Does God exist? An answer to this fundamental question is foundational to the answer to all the other big questions of life: Where did we come from? Why are we here? Do we serve a purpose? Do we have any intrinsic value? What happens after we die? The question of the existence of God is vital.
If there is no God, none of that matters. Without God, life is random and has no purpose. Without God, our deepest questions are left unanswered.
But those of us who believe that God exists often have little foundation for our belief. When asked why we believe in God, we have very simple answers. We believe because we’ve always believed. We believe because somebody we believe believes. But these don’t really provide answers.
The vast majority of the world’s population believes that a God does exist: 89% in America, and 84% worldwide. It’s a belief that doesn’t need to be taught and seems to come naturally to people. But of course, that doesn’t mean it’s true. How can we determine if God does or does not exist?
This Sunday I will try to help you find reasons to believe in God. I continue a new sermon series that I call “The God Questions.” Questions we would like to ask God. This Sunday I will try to prove that there is a God to whom we can ask those questions.
It’s also our Church Anniversary Sunday. I’m expecting several visitors and hope to instill in everyone the knowledge that there is a God and we are responsible to Him. I hope you will pray that God will speak to hearts this Sunday, including yours.
Join us this Sunday, September 10 @ 10:30 a.m.
