One of the cornerstones of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19closeMatthew 28:19 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. . . . (ESV) ) is to “preach the gospel to every creature, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the son, and of the Holy Ghost.” However, the continuation of this statement (Matthew 28:20closeMatthew 28:20 20 “Teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (ESV) ) is just as important… it says, “teaching them to do whatsoever I have commanded you.” Jesus was clear that just being converted was not enough, but we must also be “discipled”. We must continually learn more about what it means to live for Christ.
For this reason, we encourage all our members to enroll in our self-paced study program called, “Christian Development Course“. This is a 2-level course consisting of 40-lessons in the first level and 30-lessons in the second, and covering a wide array of topics that are relevant to your growth as a Christian. As you progress through this program, you can earn rewards that will help you in your study and enjoyment of God’s word.
Some of the topics of study are:
- The Importance of the Word of God
