The Great I Am Statements
This workshop will explore the seven I Am statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John.

A Deeper Relationship with God – Where do I begin?
Do you desire a more intimate relationship with God, but sometimes just don’t know where to begin? In this workshop, you will learn what Spiritual growth really is and the steps needed to get you there. You will discover the common roadblocks that stop Christians from truly connecting with God, and how to break them down in your own life. You will also learn what it means to be spiritually crippled, how to make sure it doesn’t happen to you and how to leave the past in the past and embrace your future In Christ.
How Fit is Your Faith?
Over the course of one’s life you may have had the opportunity to look in the mirror and determined that you are physically unfit. Based on what you see you go about developing a plan to deal with your lack of physical fitness. How would you go about determining the fitness of your faith? Oh, and by the way, how fit is your faith? Do you have a healthy faith-life? Do you need a spiritual check-up? If you sense something might be wrong in your spiritual life, perhaps it’s time to examine your Christian walk; just how do you go about doing that? Take this workshop to find out and walk away with a plan.
Created to Worship: Worship in the Old and New Testaments
This class will study the worship styles of God in the Old and New Testaments with special attention to the elements of worship; the personnel, the words, the symbols, and the acts along with the theology underlying the literature of worship in both Testaments. The class will also discuss contemporary worship styles and whether or not one style is right for everyone.
The Apocalypse! – A Week in Revelation
The book of Revelation was written to seven churches as both encouragement and challenge. An apocalyptic letter, it relies on visions, symbols, and Old Testament references to reveal the ultimate fulfillment of God's promise given to Abraham in Genesis. The book is not a secret code that allows believers to decipher the timeline of Jesus's return.
Instead, it shows that every human kingdom eventually becomes Babylon and must be resisted. Jesus, the slain Lamb who died for the sins of the world, will return one day as King with His followers to prompt repentance. He will remove evil permanently and make all things anew.
That promise motivates every generation of God's people to remain faithful in the midst of persecution until their King returns.
What Christians Believe: The Five Essential Doctrines
There are five basic doctrines of the Christian Church. These doctrines put into simple language the basic theology of our faith, taking into account the full teaching of the Word of God in context. At the end of this workshop, you will have a better understanding as many Christians today from varied backgrounds and denominations fully believe and teach the five core doctrines of the faith.
1. The Trinity: God is one "What" and three "Who’s" with each "Who" possessing all the attributes of Deity and personality.
2. The Person of Jesus Christ: Jesus is 100% God and 100% man for all eternity.
3. The Second Coming: Jesus Christ is coming bodily to earth to rule and judge.
4. Salvation: It is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.
5. The Scripture: It is entirely inerrant and sufficient for all Christian life
The Great Commission
The Biblical Foundation of Your Role in the Great Commission
The Great Commission is one of the most important passages in the Holy Bible. It is a special calling from Jesus Christ to all of His followers to take specific action while on this earth. Everyone has a God-given role to play. This workshop will discuss: 1. The Power of the Great Commission (Phil. 4:13 and Matt. 28:18) 2. The Purpose of the Great Commission is to evangelize the unsaved, baptize new believers and to unite the unchurched with a local body (Matt. 28:19-20) 3. The Plan of the Great Commission is to go, witness and proclaim (Matt.29:19, Mark 16:15 and Acts 1:8) 4. The Promise of the Great Commission is His power and presence (Matt. 2818 7 20 and Acts 1:8). The discussion will strengthen your understanding of the role YOU play in the Great Commission, as defined in the Bible by the word of GOD, and how important it is that YOU take this directive, from JESUS CHRIST, seriously.
