The Main Idea
Christians live a world filled with people who don’t follow Jesus and significantly disagree with much of what we believe. Therefore, in order to commend and defend the faith we have in Jesus, it is crucial for Christians to not only know what they believe, but also why they believe it. In this series, we will be offering the Bible’s answer to specific questions that the world regularly asks Christians so they are prepared to thoughtfully, confidently, and faithfully engage the world with the good news of Jesus Christ.
Our aims in this series are to inform students of what Scripture teaches about today’s various “hot topic” issues and to equip them to answer as faithful ambassadors of Jesus.
