Alpha

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone’s welcome. It runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes—you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but generally they have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation.

Discipleship

The early Christians were first known as followers of “The Way”. Discipleship is the process of learning “Christ’s way” of living, learning His principles, His authority, His rules of action, His motivations, His grace, His attitude, His humility, His commands… God wants us to be a people of truth – in love.

Discipleship needs to be done in relationship, as we grow in relationship we gain so much more than if we grow alone. Christ said that people will know you by your love for one another. We begin relationships through attraction – we learn love through commitment and growth. This is the process of discipleship.

The Purple Book is a twelve-part Bible study designed to help new believers and longtime followers of Jesus stand firm and grow strong in the Christian life. Take the challenge to build the foundation of your life on the Word of God. Do The Purple Book.

Baptism

We believe that believers should receive Water Baptism as soon as possible after their confession of faith, and so thereby confirm their salvation.

When we enter the waters of baptism, we’re proclaiming the gospel message. Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and lives again. By joining in baptism, we’re identifying ourselves with Him. Romans 6:4 says we have been buried with Him through baptism into death. We’re now dead to the power of sin. Being raised up out of the water expresses our new life in Christ and our union with Him.

If the meaning of baptism could be boiled down to one word, that word would be identification. Baptism speaks primarily of a personal, public identification with Jesus Christ.

In Romans 6:3-4 the Apostle Paul puts the matter this way: Don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.
