Let us help you study the teachings.
LESSON 1 – The Word of God
The word “Bible” comes from the Greek word “biblos,” meaning book. The Bible, divided into the Old and New Testaments, is a compilation of 66 different books written by 44 authors.
LESSON 2 – The Atonement
God’s highest goal for all of our lives is for us to be like Him and to enjoy a relationship of unbroken fellowship with Him. However, when the first man and woman, Adam and Eve, rebelled against God in the Garden of Eden, that fellowship was broken.
LESSON 3 – Repentance
In the previous study we looked at the sobering reality of man’s sinful and depraved nature, and the truth that our sin separates us from a righteous and holy God.
LESSON 4 – The Lordship of Christ
Luke 6:46 “Why do you call me Lord, Lord and do not do what I say?”
LESSON 5 – Water Baptism
When we come to Jesus and repent of our sins, we enter into what the Bible calls the “born again” experience. We experience a “new birth” and receive a new heart. Jesus comes to dwell in our hearts by the Holy Spirit through faith. We become partakers of eternal life, for eternal life is in the Son. When we depart from this earthly life, we will go to be with the Lord.
LESSON 6 – Baptism in the Holy Spirit
In our last study we discussed water baptism. The word baptism comes from the Greek word baptize, which means to fill, submerge or immerse fully. Just as a person is fully immersed in the water during water baptism, God wants to baptize—totally fill, immerse and submerge—His followers with the Holy Spirit.
LESSON 7 – the Holy Spirit
Mark 16:17-18 “And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”
LESSON 8 – Commitment to a Local Church
Hebrews 10:24-25 “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another…”
LESSON 9 – Intimacy with God
John 17:3 “Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.”
LESSON 10 – Faith Toward God
Faith is one of the most basic foundations of the Christian life. Without a true understanding of biblical faith, it will be impossible to come into the spiritual maturity that God desires us to walk in. Faith makes the difference between defeat and victory in a Christian’s life.
LESSON 11 – How to Study the Bible
We have already discussed the Bible and the importance of studying and meditating on the word of God. Read the following scriptures and list some more reasons why it is important to study the Bible.
LESSON 12 – Who We Are in Christ
The reason it is vitally important for us to know who we are in Christ is so we can effectively and courageously fulfill the call of God on our lives. The expansion of God’s Kingdom must be our ultimate focus, not just our own blessing and prosperity.
LESSON 13 – Prayer
Prayer is communication with God. Prayer may take many forms, but it is basically man talking with God and God talking with man. Prayer is a time of fellowship and sharing with God Himself.
LESSON 14 – Praise, Worship and Thanksgiving
Psalm 150:6 “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord, Praise the Lord.”
LESSON 15 – Sanctification
Titus 2:11-12 “For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age…”
LESSON 16 – Fellowship and Accountability
Acts 2:46 “Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts..”
LESSON 17 – Our Partnership with Christ
I Peter 2:9 “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”
LESSON 18 – the Great Commision
Matthew 28:19-20 “…go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the mane of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you…”
LESSON 19 – Discipleship
II Timothy 2:2 “And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others.”
LESSON 20 – Biblical Giving
The Bible has much to say about money and how we use it. There are more references to money in scripture than there are to heaven or hell! From its very beginning, scripture indicates that our willing giving of the resources God has provided us with is a vital part of fellowship with Him (see Genesis 4:4). Therefore we would be wise to understand the relationship our giving has to knowing God and extending His Kingdom.
LESSON 21 – Divine Healing
James 5:14-15 “Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders or the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well: the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven.”
LESSON 22 – Inner Healing and Deliverance
I Thessalonians 5:23 “May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of the Lord.”
