11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. (Ephesians 4:11-13 NKJV)

Part of the responsibility of the church is to equip its members for the work of whatever ministry Christ has called them to. We are committed to teaching, equipping, and building up God’s people through Sunday School, Small Groups, various training and conference opportunities, solid Bible preaching, and other means. We want every believer to be armed with the “shield of faith that extinguishes the flaming missiles of the evil one,” and with “the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”
