A New Believer's Introduction to the Christian Life

A simple, doctrinally-sound, free resource for the new believer, explaining the basics of the Christian faith in 10 lessons.

The AFLC Discipleship Manual was birthed from an assignment at the Association Free Lutheran Theological Seminary in the Spring of 2007. Seminary students worked in small groups to write specific lessons relating to basic teachings of the Christian life. The resulting handbook was field tested in a various congregational settings.

Today, more than ever, we see the need for vigilance in training new believers in the Word of God. It is a blessing to add a Lutheran Discipleship Manual to our evangelism toolbox!

While a new Believer may go through the manual alone, ideally a mature Christian would lead the new believer through each lesson.
