Purpose: To provide people of all ages the opportunity to study God’s Word, to grow more into His image and show themselves approved unto God.
Ministry Mission Statement: We endeavor to build champions for the kingdom of God by using all scripture for teaching sound doctrine, for reproof, correction and instruction in righteousness.
What the Word says…about the Word
Matthew 28:18 is our “Great Commission”.
Titus chapter 2 tells us to teach what is in accordance with sound doctrine.
2 Timothy 3:16 tells us that all scripture is given by the inspiration of God and is profitable for instruction in righteousness.
We build our Christian Education Program on these principles.
Thank you for your interest in our Christian Education Ministry. Our goal is to help you fulfill your purpose with God by providing you with the educational tools to study and apply God’s Word to your life. God has provided us with many gifted, spiritual teachers that endeavor to accomplish this through our Discipleship program plus many other programs we have to offer.
We provide educational opportunities for everyone in the family. If you have any questions or need more information, just call the church office at (301) 663-5444 and we will have someone from the Christian Education Department get back to you as soon as possible. We would be honored to be a part of what God is doing in your life!
