FREE EVENT / APRIL 29-30, 2017


PEOPLE HAVE QUESTIONS. ARE YOU READY?

First Peter 3:15 commands all believers to "be ready to give an answer" for the reasons we have hope in the truthfulness of the Gospel. But how do we know the Bible is true? What about apparent "contradictions" in the Bible? How do we even know that God exists? Join members of the T.E.A.M. ministry from Southern Evangelical Seminary for a time of challenge and teaching to become more equipped to proclaim and defend the Gospel. Not only will you have your own faith strengthened, but you will learn truths that will deepen your worship and help you be a more effective ambassador of Christ. PLEASE REGISTER BELOW FOR YOUR FREE TICKET

EVENT SCHEDULE


Saturday, April 29, 2017

10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

What is Apologetics, and Why is It Important? / Steven Garofalo

SANCTUARY – "I'm not apologizing for being a Christian!" If you think this is what apologetics is, then this session is for you. Apologetics means to give a defense. You'll learn about the vital role apologetics plays in loving people enough to answer their honest questions.

11:00 AM - 11:15 AM

Break

11:15 AM - 12:15 PM

Breakout 1A: How Do We Know the God of the Bible Exists? / Ramon Margallo

SANCTUARY – Does God exist? If so, which God? What is He like? The answers to these questions cannot be assumed in our culture. Learn some of the best arguments we have for God's existence and how these arguments inform our understanding of God's nature and impact our worship of Him.

Breakout 1B: How Do We Handle Bible Difficulties and "Contradictions"? / Harold Hansen

FLC 1 – The charge is levied often that the Bible is full of errors and contradictions. How should we think through these charges, and what are some ways in which believers can thoughtfully respond? This session will look at some important principles to keep in mind as we navigate these challenges.

Breakout 1C: How Does Archeology Support the Bible? / Chris Van Allsburg

FLC 2 – Indiana Jones aside, there are tremendous archeological finds in support of biblical history. Using the evidence for the exodus as a case study, this session will explore the role archeology can play in supporting our confidence in the trustworthiness of the Bible.

Announcements

2:40 PM - 3:40 PM

Is the Bible Historically Reliable? / Steven Garofalo

SANCTUARY – Surely we cannot have any certainty about the truthfulness of a 2,000+ year old book can we? That is certainly what our culture believes. What questions must be answered in order to thoughtfully defend the reliability of the Bible? This session will focus on the reliability of the New Testament while making a case that the Bible as a whole is historically reliable.

3:40 PM - 4:00 PM

Q&A

Sunday, April 30, 2017

8:30 AM - 9:45 AM

Early Service: Who is the Biblical Jesus? / Adam Tucker

SANCTUARY – We often like to say we just focus on Jesus. But which Jesus? Is Jesus a created being, an angel, just a good teacher, or God in the flesh? How could God take on flesh and die? Who is the real Jesus? There are few questions more important that we must answer correctly.

10:00 AM - 10:45 AM
