Christian Growth Series
Study Guide
by David W. Chadwell

      David Chadwell wrote this series of lessons in Cameroon, West Africa, in the early 1970s. Randy Green recently reprinted the lessons for use in a mission's outreach. Each lesson is quite simple. By design, the lessons were to be used by Christians in new congregations in that third world context. Some of those Christians could not read or write. Though Randy edited each lesson, occasionally words appear that were commonly used in Cameroon in the 1970s. Permission is granted for replacing any words with words that are more familiar in a current context of use before you reproduce and distribute these lessons for study purposes. (This is a modification of West-Ark's usual copyright notice.)
      The three introductory foundation lessons were recently added as preface lessons for the study. The original lessons were for students who were recently converted to Christ. David Chadwell wants those who study the lessons to understand that salvation through the crucified, resurrected Jesus is God's gift. Christians do not earn salvation. The lessons must not be studied as if they are an attempt to earn salvation. In Christ, the Christian learns to be a different person because he or she appreciates God's gift of salvation.
