Fundamentals of the Faith


Fundamentals of the Faith

The Fundamentals of the Faith (FoF) is a two semester course, designed to bring you into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ by establishing you in the elemental truths of Christianity. Based on published discipleship curriculum (The Fundamentals of the Faith, Moody Publishers, 2009), FoF Part 1 will explore the first six lessons from the published curriculum and focus on the Scriptures, God the Father, God the Son, and salvation.  FoF Part 2 will address the Holy Spirit and various aspects of the Christian life. Your study will include the following:

  • Assignments from The Fundamentals of the Faith published curriculum.
  • Companion messages by Dr. John MacArthur (on MP3 CD).
  • Live teaching and discussion with trained FoF teachers (13 weeks).
  • Comprehensive Bible college level discussion notes (175 pages).

Each week we will discuss topics which answer questions such as: Who is God and what is He like?  How can Jesus be 100% God and 100% man?  What is the Bible, and how did we get it?  What is necessary for salvation?  Who is the Holy Spirit and wat are spiritual gifts? Is formal church membership important? How does God guide? These and many more issues will be discussed in class

Knowing what you believe and why you believe it is essential for every Christian. “Deep, rich, and well-organized,” “essential in my walk with Jesus,” “grew together as a couple by doing the homework,” and “the best Christian principles class I have taken,” are some of the comments from prior students.

Whether you are a seeker, new believer, or a Christian wanting theological grounding, FoF Part 1 explores the basic questions: Who is God and what is He like? What is the Bible, and how did we get it? What is salvation and why do I need it? I think I’m a Christian, but how can I know for sure? FoF Part 1 integrates the Fundamentals of the Faith (Moody Press) curriculum, audio messages by Dr. John MacArthur and classroom discussion with comprehensive notes to build believers and future leaders at Immanuel.

The Fundamentals of the Faith, Parts 1 and 2, is Immanuel’s “flagship” course, since it thoroughly explains what we believe. It is strongly recommended for every Immanuel member, especially those who teach in any capacity. (13 weeks)
