"Now what?" "How does this Jesus thing work?" "What am I supposed to do next?" These are only a few of the difficult questions new followers ask when they make the decision to follow Christ. There should be a simple plan that explains the essentials of Christianity for young believers; a step-by-step tool with basic instructions to help them start right, stay strong, and finish well. Begin21 provides new believers (and their spiritual mentor) with clear directions as they embark on their new faith journey. The pages deliver answers to help them develop a personal relationship with Jesus, discover their new identity in Christ, and find their voice in God's story. As they learn to seek the Lord with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength, his character will become their character. They'll gain insights and practical skills to help them navigate the unchartered waters of the Christian life. Confusion will be replaced confidence, as young believers begin to experience Christ working through them to boldly proclaim, "I'm not ashamed."
