CLC 2016

In a world with so many religions, why Jesus?

We are living in a time when you can believe anything, as long as you do not claim it to be true. This year at the Christian Life Conference, speakers Ravi Zacharias and Michael Ramsden will explore the exclusive claims of Christianity. Can there really only be one way?
