Dear church family

When we were young curious children, we may ask some questions as we observed the world around us. For example, how is it possible for a big heavy plane to fly in the air. Or we may wonder how can it be that a huge metal ship can float on the waters. As we study science and the environment, we begin to learn and understand the physical world better. We may ask, “How did life on earth begin?” or “Who created this world?”

When we grew older, we start to ask more important questions about life. There are three common questions.

Firstly, about our Identity – “Who am I?”.

Secondly, about our Purpose in life – “Why was I born? Why am I here on earth?”.

Thirdly, about our Destiny – “Where am I going when I die?”.

The Bible provides the answers to these three important questions in life.

  • Who am I?” – We are loved and created in the image of God. When we believe in Jesus Christ our Saviour, we become the children of God.
  • What is my purpose in life?” – We worship and glorify God and enjoy God’s love, and to share the good news of Jesus Christ.
  • Where am I going when I die?” –  We have an eternal home in heaven in the presence of our loving Abba Father.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son (Jesus Christ), that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
