We have three goals for the I believe sermon series:
1. Clarify our beliefs. Every person on earth has beliefs—about God, Jesus, sin, salvation. But not everyone knows what they believe. So, whether you’re a Christian or not, do you know what you believe?
2. Challenge some beliefs. It’s easy to treat Christianity like Chinese buffet: I like God being loving but don’t like hell. I like Jesus’ miracles but not the virgin birth., there’s a good chance that you believe some stuff that’s unbiblical.
3. Understand what it means to be Christian. The beliefs we are going to talk about in this series have defined “Christian” for more than 1500 years. They are the basics, bare minimum, the non-negotiables.
This sermon serves as the introduction to the series.
