Worldviews run deep. They are the lens through which we interpret life and the foundation for what we hold dear. Is your worldview driven by the truth of God’s Word? How can you “prepare your mind for action” (1 Pet 1:13)? How can you resist being “deluded by plausible arguments” (Col 2:4)? God’s Word provides the Christian’s hope and all that is “necessary for life and godliness” (2 Pet 1:3). God’s Word is a deep well and an immovable foundation. It is strong enough to stand against competing worldviews and satisfying enough to fuel a life driven by the Glory of God and the hope of Christ!

Join us March 18-19, 2016 for Driven by Truth
