Doctrine for the Block is an urban apologetics conference that is being hosted by The Reborn Church of Phoenix. Christian apologetics is giving the defense of our faith against those who challenge the validity of our beliefs. You are invited to come and learn from Christian theologians and apologists on how to defend your faith in an urban context. We believe that good theology and sound doctrine is an essential part of the Christian life. A good theology will shape how we live out what we believe. We hope this conference will equip you with the confidence to know what you believe, why you believe it, and how to defend it.
