Tough Questions

Adult Learning: BK

This class is taught by Jim McLain and meets in B231/232 at the Brookfield Campus. Join us anytime!

How can an all-powerful God allow suffering? Is Jesus the only way to God? Why should I trust the Bible? How can we prepare to have meaningful, life-changing conversations that build bridges instead of walls around us? 1 Peter 3:15 tells us to "always be prepared to give an answer" for the faith, hope and confidence we have in Jesus. Join us each week for insightful and spirited conversations on the tough questions facing Christianity as we seek to present Christ and the biblical worldview with clarity, grace, truth, and love. All are welcome: walk-ins, the curious but unconvinced, those from other faith backgrounds and mature believers who want to become better grounded in what Christians believe and why we believe it.
