You can find the Doctrine Bible study series exclusively in the RightNow Media Bible Study Library. Direct link: RightNowMedia.org/Media/Series/2607.

What are the essential beliefs of Christianity? And how should a healthy understanding of doctrinal issues like The Trinity, the Church, sin and salvation impact the way we live and act toward God and others? 

We will all face times where our faith will be challenged, either by other people or by difficult circumstances. That's why it's critical that students have a foundational knowledge of the core beliefs of Christianity and a willing heart to obey God.

The Doctrine youth Bible study is a blend of teaching and real-life stories that will help students know the Truth and act on it. Take a look at this video overview of the series.

In these seven dynamic sessions, Francis Chan provides powerful teaching from Scripture to help teens understand the core of our Christian faith. Francis is a nationally-recognized speaker and author of Crazy Love and Forgotten God

At the beginning of each session, your students will experience a dramatic or funny illustration that ties in to the topic. At the front of the session on the doctrine of sin, this illustration with the ever-popular Zombie theme gets students thinking about how they get sucked into sin ... even when they are warned about the dangers! 

The stories you hear from students are their own real-life struggles with living out the essentials of their faith on a daily basis. In this real-life story from the series, Caroline talks about how she centered her life on cheerleading and what she realized when it all came crashing down. 

Caroline's story will remind students of the power of the Word of God and the importance of sharing it with others. Do you know any students, like Caroline, who are headed down the wrong path? Who is worshipping popularity or other idols? Who is struggling with sin? Who will you reach out to as you start this series?

To help you teach the Bible study lesson, you will use a downloadable Leader's Guide and group handouts available online to dig deep into Francis Chan's powerful teaching from the video. Take some time in advance to consider the Bible study questions and come up with personal examples to encourage discussion with your students.

As you prepare to lead this Bible study, are there any ways I can pray for you or help you facilitate?
