Laying The Foundation Series

Whether a building is made of wood, bricks, stone or concrete, the foundations set the limit for any structure, both in terms of size and weight.

The same applies to our Christian faith.

You cannot build a successful Spirit-filled life with a compromised foundation. We must dig deep and discard any beliefs, attitudes, and behaviours that hinder us from knowing Jesus and walking in the fullness of His ways.

What is the state of your foundations? Have you laid the right foundation?

Building a successful Spirit-filled life

Widely regarded as the crown jewel in Derek Prince’s vast Bible teaching archive, the Laying The Foundation series provides a thorough initiation for sound Christian living.

It is designed to help believers progress to spiritual maturity, examining six essential principles of the Christian faith as outlined in Hebrews 6:1-3, which are:

  • Salvation
  • Baptism
  • The Holy Spirit
  • The laying on of hands
  • Resurrection
  • Eternal judgement

A sound understanding and application of these key truths can help believers set a firm foundation for their faith and build a successful life.

Proverbs 25:2 says:

“It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings.” (NIV)

This passage reminds us of the importance of seeking truth and actively investing in our relationship with our Heavenly Father. Conversely, God will withhold deeper spiritual realities and insights from us until we are ready to receive them. Setting a sound foundation for faith is a key precept for spiritual development and greater understanding.

Formally known as Foundations For Christian Living, the Laying The Foundation series offers timeless Bible-based teaching that will encourage you as you grow in Christ.

"Excellent presentation of the key foundational doctrines of Christian living. Clear explanation of the Scriptures that define and support these doctrines presented in a logical and understandable narrative. In an area where considerable confusion, opinion and deliberate error abound, Derek Prince draws his teachings from Scripture and no other source. His straightforward presentation is further assisted by his fluency in the source languages, allowing for clarification of meaning and added insight where variations exist across Bible translations." - R. Pickford
