No one can prove or disprove the existence of God. To be an atheist or a Christian is an act of faith involving choices about how to interpret the evidence available as well as one's personal experiences of life.

Christian Faith Is Based On Evidence & Experience

Being a Christian is an act of FAITH based on -

both    •  reasoned examination of EVIDENCE
and     •  personal interpretation of EXPERIENCES

A. THE EVIDENCE OF CREATION

HEBREWS 3:4  For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything.
PSALM 19:1    The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
•  The beauty of the universe  - especially post-Hubble
•  The mathematical orderliness observed, even in so-called ‘chaos theory’,  making scientific research possible
•  The immensity of the universe.
    Our galaxy alone is 200 million light years in diameter       
•  The power in creating & maintaining the universe              
•  The unique factors associated with human life on earth -  the so-called 'Goldilocks enigma'
•  The creation of human beings by a Personal Creator 


B. THE EVIDENCE OF GOD’S WRITTEN WORD  -  THE BIBLE

 2 TIMOTHY 3:16-17  All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness
•  Its historical accuracy is affirmed by archaeology
•  Its supernatural authority is to be seen in its power to change lives
•  It is real and authentic in its portrayal of the human condition
•  It consists of 66 books with a unity in its diversity over hundreds of years
•  The historical fulfilment of its prophecies are beyond the possibility of chance
