Eternal Reward and Judgments

“Eternal Reward and Punishments” is a series designed to show how the Bible seems to indicate that the reward of every believer equal and eternal (based on the full obedience of Christ on our behalf), while the punishments of the wicked are varied and temporal based upon the personal disobedience of each person who dies without Christ. This could be one of the most freeing series you have ever attended, because it is based on the pure grace of God in Christ.

Christian Apologetics with Paul Vicars

Throughout its history, Christianity has faced challenges both internal and external. These challenges have been the tools used by the Holy Spirit to shape the doctrines we believe, the traditions we maintain, and even the very books we hold to be divinely inspired. Today's challenges are in some ways the same as those Christians have answered throughout history, but in other ways they are new. In this study we will look both at ways to defend our faith, as well as challenge those views that are hostile toward it. In the end, the goal is that we finish the study with a better understanding of how Christianity fits into other disciplines such as philosophy, science, and history. But more importantly we will walk away with a greater confidence in our ability to answer the challenges that keep people from faith.

This series is taught by Paul Vickers.
