Beginnings: An Introduction to the Christian Faith introduces twelve core beliefs and practices of believers in Christ. We invite inquirers to begin an intentional journey with Jesus. This study is designed to give your congregation tools to create a small-group experience where people can ask questions about the Christian faith, explore their walk with God, and form or deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ and Christian community.
The 12 sessions introduce the most basic themes of Christianity and explore the most fundamental questions of religion.
In each two-hour session, participants will share a meal, watch a short video/DVD segment, develop the spiritual disciplines of Christian conversation and study of Scripture, engage in meaningful discussion and reflection, explore Christian faith and teachings, and grow in depth of experience through the small group.
