The Bible is the Word of God given to mankind. It tells us of His purpose with the earth and mankind. Of the history of the first people and their dealings with God and of the history of the people of Israel of old. It tells of the promises made to faithful men and women long ago. Of the promise of Messiah Ė the Christ Ė and the hope of salvation through the forgiveness of sins that would come through this Son of God. Of Godís plan and purpose and of various steps along the way that can be recognised. It tells of the return of Jesus in glory to re-establish Godís kingdom in the Last Days and of the glorious Millennium age.
