We Believe: The Foundations of the Christian Faith


In-Person & Online

Wednesdays – 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
September 7th to November 16th


In times of confusion and conflict, the Church has often turned to its foundational doctrines and beliefs as a way of focusing people on the essentials of faith. In the Methodist tradition, the Articles of Religion and Confession of Faith, as well as Wesley’s sermons and Explanatory Notes have provided generations of people with a core understanding of Christianity in line with the early church and its historic creeds. Many Methodists have never read or studied these documents, however, and the result has often been what Methodist theologian Billy Abraham called “doctrinal amnesia.” 


In this study, Pastor Bob Kaylor will lead TLUMC through a study of these important documents that express our Christian faith within the Methodist tradition. Using the Articles of Religion as a framework, we’ll focus on doctrines like the Trinity, the order of salvation, the work of the Holy Spirit, the nature of the Church, and the sacraments, just to name a few. If you never took confirmation as a teenager (or even if you did and don’t remember it!) this course is for you! 


We’ll offer the course as a hybrid, meaning you can join in person or online. Our text for the course will be a new resource by Timothy Tennent titled, Foundations of the Christian Faith: A Resource for Catechesis and Disciple-Making. While it’s not essential to purchase the book for the course, it will help round out your learning. If you'd like a copy click here to order from seedbed.com, or request a copy when you register for the class. We will place a bulk order once we have final registration numbers. Books will cost $35 for a hardcover, and $25 for a digital copy.


Join us for this important study on the essentials of the Christian faith!
