of Salvation Army Teaching
An in-depth course in Christian teachings from a Salvation Army perspective.
Easy-to-understand, Foundations is for anyone who wants to go deeper into Christian truth.
More than a course in the Salvation Army doctrines, it tackles big questions, explores how the scriptures speak to those questions, and then shows where the doctrines come from.
Build an informed, compassionate faith.
Equip the saints and build up your church.
