In the first step a new Christian or interested non-Christian is just learning about following Jesus.

We will help them to cover the following 6 areas:

Born Again

Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3 v 3

But to all who did receive him,who believed in his name,he gave the right to become children of God – John 1 v 12

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door,I will come into him and eat with him,and he with me. – Rev 3 v 20

Sin

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God Romans 3 v 23

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord – Romans 6 v 23

The Cross

 For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit – 1 Peter 3 v 18

but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners,Christ died for us. – Romans 5 v 8

How do I know I am saved?

I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life. –  1 John 5 v 13

Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgement,but has passed from death to life. – John 5 v 24

Jesus – the centre

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.  – 2 Cor 5 v 17

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. – Gal 2 v 20

Obedience to Jesus

I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. – Romans 12 v 1

Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.” – John 14 v 21
