An understanding of certain truths is absolutely essential to a solid foundation in Christian living. This book offers an overview of these core beliefs and values. It also explores modern and postmodern thinking that confronts the church in this century. It shows the Christian faith in a proper and historical perspective. While various philosophies have arisen and then passed from the scene, Biblical truth has remained steadfast.

Faith Foundations for Life and Ministry in the 21st Century deals with the importance of spirituality, worship, and ministry.
