A "Guide to Eternal Life"

A five-part study written by Ian Terry. The study consists of a series of questions about God, Jesus, salvation, spiritual life, and the church. Each question includes Scriptures that provide the answer. This guide is designed for a Christian to work through with a non-Christian with the hope of bringing him to Christ. Lessons are formatted in brochure style. Each study should be printed on a single sheet of paper (front and back), and then the page should be folded in thirds.

Lesson 1 - The Path to Eternal Life
Lesson 2 - Stepping onto the Path
Lesson 3 - The Church
Lesson 4 - Worship in Spirit and in Truth
Lesson 5 - Continuing Faithfully With Jesus

A Bible Study Series

Another five-part series, written by Mike Knappier, introduces truth-seekers to Christianity. Work through the lessons in order, and they will be a guide through the Scriptures to explain God's plan for humanity, the problem of sin, Jesus' perfect sacrifice, how to be saved, and God's plan for His people. Again, these lessons are formatted in brochure style. To reduce confusion, print each study on a single sheet of paper (front and back) and then fold the sheet in thirds.

Lesson 1 - The Beginning
Lesson 2 - The Problem
Lesson 3 - The Blessing
Lesson 4 - The Gospel
Lesson 5 - The Church

Full instructions are provided to assist the Christian who is using these studies to help the non-Christian learn the gospel message and come to salvation.

A Basic Presentation of the Plan of Salvation

"Everyman's Guide to Salvation," written by David Roper, opens with a letter "to somebody special." It invites the truth-seeker to open his or her Bible and examine God's plan of salvation as presented by the inspired writers. The study is designed to be independent, but the Christian who provides these lessons to a loved one or an acquaintance should stand ready to answer some basic questions.
