Etheridge’s Epistle – June 2016

What I Believe…..
“But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the
reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,” I Peter 3:15

It is very important for us as Christians to be able to tell the world why we have hope. It is important for each of us to be able to
share our faith-to state what we believe with gentleness and respect.

Beginning with my first and second Sundays, June 26 and July 3, I am going to preach sermons entitled “Why I am a
Christian.” I will follow that with a series of sermons entitled “What I Believe.” In this series I will share my simple beliefs
of the Christian Faith.
