Foundations Bible Study Materials

Details on the Foundations Bible Study Materials

The purpose of the Foundations Discipleship Bible studies is to help people lay a foundation for life change that will last for the rest of their life.  Life change is about becoming more and more like Jesus.


“For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.”

1 Corinthians 3:11

Foundations follows the same process Jesus used to train His disciples:

Come – Come and get to know God. This is the starting point of life change where we learn who God is and how to accept Jesus for eternal life.

Grow – Grow in your relationship with God. Learn how to grow spiritually through God’s Word, prayer, and fellowship with other Christians.

Serve – Serve by giving and caring for others. Learn about your spiritual gifts and abilities and how to give to and serve God and others.

Go – Go and make disciples. Invest in the lives of others and invite them to accept Jesus when they are ready. Then make disciples by helping others go through this process of Come – Grow – Serve – Go.

The “Come” section is evangelistic.  Believers should go through Foundations for their own spiritual growth and see how to help an unbeliever get to know who God is, how to help them receive Christ for eternal life, and how to grow as a disciple.
