The Importance of Adult Christian Education
Christian Education is an important part of a person's discipleship process, that is, becoming more Christ-like. Hearing what the Bible has to say about it and sharing that process with others can be very beneficial.
At the heart of Christian Education is Bible study. Adult education is important because it is an opportunity for those attending to study the Word of God together, learning what it has to say as it pertains to our salvation, our lives, our families, our church and our world.
Studying the Bible is God’s idea:
2 Timothy 2: 15: Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. How can one correctly handle the word of truth if they don’t know that word?
2 Timothy 3: 16 – 17: All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. God has given us the scripture as a tool to be used and applied. It’s our duty to study and know it.
Adult Christian Education at Our Savior
In addition to the benefits of studying the Bible in general, studying in the adult class on Sunday morning at Our Savior has added benefits. It’s a great place to get to know others in the church. There is wonderful fellowship and we have fun.
Newcomers are always welcome. Bringing your Bible is helpful, but not necessary. There are Bibles available in the classroom.
