Who is Jesus Christ? The root of Christian faith is believing in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. Yet many people still hear conflicting descriptions of who he is and are left to continue wondering just what they're supposed to believe. In this Groundwork series, let's study the evidence found in scripture to grow in our understanding of the person and nature of Jesus Christ, as well as his role and purpose. Special guest Han-Luen Kantzer Komline joins us to bring insight regarding historic people and events that shaped how we answer "Who is Jesus Christ?" today.
The one thing common to Christian worship through the centuries, for almost all churches in all times and places, has been the use of the sacraments. These ceremonies or symbolic acts have marked Christian worship from the very first days of the apostles until today. Denominations of churches disagree about their meaning or their form or who should receive them or even how many there are, but for almost all Christians these sacred rites both proclaim and enact the deepest truths of the Christian faith. In this Groundwork series we'll study the scriptures that inform our beliefs about the Holy Sacraments, what happens when we practice them, and their purpose in the Christian life.
What do Christians believe? In this Groundwork series we'll study the biblical foundations that provide the basis for the core beliefs at the heart of the Christian faith. We'll discuss who God is and what he's done, the nature of humanity, God's salvation and how this salvation comes to us, how we respond, and the kingdom of God. Whether you're new to the Christian faith or have been a disciple of Christ for many years, studying scripture to discover the roots of our faith reminds us of our past, teaches us to live as God's people in the present, and fills us with hope and assurance for the future.
