Laying a solid, secure foundation is the most important act in the construction of any building. If the foundation is not adequate, all that is subsequently constructed upon it, no matter how beautiful or well built, is vulnerable to collapse. So it is with a Christian. It makes no difference how dedicated or disciplined our lives may be; it makes no difference how great our ministries become. If we do not have a secure foundation for our faith, we are vulnerable to collapse.
For this reason, it is essential that every believer undertakes a thorough, systematic, biblical study of the foundations of their Christian life. Without such a study and the subsequent application of the truth learned, all that follows is subject to loss.
Based on Derek Prince's book, Foundational Truths for Christian Living, the Christian Foundations Course is designed to meet such a need. The studies are built around the six foundational Christian doctrines enumerated in Hebrews 6:1-2:
- Repentance from dead works
- Faith towards God
- The doctrine of baptisms
- Laying on of hands
- Resurrection of the dead
- Eternal judgment
The plan of study has been designed as an experience in studying and applying the truth of God’s Word to the foundations of your own life so that any 'cracks' or 'weak spots' will be exposed and repaired by the working of God’s Holy Spirit. If this strengthening can be accomplished, then your success as a believer and usefulness to the purposes of God will be that much more secure.
We have made every effort to make this course as affordable as possible, limiting the need for additional study material. If you already have the resources listed below, then you can commence the course at no additional cost.
