Jesus came to earth over 2000 years ago. He came to show what God is like, to teach people how to live and make a way for everybody, everywhere to become close friends with God. Jesus healed the sick, fed the hungry and comforted the poor. Then he did the best thing of all. Jesus died on the cross and three days later God raised him back to life.
Christians believe that because Jesus lived, died and rose again everybody, everywhere can now say ‘Yes’ to God's love and forgiveness, and become close friends with God.
When Jesus went back up to Heaven God sent the Holy Spirit down to live with people. Christians believe the Holy Spirit comes alongside to teach and guide. They believe that as the Holy Spirit works powerfully in their lives he changes them from the inside-out to become more and more like Jesus; to be more peaceful, patient and kind. As the Holy Spirit helps Christians become more like Jesus, more and more they are able to live God's way.
Christians believe that each day the Holy Spirit helps millions of people around the world become more and more like Jesus so they can learn and grow to live God’s way, the way God created them to live.
