As we connect each week for Bible Basics, we'll discover crucial points like the 4-Key Concepts of Christianity; how God connects with humankind through Jesus; what is prayer, confession, baptism, and holy communion; and, how God connects us with the world: the Christian Church, the End Times, and the doctrine of Vocation.
