Having faith does not mean an absence of questions or doubts. Rather, our beliefs are strengthened and deepened as we seek answers to questions instead of avoiding them. Jesus said, “Seek, and you will find” (Matthew 7:7) and that’s what we’ll do during this four-week apologetics series with biblical experts while Pastor Gregg is on his sabbatical. As they address common topics and questions, they’ll provide answers you or someone you know might be seeking about the Christian faith and what it means to follow Jesus.
