Agape at Bickershaw


A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. John 13:34


For Christians agape ( αγάπη pronounced ah-gah-pay) is the key Christian value—it lies at the root of all other values.   It means respect, affection, benevolence, goodwill and concern for the welfare of the one loved.  It is selfless, and means putting others  before oneself.
