Pastor Tony’s weekly message will include A 7 week series exploring the basic question:  WHY CHRISTIANITY?
Using Douglas John Hall’s accessible and straightforward book “Why Christianity? For those on the edges of faith,  we will confront the following questions in this 7 week series: 
1. Why Christian?
2. Why Jesus?
3. Saved from What? For What?
4. But How?
5. What's the Difference?
6. Why Church? And by the Way, What about "the Others"?
7. Is There Any Hope?
