What is BELIEVE?

Using Scripture, Believe is a spiritual growth experience for all ages, taking each person on a journey toward becoming more like Jesus in their beliefs, actions, and character.  Editor and Pastor Randy Frazee walks you through the ten key Beliefs of the Christian faith, the ten key Practices of a Jesus-follower, and the ten key Virtues that characterize someone who is becoming more like Jesus. Each chapter uses short topical passages from the New International Version to help you live the story of the Bible. As you journey through Scripture in this book, whether in a group or on your own, one simple truth will become undeniably clear: what you believe drives everything.

What are the key elements to BELIEVE at Rose of Sharon?

As a church our number one purpose is to know God. But it is not enough to know God alone. What we believe drives everything. Believe is a church wide journey for all ages, helping each person to know what they believe and act on our beliefs.
