A Look at the Basics... It is imperative that every believer be taught the foundational principles of living a life in and for Christ. What did Christ do for us? What must we do? What has He opened up for us? What is our penalty for denying Him access to our lives, and our benefit for accepting? In his lesson titled “Foundational Doctrines: A Look at the Basics”, Dr. John Pelizzari examines the basics of Christian belief. He shows through strict Biblical example God’s love in His plan for mankind, and the believer’s role in it. Dr. Pelizzari uses the only approved doctrine as a basis for his teaching: The Bible, the Word of God.
