5 Loaves and 2 Fishes|New Zealand

We've got a few good things we would like to share. I'd like to add some resources for evangelism, printable Bible studies for groups, a few podcasts and videos, various articles, poetry, clip art, and stories. 'Hope they're a blessing.


Becoming a Christian is one of the simplest and yet one of the hardest things that anyone can do. It is easy because God does not ask us to do anything. In fact, he even asks us not to do anything - only believe!

Perhaps this is what makes it so hard - the fact that it is so easy. Why isn't Christianity like every other religion? Shouldn't we have to try to please God by improving our act? Shouldn't we, at the very least, have to go through some kind of ceremony or join a particular church? No, we don't become a Christian by doing things like that. It is true that believers get baptised. But even baptism is performed after a person has become a Christian: it is not the act, which makes us one. So what we do to become a Christian isn't something done outwardly, but is something that is done in the heart.

The first step to becoming a Christian is to admit what we are. Yes, this is the hard part. Who me? A sinner? We think ourselves to be about as good as the next person. We excuse ourselves by comparing personal sin with those who are guilty of worse things than we have done.

But self-justification is a delusion. It is a delusion because all of us will stand before God one day. The simple fact is that we all fall short of God's standard. And this is what God is asking us to recognize in our heart. When we finally do acknowledge our sin we are close to becoming a Christian.

This brings us back to the point of it all.  How do we become a Christian? We must believe! It’s basic. How can anyone pretend to be a Christian if he doesn’t even believe that God exists?  However, it means more than that.  We must believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  What this means, in effect, is that Jesus Christ carries all of the authority and power that God does. He is as much ‘God’ as the Father is God. Do you believe that?  Do you realize that you are making Jesus Christ your God?

To prove exactly who he was, Jesus went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil. He performed great miracles in the sight of the people even commanding the forces of nature to obey him.  Finally Jesus Christ rose from the dead because not even the grave could hold him down.

Now he offers eternal life to those who believe ...
• believe that Jesus Christ was the Son of God.
• believe that his death was the sacrifice which paid our penalty for  sin.
• believe that Christ rose from death so that we also will be raised to life again.
