In a previous generation, outspoken atheist mathematician-philosopher Bertrand Russell had an infamous book titled, “Why I Am NOT a Christian.” In our own day, in the places where we live, where we work, and where we go to school, the spirit of his arguments can be the voice most loudly heard.
As 21st century followers of Jesus Christ, gathered together in this local expression of his church called Mercy Hill, we desire to clearly, graciously, joyfully, turn that statement of Russell’s around and share the answer to the question” “Why am I a Christian?” Our hope is that the video below will encourage you. Encourage you to see that God is still at work changing lives of everyday folks like you and I. Encourage you to consider how he might be at work to change your life. All these stories are real-life evidence to the great truth of 2 Corinthians 5:17, that, “if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold the new has come!”
We invite you to join us for a special 3-week series titled, “Why Am I a Christian?”, beginning Sunday, September 14. We’ll talk about how, in the midst of our wanderings, our pain, and our struggles, God pursues us and redeems us with a tenacious love. We’ll explore how Christianity best explains both our strengths and our weaknesses and most clearly defines our purpose in this life; and how the deepest longings and desires of our hearts (for love, acceptance, security, hope, community) find their fulfillment in Jesus Christ.
