Studying and understanding major bible truths will provide a sure foundation for the Christian’s walk in this life and with a view to eternity. Without question, every portion of the bible is divinely-inspired truth and contains important revelations of God’s mind and His divine purposes. However, from among the huge variety of edifying Scripture themes, there are some topics which are timeless bible study foundations — that is, truths that should be central to the experience of every Christian.

Pastor Jim Feeney draws upon 44 years of Christian ministry experience to offer a focused collection of bible studies that will help provide the reader this “sure foundation” of Scriptural bedrock in his or her life. A case could certainly be made for the addition of more themes. But the bible truths offered below will certainly give the sincere seeker a great running start at building a walk with God that is strong and secure.

The Name of the Lord Jesus Christ — The Name of our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, gives victory over sin, sickness, demons, and death.

Being Used in Spiritual Gifts — The gifts of the Holy Spirit are not manifested only by a select few. You can be used in gifts of the Spirit!

Be Filled with the Spirit, Again and Again — Seek God daily to be continually full of the Holy Spirit.

Divine Healing | Spiritual Healing | Faith Healing — God healed in both the Old and the New Testaments. And He continues to heal today.

Jesus Heals Today — God is a Healer. Jesus, the Son of God, is a Healer. And He heals not just in the bible; Jesus heals today.

Pentecostal Beliefs — Much that passes today for being "Pentecostal" does not resemble biblical Pentecostal beliefs and practice.

What Is Biblical "Spirituality"? — Biblical spirituality is not spooky or weird behavior. Rather, it is grounded in simple bible principles.
