Author and pastor Mark Jones joins Bethany to kick off our series on how our theology affects every area of our lives. Mark talks about what doctrine and theology are, why they are necessary, and how they apply practically to our lives. He and Bethany discuss “relational Christianity” and why fellowship is necessary for believers, with Mark offering some practical ways for Christians to remain connected during this time of Covid-19.
