Genesis 1-11: The Foundation of the Bible
Every major bible doctrine, including the Gospel, finds its roots directly or indirectly in these chapters. No wonder it is the most attacked portion of God's word. And yet, many Christians never give serious study to these chapters which record the following major historical events: the Creation, The Fall, The Flood, and The Tower of Babel. Each event will be examined in detail. Amazingly, we'll discover that these events are very relevant to many of the major moral issues of our day. join us and become better prepared to defend the truth of God's word.
At some point, most Christians have doubts that arise. We don’t know everything. However, we do know enough. We have a reasonable faith. Apologetics grounds our minds in understanding who God is and the reality in His created world. The more we understand the reasonableness of our faith, the more we trust, love, glorify and enjoy God. This course will uncover reality, Scriptures and the Christian Worldview and show how they perfectly integrate, making sense of life.
In an age when commitments are easily broken, it is critical that disciples of Christ obey two of God's basic commandments - to commit to a local church, and to serve one another through the use of spiritual gifts. As Hebrews 10:25 states. "Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another". This course will explain why and how you should join a local church, and what that means specifically here at CCBFC.
The Epistles of Peter
The Epistles of Peter are stuffed full of God's truths which every believer, whether living back then or now, need to be reminded of. This course will cover topics such as our salvation, sanctification, suffering, and service to the Lord Jesus Christ. Peter lays out some guidelines for the Believer, so that we might not just endure hardship but grow to maturity through it. Peter reminds us what we need for life and godliness that God has promised us. Peter also reminds us that this world is not our home and that we have so much more to look forward to in heaven.
Doctrine of the Holy Spirit
Because the Holy Spirit is not likened to a familiar familial figure, like the Father or the Son is, He can seem difficult to relate to. It is crucial to push through this fog, because He is the one Jesus ordained to help us, comfort us, and energize our Christian walk until He returns. This class will help you gain a clearer understanding of who God the Spirit is and be better able to relate to Him as we ought. Understanding the Spirit’s role helps us to live the Christian life as Jesus intends.
What did you Expect? Redeeming the Realities of Marriage
Somehow, someway, every marriage becomes a struggle. Everyone’s marriage morphs into something they didn’t intend it to be. You need something sturdier than romance. You need changed expectations, radical commitments, and grace. Join other couples as they seek to strengthen their marriage as we watch pastor and best-selling author Dr. Paul David Tripp to discover how to develop a marriage of unity, understanding, and love. Pastor Adam and co-teachers will be leading the class.
