Skeptics Welcome

We Love Questions

At City Church we recognize that belief can be hard and that many people in our city and world have significant questions, doubts, and objections concerning the Christian faith. We long to be a place where the claims of Christianity can be explored in the context of genuine relationships, where those who are not believers (or who are not sure what they believe) can find a safe place where their questions are welcomed and their doubts and difficulties respected (regardless of whether or not they ever come to believe).

Whether you are one of the many people in our culture and congregation processing skepticism and doubt about Christianity, or a seasoned believer trying to grow and better understand your faith, we welcome your questions and would love the opportunity to wrestle through them with you. If it is true, as we believe, that the God of the Bible is the all-powerful Creator and sustainer of all things, then we should not be afraid to ask or answer any question. Therefore, at City Church we are dedicated to providing honest answers to any and all honest questions concerning faith, life, and God.

If you have questions about our community, services, or about what it means to be a Christian, we welcome you to visit one of our services or to contact us to set up a meeting with one of our leaders.
Questioning Christianity is a place to explore the claims of the Christian faith. It’s designed to help people who are open to learning more process their questions and doubts about Christianity.

Six Common Questions Concerning Christianity

The trouble with Christianity: A sermon series by Tim Keller


How can there be just one true religion?

Religion poses a danger of creating division or intolerance between groups of people. However, the gospel leads us to three things: humble service, reconciling behavior that is neither patronizing nor self-righteous, and a love toward people who hold different beliefs than we do.


If God is good, why is there so much evil in the world?

In the midst of the overwhelming evil and suffering of our world, abandoning your faith can seem like the best option. But doing so will neither help you handle suffering nor understand God. By looking back to Jesus’ death on the cross and looking ahead to the hope of a new heavens and new earth, we can understand God’s overwhelming love for us and the promise that victory will swallow up evil and death.


Don't we all have to find truth for ourselves?

In today's society, absolute truth is thought to be the enemy of freedom. But truth is more important than you think, freedom is a lot more complex than you think, and Jesus is a lot more liberating than you think. Discover how Jesus can offer you a truth that gives you a deeper, richer freedom in every area of life, without oppression.


Hasn't Christianity been an instrument for oppression?

Historically, the gospel has been particularly empowering and compelling to the poor and the oppressed. Seeing what Jesus did for us, no matter what our socioeconomic position, frees us from being controlled by what is on the surface and teaches us to love and identify with the poor.


Isn't the God of Christianity an angry Judge?

The Christian understanding of hell gives us insight into the danger of our own hearts. It also gives us resources to understand justice, to live in peace in the world, and to know the love of God who suffered hell for us.


Isn't the Bible historically unreliable and regressive?

Some believe that we can't trust the Bible because it is historically unreliable and culturally regressive. Dr. Keller discusses solid reasons why we can trust the Bible historically, culturally, and personally.
