There is more to Christian life than just salvation. The Bible says that the new Christian needs to desire the milk of the Word. “As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:” (1 Peter 2:2). We must not remain babes in the faith, we must grow.
That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into Him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: (Eph 2:14-15).
For this reason alone, we need to grow in the faith. Here, we present materials for those who are already Christians, to help them grow in the faith. Topics including worshiping God: “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.” (Matt 22:37), doctrine: “Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.” (1 Tim 4:13), service: “I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.”(Rev 2:19), holy living: “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” (Rom 12:1), soulwinning: “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.” (Prov 11:30), and standards and convictions: “One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.” (Rom 14:15)..
The Principles of the Doctrine of Christ
The Principles of the Doctrine of Christ are the very basic doctrines of the faith, and are very important for all Christians to know. Hebrews Chapter 6 tells us that we must know these in order to go on to perfection. These articles are written so that all, especially the new Christian, will be grounded in the faith.
