  • New Believers
  • Those who have never learned foundations of the faith.
  • Those who need a refresher in the foundations of the faith.

MODULE 1 CLASS – Abiding in Christ

In John 15:5 Jesus says, I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. If you’ve never understood what it means to abide in Christ, this is the perfect introductory class for you. Even if you need a refresher on the foundations of the faith. In this class you will learn the important foundations of the faith and what it means to be a Christ follower.

Doctrine & Theology

A series of classes teaching some of the major doctrines of the Christian church. The sessions in this track will be based on Dr. Grudem’s book, Systematic Theology (2nd edition) but the book is NOT required for the class, but is recommended as a primary resource for a Christian library.

  • Those who want to learn how to grow in the area of worship and devotion in all aspects of their lives.

MODULE 1 CLASS – Sacred Pathways

When do you feel most connected to God? Have you ever wanted to be more in touch with God’s presence but you weren’t sure how to do that? The fact of the matter is that God is always present and active. That never changes. But tuning into what He wants to say to you, do through you, and feeling, not just knowing of His presence, may actually have something to do with how you are wired, how you approach Him. In this class, we will look at a variety of ways to connect with God, drawing from the resource, Sacred Pathways by Gary Thomas, as well as personal experience, authentic discussion, and practical applications.

BOOK PURCHASE REQUIRED – The book “Sacred Pathways” by Gary Thomas is required for this class. To purchase, please click here. Purchase the eBook version (recommendation) for instant access.

  • Technically for anyone, but aimed at those who know the foundations of the faith who understand the basics of Bible study.

MODULE 1 CLASS – 1 John (Part II)

Now, decades later, Pastor John writes to the church a letter that focuses on love, faith, and standing in God’s promises of eternal salvation. It is one of the more encouraging and helpful books of the New Testament. It is filled with inspiration and reassurance about the core truths of the Gospel. Join Pastor Gary for a 7 week verse by verse look of this New Testament gem.

Upcoming Discipleship Events

Up, In & Out

Discipleship is all about following, and becoming more like, Jesus. What better way to become like Jesus than to model our lives after His? Boiled down to its simplest form, Jesus focused on three areas in everything He did: Up, In, and Out.

At Bridgeway, we focus on those three areas through all of our ministries and programs. We encourage you to take advantage of those specific ministries and programs that will help you be transformed more into the likeness of Jesus – Up, In, and Out!

And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
