"Why Believe" Resource List

Lots of people have questions and doubts about faith and God, and the Christian faith is one that is wide open to questions because it is a reasonable faith grounded in history and the faithfulness of God.  To explore this, at Bay Community Church we decided to do a series called "Why Believe".  Sermons are being posted bit by bit at   We are having a little break for some time with the prophet Haggai helping us think through our commitment to God's work on our planet...   The" Why Believe" series starts back up Feb 20 with a look at questions about the trustworthiness of the Bible.
