ABSTRACT
What does the Bible mean when it uses the term, ‘Walk With God?’ A familiar biblical expression may convey different things to different people. Such is the case concerning a person's walk with God. A broad range of mature Christians, writers and pastors have understood vastly different things by this biblical, yet simple and familiar concept. Two opposing views of determining a believer's walk with God are shown. One is attempting to walk with God by means of the things a person may or may not do. The other bases a person's walk on his or her relationship with God. The project then evaluated the instruction of relational principles and their influence on people's relationship with God. The study also surveyed pastors regarding their understanding of the concept, ‘walk with God.’ Further, the study sought to determine whether fundamentalist Baptist pastors can teach the relational aspects of a believer's walk with God. In this project a relational model is proposed, supported and presented to small groups Pastors agree that one who walks with God knows God's revealed will and acts on it in such a way as to enter into a strengthening relationship with God Himself. Teaching relational principles to believers, new or mature, does make a difference. People can be led to know what God wants in a Christian's relationship with Him.
