We all have questions and that is helpful.
‘Why are we here?’ is the most basic question any of us have to answer. Does each human life have a purpose? Is humanity part of a larger plan?
The Diocese of Carlisle is part of the whole family of Christianity. Together with our fellow Christians we try to find answers to these most basic questions.
- That there is a God who is love and who cares for us, we can know him in creation and through each other,
- That Jesus shows us the way to be in relationship with God, and how to live in positive loving relationships with other people,
- That the Spirit leads us into a prayer relationship with God and Jesus, that strengthens us and gives meaning to our lives.
- Therefore the role of the church is to encourage, enable and support in a loving community built on a faithful prayer relationship with God, after the example of Jesus and empowered by the Spirit.
