Our purpose in life – Firm Foundations #1

We begin the Firm Foundations course by asking the biggest question – what is our purpose in life? The Westminster Shorter Catechism gives this famous answer: “To glorify God and enjoy him forever”. But what does that mean, and how do we do it?

Firm Foundations – a faith that will last

Introducing a new course “Firm Foundations – building a faith that will last”.

This is a new course which I will be starting next week. Each new video will be uploaded to the YouTube channel.

The course itself is based on Thomas Watson’s classic book – a collection of sermons called A Body of Divinity. This in turn draws on the Westminster Shorter Catechism (published 1647). Generations of Christians have found Watson to be of immense spiritual and practical value, and in my opinion it’s hard to beat! This is why it’s still in print nearly 400 years later: it’s tried and tested.

I hope that you enjoy it – do subscribe on YouTube, or sign up to the mailing list to get new videos each week. You might also be interested in the other courses which are available on Understand the Bible, such as the Creed, the Ten Commandments and the Lord’s Prayer.
