Discipleship is fulfilled as you TRUST GOD and LOVE PEOPLE
Forward Church is committed to providing you with resources that empower transformation in your personal walk with Jesus. We are also committed to equipping you in the ministry of reconciliation so you will represent God well to those who need to hear the Gospel and experience His love that brings wholeness.
A disciple is someone who has moved beyond simply believing on Jesus for salvation and has begun to discipline their life to follow the teachings of Jesus. Jesus is our savior but he is also our Lord. This course will ground you in the basics of being a disciple of Jesus. We cover Assurance of Salvation, Mind Renewal, New Covenant Identity, Relationship with God and Victorious Living. This course was originally developed by Dr. James B. Richards as The Sponsoring Program.
COMMUNICATION AND BEHAVIOR PATTERNS
The body of Christ is commanded to walk in love toward one another but that takes developing good communication and conflict resolution skills. This course utilizes the DiSC profile as the foundation for understanding ourselves and how to better communicate with others. This course is offered periodically at Forward Church throughout the year.
How to study the bible INTROduction
The Bible is largely a collection of letters, poems and historical records that tell a unified story that leads to Jesus. There are multiple writing styles to understand and two original languages to interpret and there are millions of study resources available. This course will help you understand the validity of the Bible and how to study it from a contextual yet personal position. This course is offered periodically at Forward Church throughout the year.
FOUNDATIONS OF THE FAITH
In Hebrews 6 the Apostle Paul says there are 6 elementary doctrines of Christ; repentance from dead works, faith toward God, baptisms, laying on of hands, resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. This course will help you stand on a firm foundation of these integral principles. This course was developed by Dr. James B. Richards of Impact Ministries. This course is offered periodically at Forward Church throughout the year.
