Hello, I am new to android development and this is my first time using eclipse so sorry if this question sounds silly.
I have created an android application called IFMApp. I have four xml pages and 4 java classes. My application, is cleaning and building fine and will install to the emulator however when I click the app to open on emulator it outputs the message Unfortunately IFMApp has stopped.
This is a copy of the console from the last compile.

[2014-05-06 13:45:10 - IFMApp] Android Launch!

This is my activity_main xml

 <TextView
            android:id="@+id/txtTitle"
            android:layout_width="wrap_content"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"

            android:text="@string/click_for_vehicle_checklist"
            android:textAppearance="?android:attr/textAppearanceMedium" />

        <Button

            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
            android:layout_centerVertical="true"
            android:text="@string/please_click_for_engineers_docket"
            android:textAppearance="?android:attr/textAppearanceMedium" />

        <Button
            android:id="@+id/btnDock"
            android:layout_width="wrap_content"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:layout_below="@+id/txtDock"
            android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
            android:layout_marginTop="40dp"
            android:text="@string/docket" />

        <TextView

            android:layout_width="wrap_content"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:layout_below="@+id/btnDock"
            android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
            android:layout_marginTop="90dp"
            android:text="@string/please_click_for_duty_of_care"
            android:textAppearance="?android:attr/textAppearanceMedium" />

        <Button
            android:id="@+id/btnDOCare"
            android:layout_width="wrap_content"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:layout_below="@+id/txtDOCare"

            android:layout_marginTop="40dp"
            android:text="@string/duty_of_care" />

and this is the java class for it

public class MainActivity extends Activity {

    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

        Button btnHome = (Button)findViewById(R.id.btnHome);
        btnHome.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            public void onClick(View view) {
                Intent myIntent = new Intent(view.getContext(),MainActivity.class);
                startActivityForResult(myIntent, 0);
             }
        });    
        }

       }

and this is the android manifest

<uses-sdk
        android:minSdkVersion="8"
        android:targetSdkVersion="19" />

    <application
        android:allowBackup="true"
        android:icon="@drawable/ic_launcher"
        android:label="@string/app_name"
        android:theme="@style/AppTheme" >
        <activity
            android:name="com.pkgifm.ifmapp.MainActivity"
            android:label="@string/app_name" >
            <intent-filter>
                <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />

                <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
            </intent-filter>
        </activity>
        <activity android:name=".Checklist"></activity>
        <activity android:name=".Docket"></activity>
        <activity android:name=".DutyOfCare"></activity>
            </application>
</manifest>
