Fall Class Descriptions (class time is 5:30-6:30 PM unless otherwise stated):
First Step – This class for new converts and prospective new members is designed to overview the heart of Christianity and Triad Baptist’s purpose. To sign up for this class please call the church office at (336) 996-7573.
Models for Disciples – Jesus parting instructions to His followers was to make disciples! During this class we’ll study key life principles (models) presented throughout the New Testament that believers are challenged to live by and teach others to follow. The models are essential for living a Christian life full of hope, peace, joy and purpose. The class is suitable for new believers looking to be discipled as well as those looking to disciple others.
Sunday Evening Bible Study – In the series entitled “Eternal Youth,” we will be exploring and discussing the concept of being a child of God and what it means to have “child-like faith.” Join us as we find the secret to Eternal Youth in the pages of God’s Word.
World Religions and Cults – This world is full of a variety of different belief systems, and undoubtedly you have someone in your own circle who believes in something other than the one true God. In this class will we be studying several different world religions and cults, including their origins, theology, and key differences with Christianity. Additionally, this class will focus on the best methods and strategies for sharing your faith with those of different religions. We will be using a variety of printed and video resources from teachers such as James White, Walter Martin, Ray Comfort, and more. Here are the religions and cults we are planning to dive into: Islam, Jehovah's Witnesses, Latter Day Saints, New Age/Occult, and Eastern Religions. Whether you are someone who is just curious about other beliefs, or you have someone specifically in your circle you need to reach out to, then this class is for you!
