Hi, there! Thanks for checking out the first week of Thrive. Thrive is a group study where you may feel free to voice your questions about Discipleship and Apologetics in person. Because of this structure, we do not Livestream or make CDs. HOWEVER please take advantage of the PowerPoint Slides and "Recaps" recorded by Pastor Jay for those of you who were unable to make it.
Experience Thrive in person Thursdays from 7-8pm at CCLC.
The English word “apology” comes from a Greek word which basically means “to give a defense.” Christian apologetics, then, is the science of giving a defense of the Christian faith. There are many skeptics who doubt the existence of God and/or attack belief in the God of the Bible. There are many critics who attack the inspiration and inerrancy of the Bible. There are many false teachers who promote false doctrines and deny the key truths of the Christian faith. The mission of Christian apologetics is to combat these movements and instead promote the Christian God and Christian truth.
