Tree of Life Christian Church Catechism

Introduction

Tree of Life Christian Church produced this catechism as an expression of two priorities we hold as a church. We are committed to the teaching of the Word of God using every means that God places at our disposal. We are also committed to teaching our children and spiritually preparing them for the responsibilities that they will bear.

We believe that this catechism can be a powerful tool in the hands of parents toward the accomplishment of that purpose. The goal is to lay a foundation of truth in the hearts of the children upon which to build their lives.

Some are very familiar with the catechism format, having been exposed to catechism training in traditional churches growing up, while others may be completely unfamiliar with this approach. The dictionary defines catechism as, “a summary of the principles of a religion in the form of questions and answers.” It is according to this basic sense of the word that we have produced this study through the Scriptures.

This catechism is simply a series of one hundred questions and answers that cover the main Bible events from beginning to end. Of course, there is no way to teach everything in the Bible in only one hundred short answers, but our objective was to cover as an overview the whole story of the Bible. We have chosen the question and answer format to teach this material because it has the double benefit of stimulating further thought on the topics covered, as well as helping the reader to more easily remember the information.

The catechism is designed to be completed in one year by doing two questions per week for fifty weeks. The material has been organized so that each pair of questions works together as a single study. The schedule included in this booklet identifies how the questions are paired. Each Sunday morning all age groups of the children’s ministry classes of the church follow this schedule for their study.

We use the younger version for children through age seven, and we use the older version for ages eight and above. The two versions cover the same material for each question. The difference between the two versions is that we have simplified some of the more difficult to understand words from the older version to help the younger children grasp the main idea of the answers. The older version is meaty enough to benefit all ages through adults.

A Word To Parents

In the introduction, we identified the catechism as a powerful tool for parents. While written for children, we have produced this study to help parents to fulfill their spiritual responsibility to teach and train their children in the Word of God. Simply reviewing and discussing two questions and answers with your children each week would be a fruitful addition to your family’s devotional time.

Tree of Life Christian Church uses this catechism as the primary teaching curriculum for all age groups of our children’s ministry. We view the Sunday class study of the catechism lessons as a supplement to the main course. The main course for the children should be the instruction they are receiving each week at home from their parents. The limitation of the Sunday class is that it lasts under one hour each week, and there are many children per class. As a parent, you have many hours each week that could be prioritized to train your children in the faith. You are also given grace by God to give each child as much individualized attention and instruction as they need at the level appropriate for them.

You may choose to have your children memorize the questions and answers of the catechism (memorization comes much easier at an early age), or you may simply focus on their ability to answer the questions correctly in their own words. Keep in mind that the primary goal is to establish a foundation in their hearts of the true knowledge of the Lord.

Whether you set aside catechism time with your children each day, or once a week, the key to producing long-term fruit will be choosing a pattern and consistently sticking to it. One suggestion that many have found helpful is to review two questions and answers each night for a week at the family dinner table. The catechism would be a healthy addition to your family’s regular dinner conversation. You will have the opportunity to discover just what your children do and don’t understand about the Bible. Don’t be surprised if the conversation stretches you as the parent as well. Parents don’t underestimate the impact this kind of regular study and conversation would have on the hearts of your children.
