Foundations of the Faith is a study in the essentials of the Christian faith. Perhaps this will be your first serious exposure to first-hand study in the Scriptures. If it is, don’t worry—the questions are not difficult to answer if you have your Bible open. If you are an experienced Bible student, you can profit as well by a review of these matters. After all, the Apostle Peter told his friends, “I will not be negligent to remind you always of these things, though you know them, and are established in the present truth…Moreover, I will be careful to ensure that you always have a reminder of these things after my decease” (2 Peter 1:12, 15).

The material is designed to be covered over a 13-week period in an adult Sunday School or Bible class setting, although it may be used in one-on-one discipling. The ideal situation includes an experienced teacher/group leader and five to twelve students. Open discussion of difficult topics will sharpen the students and challenge the teacher. We gratefully acknowledge the assistance of Grace Community Church of Panorama City, California, in the preparation of this workbook. Parts or all of chapters one, four, five, seven, nine, eleven, twelve, and thirteen were originally written for their ministry, and are used by permission.
