In the natural world, before erecting a building, the proper foundations that will sustain it must be established. The Bible declares that we, as believers, are the house of the Lord, the temple of the living God. Therefore, in this course we will study the importance of building our life upon a solid foundation and we will study the six spiritual foundations that are given in Hebrews 6:1–2 and are necessary to build upon.
Through this study we will understand with greater clarity some commonly used terms such as “faith” and “repentance.” We will also learn the meaning of more complex terms such as “the resurrection of the dead” and “eternal judgment.” These foundations are used from the beginning of our spiritual walk and are necessary until the end of it. We therefore wish to study them so that we may continue toward perfection, as described in Hebrews 6:1.
