In this study, the nature of saving faith is examined to reveal God’s call to faith and repentance. Upon completion, the believer will understand the Biblical mandate for repentance.
The course Biblical Repentance is taken from L.R. Shelton, Jr.’s booklet, “Biblical Repentance: The Need of the Hour.” It offers a good explanation of what true repentance is, based upon the Scriptures. In addition, it describes how repentance is given by the Holy Spirit, its integral part in regeneration (without a detailed discussion of the ordo salutis—the order of salvation), and the resulting marks of repentance in the believer’s life.

“When I was studying this course I felt the Spirit of God over me and a marvelous joy that I almost don’t have words to show you how the Lord is working in me. What I want in life is to be with the true and living God, to continue on with Him.” - Rathway, New Jersey
