The evidence for the Christian worldview is incredibly compelling. Check it out.
Welcome to Prospect Avenue Baptist Church, Santee. Let's begin at the beginning, shall we?
A real, living, all-wise, all-powerful, personal God exists – and YOU are the greatest evidence of His existence! Our vast universe with its hundreds of billions of galaxies each filled with hundreds of billions of stars is fine-tuned to a razor’s edge. That fine-tuning extends especially to our solar system and to our beloved home, Earth. And while our world abounds with every form of life, YOU, dear human are the pinnacle of God’s creative genius and care. All of life operates according to the plan of a Super-Genius who inscribed His program in the ultra-miniaturized DNA molecule. Yet only humans are blessed with the ability to appreciate the wonder of it all and to contemplate our place in it! We are truly created in the image of God.
"The heavens declare the glory of God; the sky displays His handiwork." Psalm 19:1
The Bible is God’s communication to the human race – inspired, inerrant, preserved, and trustworthy. There is more manuscript evidence for the New Testament alone than for all other ancient works of literature combined. The Bible remains the number one best-selling book of all time, and yet, for all that, it is also the most neglected of books. In most homes, “it’s around here somewhere,” - like those old photo albums with the yellowing pages. While our culture languishes in the confusion of post-modernism and moral relativism, Prospect Avenue Baptist Church still clearly proclaims the life-changing power of the absolute truth of God’s Holy Word.
Something is wrong with our world. It’s called sin. The first humans defied their Creator and suffered the consequences, and we inherent their stubborn, selfish, sinful nature. “There is none righteous, no not one…for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:10 and 23). We pursue that which is forbidden, we indulge our lusts, and we neglect and defy God’s laws. We suffer for the nasty things we do to one another, and under the curse which God pronounced on our world as punishment for our rebellion.
