Relationship with God
Christianity Is Based on Right Relationships
Christianity is primarily a religion of right relationships rather than right doctrines. If our relationships with our fellow human beings are wrong, our relationship with God cannot possibly be right.
Covenant Based on Sacrifice
The vertical beam of the cross speaks about a personal relationship with God. Derek will explain the only basis on which God will enter into such a relationship with man.

Friendship with God
Listen today as Derek traces the outworking of God’s covenant with Abraham in history, and also in the personal relationship that it produced between God and Abraham.
Union with God
Using examples from the Old Testament in how God dealt with Israel in the Old Testament, Derek explains that when God redeemed Israel out of Egypt and made a covenant with them, He became their husband. This covenant relationship was as binding as that of a husband and wife, so their subsequent disobedience was referred to by their prophets as adultery.
