  Study Tools

THE BASIC TENETS OF OUR FAITH

Heb. 6:1-3; 1 Tim. 4:14-16

Tenet => Something accepted as an important truth.

=> Any other set of established or fundamental beliefs.

Our moral and ethical values are based on them.

They are the things needed for Christian growth.

 Your “age” as a believer does not excuse you from these things – 1 Jn. 2:13.

 They are guaranteed to make you grow – 2 Pt. 1

 Without them you won’t grow – your Christianity will be empty and boring –1Tim 4:12ff.

 They give you reason to live as a believer.

 You cannot miss Heaven with them in your life.

 You cannot live victoriously on earth without them – 1 Tim. 4:16.

 There is no test, trial or temptation that you cannot overcome with these in your life – 2 Cor. 4; 10; Rom. 8:35ff.

 With them you will fulfill your role as light of the world, salt of the earth and an influential city or house on a hill top – Mat. 5:13ff; Is. 2:1; 60:1.

The Seven (7) Requirements Of Every Believer.

1. The study of the Word – 2 Tim. 2:15; Acts 6; Col. 3:16.

 Publicly => Small groups and general church meetings – Acts 2:41ff.

2. Prayer - Personal and Corporate – Lk. 22:46; 1 Tim. 2:1ff; Jm. 5:13, 16.

 Ensures we maintain our fellowship with our Father God and with one another.

3. The baptism with the Holy Spirit and fire – Acts 19:2.

 This ensures we walk in power – Lk. 24:48ff; Acts 1:8.

 Also ensures we’re not helpless – Rom. 8; Jn. 14:16.
