Believing in Jesus as Savior is the bottom line of the Christian faith, but to become a Christ-follower, we have to move beyond simply believing and put our faith into daily practice. With plenty of group interaction and opportunity to build relationships with others, Core Principles is an introduction to what it means to live a committed Christian lifestyle, and gives a closer look at the deeply held principles that drive the behavior of a fully committed follower of Jesus. Core Principles is a pre-requisite to membership at Tipp City UMC.

Cost: $20 per study guide 


Discovering Christian Life (DCL) is a course to help you understand the foundational truths of Christianity so that you can be firmly established in the faith, confident in what you believe, and effective in living the Christian life. The goal of DCL is to help you develop a biblical worldview with the ability to think through issues biblically to help answer the question, “What does every believer need to know to be fully established in the Christian faith?” DCL is made up of four twelve-week courses and employs a unique interactive and ordered learning process. At the end of the four courses, you should be well grounded in the foundational truths of Christianity, able to stand firm in sound doctrine, equipped for continued growth in your relationship with God, and more effective in your relationships with believers and nonbelievers. We will be starting Book I, Discovering the Christian Life.

This video series led by author Bruce Wilkinson will unpack what Jesus revealed about the direct link between what you do today and what you will experience after you die. Astoundingly, the majority of spiritual seekers around the world -- including millions who follow Jesus -- seem to have missed what He said. Could you be one? Dr. Wilkinson shows you what Jesus said about God's plan to reward you in eternity for what you do for Him today. What you'll discover will unlock the mystery of God's power, plan and will for your life. And you'll begin to live with the unshakable certainty that what you do today matters ... forever! This is a great follow-up to the “Heaven” class offered previously, but that class is not required as a pre-requisite for this one. Bring your Bibles!
