DOES GOD EXIST? (Issaquah)

Does God exist? Can we prove the existence of God, or are we left to grapple in the dark and take blind leaps of faith about what we believe? Everyone asks these questions, and maybe you think you have the answers. But can you defend your beliefs when peers and professors are challenging your worldview? Examine the evidence and get the tools needed to defend your faith and make it your own.
