Seven-week Course

A crucial aspect of learning the way of Jesus is cultivating sound doctrine that leads to godly living. Our Essentials course covers the essentials of the Christian faith. It’s not exhaustive, but it aims to provide a foundation for a lifetime of growing in Christ, addressing such questions as:

  • Who is God?
  • What is the gospel?
  • How do I interpret Scripture?
  • Why is the church important?
  • How do I live as a Christian in LA?

This course is one of the few things at RLA we ask everyone to commit to at least once, whether you just heard the gospel or have been a believer for decades. If you’re interested in participating in next year’s Internship at Reality LA, Essentials is a prerequisite so this is your last opportunity to take the course before Internship applications open.


Essentials takes place over seven weeks. Capacity is limited, so we encourage you to sign up today to reserve a spot. We know seven weeks can seem like a big commitment, but it’s worth it for gaining a foundation for a lifetime of following Jesus.
