Biblical Teaching 5: This We Believe

Every adult, youth, and child holds beliefs that sustain our mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health.  Appropriately, even necessarily, we change many of our beliefs as we mature and as our personal lives change.  However, it is extremely important to our lives on earth and for all eternity that our spiritual beliefs grow and mature but do not essentially change in their nature once we encounter them as solid, eternal, God-given truths. 

This Unit of 13 sessions will help equip your church in understanding and articulating Biblical truths that we call beliefs or doctrines.  Not all of our Christian beliefs are covered.  Not all scripture references regarding these beliefs are studied.  But the studies are carefully planned to open minds and hearts for further search in discovering God’s eternal truths for each of us.
