What does it mean to 'believe in Jesus'?

Although most Christians haven’t seen Jesus with their own eyes they still believe in him.

Spend some time talking about things we haven’t seen with our own eyes, yet believe are real. Talk about the air around us, planets in outer space and events in history that we read about in books.


People who ‘believe in Jesus’ believe that…
1. Jesus really is God the Son
2. Jesus lived, died and rose again so that everybody everywhere can become close friends with God

For many, many people, when they first believe in Jesus they say 'Yes' to God's love and forgiveness. People who have said 'Yes' to God's love and forgiveness are called Christians.

Explain that there are many reasons why Christians trust that Jesus really lived, died and rose again. See 'Do Christians believe there is evidence that Jesus lived, died and rose again?'
