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). So Alpha is the first step to exploring the big questions of life and discovering who Jesus is.
That’s why the Alpha videos cover the basics of the Christian faith with a simple overview. It's just the beginning!
