3 Courses:
intro to discipleship
Course Description:
How do we live as disciples of Jesus? If God wanted, He could have taken you up to heaven as soon as you became a Christian. But He didn’t. He has a plan for you. This class will introduce you to how you can participate in the work God is doing in His world.
Objectives:
  • Relate biblically, theologically, and practically to the fulfillment of the Great Commission.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of discipleship at Old Fort Baptist Church.
  • Learn about the importance of discipleship and how to incorporate discipleship into the way you study God’s Word, relate to one another at church, and live life with Gospel intentionality.
How to study the bible
Course Description:
As a professing Christian, you believe the Bible, but do you know why you can trust the text? There are different ways to interpret the Bible and that will impact what a person believes. This class will introduce the basic principles of Bible interpretation to help you strengthen your Bible study, your love of God, and your confidence in understanding the meaning and significance of the Bible.
Objectives:
  • Explain the role of the author, text, and read in the interpretive process.
  • Display competence in determining the meaning of a text.
  • Develop an understanding of how to interpret different forms of literature in the Bible.
