Foundations for the Flock
Truths About the Church for All the Saints
In recent years Conrad Mbewe has become well known as a preacher around the world. His clear exposition and powerful application of Scripture has earned him a broad and attentive international audience. But what many do not know is he is also a prolific author in his own country of Zambia. He has written numerous articles and booklets to address the spiritual needs of his nation and its churches.
This writing ministry, together with his powerful preaching and his experience in church-planting efforts, have made him one of the leaders of African evangelical Christianity. From the wide assortment of his work we have gathered together his more substantial material dealing with the church.
This title, Foundations for the Flock, is an effort to take some of his previously published material and make it available to the rest of the world. We are confident it will edify Christians of other nations just as it has done in Zambia.
The theme of this book is church life, so every part of it deals in some way with this theme.
Key Themes in this Volume:
The first chapter is called “Your Baptismal Class Notes,” because it was originally a document written to prepare new converts for baptism and church membership.

- Biblical Church Government
- The Lord’s Supper
- The Role of Women in the Church
- Challenges in Today’s Pastoral Ministry
- Worship in Spirit and Truth
