Equipping for Life Classes (Sunday school classes for adults) are a strategic tool in the overall mission and vision of EBC—to equip and train disciples to be disciple-makers for Jesus Christ. As their name implies, Equipping for Life Classes help us hone in on the spiritual development of our core beliefs. Equipping for Life Classes are to guide and ground God’s people in Biblical theology, Spirit-led lives of worship, loving service, passionate evangelism and reproducing discipleship; all of which are to aim us at growth toward Christ-like maturity.
And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.
It is our desire to see our Equipping for Life Classes filled with disciple-makers of Jesus Christ; that we would be equipped and trained (rooted in truth) for the work of the ministry and in turn that we would reproduce disciple-making disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ (bearing fruit in love). We seek to facilitate growth toward Christ-like maturity through the knowledge and application of God’s Word.
