Francis Chan teaches about the sinful condition of mankind, and God's willingness to punish sin in spite of His love for us.

Doctrine
Knowing the Truth and Acting On It

What are the essential beliefs of Christianity? And how should a healthy understanding of doctrinal issues—like The Trinity, the Church, sin and salvation—impact the way we live and act toward God and others?

We will all face times where our faith will be challenged either by other people or by difficult circumstances. That's why it's critical that we have a foundational knowledge of the core beliefs of Christianity and a willing heart to obey God.

In these seven dynamic sessions, students share real-life stories about their own struggles with living out the essentials of their faith on a daily basis. And Francis Chan provides powerful teaching from Scripture and helps teens understand the core of our Christian faith.

Francis Chan Bio:
Francis Chan is the founder of Cornerstone Church in Simi Valley, where he served as the pastor for 16 years. Francis is a nationally recognized speaker focusing mostly on college-aged adults and pastors. He's committed to teach directly from the words of Scripture and is passionate about seeing the next generation of American Christians display a much deeper love for Jesus and their neighbors.

In April 2010, Francis stepped down to pursue ministry that God laid on his heart and continues as a non-staff elder of the Cornerstone Church. He is the author of New York Times best-selling book, Crazy Love as well as Forgotten God and three children's books.

He has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Master's College and a Master of Divinity degree from Master's Seminary. He is also the Founder of Eternity Bible College and serves on the board of directors for Children's Hunger Fund and World Impact.

Francis lives in Northern California with his wife, Lisa, and their five children.
