I Still Believe: What and Why Do Christians Believe?

What do Christians believe and what is the significance of these beliefs? How do Christians deal with doubt and disillusionment? This quarter in chapel, we will explore what Christians believe and explain why these beliefs matter. All people have doubts about their beliefs and Christians are no exception; a life of faith necessarily involves doubt. At chapel, we will hear from Christian leaders who have been honest with their doubts and still have been able to place their faith in God.
