You should be quite familiar with the questionnaire routine by now. If you believe the concepts you have been studying, you should find real excitement in learning more about the God who made you, who made the universe and who loves you.

If you do not yet believe that the God of the Bible loves you we trust you are still finding these studies interesting. Tell us about your areas of doubt. If the lessons are helping you in some special way tell us about that as well.

These lessons are being brought to you by individuals (Jonathans) who believe there is nothing more important than having a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We have called such individuals Jonathans, and their purpose is to have a caring role in your life. Each set of answers that you complete is one further step toward an award that will be an ongoing encouragement to your spiritual development.
