series summary

Trends come and go in our culture and the church seems to follow. BASIC is a seven-part series of short films that challenges us to reclaim the church as Scripture describes it to be. This series speaks to those who have questions about the church and to those who may have lost interest in the church.

What is church?
You are church.
I am church.
We are church.

“If I only had this as my guide … if all I had was the Bible … and I was to read this book and then start a church, what would it look like? Would it look like the thing that we’ve built here and all refer to as church? Or would it look radically different?”
— Francis Chan


  • Should you be terrified of God?
  • Are you too arrogant in your perception and approach to God?
  • How should you repent and/or respond to what God is teaching you about fearing Him?
  • (Read Acts 9:31) What does it mean for you to walk in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit? And how will this help multiply the church?


  • Can you be a follower of Jesus and yet not be like Him or do what He says?
  • What command of Jesus or characteristic of Jesus are you currently trying to obey or imitate (give Scripture reference)?
  • How should you repent and/or respond to what God is teaching you about following Jesus?  
  • If Jesus really is the eternal Son of God, Creator of the World and Lord of the Universe who willingly came into this world to serve us by sacrificially dying for us in order to save us from the furious wrath of God, the final judgement of God and the miserable punishment of an eternity in hell which our sin (rebellious spirit against God) deserves and has made Himself the Savior-King of those who follow Him and the Conquering King who will one day return to this earth to destroy those who don't follow Him and set up His eternal Kingdom for His special people then what choice do you really have when it comes to whether or not you will follow Him?
