What is a church and how can you tell if it is healthy? This class will look at some basic marks of a healthy church.
Missions & Evangelism
The last command Jesus gave on the earth was to make disciple of all nations (Matthew 28:18-20). So, what does that look like? This class will look at what the Bible teaches about telling all people about the gospel of Jesus Christ and some practical ways to do it.
Christians are called to both know and defend the faith. This class will look at some different ways for believers to defend their faith as well as some ways to engage opposing beliefs and worldviews.
New Testament Survey
The New Testament contains the Apostles teachings that have been handed down for the church to know and believe. This class will provide a survey of those teaching, also known as the New Testament.
The Christian is not just called to believe; he is also called to obey. This class will provide some needed spiritual disciplines to help the Christian grow in both knowledge and obedience to the Lord.
The Bible is meant to be read and understood. But sometimes reading the Bible can seem too hard to understand. This class will provide some basic tools to understand how to read and interpret the Bible.
Basic Theology I & II
