A 3-week series looking at three main truths of what Christians believe.


What do Christians believe? What is the gospel message? Many teenagers claim to be Christians, yet when asked what the Christian faith proclaims or to describe the gospel, they get tongue-tied or say something theologically inaccurate. This three-week series will help students understand "THE WHAT" of the Christian faith because it's important for students to graduate from our youth ministries with a clear understanding of what they believe.

This series is broken into three weeks, with three different "WHATS" of the Christian faith.

Week 1: God The Bible teaches that there's only one true God, who created all things. He's a God who is holy, just, loving, and merciful.

Week 2: Humanity The Bible states that God created humanity in His image, yet humans are sinful and broken people who deserve eternal separation from God as a consequence of their sin.

Week 3: The Good News There's a huge problem: God is Holy and just, meaning he can't tolerate evil and punishes sin; however, God is also loving and merciful. So God offers a solution for the sin of mankind: Jesus. There's "good news" for all Christians: humanity is justified through faith in Christ.
