The Basic Form of Truth

"We offer people a whole new way of making sense out of life--a worldview in which God is central, where unseen things are of the highest value, and where eternity is what makes sense of the present moment. In confronting people with truth, we confront them with Christ. This is quite radical, for it says that truth, in its most basic form, is not a system, a theology, or a philosophy. It is a person whose name is Jesus. Living a godly life means trusting him, following him,and living like him. Personal ministry weaves the threads of grace and truth through every part of a person's life. In that it is truly incarnational, because grace and truth will always lead people to Christ.
