Elm Grove 101
Training those that follow Him
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nation, baptizing them
in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the
Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever
I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always,
even unto the end of the world. Amen”
We believe that a key point to the ministry of Jesus was
training those that followed Him. In order to accomplish this
task we have been challenged to begin Elm Grove 101.
Elm Gove 101 is a discipleship class to help bring
believers in Christ to spiritual maturity and allow them to
find out the plan God has for their lives.
Salvation is just the beginning!
The Goals of Elm Grove 101
Getting people into the Word of God
It has been said that the Bible is the most purchased book but least read book in the world. This is a sad but true statement in many believers’ lives today. The reading and meditation upon the Word of God is key to the spiritual maturity of believers.
Teaching the truth of the Word of God
In order to share our faith we must have an understanding of the Word of God. Part of the Great Commission is to teach others what we have learned but this can be difficult. The Word of God is the instruction that we need as we complete the life journey God has for each us.
Preparing people for ministry in the local church
We believe that God’s plan for reaching the world during this time is through the local New Testament church. The practice of training people for ministry in the church is exactly what Jesus did during His earthly ministry. The church is responsible for training its people to serve and to help in the process of teaching others.
