Every Christian needs good foundations in their life. Along with accompanying videos, this book focuses on these foundations, brought together in six helpful units.

  • Personal Foundations

  • A New Creation

  • Kingdom Life

  • Kingdom Warfare

  • Jesus Is Building His Church

  • Belonging To A Church

The teaching in Foundations was originally developed within the context of a local church and, over the years, has been delivered all over the world in a number of ways and a wide variety of settings. Whether run as a 6 week course for a group or through a one-to-one discipleship relationship, the easy to follow sessions, supported by biblical truth, make this course an essential addition to every Christian’s journey.

“This is such a helpful resource as we look to make disciples. It takes biblical teaching and presents it in an accessible and practical way, providing a great foundation for growing maturity.”
Paul Mann, Senior Leader, King’s Church, Hastings & Bexhill, UK
“John has a wonderful grace of making the Bible live and helping believers to build their lives on strong biblical foundations. I have used Foundations in church and individual contexts, and wholeheartedly recommend this introduction to the life of discipleship.”
Guy Miller, Apostolic leader, Commission
“An excellent complement to the Freedom In Christ Course that helps Christians understand practically how to live as a fruitful disciple and become a fruitful part of their church family. Particularly good for new Christians or new church members.”
Steve Goss, International Director for Freedom in Christ Ministries
“It has been my privilege over the last eight years to work alongside John using the Foundations material in Hope Church. Without fail, it encourages people in their faith, challenges people to be better followers of Christ and, when used well, teases out the key issues in people’s hearts. I have every confidence that the updated version will continue to be a blessing.”
Steve Chick, Lead Elder, Hope Church, Winchester, UK
“This isn’t just another ‘basics in the faith’ book. It’s meaty and it delivers! We believe that this is one of the best discipleship resources we’ve come across. Simply brilliant!”
Phil & Esther Daniels, Lead Pastors / Church Planters Eterniti Church, Golborne, Wigan, UK
“The Apostle Paul described his ministry as that of a ‘master builder’. He was extremely skilled at building a foundation of sound doctrine in every church. John Groves’ Foundations is an excellent tool for doing the same in every believer’s life. I have seen this course contribute to the building of healthy churches across the world. John is a highly respected pastor-teacher who has the gift to make scripture the solid ground on which we can build strong lives and strong churches.”
Chris Kilby, Leader, Life Church, Southampton. Author of 'Equipped'
“It is difficult to put a value on a good introductory course for new believers. How vital it is for the person recently converted to be rooted and grounded in their newfound faith.”
Terry Virgo, Founder, Newfrontiers
