Basics Series

The teaching ministry of Brackenhurst Baptist Church aims to establish believers, among other things, in sound doctrine and in a biblical understanding of and commitment to a healthy church. To this end, the church has created Basics of Church Membership and Basics of Christian Doctrine material (still under development) to help new believers become established.

The Basics of Church Membership is the material that all members of the church are required to complete as a part of the membership process. This ten-part course contains lessons on:

  1. The Bible
  2. The Gospel
  3. Church Membership
  4. Church Discipline
  5. The Ordinances
  6. Church Government
  7. Making Disciples
  8. Corporate Worship
  9. Church Associations
  10. Church Covenant

The Basics of Christian Doctrine is material that is made available as a means of one-on-one discipleship. We encourage members to familiarize themselves with this material and, where appropriate, to walk through this material with an existing member of the church once the Basics of Church Membership material is complete.

While some of this material (particularly in Basics of Church Membership) is somewhat specific to BBC, we have made it available here for the benefit of anyone who might find it helpful.
