Allow Your Faith to Be Restored to the Original Pattern of Truth
This is not a traditional online Bible School Education. This free, one-of-a-kind education to Christ is designed especially to restore the original foundation of truth and pattern of faith to the church. The Second (New) Covenant doctrine of Christ will bring each believer into the fulness of Christ and bring the church into one Body.
Our program, God’s Intelligent Design for Christ-Centered Spiritual Transformation® (IDCCST ®) is Christian education written by Apostle Eric vonAnderseck and his wife, Teacher Maria vonAnderseck, and offered only by Second 8th Week® Ministries. What you will find here you will not find anywhere else.
Let’s take a look at what you’re going to learn in your New Covenant Courses...

Education is key to your success as a Christian. We must study to show ourselves approved to God. As Apostle Eric often says, “Knowledge is the crib of your growth.” God wants you to know how faith works, why the priesthood of each believer is important, how spiritual government operates, how to take confidence in the divine transformation of your soul, how to know and serve God, and be an active part in the Body of Christ. You can expect salvation through Jesus Christ to at last become a living reality once you set your feet upon the path of the covenant.
We have put together a comprehensive education for you to learn the New Covenant terms, commandments and contact points, how to serve and please God as a royal priest and experience God's power for the divine change – power that heals and restores your soul, birthing His nature within.
Covenant faith is simple, easy to learn, and powerful to live. To build a strong faith in Jesus Christ we begin by setting a solid foundation and from there move on to gain a really thorough understanding of how to function with this pattern to experience God’s living and abiding presence as He heals the soul and births His very life and nature within.
The Original New Covenant Pattern for Faith
Currently Christians are confused by the many different doctrines and faith models being taught. What are God’s expectations for faith? How can we have a faith free of the paradoxes of man? What are God's promises under His New Covenant and how do we obtain the fulness of Christ?
SIMPLE FAITH is one of 2 Series of courses offered under IDCCST® Christian Education. The courses are designed specifically to transition Christians OUT OF the mixture of faith models and man-made gospels and INTO Christ’s New Covenant, so believers may experience healing of the soul by spiritual regeneration and renewing of the mind.
Clear distinctions are made between the Old Covenant and the New Covenant terms, promises and faith activities enabling you to understand the boundaries of the New Covenant and special restrictions God placed upon faith to express the likeness of Christ.
Simple Faith mirrors the original KOP Series (also known as the Foundation Series), but is written in a more digestible, easy to read style, highlighting important teaching points to help learners get the most out of their studies.
Nowhere is this more observable than when introducing students to the 12 Elements of the Gospel. Special video teachings, lessons, and illustrations make learning the elements fun and interesting. Do you know what the 12 Elements are and why God gave them a binary design?
KOP Series (Foundation Series) of courses is everything you’ve come to expect as God, in His wisdom, presented the original foundation teaching to Apostle Eric vonAnderseck to cover everything the apostles of the first century church taught believers, from the Elements of the Gospel to the priesthood of your faith and the tools of the New Covenant, dream interpretation, the cycles of your growth, to the power of grace.
Whether you use the newly written Simple Faith Series or the original KOP Series, you are encouraged to dig into each lesson prayerfully and to work with the Holy Spirit who will assist you to restore your faith to the original pattern God designed in Jesus Christ for Christ-Centered spiritual transformation of your soul.
About Simple Faith is an Introductory Course and consists of 3 Lessons. The goal of this course is to explain to you why faith needs knowledge. Your faith has to work from the same frame of knowledge as God does. God has an expectation of forming a relationship with you and healing your soul and forming Christ in you. So He wants you to be able to connect your mind to the movement He is making. When faith is based on the knowledge God wants you to have then the fog of confusion begins to lift.
About Simple Faith: Lesson One
Learn how faith is made simple when knowledge unites us to God
In About Simple Faith Lesson One we will learn what happens when the connection between knowledge and faith is lost. Students not only learn how faith is made simple when knowledge unites us to God, but they learn the 2 reasons for New Covenant Faith in Jesus Christ becoming complicated: (1) The first reason is lack of covenant knowledge and (2) the second reason is deception.
When faith is based on the knowledge God wants you to have then the fog of confusion begins to lift. In About Simple Faith Lesson One we will learn what happens when the connection between knowledge and faith is lost.
About Simple Faith: Lesson Two
Find your purpose in God
Once you understand that knowledge is the secret to a powerful and living faith, what is the next step? The next step is to use the knowledge and start building a living faith in God. Knowledge is like a pile of wood sitting on the ground. What are you going to do with a pile of wood? You’ll want to take the knowledge and start building a house of faith for the Lord to inhabit!
About Simple Faith: Lesson Three
Gain understanding by observing three different perspectives
In part three we learn that man must find his purpose in God. When the likeness of Christ is not fulfilled, then purpose cannot be fulfilled, which results in lack, which then results in failure (feeling of shortcoming). Satan exploits faith by first removing the likeness of Christ from the contents of knowledge and then condemning the soul for not fulfilling its purpose.
Students will be able to state what happens when the connection between knowledge and faith is lost and list in their journal two reasons for faith becoming complicated. Students will also be able to disambiguate faith by comparing and contrasting the outcome of the knowledge of God to the outcome of Satan’s lie.Access the Course: About Simple Faith.
Free Online Training to the New Covenant!
What is Covenant is an Introductory Course and consists of 9 Lessons followed by a prayer. We know that the idea of God making a covenant with man by faith might not be understood by everyone. What does it mean to come into covenant with God? What happens when you come into covenant with God? How is covenant faith different from other Christian faiths?
Nine easy lessons will guide you through the covenant contract between you and God so that you will clearly understand what it means to come into covenant with Him, understand when this relationship begins, and understand the commitment you are making to God.
You will learn the 4 steps of covenant faith and why God placed this example first in Abraham to be fulfilled in Jesus Christ. You will learn the importance of each of the 4 steps to covenant faith and marvel to see the simplicity of God’s plan.
You will also learn about the token of the Spirit and why tongues accompanies this token as the sign and seal of God accepting your faith. We'll explain why tongues is the first tool of the covenant given by God to bear witness to your union with Him, and how God sustains His relationship with you by this token. Upon completion of the nine lessons you are invited to pray a prayer to exercise your faith and make a commitment to come into covenant with God to begin your walk with Him.

Apostles Carry the Blueprint of the Foundation of Faith!
Tour the Basics, a 4 part video series, was created to introduce the 12 Foundation Stones of the faith, which are the essential Elements of the Gospel. This series, by Teacher Maria vonAnderseck of Second 8th Week Ministries, answers the often asked question, How can I build a strong faith in Jesus Christ?
Strong faith begins with the basics, the ABCs of the covenant. Each Foundation Stone is a letter in God’s alphabet. God needs to teach each believer the language of the Spirit to learn how to communicate Christ to overcome the language of the flesh and reciprocate the likeness of Christ. So God begins by first building in you this solid foundation of truth.
Do you know the 12 Elements of the Gospel and how God designed them to work in a binary way to teach you how divine reciprocation works? Do you know what makes the doctrine of Christ wholesome?
Full color icons beautifully illustrate the teaching, making it easy to learn the meaning of each Foundation Stone. Each stone describes Jesus Christ, giving you practical knowledge that you can use to build the altar of Christ in your soul. This course is not about making you or your life perfect! It is about showing you how God provided Jesus Christ so that your faith can be perfect in Him, how to measure your faith to Jesus Christ, and God’s plan to return your soul to the likeness of Christ. A solid foundation of faith is vital.
