Back to Basics is a seven-part course for teaching and reminding Christians about basic Biblical belief and behaviour.

It has just changed its name, as it was previously known as Firm Foundations.

Built around the study of seven key Biblical texts, Back to Basics adds stories and illustrations both from Christian history and our own day, songs and hymns old and new, discussion ideas and skills training material.

The overall result is an engaging and effective course for reinvigorating Christians in their understanding of God, the Gospel and their love and service of others.

“Great Discipling Resource”

Back to Basics is a great initial Discipling course for those who have recently become christians.


“First rate building blocks”

Attractively presented, this is of great use not only as an early discipleship course, but as a means of introducing interested people to what a Christian is.


“Excellent material”

Used as a sermon topic and for all our Bible Study groups and personal study, all at the same time. Clear and basic, Biblical and well presented.


“Firm Foundations”

A brilliant resource for new christians - on a one-to-one or in small groups. The layout is attractive and the contents are clear and thought-provoking. Leaders Notes also give useful tips. It gives the participants a great and reliable start to a new life of discipleship.


“This is the perfect follow up to an evangelistic course!”

We are about to start a Firm Foundations course for the 2nd time in 4 months. It has proved really helpful in getting Christians well founded on key biblical beliefs. The material is easy to use and well thought-out.
<BR>A great way to follow up an evangelistic course or even to get maturer Christians excited about "the basics" once again!


“Firm Foundations”

This is an excellent resource to use with small groups who are new to the Christian faith or to the concept of Bible study. To this end you might want to have it ready to run as a follow up to Christianity Explored or Alpha etc.
<BR>The "magazine" layout of the books is appealing as it takes your group through the basics rooting everything in Scripture and peppering it with examples from contemporary Christian lives and great Christians from the past.
<BR>This book not only introduces people to the great Christian themes of life and worship, it keys them into the Bible and flags up names which will hopefully become familiar to them as they grow in their faith.
<BR>There's no cringe here, just good challenging and inspiring sessions, it truly does provide firm foundations for those who need the basics. Enjoy.
