More Details

With the increasing persecution of the church around the world, and now in the West, the themes of Philippians are more timely and pressing than ever.
Confident in Chirst is the introduction to the full eight-session Discipleship Explored course. This mini-course includes only the first session.
Discipleship Explored attempts to provide students with a comprehensive overview of Paul’s letter. The course unpacks each chapter in turn, and will help you answer questions which are key to living a joyful Christian life. How can we be confident of our salvation? Who is the Holy Spirit and what does he do? Why is church so important? Why read the Bible? What is righteousness and how do we get it? How can we know Jesus better? What difference does prayer make? And how can we be content in all circumstances, even when suffering?

Course Overview

  • Session 1: Confident in Christ

Course Format

Session 1 includes an introductory Bible study, a 10-­15 minute video, targeted questions to help you apply what you’ve learned, and a follow-­up study to help you dig deeper into the Bible and discover more on the same theme. 


Who is this mini-course for?
Confident in Christ is for anyone who wants to have an introductory look at the eight-session Discipleship Explored course.
The complete Discipleship Explored course is for Christians ­– whether brand new or veteran – who want to get the most joy from their Christian life. Each session unfolds and applies the message of Philippians, with a particular focus on the way the gospel changes everything. Originally designed as a follow­-up course to Christianity Explored, the course works well for any Christian.
What do I need to take this course?
You will need an internet connection and a Bible (ideally the NIV).
Why consider using Discipleship Explored at your church?
The full eight-session Philippians' study, Discipleship Explored, can be taken as an independent study, as a shared, one­-to-­one course, or ideally as part of a larger group in your local church. The Bible studies and application questions can be very fruitfully explored and discussed in this communal context.
