Learning to follow Jesus

ResLife Resources

The creeds, confessions, books and other devotional resources are intended to help you grow in your faith. Faith is simple: "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" Hebrews 11: 1. What are these things we hope for, and what is this evidence of things not seen? Well, we believe the Bible is God’s Word for humanity; the one book on planet earth sharing God’s grand story for us. The Bible is filled with many literary genres from many different authors. There is much to learn from it, and so this is an invitation to take some of the study materials you find below and explore more about what God has to say to you.
