If someone asked you, "What do I need to believe to be a Christian?" what would you say? Sometimes the best answer is the simplest one and one many of us learned in Sunday School in that little song, “Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so!” Do you know that Jesus loves you? Do you know why it’s so important for your own life and for those who don’t yet know Jesus? Chris Brooks and Pastor John S. Dickerson review what Christians believe and why it matters!
