Believe main

How do you think, act, and be like Jesus?

In this series based on the book, “Believe,” the follow up of last year’s series “The Story,” we introduce you to the key truths of Scripture in a clear and accessible way.

This 30-week experience has three 10-week segments that walk you through the 10 key beliefs of the Christian faith, the 10 key practices of a Jesus-follower, and the 10 key virtues that characterize someone who is becoming more like Jesus. Each chapter uses Scripture text to help you live the story of the Bible.

In order to go deeper into the material you read in “BELIEVE,” First Church has prepared a series of study notes designed to help you consider what you are learning. These materials include study guide for group use as well as a personal journal you can use these guides as you prepare to read each chapter of “BELIEVE” and study the material on your own.

Come back each week for the next installment of the study guide as well as the audio messages for each chapter.
