What are the Basics of Belief?

We’ve collected a sample of what we think would serve as a resource to begin a Bible study examining Jesus and the cross.

Some of these short articles cover the same ground from different angles. And we hope to add more to this page in the future.

At any rate, this should serve as conversation starters and hopefully will lead into more in-depth study!
