At Daniels Bible Church we take seriously the command of Christ to make disciples from Matthew 28:19-20. As Christ goes on to explain in that passage that this is done through, "teaching them what so ever I have commanded you." The church then has a mandate to teach and train new and mature believers, so that they can in turn make disciples or teach and train others.
The Adult Education hour is a time in which we focus on as Paul puts it, "equipping the saints to do the work of the ministry." (Eph. 4:11) We have a four-year cycle of classes in which we attempt to take the principle of God's Word and work them into our daily lives. Each quarter we offer two classes. In one class we study one of the 66 books of the Bible or a Bible overview of the Old or New Testament. Another will be a theology class in which we look, in depth, at a particular doctrine of Scripture. In the final class we offer a practical Christian living class as well, in which we deal with practical Chirtsians issues. Over a four-year period these forty-eight distinct classes provide the foundation for training up disciple makers.
The Book Of James – Clifton Laws & Josh Harvey
James is a very practical book. He helps us to view trials, temptations, our anger, favoritism, words, riches, reactions and our wisdom from a biblical perspective. He takes sound theological principles and applies them to everyday life. However, James' primary purpose in writing this letter is to challenge believers to examine their faith to see if it is genuine saving faith. Will your faith stand the test?
Ecclesiology – Carl Dingus
Ecclesiology is a theology that most people don’t even think about. Everyone has their own opinion about the purpose, structure, and function of the church. The problem is that many people have cultural or unbiblical ideas of what the church is to be like. Believers must have a biblical view of the church in every area. This class will help formulate a proper biblical view.
Biblical Financial Principles - Gates & Alderman
The Bible says a lot about money. There are over 2000 Scripture verses that deal with money and possessions. One would think that Christians would not struggle over something that is so clear. However, one recent survey reported 46% of Americans suffer from stress related to financial problems. Also, it is a major contributing factor in divorce. The scriptures can bring harmony among couples that often disagree on this emotional subject.
