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.

Galatians – Jon Lilly
The Book of Galatians is a rich book. It is a small book but it is packed full of information about Paul, and his early Christian life and development. But it is not a history book. It is a letter to struggling churches. God used these wayward churches in Galatia to cause Paul to write some of the best teaching concerning our justification by faith, God’s unmerited favor toward his children and their freedom from legalism. Also, in this book Paul lays out strong teaching about the Christian life showing believers what it means to “walk in the Spirit” and how that looks in the daily life of the believer.
