"How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent?"
The classes detailed here are part of our Discipleship process. For more information on Discipleship, please visit our Discipleship page.
Our mission statement declares that we are to continue and extend the mission of Jesus Christ and we believe that His work saves us from our sins and that having a relationship with Him makes us more and more Christlike. The heart of this process involves biblical teachings for knowing and following Jesus through the fundamentals of the Christian faith, enabling us to share the good news of Jesus to all people, and in turn, sending them to do the same.

What is an encounter with Jesus and how can we achieve that? What can happen when accepting Christ as Savior? And, why is following Christ the most important decision in our lives? An encounter with Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit is the most glorious experience we can ever have and through that encounter, lives are changed, renewed, and spirits are lifted up because the strength of Jesus' Holy Spirit transforms our whole being. This event provides a glimpse of what is to come for the following Encounter event and addresses key points on what to expect from Encounter and how to prepare.
Why is having an encounter important? How does the Bible reveal the work of Jesus on the cross? How does this affect our lives and how can we continue pursuing Christlike character? This 2-day event is an extensive session that focuses on the foundation of the Christian faith that is Jesus, and expounds on His works on the cross, in our hearts, and the power of the Holy Spirit. This session also introduces concepts in our lives with a faith-based foundation, such as: relationships, finances, and devotional life.
With a basic understanding of what we believe in as Christians and who Jesus is, as well as his works on the cross, in our lives, and the power of the Holy Spirit, this class focuses on further strengthening our relationship with God. What is our purpose in life? How should we display God's love through our character? And in effect, what will our lives be like as a result? This class also includes topics such as baptism, family, and the importance of the Bible.
This session takes place after School of Leaders 2.
SCHOOL OF LEADERS
School of Leaders 1
As Christians, we believe that every believer is a leader. What is salvation? What does it mean to truly repent? How do we overcome obstacles? This class reviews some topics learned from the Encounter series, with added emphasis and content for a deeper understanding of what it means to be a true Christian. Not only does this class focus on working on our daily lives as individuals, but also as a family. As a family, what are our roles? How do we strengthen communication between members? And, what is God's purpose for the family? As we are all called sons and daughters of God, we are also in a family where God is ultimately the Father. This subject aims to relate our relationship with God with our relationship with one another.
School of Leaders 2
With the Encounter series and School of Leaders 1 classes taken, a solid foundation of biblical knowledge, truths, and understanding the life and works of Jesus are established. Also, by the power of the Holy Spirit, through the acceptance of Jesus, we have established a relationship with Him and with others. How can we use our gifts to serve others? And, how can we make healthy disciples of Christ? This class focuses on what it means to evangelize and how we can build a community of believers through Cell Groups.
School of Leaders 3
What does it mean when we are called to lead others? What are important aspects of consolidation, counseling, and preaching? How can we use the gifts of the Holy Spirit with our gifts to serve others? This class is the last class offered in our Discipleship program and it highlights the making of a leader and what responsibilities take place as a result of leading in a Cell Group, the community, the family, and in the church.
