A 6-Session Study

God cares about His glory, and He wants to display His glory through the church. God’s revelation, purpose, and will are perfect. However, because He’s chosen to involve His people in His work, carrying out His mission includes our organization and effort. For this reason, it’s imperative that we understand the basics of church. A comprehensive and rich understanding of the church, its organization, and its practices strengthens our service and ministry as the body of Christ on earth.

In an explanation that embraces the whole of Scripture, author Matt Chandler defines what the gospel is — and what it is not. Written with Chandler’s weighty and yet immediately understandable style, this Bible study includes the specifics of the gospel as well as its fullness, clearly outlining its massive implications on both personal and cosmic levels.

Be challenged to:

  • Embrace and rely on the gospel to grow in Christlikeness

As belief in the secular gods of atheism, hedonism, relativism, and humanism continues to grow, it’s more important than ever for believers to be able to defend and share the claims of Christ. Of course, this clash of worldviews is nothing new. Throughout Paul’s writing in the New Testament are references to elemental forces that seek to separate believers from the love and truth of Jesus.

Not only has the Christian worldview been devalued and dismissed by modern culture, but its believers are also openly ridiculed as irrelevant. This six-session Bible study challenges the popular and trending philosophies of the day, skillfully pointing out the fallacies in their claims and presenting compelling evidence for absolute truth as found in Jesus and revealed in Scripture.

This study helps seekers explore the claims of Christ and provides Christians with the knowledge to articulate their faith that Jesus stands tall above all other gods.

Benefits:
• Develop confidence in challenging the philosophies and worldview of the day with the absolute claims of Jesus.
• Be better equipped to respond to difficult questions posed by unbelievers.
• Learn to competently counter cultural challenges while sharing the Christian faith.
