Those words are “Jesus” (which means “God rescues”), and “Christ” (a title which means “God’s ruler”).
A person becomes a Christian when they accept these two things: that Jesus’ death on the first Good Friday was God’s way to rescue us from our sin, and that Jesus’ resurrection on the first Easter Sunday meant that God had placed him in charge of us all.
The first Christian sermon after the first Easter ended with: “God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ…repent and be baptised every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins.” (Acts 2:36-38) With this “repent and believe” response, many people changed their lives completely.
It’s the same for us – we’re all learning about following Jesus; please come and find out more. Take our short course: “Simply Christianity,” or join a small group. Maybe listen to a sermon here online or in church.
