What happens to my body and my soul when I die? Is my deceased loved one watching over me? Will I recognize my family in heaven? What is heaven like? Books describing near-death experiences and visions of heaven rise in popularity as we seek comfort to ease our anxiety of the unknown. But Christians already have hope for life after death. The Bible provides the answers we seek to our questions about heaven, hell, and the afterlife. Discover the hope Jesus Christ brings for life after death and what scripture says we can expect after death, both before and after Christ's second coming.
The cross is a central symbol of the Christian faith. But what is it's message? Why do Christians glorify this ancient instrument of death? What does the cross of Christ mean for us? In this Groundwork series we focus on the words Jesus spoke while hanging on the cross for answers. Through his words we'll affirm deep truths about our faith, our Savior, our salvation, God's kingdom, and why it's imperative for us to preach Christ crucified.
The biblical book of Ruth is one of only two books in the Bible named after women. Yet this short story about a humble, yet fiercely loyal young woman provides us much insight into God's character and how he chooses to work. In this Groundwork series we study the story of Ruth together to discover God's provision, be reminded of the importance of our obedience and faithfulness, and be encouraged to keep walking in faith no matter our circumstances. Through it all we'll see how the story of Ruth reveals just how God will advance his plan to redeem and restore the world.
