Knowing and Doing: Foundations of Christian Living

Course Type: Workbook and Online

Units: 4

Description: This course is a topical study in applied doctrine. It derives its theme from Christ’s twofold emphasis on “hearing” His words (knowledge) and “doing” them (practice), found in Matthew 7:24, 26. While stressing practical application, the lessons maintain that true Christian living stems from a solid grounding in biblical doctrine.
