To help us to grow as Christ’s disciples, we will be launching Equip on 14 January 2018. Equip aims to continue the good work done by the Discipleship Seminars. It is a teaching and training ministry that takes Ephesians 4:12 as its goal: “To equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ.”
Having believed in Christ, we belong to His body. As fellow members of the church, we all have a part to play in doing the work of ministry. This is the reason we study God’s word. Bible knowledge is essential for discipleship, but it is not the goal; rather it is the means to an end. God wants us to know His word in order to be equipped to minister to others. And when we do ministry in this way, we build up the church, the body of Christ.
We'll start the year with a new class on The Church, which will focus on our beliefs, identity, mission and life together as God's people. This class will teach through our Statement of Faith and Members' Covenant.
This class is for:
- Those who would like find out more about GBC before joining as a member;
- New members who have recently joined GBC;
- Long-time GBC members;
- And for anyone else who would like to understand what the Bible teaches about the church!
So, come and be a part of Equip and get equipped to do the Lord’s work!
