Believing What We Believe

Stuart Briscoe

What do you believe? Why do you believe it? And what possible difference does it make what you believe? If you've ever had a faith crisis, you've probably struggled with these questions. Maybe you're struggling with them right now.

The disciples questioned everything they believed after Jesus was crucified. They were devastated and afraid, everything they had put their faith in died with Jesus on the cross. Or so they thought. After His resurrection, Jesus spent 40 days with the disciples to teach them that His crucifixion was more than a tragic event—it was an event with divine significance.

In this series, Believing What We Believe, Stuart Briscoe covers the resurrection, ascension, and day of Pentecost as he deals honestly with the question, "Do we truly believe what we claim to believe?"

Messages From This Series:

  1. 1. Joy in Mourning

    Stuart Briscoe

    How brightly does Easter day dawn in your heart? That's the question Stuart Briscoe asks as he talks about how the disciples slowly began to realize that Jesus' death and resurrection was the culmination of God's perfectness in justice, mercy, forgiveness, and love for His people.

    How can we experience joy in our hearts not just at Easter, but every day? Stuart points out in this message that it depends on what we believe about the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

    Scripture:  Mark 16:1 - 16:8

  2. 2. Crisis of Faith

    Stuart Briscoe

    It's heartbreaking to hear someone say, "I used to believe, but then things didn't work out as I thought they should." That's a crisis of faith and not too different from what the disciples experienced after Jesus was crucified. They were devastated and afraid, everything they had put their faith in died with Jesus on the cross.

    How do we respond to the grievous feeling of broken faith? Stuart Briscoe shares his own personal experience in this message Crisis of Faith. He talks about the crucial point in life when we move beyond our book knowledge of faith to actually applying "our faith in Him" to our lives.

    Scripture:  Luke 24:36 - 24:53

  3. 3. Clothed with Power

    Stuart Briscoe

    Before the day of Pentecost, the disciples were in the middle of a faith crisis. They were broken after seeing Jesus crucified—they lost their purpose.

    But part of God’s divine plan was for the Holy Spirit to come and empower the disciples to go out into the world and launch the Great Commission.

    What was this day like for the disciples and what does it mean for us?

    We know it was spectacular and it forever changed the disciples. Peter, who couldn’t even speak about Jesus to a servant girl one month earlier, was now emboldened to speak with authority to 3,000 listeners who came to believe in Christ.

    In this message, Stuart talks about how the day of Pentecost marks a crucial turning point for the disciples as they came to truly believe what they believed.

    Scripture:  Acts 2:1 - 2:41
