Elementary Principles

Hebrews 6 vs 1-3 tell us that there are some ‘elementary principles’, or if you will, some foundational subjects that Christians should understand. It is important to have a good grasp of the basic ‘framework’ of our faith, for one very important reason, and that is so that we can go onto perfection – becoming more Christ-like. Doctrine is fundamentally important, but is only the starting point. The real joy and objective of the Christian life is learning to love Jesus more each day, and to be ‘conformed to His image’ (Romans 8:29).
Hopefully these study notes on some key doctrinal topics will help you to put the pieces of the jigsaw together, so that we can step back and look at the beautiful picture created by Scripture, and it will come as no surprise to find that the picture is none other than Jesus Himself!
May God bless you as you grow in knowledge and His grace.

In the book of Matthew, we are told that for every idle […]
