Equip Ministry

Whether you are exploring the Christian faith, beginning a relationship with Christ, or growing and maturing in your faith, we offer classes and resources designed to help you. Equip classes cover a wide range of topics from Bible study, theology and apologetics to biblical stewardship and leadership. Regardless of the topic, our goal is to help you grow in your knowledge and application of the truth.

Consider these four stages of a faith journey:
Discovering

You may have questions or doubts about what the Bible says, feel skeptical about the church, or may seek God in times of need. You want to know more about real faith and what “church” is all about.

Connecting

You may have questions about what living for Christ means and have an increasing desire to connect with God and His purpose for your life. Your desire has led you to consider three important relationships: your relationship with Christ, His Church, and developing community with other believers.

Growing & Enriching

You are growing in Christ through community with others and bearing spiritual fruit that represents being connected to Him. Growing in Christ is a natural and supernatural result of following Christ. As we grow in Christ through abiding, giving, and serving, we become more like Jesus. Your growing relationship with Him makes you want to know more about Jesus and be more like Him.

Maturing & Multiplying

You want to influence others and your world for Christ. You desire to do so by pouring your life into others. You want to bring Christ into the culture you encounter on a regular basis. You want to know how to defend the faith and influence people for the glory of God.

Poured Out: Facing Our Last Days With Hope
Hear the apostle Paul’s heart as we study – 1 and 2 Thessalonians, 1 and 2 Timothy, and Titus-which were written to correct wrong doctrine, to encourage believers to stand firm in their faith, and to model how to face our final days with Hope. Make no mistake, Paul’s goal was not to preserve his life but for his life to be Poured Out for Christ.
