The purpose of the education ministry is that all persons be aware of God through God’s self-disclosure, especially God’s redeeming love as revealed in Jesus Christ.  The objective is that they become new persons in Christ enabled by the Holy Spirit to respond in faith and love.  The goal is that all persons will understand who they are in Christ and what their human situation means as they grow as children of God rooted in the Christian community.  The education ministry strives to equip all persons to live in obedience to the will of God in every relationship, fulfill their common lifework in the world, and endure in Christian hope.   


The purpose and goals of this ministry are accomplished through in-depth study of God's Holy Word.

Scriptural Basis:  "The gifts he gave were that some would be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until all of us come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to maturity, to the measure of the full stature of Christ." Ephesians 4:11-13
