This series of studies is ideal for Sunday school, new members' classes, prayer meeting topics, or individual use. It presents a brief historical background and the beliefs and practices of the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches.

Some of the highlights of this important series of studies include the emphasizing of the fact that the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches accepts the Bible to be the foundation for teaching and guidance, the meaning of salvation and what it includes, baptism, the service of feet washing, the Lord's Supper, the anointing of the sick, separation, and the Second Coming of Christ. These topics and a number of others are included in the excellent 13-chapter study guide.
