NHE's Find True Identity Discipleship Part 1:
(takes approximately 24-to-36-months... i.e... 2-to-3-years)
After completing Find True Identity Discipleship 101—The Message of the Cross journey—a 3-to-6-month journey—some of you will spend another 2-to-3-years with us, walking through Basics.
Why? And why so long?
For many FTID 101 opens the door to new ideas, to new truths, to a new way of learning to think, choose, and feel. Psalm 23 captures this with familiar words:
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
He restores my soul. He revives my life. He exchanges my fleshly defaults for His thoughts and choices... yes, even His feelings. God's Life RESTORES! me. As we journeyed together through The Message of the Cross and begin Basics, we come to agree with Pastor Paul's famous words from the Bible's Philippians: There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears (Philippians 1:6, the Passion). God has promised to finish making you and me more and more like Jesus. Teaching us to overcome sin's hunts, haunts, and habits; as we embrace Jesus' Life more deeply each day (Titus 2:11-14).
Find True Identity Discipleship Basics Part 1 begins with The Getting Saved Section (Romans 1-4); which includes the Romans 1-4 Overview (a summary with Q&A), the Romans 1-4 Teachings and Q&As, and the Romans 1-4 diagnostiX. However, there are times the teachings and Q&As may be skipped. When the student and the mentor fully believe the student is truly born of God and knows their salvation is real and not an illusion. In other words, the student has a confident assurance that they're a true Christian, with a 1 John's Salvation Garden testimony to back up their claim. Directly moving them from the Romans 1-4 Overview to Basics Part 2.
Find True Identity Discipleship Basics Part 2 continues with The Living Saved Section (Romans 5-8); which includes the Romans 5-8 Overview (a review of FTID's 101—Message of the Cross). Followed by diving deeper into your personal Christian journey through the Romans 5-8 Teachings, Q&As, and diagnostiX. Learning how to exchange actively living from Adam's sin-dead-life, for actively learning how to live from Jesus' righteous Life of right living. The Grace Walk. The Faith Walk. The Truth Walk. And The Promise Walk. There's NO skipping in Basics Part 2.
Find True Identity Discipleship Basics Part 3 finishes with the Humbly Saved Section; which includes the following workshops: The Galatians Christian Message , The Ephesians Christian Motivation, The Philippians Christian Method, and The Colossians Christian Mindset.
In summary, Basics consists of 8 teachings, each followed by a Q&A and diagnostiX. Basics Part 3 finishes up with 4 workshops, in light of what you've learned in Parts 1 & 2.
