Getting Equipped in the Word
We believe that there are two things on earth of eternal value; God's Word and the souls of men. It is our hearts desire and mission to invest God's Word into the souls of men. The ministries of Midtown Baptist Temple and C&YA are committed to Matthew 28:19-20:
"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, 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 alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen."
Discipleship 1 (D1)
During this process the believer is introduced to the 4 goals of Discipleship through a one on one systematic study of the core doctrines of our faith. This study contains vital and foundational truth to equip you for a victorious Christian life. With that said, Discipleship 1 is more than simply the transference of Biblical knowledge, it is about the investment and transfer of one life into another. Thus our focus is more on the modeling of a Christian life, than the simple downloading of information. We believe this is accomplished by placing a higher emphasis on authenticity over academia.
Discipleship 2 (D2)
This 9 month course builds upon the foundational applications discovered in D1. Discipleship 2 is a critical and fantastic resource for any believer who desires to lead and disciple others in the Word of God. This study provides great insights into the nature and philosophy of Discipleship, the importance of living a life of Biblical character, the 7 stages of spiritual growth, how to effectively study the Bible and how to disciple another believer.
Living Faith Bible Institute (LFBI)
This schooling is available to all Living Faith members with pastoral approval following D2. Living Faith Bible Institute serves an advanced equipping arm of like-minded churches whose mission is to mold every member into the image of Christ and to mobilize all to minister the Word of God to the world.
