The New Christian's Field Guide explores 52 crucial topics for any new believer in an easy-to-read format. Action steps and resources for further study are included in each chapter, ensuring growth in four key areas:
- Fundamentals of Christianity covers topics that form a foundation for everything in a new believer's walk with God.
- Discipleship: Becoming Like Jesus helps new Christians grow in this divine conspiracy set up to make them more like Christ.
- One Another equips new believers to deal with those sinners we call brother and sister, as we live out God's plan for community.
- Sharing the Light helps new Christians gain insight into the challenges of sharing Jesus with an unbelieving world.
This Book contains wisdom gained by 35 Christians of every background and is designed to impart their hard-won perspectives to our newest generation of disciples...it is indicative of a core conviction we hold in the church: every disciple is valuable, insightful, helpful and necessary. We're better together! Each one of us is called on by God to make our spiritual mark in our church family and in the world.
