The Firm Foundations discipleship programme is designed to take new as well as already practising Christians through a process of establishing and reinforcing a stable foundation of sound doctrine which is necessary for the development of their faith and spiritual maturity.
The Apostle Paul in Hebrews 6: 1–2 encourages believers to "go on to maturity" after having laid the foundations of:
- Repentance from acts that lead to death
- Faith in God
- Instructions about Baptisms
- The laying on of hands
- The resurrection of the dead and
- Eternal judgement.
In covering these areas and other key components of Christian living, it is our intention that the course will lay the foundations that will encourage a deeper understanding of and relationship with God.
In addition to laying strong foundations of sound Christian doctrine, the programme will also draw from the great commission in Matthew 28:19 which presents a mandate for all followers of Christ to:
- GO and make disciples of all nations.
- Baptize in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit &
- Teach all that the Lord Jesus commands as seen in scripture.
It is hoped that this programme will equip God's people to fulfil this directive and in so doing, fully participate in being co-workers with Christ in accomplishing His redemptive plan for mankind.
Vision: To equip participants with life skills to accomplish God’s purpose for their lives, provide an opportunity for community impact and to inspire everyone who attends the programme to be all God has created them to be.
Length: The course is a 7 week programme which consists of once a week evening classes and the opportunity to be Baptised.
Syllabus: The course is based on teaching from 'Firm Foundations' by John Partington & 'The Visa Course' by Friends International.
