Is There Good Reason to Believe that God Exists?
Is there good reason to believe that God exists? Christians—and a variety of other religious people—would answer in the affirmative. But what are the reasons we believe God exists? Is it because we simply believe it and that makes it so? Or is belief in God’s existence the conclusion drawn from careful consideration of the evidence? And if God’s existence is reasonable, what more can we say about him?
Dr. Adam Francisco, professor of history and chair of the History and Political Thought department at Concordia University, Irvine, CA, will present various arguments for God's existence and make a case for the God of Christianity.
Confessing the Faith in an Unbelieving World
Is the Gospel true? Are the Gospels historically reliable? What is Christian apologetics and the apologetic task? How do Christians respond to modern skeptics? How do Christians confess the faith and give witness in an unbelieving word? St. Peter charges his fellow Christians to give a reason, a defense for the hope that they have (1 Peter 3:15). In an age of moral and religious confusion and persistent attacks on the Christian faith, a basic orientation to Christian apologetics is becoming increasingly vital for all Christians.
Dr. Adam Francisco, professor of history and chair of the History and Political Thought department at Concordia University, Irvine, CA, will lead a one-day conference on the basics of Christian apologetics, equipping those who attend to give sound and historically grounded reasons for the hope they have in Jesus Christ.
Our typical Sunday morning schedule:
Please join us!
Jesus, the divine Word by whom all things were made, gave His life as a sacrifice for sin and continues giving it as the living bread from heaven. We who eat His body and drink His blood no longer walk in the darkness of sin, but walk in His light. He is the divine Wisdom who has built His house and set out a feast for us, inviting us to eat and to live. Filled with His Spirit, we confess Him in our worship and praise, we fear, love and trust in Him, and we “serve Him in sincerity and in faithfulness.”
