THE BASICS

Slide12

 

Slide05

SUBJECTS COVERED: WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A CHRISTIAN? // FOLLOWING JESUS // BAPTISM // YOUR BEFORE & AFTER STORY // WHAT TO EXPECT

DESCRIPTION: Paul Johnson breaks down what it means to follow Jesus in a way that people with no Christian background or little English proficiency can understand. This material also helps a believer prepare to share his story with others right away. It doesn’t however teach a simple prayer or bible reading plan so you will want to introduce both early on.  Find out more about Paul Johnson  and the CNBC.

Slide08

SUBJECTS COVERED:  WHAT IS A DISCIPLE? // DO I HAVE TO GO TO CHURCH? // LEARNING TO READ THE BIBLE AND PRAY

DESCRIPTION:  All 12 chapters of this book are useful for discipleship but the first 3 chapters in Part 1 cover the basics that young believers need to know right away. Just do Part 1 for now.   Smallman suggests reading this book together along with the book of Mark while going through Part 1. The next sections of the book (Part 2 &3) go through Romans and can be done later. Read one chapter of the book a week and do the homework it assigns. The chapters are meaty so make sure to highlight or underline all questions or interesting thoughts.  For more about Stephen Smallman click here.

Slide09

SUBJECTS COVERED:  REVIEWING YOUR COMMITMENT//BAPTISM//THE CHURCH // THE BIBLE // DISCIPLESHIP // PRAYER // TEMPTATIONS // EVANGELISM // ETERNAL SECURITY // WORLD OUTREACH // MARRIAGE AND FAMILY // MONEY AND POSSESSIONS // FINANCIAL GIVING & GOD // DEALING WITH CONFLICTS // SPIRITUAL GIFTS // THE PROBLEM OF WORRY // JUDGING OTHERS AND SELF EXAMINATION // ANGELS AND HEAVENLY BEINGS

DESCRIPTION:  This is a great resource for those who want to know exactly what the Bible says about many areas of life. There is no teaching in this material, just questions and biblical references to find the answer to those questions. WARNING! This material will take about 18 sessions to cover. I do not recommend spending 18 consecutive weeks with this material. You can intermittently complete a session as you focus on other topics or you can assign several sections as homework to a highly motivated person to complete on their own and discuss them in bulk.  For more about Aaron Proffitt click here.
