Richard Nerurkar MBE

Born: 6 January 1964 in Wolverhampton

What I Believe
I believe that God wants us to know Him as our loving heavenly Father; that we would never have understood how much He loves us if He had not sent His Son, Jesus, to live among us and die for us.

By the fact of Jesus' death, God demonstrated His willingness to forgive us whatever we're like.

By rising again from the dead, Jesus showed that death had no hold over Him and that those who swear allegiance to Him might also know life eternal.

Why I Believe
I first recognised the truth of what Jesus had done for us when I was 16. Since then, through personal experience and through meeting others who have been changed by their faith in God, I have wanted to affirm more and more the truth of what Jesus promises us: that through Him we may have life and have it to the full.
