FIRST BAPTIST: Have you ever asked yourself one of these questions? 1) Why should I believe the Bible? 2) Why should I trust this book over any other religious book? 3) Wasn’t the Bible just written by men and therefore loaded with errors?, and 4) Hasn’t the Bible been changed over the years? For answers come and hear Charlie Campbell speak on, “ Amazing Evidence for the Trustworthiness of the Bible.” Sunday, January 22, 9 a.m. at First Baptist Church, 715 E.
