Introduction

The song featured this week, written by Don Moen and performed by the Zoe Group in acapella is "Because We Believe." The churches of Christ believe in the same things as set outlined in that song. We believe them because they are set forth in God's Word, the Bible and because the universe and many other items of evidence prove the existence of God who inspired those holy words.
Have you ever wondered what the churches of Christ believe? Perhaps you have heard some things that we believe. You may have an idea about what we believe. You may be surprised.

3. The Father Is Through All.
The Father is through all. On this, Adam Clarke writes, "Pervading every thing; being present with every thing; providing for all creatures; and by his energy supporting all things." Albert Barnes writes, "He pervades universal nature, and his agency is seen
