The Big Picture: The History of Sin and Salvation from Start to Finish

Christianity is not a series of facts about Jesus or a long list of doctrines and ideas. The Christian faith is first and foremost a long, beautiful, story of sin and struggle, promise and fulfillment with Jesus Christ at the center. It’s a true story that God has been weaving through human history since the beginning of time and up through today. And yet if asked to tell this story--to highlight major moments--many of us would struggle. In this series we will re-tell the entire history of sin and salvation, from start to finish, painting the big picture of God’s epic story, zooming in specific events that bring to life each major era. In the end, we will not only have the “old old story” but be able to share it boldly and beautifully with a new generation.
