TRACK 1: YOUR CALL TO FULL DISCIPLESHIP
In this session, we cover the basics of salvation, the baptism, and the authenticity of the Word of God. The 316 verses covered are:
- The Savior and His Salvation: "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16).
- The Spirit Baptizer and His Baptism: “John answered them all, "I baptize you with water. But one more powerful than I will come, whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire” (Luke 3:16).
- The Word: “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16).
TRACK 2: GOD, WITH US
Session 2 will help you to learn about God Himself, the power or His Name, and the person of Jesus Christ.
- The Trinity: “And Jesus, when he was baptized went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon Him. And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased" (Matthew 3:16).
- The Name: “By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong. It is Jesus' name and the faith that comes through him that has given this complete healing to him, as you can all see” (Acts 3:16).
- The Seed: “Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,” who is Christ” (Galatians 3:16).
TRACK 3: THE GLORY, THE POWER, AND YOU
This section is about the authority of the believer, the responsibility of being a Christian, and how we can come to a true revelation of who Jesus really is.
- The Might: “That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man” (Ephesians 3:16).
- The Temple: “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” (1 Corinthians 3:16).
- The Glory: “Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.” (2 Corinthians 3:16-18).
TRACK 4: WALKING YOUR WALK
Even if we have a general idea of who God is, we must still come to terms with the people with whom we share life. This section speaks the life of the apostles, and how God expects us to live as brothers and sisters in Christ. It also explores what a life of worship would be in this fast moving, modern age.
- The Twelve: “Simon, to whom He gave the name Peter; James the son of Zebedee and John the brother of James, to whom He gave the name Boanerges, that is, “Sons of Thunder”; Andrew, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, Thaddaeus, Simon the Canaanite; and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed Him” (Mark 3:16-19).
- The Love: perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren” (1 John 3:16)
- The Worship: “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord” (Colossians 3:16).
- The Character: “For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing” (James 3:16).
TRACK 5: THE GOSPEL AND THE JUDGEMENT

- The Peace: “Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times in all ways. The Lord be with you all” (2 Thess 3:16).
