Your word is a lamp for my feet,
a light on my path.

Psalm 119:105

At Friend Zone we believe that the Bible is God’s Word – it is what God wants to say to us, today and forever. Many Christians throughout the ages have discovered that the Bible is a lamp and a light – it helps us, guides us, shows us what is right and wrong. What it says is what God says to us – and this is true for friendships as much as anything else.

We hope that in this section you will discover that the Bible speaks with relevance to the challenges facing our society.

And, in particular, we hope that you will discover that the Bible speaks with a unique wisdom and authority. The Bible is not just a guide or a helpful set of instructions – it changes us.

As the rain and the snow
come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
it will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

Isaiah 55:10-11

God’s Word accomplishes his purposes. He works in us through his Word, through the Bible. We hope and pray that as you read this sections, you will not just find wisdom but find the power and strength to change.

The Christian faith…

Please note here that we are not attempting to outline the entire Christian faith. If you are new to Christianity, you will find this section makes much more sense if you have a broad understanding of the faith.

We suggest checking out the Christianity Explored website, where there are lots of videos and other resources about the faith, and you will be able to find if there is a course local to you that you can join in.

We also suggest simply reading the Bible – start with the New Testament – say, Mark’s Gospel – and work from there.
