Christian beliefs are vital to Christian living. They are the foundation of your relationship with God—and even with others. So … what do Christians believe? In this study guide, Stephen Eyre introduces one by one twelve key tenets of the Christian faith. Here is what you need to know (and tell others!) about God, Christ, the Holy Spirit, human nature, sin, salvation, holiness, the church, mission, revelation and the last things. Now available in IVP’s revised LifeGuide Bible Study format, Christian Beliefs features questions for starting group discussions and for personal reflection, as well as a new “Now or Later” section following each session.
“Why do we see not only supreme goodness but also diabolical evil?” (Pages 5–6)
“C. S. Lewis called this common core of belief ‘mere Christianity.’ These common beliefs can be briefly summarized under six headings.” (Page 5)
“personal and practical benefits. First, Christian beliefs help us make sense of the world we live in” (Page 5)
“Christian beliefs not only guide our thinking but also direct our behavior” (Page 6)
“Revelation. It refers not to the last book in the Bible but to how God makes himself known.” (Page 5)
