What Do We Believe?



What Do They Believe

We live in a time where many want to avoid theology, thinking that it is not necessary for the Christian life. This cannot be further from the truth. Theology, the study of God, is necessary for every Christian to understand not only God by how He wants us to live. Theology is not something for the Ivory Towers. The better we know theology they become more like Christ and live for the One they love.

What Do We Believe? Is a great systematic theology starter for new believers yet still has so much theology that it will quickly become a quick reference resource for many mature Christians. This book is organized so that any reader can quickly get to answers they might need when looking for answers to theological questions.



“Andrew Rappaport has given us a systematic theology that captures and clarifies the fundamental elements of the Christian faith—the core doctrines revealed to us in the fullness of Scripture. He has carefully, diligently, and astutely explained what the Bible means by what it says and, thus, what we believe. It is, blessedly, implicitly infused, not only with Andrew's finesse as an apologist, but also with his Gospel passion as an evangelist.

“What Do We Believe? is a work that, not only elucidates what is often unapproachable or avoided by many, but also serves as an invaluable discipling tool to help perpetuate the believer's responsibility to teach what accords with sound doctrine. What Do We Believe? is a must-have resource for the arsenal of every Christian and a robust explanation of the Christian faith for the skeptic.”

Hearts for the Lost


“Andrew Rappaport has written a great systematic theology resource. This book takes the core doctrines of the Christian faith and breaks them down so that any person, with any level of theological knowledge, can grow in doctrinal understanding. The text is solidly backed by numerous biblical citations which, not only refer to the passages in which each doctrine is based, but ensure that the entire context of the passage is included in the citation. These citations give the reader clear evidence of the sound biblical nature of what is being discussed.”
