“Does Jesus Still Matter in a World that Rejects the Bible?”

Guest Speaker: J. Warner Wallace

Host: Chuck Butler

  • Why do we call the 1st Century the ‘1st Century’?
  • Is there something unique about Jesus that set the trajectory for the ‘Common Era,’ and if so, what does this tell us about Jesus of Nazareth?
  • Why should Jesus matter, even to people who reject the teaching of the New Testament?
  • Can the truth about Jesus be uncovered – even without a body or a crime scene?
  • Join cold-case detective and bestselling author J. Warner Wallace as he investigates Jesus using an innovative approach to solve real missing person murder cases. 
  • Lecture + Q&A, Open to the Public.

Welcome to Mars Hill (Apologetics) 

The Mars Hill (Apologetics) ministry at North Coast Calvary Chapel is designed to equip, encourage, and enrich Christians in their faith.  We offer seminars with guest speakers (“Evenings on Mars Hill”), Group Discussions, Lectures and more that will help you grow as a Christian, develop a Biblical world-view and build your confidence in reaching others as you seek to “live out Christ in culture.”

 

Our Purpose

Our purpose is to provide a learning center for teaching, training, and education in classical Christianity and classical Christian values as a part of North Coast Calvary Chapels priorities to equip the saints for service. Mars Hill participants will be schooled in a Christian worldview that defends the historic and classical doctrines of the faith while applying biblical insights and critique to the world culture at large.  Each of the opportunities that we offer, from classrooms to special events, are designed to help you learn what we believe and why we believe, to better understand the times we live in, and to become equipped to give an answer for the hope that lies within us with graciousness and respect.  (see 1Peter 3:15)
