Discovery Bible Study - Foundations of Faith

Below is the Bible study we have been using in Mumena. Most people in Zambia believe in God and Jesus and believe that the Bible is his word. This study assumes that foundation and helps each person read some of the basic teachings of God.

The Bible study is a discussion. The questions help each person hear, obey, and share God's word.

Baptisms at Tundula

Sunday we visited Tundula and met with the church there. During the Bible Study, a young man taught about the importance of following Jesus. Many of the youth said that they wanted to follow Jesus. We taught about baptism and explained how someone gives their lives to God and becomes a follower of Jesus.

Many of the youth responded that they were serious about their commitment and wanted to be baptized. There were 7 girls from about 12 to 16 years and 1 young man in his 20s.

There was no river nearby, so we decided to take the car down about 5 miles to the nearest river. It took two trips to get everybody there.

Once we were there, we read 1 Peter 3:21 and explained again that baptism was a serious commitment and that each person should be promising themselves to God.

Benny Kachimpu who is one of the leaders at Tundula did the baptisms. His daughter was one of the girls who responded.
