Genesis 1:1 – 
“Who is God?”

Theologian and author C.S. Lewis once proclaimed, “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” Is there really a God? Can God be known, and if so, how? What is man’s responsibility to God, if any?

Romans 3:23-24 – “What is Salvation & Why Do I Need It?”

Although God’s original creation was “good,” sin has changed the world and everyone in it, and created separation between God and humankind. Is it possible to be reconciled to a perfect, holy God? If so, how can this be done?

2 Peter 3:18 – “How Can I Grow in My Faith” Pt. 1

God has provided wonderful ways for people to know and have relationship with Him. Two of the most effective methods are reading the Bible and praying. By understanding how we got the Bible, we can be confident the Bible is accurate and true. With a more clear understanding of prayer, we can pray with confidence and assurance.

Acts 2:42-47 – “How Can I Grow In My Faith?” Part 2

In addition to reading the Bible and praying, God has created other ways for us to grow in our faith in Him. Participating in community together, spending time worshiping Him, and using the spiritual gifts He’s given us to serve Him and one another are three more opportunities to deepen our relationship with Him.

Galatians 5:16-25
 – “How to Grow in Your Faith? Part 3


Beyond reading the Bible, praying, being in fellowship, worshiping, and serving, God also enables us to grow in our faith in Him as we learn to walk in the Spirit, share our faith, and give of the resources with which He’s blessed us.

“What is the Church supposed to Be and Do?”

Jesus said He would build His Church and that nothing would stop Him (Matthew 16:18). What is the Church? How did it begin? What are it’s primary purposes in the world? Are there specific roles and practices within the Church?

Matthew 24:3-8; 32-35 – “The Return of the King”

 

One third of the Bible is prophecy, and two thirds of these prophecies have already been fulfilled. What do the Scriptures say about the return of Jesus Christ? What can we learn from them about the end of the world?
