People are good at misunderstanding Christianity. Even believers can misunderstand some of the basics of the faith. That’s why it is important that we focus on the essential truths. In these seven sessions, we’ll be exploring things like: God’s nature, His purpose for people, sin, Jesus’ death, resurrection, and return, and the work of the Holy Spirit. By the end, our hope is that you come out with a richer understanding of the Christian faith. Even more importantly, we hope you come away with a clearer view of the Man whom people haven’t been able to stop talking about for two thousand years.
