Along the Way is a book that explores the themes and topics of the Beginnings sessions in greater depth. It includes the Bible story that is the springboard for each week's session, additional Scripture references, and supplemental illustrations that expand upon the basic presentations.
Beginnings: An Introduction to the Christian Faith introduces twelve core beliefs and practices of believers in Christ. We invite inquirers to begin an intentional journey with Jesus. By the end of this study, participants will decide to explore the Christian life more deeply. The participant's companion book is an optional book that explores each session topic in more detail. These individual readings will enhance the participant's experience and can also be read separately for a personal study.
