A FRESH LOOK AT JESUS

We think that Jesus is amazing, and that the way of understanding the world he gives us is uniquely good.

For most people in the Mountains, the last time they thought about whether Jesus is worth following was years ago.
If that's you, then we'd love to encourage you to take another look, to re-examine the evidence and see if Jesus makes sense for you now.

Across this page you'll find heaps resources to help you to take a fresh look at Jesus. Please let us know if there's anything more we can do for you as you think about this really important topic.
