UNDERSTANDING AND ANSWERING ISLAM
January 15 – 16
What are the foundational differences between Christianity and Islam? Which is the real Word Of God? The Bible or the Qur’an? Do you know what it costs a Muslim to consider Christ?
ISLAM IS NO LONGER DISTANT
In the United States today, as in all Western countries, there are growing Muslim communities. Increasingly many of us have Muslim neighbors and coworkers. Moreover, radical Islam is on the move around the globe in ways we were woken up to on 9/11, and are constantly reminded of in global news stories. These developments provide the church with many evangelistic, apologetic, social and political challenges. We hope you will join us on Friday and Saturday (January 15-16) in recognizing and seeking to respond to these challenges biblically.
