The word "Alpha" comes from the first letter of the Greek alphabet and symbolizes a beginning or starting point of a journey.

In the Bible, Jesus refers to Himself as the Alpha and Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end (Rev 1:8, 22:13). 

This is why the videos start with talking about Jesus. Alpha is the first step to exploring the big questions of life and discovering who Jesus is. It’s an understanding but also an encounter with the person of Jesus that is the most important part of what we believe. 

Alpha covers the basics of the Christian faith with a simple overview. It's just the beginning!
