EMMAUS MINISTRY TRAINING
We can’t know God without knowing the Bible. At Grace, we’ve developed Emmaus Ministry Training to help you do just that. As Jesus and his disciples were walking the road to Emmaus, “beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, He explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning Himself” (Luke 24:27). We want to open the Bible to you as Jesus did for the disciples.
Emmaus Ministry Training will be an invaluable resource to you, whether you wish to learn more about leading your family, a small group or even preparing to lead your own church. We’ll take you as deep as you want to go!
Below are the upcoming classes that are being offered at Grace Church. You can click on a class and register online.
What is Baptism? In simple terms, being baptized is like putting on a wedding ring, it’s a response to a loved one and an outward symbol of internal commitment and truth. In the Bible, especially during Jesus’ life and right after that time, the pattern of baptism as a response to salvation is demonstrated. There is only one requirement, a personal decision to believe and accept the salvation of God through Jesus Christ (Acts 2:41, 8:12).
