Who Is Jesus?

By his birth the world dates its calendars, and by his name millions curse and millions pray. Two thousand years on, Jesus remains the most prominent and influential person in history. All this from a man without earthly title and riches, the son of a carpenter, whose public ministry spanned less than four years.

The striking contrast between Jesus' humble life and impact on the world (which transcends generations, cultures and creeds), is nothing short of miraculous. Who is Jesus and why does it matter? The answer warrants more than a passing thought and openness to explore.

“Could it be that there’s a God with a love so deep that He gave His only Son for you?”

Discovering Jesus

For all the things that can be said of Jesus (who he is, his life and teachings), the Bible remains the most definitive and detailed source. In it we find eyewitness accounts that testify to his character, nature and deeds.

One such account is detailed in the Gospel of Mark, which is a great place to start as you explore and discover Jesus.

Accepting Jesus into your heart is the most important thing you can ever do.

Encountering Jesus

Maybe you're feeling lost in a world of hardship and pain or a world so focused on material things it's hard to hear God's voice. Maybe you're seeking answers to life's BIG questions. Or maybe you've been prompted by a family member or friend to dig deeper. Whatever your reasons, finding God usually starts with a question, either out of sheer curiosity, or a seeking heart for the truth.

Jesus said, "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened." (Matthew 7:7-8)

At burlpres we're here to help you, whatever your stage or phase in life. Whether you're just starting out as a Christian, or ready for the next step, we can equip you for the journey. It's a journey of discovery to become the person God created you to be.

Are you ready for the next step?

For those who are ready to accept Jesus into their heart and start a new life, we invite you to use the following as a guide. It's not an officialy prayer, but rather something to guide you as you find your own words. This is based on Romans 10:9-10.

“God, I come to you acknowledging your ways are better than mine. I accept that Jesus is Lord and I believe that you raised Him from the dead. I am sorry for the sins of my past and from this day forward I’m committed to following you. I thank you, Father, for loving and saving me.”

If you're not quite ready for this step we invite you to come along to our church services to learn more. It's the place to find answers to burning questions, while connecting with others. In the meantime, we encourage you to pray to God with a sincere and open heart, that He may reveal Himself to you.
