you say I am?


A prophet with a new teaching?

A healer to the sick?

A saviour to a lost world?


Jesus claimed each of these, but most importantly, he claimed to be God in the flesh.


At the dawn of time he ignited human history when he spoke. He breathed life into the lungs of the first man and woman - and every inch of creation itself.

But we rebelled. We turned against our King and followed our own ways, even though it would cost us our life. Our sin poisoned his perfect creation, giving way to sickness, injustice, and death.


Sin separated us from one another, and from God.


Why did Jesus come?


But rather than cast off humanity, God sent his Son Jesus to enter into the world he Created - the one broken by our sin. He breathed our air, became human like us.


He lived a perfect life - the one God intended we live - and called us to repent of our sin and follow him in faith. 


Some believed his word and recognised him as King. Others denied him. They crowned him with thorns and murdered him. They rejected him, and so have we.


But God had a plan. Jesus willingly gave himself up to die on a cross to save us from God's judgment and the death we deserve.


On that cross, he exchanged our rebellion for his obedience. Our brokenness for his perfection.


The Son of God died so we could live.


And on the third day, he rose to life again, defeating death forever.


And now, he sits on the throne of heaven, offering life through the Holy Spirit to all those who repent and trust in him.



What does it mean for us?


Jesus is the King of Kings.


You can either crown him or crucify him. There is no middle ground.


No one will ever ask you a more important question than the one Jesus asked:


Who do you say I am?
