Taking the Word to the World

Kevin J. Conner in The Foundations of Christian Doctrine says believers need to know:

  • “WHO they believe.
  • WHAT they believe, and
  • WHY they believe it.”

He further explains that all religions are founded on doctrines and that the “teachings received, believed, obeyed, and continually practiced determine:

  • Character—what we are.
  • Behavior—what we do.
  • Destiny—where we go.

Strong character is determined by strong beliefs, and clearly defined doctrine makes for clear cut convictions.”
