Christian Era

<<Christian age>>

This period begins at Christ’s resurrection, includes the present day and will conclude at the end of the world.  No one knows when this time span, also known as the ‘day of grace’ will suddenly finish. The implication is: don’t put off turning to Christ. When under conviction of the Holy Spirit to receive Christ, do not put it off until a more convenient time; you may never have another chance, so “Today, if you hear His voice”, respond by repenting of your sin and accept the offer of salvation (Act 24:25; Heb 3:7-11).

In the past Western civilisation’s values and culture have been predominately shaped by Christian influences, however society is progressively turning away from the standards and beliefs that formed this foundation and backbone of social order. Scripture points to this decline yet it remains our responsibility as Christians to be salt and light – slowing this decay and introducing people to

    How can I be a brighter                light or saltier salt?

Christ (Mt 5:13-16; 2 Tim 3:1-5).
