The Foundation
Hebrews 6:1-3

Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto
perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works,
and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of
hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this will
we do, if God permit. (Hebrews 6:1-3 KJV)

The Principles of the Doctrine of Christ

The principles, or the first things, of the teachings of Jesus Christ. These are the things which
must be understood. They are a part of the milk of the word.

Perfection

Perfection is maturity. They needed to go beyond the acceptance of these truths.

Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ
Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung,
that I may win Christ, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of
the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by
faith: That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his
sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; If by any means I might attain unto the
resurrection of the dead. Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect:
but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ
Jesus. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting
those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I
press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us
therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise
minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. (Philippians 3:8-15 KJV)

The Foundation

These are the things upon which the faith and life of Christians are based.

Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in
Jerusalem. Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are
we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto
us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried
stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall
sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place. (Isaiah
28:14-17 KJV)

Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to
whom he is like: He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the
foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that
house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. But he that heareth, and doeth
not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the
stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.
(Luke 6:47-49 KJV)
According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid
the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth
thereupon. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. (1
Corinthians 3:10-11 KJV)

Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints,
and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets,
Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed
together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for
an habitation of God through the Spirit. (Ephesians 2:19-22 KJV)

Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain
riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy; That they do good, that
they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate;  Laying up in store
for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on
eternal life. (1 Timothy 6:17-19 KJV)
Repentance from Dead Works

The decision of mind to turn from the works of the flesh, and the works of the Law (OT), and to
not do them again.

Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the
kingdom of God, (Mark 1:14 KJV)

There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate
had mingled with their sacrifices. And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that
these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things?
I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Or those eighteen, upon
whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men
that dwelt in Jerusalem? I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
(Luke 13:1-5 KJV)

And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where
to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in
righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto
all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead. (Acts 17:30-31 KJV)

For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of
the world worketh death. For behold this selfsame thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort,
what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation,
yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what revenge! In all things
ye have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter. (2 Corinthians 7:10-11 KJV)
