The First Principles is a study series designed to help men and women know Jesus and find salvation through God’s grace in Jesus Christ, by following in the footsteps of our first-century Christian brothers and sisters in Acts 2.
The studies can be used to convey the gospel to our non-Christian friends, to instruct young disciples in how to effectively teach the gospel to others, and to anchor mature Christians in their faith by reviewing basic doctrines of Christianity. These Bible studies are designed to be a flexible tool to aid the seeker along this journey. While every true seeker arrives at the same destination, all begin from unique starting points. Along the way, different Scriptures may prove more applicable and effective. Additionally, while these studies can help a seeker to understand God’s wonderful plan of salvation, a personal relationship with God can only be grown through personal time spent with God. Please encourage a person studying the Bible to devote themselves not just to these studies, but also to personal study and prayer. Reading the Gospel of John is a great place to start because it gives such a personal portrait of our Lord and communicates his heart in such a deep way. Throughout this series, the overarching goal will be lifting up Jesus as Lord and Savior! Through personal Bible study, continual prayer,and effective use of these Bible Studies, God can work miracles in our lost world!
