What is Faith in Jesus? (6BE171)
Christian Foundations – SPIRITUAL LIFE

(Also available as MP3 audio)

John 3:16. Have your ever seen a fan at a football game holding up a sign with this Bible reference on it? If you’ve ever grown curious and looked up that verse, you’ve found out that it’s an invitation to “believe” in Jesus.

But what exactly does it mean to “believe” or “have faith” in Jesus? Is belief a mindless posture for the weak-minded? Is faith something for the extremely religious? Does having faith mean you stop asking questions? Or, as we see with the very first Christians, is faith in Jesus a simple profound, life-changing decision to trust

In this booklet, we tackle honestly and head-on a question that people have been asking for over 2,000 years—What is faith in Jesus?
