CHRIS­TIAN­ITY

Central Leader - - NEWS -

What is Chris­tian­ity?

Be­lief in the Trin­ity: God as Fa­ther, Son and Holy Spirit. Be­lief that Je­sus Christ was the son of God.

People can get to know God through prayer, wor­ship, love and mys­ti­cal ex­pe­ri­ences. There are a wide range of Chris­tian de­nom­i­na­tions.

What does be­ing Chris­tian mean to you?

It means ev­ery­thing. I was raised in a Chris­tian fam­ily, my par­ents and grand­par­ents were Sal­va­tion Army of­fi­cers. I was a bank man­ager un­til I was 26 then I had a per­sonal en­counter with God which changed all my val­ues.

In­stead of look­ing af­ter people’s money I turned to look­ing af­ter people. Money caused so much pain in people’s lives so I had to de­cide if I wanted to spend the rest of my life grap­pling with those is­sues.

How do you prac­tise it in your daily life?

I try to keep God aware­ness through­out the day and try to be sen­si­tive to people’s needs.

I seek to bring in­tegrity and ex­cel­lence to this role.

I spend one hour in prayer ev­ery day and an­other hour study­ing the Bi­ble.
