1 Timothy 4:7b-8
““...discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness; for bodily discipline is only of little profit, but godliness is profitable for all things,
since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.” ”
What are DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING CLASSES?
Every Christian is called to be a disciple of Jesus. The word disciple means to be a learner or a student, and it conveys the idea of following and imitating a master, in our context, the Lord Himself.
Discipleship Training at Foothill Christian Fellowship is a series of classes aimed at building up the church so that we can effectively know and follow the Lord Jesus Christ.
We provide a variety of classes that fall into three separate tracks…
1. Bible Survey — this track aims at getting us more grounded and established in Scripture.
2. History & Theology — this track strengthens our grasp and command of sound Bible doctrine. In addition, we will get an introduction to the history of God’s work in and through the Church.
3. Christian Discipleship — is a broad track that seeks to instruct us in the fundamental disciplines of the Christian life, as well as train us in the more practical aspects of following Christ.
WHEN are DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING CLASSES?
All classes meet every Sunday from 9:00-10:00am.
We will be having new classes every 13 weeks. Our summer classes run June 16th through September 8th.
1. OLD TESTAMENT SURVEY II Location: Room 5
This is part two of our overview of the Older Testament and will cover Ecclesiastes through Malachi. If you did not take OT Survey I, you may want to wait until you can take the classes in order.
2. MISSIONS Location: Room 2
This class will help us biblically understand why and how we do missions. Whether going or sending, the task of carrying the gospel to the ends of the earth is the task of the church. What part will you play?
3. CHURCH HISTORY Location: Main Building
In studying church history we will consider God’s providential care and protection of His people over the centuries since Pentecost. In our study together we will find ourselves better equipped to understand our present context in light of the doctrinal disagreements of the past. We will be encouraged by examples of brothers and sisters from various contexts who labored to bring their faith to bear upon the world in which they lived.
