“Why we do what we do matters far more than what we do or how we do it.” –Simon Sinek

While the Bible speaks to many of life’s “What?” and “How?” questions, Jesus was far more concerned with answering the “Why?” questions. The greatest, most impactful movements in history began with a resounding why. Though Friedrich Nietzsche didn’t share a Christian worldview, his famous statement on motivation echoes today, “He who has a why to live can bear almost any how.”

Throughout the year, in between our verse-by-verse expository teaching series, we’ll look at 13 issues where the Bible clearly answers our why questions. Join us and bring a friend!
