Foundations of the Faith

cover-Foundations-of-FaithThe Foundations of Faith teaching manual was a series of studies prepared for the use in Care Groups (House Groups), which have been in operation at Hockley Pentecostal Church since August 1984. The primary aim of the series was to ‘build up in the most holy faith’ as opposed to academic theology.

This is an excellent series of studies, to which much prayer, time and effort has been poured. I believe they are a clear presentation of the basis of the Christian faith, allowing those that study them to lay a solid ‘foundation’ on which they can build their Christian life. For a tree to stand strong, it needs a good root system, for us to stand strong in our faith, we need to have our ‘roots’ grounded in the Word of God. I believe these studies allow us to do just that.

IMS is very grateful to William R. Groves, the Director of Care Groups at Hockley Pentecostal Church, Birmingham, UK, for allowing us to make these teachings available for use and distribution.
