The Bible teaches us about God's character and Christ's ministry through the services performed at the ancient Israelite sanctuary.  By clearly explaining the meanings of these sanctuary services, Altar Call answers questions about Christ's current ministry in the heavenly sanctuary and explains what that has to do with our salvation through Christ's sacrifice.
