Firm Foundations Course

 firm foundationWelcome to our Firm Foundations Course! We are very pleased about your interest in deepening your knowledge about the Christian faith and our church family.
The church is God’s instrument for change in our world. The commission of Jesus Christ to the followers he trained was to “go and make disciples” not just to preach the good news. Matthew 28:18-20 says, “Then Jesus came to them and said, All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” This instruction means God wants us to do everything to produce stable and committed disciples, learners, who will take on the task of bringing others to know and follow the Lord. At Living Springs Ministries, we achieve this through many activities included in our Life Development Process (LDP) training.

The Life Development Process is a four stage Christian maturity and discipleship training programme designed to deepen members’ commitment to Christ and the local Church. We believe Christian maturity is a process which begins with knowing Christ. This sets in motion a life-long process of growing, serving and sharing Christ through the opportunities that God brings your way.

This 16 weeks  LDP3course is designed to help all new arrivals (both new and existing believers) the opportunity to learn or reinforce the fundamental truths of the Christian faith and therefore build their faith on a firm foundation and discover the true meaning of church membership in a relaxed atmosphere where all participants are free to ask or answer questions. It provides a clear overview of what it means to be a Christian, who we are as a church, what we are called to do, the benefits of involvement and expectations of members. 

 

In this course, which is the first level of the LDP programme, we answer important questions for healthy church life such as the following:

1. What does it mean to be a Christian and purposes of the church?
2. How can I be sure of my salvation?
3. How do I grow spiritually as a Christian?
4. What are the benefits and requirements for church membership?
5. What are the responsibilities of membership?
6. What are the vision, mission and strategy of this church?
7. How is this church organised?
8. How can I get involved?
9. What do I do next after I become a member?

The local church is the expression of Christ’s family and it leads members to discover why God placed them here on earth. It is the place for each member to achieve the purposes of God in their life time, here on earth. It is therefore the duty of the local Church to assist each member in their work. We do this by organising periodic and systematic training sessions designed to equip one another in understanding our gifts, talents and abilities, and how to harness those gifts for effective ministry, both within and outside the church. We know God has wonderful plan for your life and we are glad to have the opportunity to explain this plan and work with you. I look forward to the opportunity of praying and welcoming you into membership of this church family of God after the course!

I hope you enjoy every part of this course and have great fun! Remember, His (Jesus) banner over you is love (Songs of Solomon 2:4) and we love you too! Who Cares? We Care!

Yours Servant in Christ
