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 Mark – Dave Alderman
As Christians we are to pattern our life after Christ. This class will help you understand the life of Christ more fully. The theme of the book of Mark is “Christ as Servant.” He served both God and man perfectly and we are called to serve others as well. This class will examine the life of Christ and pull out principles to help us be better servants of God and others.
Apologetics – Dave Gilbert
Apologetics is a defense of the faith. How can we be prepared to give a defense for what we believe when there are so many false religions today: Muslims, Catholics, Jehovah Witnesses, Mormons and many more. They all have different worldviews? How can Christians keep up? This class will help with where to start? With a high view of Scripture there are certain presuppositions that Christians can bring to the table that help in evangelizing any religion.
Eschatology – Carl Dingus
This class will analyze the different views of the end times. It can be confusing with the various views: Pre, Post or Mid. Trib. rapture, Pre-millennialism or Amillennialism, Etc. How does the second coming of Christ differ from the rapture? Where will the church be during the millennium? What is the eternal state like? This class will address these questions and more.
