The first thing that we will teach newly saved believers is the need to obey the scripture and follow Christ in believer’s baptism. Showing them that it is testifying to others that they have chosen Christ.
We will teach them to tithe, that it is obeying and honouring God, with the first 10% of all their increase. That when they obey God with the tithe, he will bless them and open the windows of heaven.
Upon the first soul being saved and baptized, we will begin discipling them through bi-weekly Bible studies, grounding them in the doctrines of the scriptures.
Removal of Items
With Spiritism being so prevalent throughout Africa, it will be very important to show them through Scripture the need to remove any items they possess that are associated with Spiritism. If these items are not removed a short time after salvation their Spiritual growth will be stunted tremendously.
We will teach them the importance and need of daily reading of the Scripture. They will receive their very own Bible upon completion of a set course in Bible study.
Scripture Memorization and Meditation
We will challenge and teach them to memorize the Bible and commit it to heart through memorization and meditation on the scripture. We will give them weekly verses to memorize and meditate on; as they grow in Christ they will then be given larger portions of scripture.
We will teach them through the Bible the importance of having a strong prayer life, that much like a relationship with a family member, if you want a good relationship you must talk with them, the same is true with God, you must talk with him daily to build a strong relationship with Him. The importance of corporate prayer will also be emphasized to show them how the Church will be blessed and grow when the people of the Church come together and pray.
Teaching the need for good Godly Christian music will be important. If we can teach them to get rid of their worldly music and replace it with good Godly Christian music, we will see them grow in Christ at a faster rate.
