To know Jesus and to make Him known
The best way is by talking to people who already know Him. If you live locally just contact us and we'll let you know about our next Alpha, or Discipleship Group.
Another way is from reading about Him in the Bible. Don't be put off by childhood memories of old fashioned language. There are now many excellent modern translations of the Bible suitable for different age groups. The Good News Bible is a good version to start with, whatever your age. The Youth Bible has helpful sections for young people facing problems and questions growing up. The pew bible at Albany Park Baptist Church is the New International Version . The word Bible means library, so don't start by trying to read it from cover to cover - start with one of the gospels, like Mark or John. All Christian bookshops sell notes to help you to think more about what you are reading.
You can also learn by talking to people who know Jesus. At Albany Park we use both preaching and mid week groups to help us study the Bible, understand Jesus better and discover more about Him. We also run discipleship classes for those considering baptism or church membership. But if you want to explore a little more before taking that step, may we commend the reJesus web sites.
