Alpha is a tool to introduce people to an initial proclamation of the good news of Jesus Christ—the kerygma. As Pope Francis says, “Nothing is more solid, profound, secure, meaningful, and wisdom filled than that initial proclamation” (EG, 165).
Alpha takes people on a journey often leading to a personal encounter with Jesus Christ. It enables people to ask their questions, share ideas, build friendships, and experience the love of God through the power of the Holy Spirit.
