"If you believed Moses, you would believe Me, for he wrote about Me. But since you do not believe what he wrote, how are you going to believe what I say?" (John 5:46,47)
"If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead." (Luke 16:31)
What We Believe, and Why
In this day of many religious opinions as well as supposedly scientific reasons for abandoning belief in God, Friendswood Christian Church continues to present without reservation the eternal Gospel (i.e., the unchanged and unchanging Good News) to those willing to give it a fair hearing. It is a message that is rational, believable, testable, and able to be experienced. It is a message that gives hope to ones with no hope. It is a message that makes sense of a senseless existence. It is a message that answers the basic questions of this life:
- Where did I come from?
- For what purpose am I here?
- Why is 'here' so bad?
- Why is there such a struggle between good and bad?
- Is this life all that there is?
- If there is something beyond life, what can I do to prepare for it?
As expected from a Christian Church, the answers we cite will be from the Holy Bible. This, of course, assumes that the Bible is a reliable book to base our lives upon. Some do not assume this, having been convinced that research has proven the Bible to be definitely unreliable in its records of historical and scientific data. Jesus Himself agreed that if we could not believe His word when it talks about earthly things (things we can see, touch, research, and test), we obviously could not believe His word when it talks about the things of heaven (things we cannot see, touch, research, and test). So as we answer these questions of life, we will also cite, where applicable, evidences from the creation that support the claims of God's word. In fact, God has always intended for people to do this and prepared the creation to show His handiwork. (ROM 1:20)
