Why did Jesus so often respond to a question with a question? I read that  “Jesus is almost 40 times more likely to respond to a misstatement,
a comment, a question, or a threat from someone by drawing them further
into conversation rather than just pouncing with a proclamation.”


How different this is than how people relate to one another through social media. I also know that one of the main reasons young people walk away from the faith is that there is no opportunity given them to discuss these tough questions.  As our culture continues to move away from Christian values, and the attack on our faith grows more intense, we need to be able to give a reasonable answer for the hope that we have in Christ.

Please join us beginning September 18 for our fall sermon series, “Wonderfully Made.”  

Two goals for this series are:

  • To help us personally answer tough faith questions;

  • To equip us to respond to others, believers and unbelievers, who are asking tough faith questions.


Topics will include:

  • Always Be Prepared to Be Reasonable 

  • Can I really trust the Bible? 

  • Is God anti-gay? 

  • Is Christianity misogynistic? 

  • How and why should Christians engage with politics? 

  • What do Christians believe about sex and human sexuality? 

  • How could a loving God allow so much suffering?

  • Are science and faith incompatible? 

  • How can a loving God allow people to go to hell?


All sermons will be recorded and will be posted online each week.
