LEARN (Leaders Equipping And Resourcing Network) Global recognizes the need for spiritual development in every Christian believer's life. To assist in this development, responsibility leans on church leaders to teach accurate biblical doctrine so that the church will imitate Jesus Christ both within the local and international context.
However, in many parts of the world poverty, unstable politics, along with the growth of false teaching, has increased the challenge for the church leader. LEARN Global aims to assist in developing and resourcing church leaders so that they can teach and explain the Bible accurately and confidently. LEARN Global, therefore, promotes and strengthens effective discipleship through the local Church that will strengthen Christian values in individuals, families, churches, and society as a whole.
LEARN Global delivers a bespoke electronic platform designed to advance personal and communal theological development. Operating as Web and Android applications (Apps), the platform allows the scholar to engage with carefully selected Christian resources at their own pace with all the convenience of an e-reader. Other functions include reading plans, multiple Bible versions, Bible dictionaries, sermon creation and much more (read more on the Apps page).
LEARN Global recognizes study support is essential and consequently a learner’s progress can be monitored and tested remotely. The platform also protects the copyright of resources through digital encryption along with restricting operation to authorized users.

There is one God who exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God is the almighty Creator, Saviour, and Judge who governs all things according to His sovereign will and accomplishes His purposes through creation and in the Church to His glory.
God the Father is the source of all that is good. He initiates creation and redemption which He accomplishes through His Son and the Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ, both fully God and fully man, entered history as Saviour of the world. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, and lived an exemplary, sinless life in perfect submission to the Father and in loving relationships with others. He died on a cross, rose bodily, and ascended to heaven where He mediates for His people and is exalted as Lord of all.
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit makes the work of Christ effective to sinners, giving spiritual life and placing them into the Church. He indwells all believers, empowers them to love, serve, witness, and obey God, equips them with gifts, and transforms them to be increasingly like Christ.
Humanity is the pinnacle of God's earthly creation, who were created to bear His image, have a relationship with Him, and are the object of His redeeming love. All people have sinned. This results in guilt, death, and alienation from God as well as the defacing of every aspect of human nature. People are unable to save themselves from sin’s penalty and power and from Satan’s dominion.
Christ's sacrificial death, which He willingly bore the punishment due to sinners, is the only and all-sufficient basis of God's provision of salvation for all people of every culture and age which expressed His love and satisfied His justice. By God's grace the repentant sinner, through trusting alone in the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour, is put right with God, adopted by the Father into His family and receives eternal life
The Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, is God's written Word, revealing for all peoples His character and purposes. It is the final authority in all matters relating to belief and behaviour. The Holy Spirit moved the human authors of the Bible so that what they wrote is inspired, fully reliable, and without error in all it affirms.
The universal Church is made up of all who have placed their trust in Christ’s sacrifice resulting in being born of the Spirit. It finds local expression in communities of believers called by God to worship, fellowship, proclaim the Gospel, and make disciples among all peoples, reflect God’s character, engage in works of compassion, contend for truth and justice, and celebrate baptism and communion.
The Spirit World
The holy angels are personal spirit beings who glorify God, serve Him, and minister to His people. Satan is a spiritual being who was created by God but fell through sin. He, along with other evil spirits, is the enemy of God and humanity, has been defeated by the work of Christ, is subject to God’s authority and faces eternal condemnation.
The Lord Jesus Christ will visibly return to the earth in glory and accomplish the final triumph over evil. God will make everything new. The dead will be raised and judged. Unbelievers will suffer eternal punishment in separation from God; believers will enter a life of eternal joy in fellowship with God, glorifying Him forever.
