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.
Book of Mark – Jon Lilly & 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 like Him, we are called to serve others. This class will examine the life of Christ and pull out principles to help us be better servants of God and others.
Christian Theology – Prolegomena – Tim Wise:
This will be an introductory course to the discipline of systematic theology, and the first in a multi-year full spectrum theological curriculum. We will examine modern attitudes toward theology, various approaches to the study of theology, differing worldviews and how they fit within a biblical framework, and even criticisms of systematic theology, as well as much more. The lessons learned here will set the tone and frame our thinking for how we should seek to know God.
Suffering Righteously - Job - Carl Dingus:
What does the Bible say about the difficult times of the righteous? What is God’s connection to the existence of evil, sin, and suffering? And the question that faces us all at times is, why? Why would God allow His children to suffer so much? This class will attempt to find answers to these questions from the book of Job.
