Anything alive grows and models some of the same characteristics as the fruit from which it was taken. Jesus said, “The words I have spoken to you are full of the Spirit and life.” (John 6:63) Our goal is to teach believers to be like Jesus.

This class is foundational and builds upon the scriptures as recorded in Hebrews 6:1-3 which declares, “Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and faith towards God, of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of the resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgement. And this we will do, if God permit.”
Vacation Bible School
The summer season provides an excellent opportunity to infuse a week-long Bible-centered study time for children and adults.
