An Introduction to Christian Beliefs

Bible Basics – Introduction

Before we engage in our study of what the Bible teaches on a number of vital subjects, it is important that we know some basic things about the Christian faith. This includes understanding certain truths about Christian doctrine, or Christian teaching. There are several issues that must be explored before one goes about studying what Christians believe.

In this book, we will look at these important matters. They include such things as: why it is important to study Christian doctrine, the necessity of having some type of system into which we can place the doctrines and a look at the various ways, or categories, in which Christian doctrine has been studied.

We will also discuss the great statements of faith, or creeds, that the church has produced in the past, as well as looking at some of the popular systems of theology that believers embrace today. This will give us a basic overview of how Christians have stated what they believe. These facts should help put into perspective everything else we learn concerning the truths of the Christian faith. Consequently, this introductory book will serve as the basis for all of the various books that will follow.

The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
