Investing in Vision


The reason for creating these resources was to help me remember many of the things I have gleaned over the years from other people and through the counsel of the Holy Spirit. We can learn wonderful truths and then too easily forget them. Each link is a brief overview of a topic. At the end of this manual is a study guide for further discussion.

Growing in Christ

Growing in Christ

This ‘Growing in Christ’ basic Bible study course is designed primarily for new Christians who have a desire to know Christ personally and to become His follower. It continues on from the ‘New Life in Christ’ booklet. These studies may be done privately, with another person or in a group. However, it is best to discuss each completed study with a more mature Believer for guidance and encouragement. The New International Version of the Bible has been taken as the basic text for these studies. Other translations can be used as well.
