Class 101 “Discover the Christian Life”
This is a one session seminar on the basics of the Christian faith. It’s for the curious, the seeker, the newbie or anyone who just wants to brush up on the essentials. The session is built around responding to some basic questions: What is the gospel? How can I have the new life Jesus gives? How do Christians live? What do they believe? Why does church membership matter? Our basic written material is The Bible and The Apostle’s Creed.
