Lesson 1: The Bible
Though still on land, many people feel as if they are lost on a storm-tossed ocean. They are asking themselves questions. Where am I going? Am I lost? Will I ever find the right way? God has heard our questions and He has already given us a Book to guide our lives.

Before searching for the answers, let’s look together at the great Book. We will see how it was written and how it was given to us.

Lesson 2: God
In a way, God can be compared to a storm. Some people fear Him and others love Him—depending on what they have been told and what they do about it.

You cannot see God, but you can study what He does. In Lesson 1 we learned that the Bible that tells us all about God—about His qualities and how He deals with mankind. In this lesson we will look into the Bible and explore a few of the many things it has to say about God.

Lesson 4: Jesus Christ
A friend asked me many questions one day. Who is Jesus? How can He be human and divine at the same time? If He died, why do Christians say He is living? What is He doing now?

The best answers that I could find were in the Bible, the Word of God. In this lesson we will look at those same questions and find the answers that my friend wanted to know.

Lesson 6: The Holy Spirit
God’s Spirit won’t be felt in just one country, or minister to just one race of people—but over the whole earth. On the Day of Pentecost Peter spoke to the crowd representing at least 15 different language groups. In Lesson 5 we studied about salvation. Did you know that we are brought to salvation through the work of the Holy Spirit? Let’s study about the Holy Spirit and His work in us.

Lesson 7: The Church
The church in its larger sense is made up of all believers. It is called the body of Christ. God dwells among these believers by His Spirit. In Lesson 7 we studied about the Holy Spirit and some of His functions. One of the functions we did not mention is that He unites the church. In this lesson we will study what the church is, what it should be doing. and what is going to happen to it. Again, it is the Bible that will give us the right answers.

Lesson 9: The Future
The Bible is the one source of true predictions. Through His Word God gives us all that we need to know. There is no need to "read" tea leaves, or tarot cards. In fact, these and other forms of "magic" are forbidden by God.

If you have wondered about your future and about what will happen when Jesus comes again, you will be interested in studying this lesson. We will study about future judgments and the time of the Lord’s coming.

Lesson 10: The Law of God
In Lesson 9 we studied about what we will do in the future; in this lesson we will study what we must be doing in the present. God wrote the Ten Commandments on two tables of stone and gave them to the great leader of Israel, Moses, for his people. Even though they are ancient laws, they can be applied today.

Lesson 11: Our Relationship to God and others
We have learned that our main responsibility as Christian believers is to love God. As we studied in Lesson 10, we keep His commandments because we love Him. So, our relationship with God is one of love. This relationship of love extends to those around us as we show God's love to the world.
