What Is Christianity?

Christianity is first and foremost about relationships rather than rules. It is about a Person more than a philosophy. It is about the most important relationship of all: our relationship with the God who made us. Jesus said the first and greatest commandment is to love God. The second is to love our neighbour. So, it is also about our relationships with other people.

We were created to live in a relationship with God. Until we find that relationship there will always be something missing in our lives. As a result, we are often aware of a gap. People try to fill this emptiness in various ways. Some try to close the gap with money. Others try drugs or excess alcohol or sex. Still others try hard work, music, sport or seek success. However they don't satisfy that hunger deep inside every human being.

Jesus said, 'I am the bread of life' (John 6:35). He is the only one who can satisfy our deepest hunger because he is the one who makes it possible for our relationship with God to be restored.
