➤ Baptism Into Christ —The fifth step to salvation is being buried with Christ by baptism into his death.
➤ Faithful Unto Death —The sixth step to salvation is continued obedience to Christ.
➤ Are You Actually a Christian? —If you cannot answer “yes” to these questions, then you have not yet ACTUALLY become a Christian. You need to correct this.
➤ Are You Actively a Christian? —If you cannot answer “yes” to these questions, then you are not ACTIVELY a Christian. You need to correct this.
➤ Are You Christian in Attitude? —If you cannot answer “yes” to these questions, then you do not have the ATTITUDE of a Christian. You need to correct this.
➤ Are You a Christian in Ambition? —If you cannot answer “yes” to these questions, then you do not have the AMBITION of a Christian. You need to correct this.
➤ How God Helps Us Keep His Commandments —An encouraging aspect of the providence of God.
➤ The Greatest Question Ever —It is no exaggeration to say that that the greatest question ever asked is, “What must I do to be saved?” We must ask what God would have us do. Nothing we do on our own initiative, without God's commandment, will be effective.
➤ The Fruit We Must Bear —This lesson attempts to identify the fruit that Christians are to bear with fullness.
➤ How Do You Believe? —Three stories in the Bible help us to distinguish three kinds of belief.
➤ Pleasing God —Once you become a Christian, you have a duty to God as much as he has a duty to you. God will bless you in every way, but you must respond by doing what pleases him.
➤ Is Baptism Immersion? —In this lesson we study what is sometimes called the form or action of baptism.
➤ Baby Baptism —Examines the question of whether babies should be baptized. Looks at the state of innocence, the question of nature, and the steps of obedience that accompany baptism.
➤ The Dying Thief —The story of the dying thief on the cross does not teach us how to become a Christian.
➤ The Second Time —A tract by Ron Graham published in the late 1950s by a group of young Christians
➤ The Good Man Cornelius —One of the most interesting cases of conversion recorded in the Bible.
➤ One, Two, Three —One giant problem, only two can solve it, and three immediate steps to take.
➤ Busting the Faith Only Myth —The idea that we are “saved by faith alone” is a widespread myth. We are not saved by faith alone. Your salvation depends on busting this myth and knowing the truth.
➤ The Power of Bible Examples —If we would understand the commands and ways of Christ, we need the examples that Scripture provides. Examples clarify the word and motivate us to obey it.
