Christian: It's Not What You Think
This eight-session study asks the question: What does it mean to be a Christian? Curiously, the term is never used in scripture; it was a term used by outsiders to describe Jesus followers. Jesus referenced 'disciple' as the key word for his supporters as well as tat his disciples would be known by their love for others. What is believers today embodied these traits? Would non-believers put aside its definition of Christian and instead know us by our love?
