"Believe" Study - Wednesdays from 5:30-7:30

Know what you believe and why it matters. 

Grounded in Scripture, BELIEVE is a unique discipleship experience that helps Christians become more like Jesus in their beliefs, actions, and character. This series illuminates the core beliefs of the Christian faith to help you thinkact, and be more like Christ.

In this study, general editor and pastor Randy Frazee walks you through the ten key Beliefs of the Christian faith, the ten key Practices of a Jesus-follower, and the ten key Virtues that characterize someone who is becoming more like Jesus.

Each week we will look at a chapter that uses short topical passages from the New International Version to help you live the story of the Bible. This will be accompanied by brief (10-15 minute) videos that help explain and reinforce the material in the book. As you journey through this study, one simple truth will become undeniably clear: what you believe drives everything. 

THINK. What do I believe?
What you believe drives everything. The way you behave, the habits you form, the character that defines you at your core – all are driven by what you believe. It’s not enough to believe something as the right answer; you must believe it as a way of life. BELIEVE helps you understand the key beliefs of Christianity that, when embraced in the mind and heart, create true change in our individual lives, in the church, and in the world. 

ACT. What should I do?
Understanding what you believe is just the beginning. To become like Jesus, your beliefs need to not only inform you but also transform you. It is the practice of reaching up to God and out to others that drive beliefs from your head…to your heart. BELIEVE teaches you the life-giving spiritual disciplines that will lead you in fulfilling your mission to love God and love your neighbor.

BE. Who am I becoming?
Jesus wants us to bear fruit that glorifies God and brings great joy to us and to others. For this to happen, we must remain in Christ. And the longer we remain in community with Christ, the more spiritual fruit, or virtues, we will produce. BELIEVE illuminates the virtues – the outward life changes in us – that are formed by the 10 beliefs and cemented through the 10 practices. It is a grand cycle that shapes us into the image of Christ more and more every day.
