Adult Bible School is OBC’s Sunday school hour bible program designed to lay the foundational truths essential for Christian life and service, preparing each person for ministry in the home, church, and community.
Distinctives of Adult Bible School:
Hebrews 13:20-21 “Now the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the eternal covenant, even Jesus our Lord, equip you in every good thing to do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.”
Laying a Christ-centered foundation, “through the blood of the eternal covenant, even Jesus our Lord...”
ABS is committed to bible-based instruction that sanctifies each believer under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. It is our intention to unfold the glories of Christ in justification, sanctification, and glorification in order to shape a Christ-centered worldview that impacts every area of life and ministry.
Building a Christ-conforming church, “equip you in every good thing to do His will...”
ABS is committed to equipping each believer with the foundational truths of God’s building manual, the Bible. The biblical equipping process aims at conformity to His will in every good thing. Consequently, it is our goal to communicate the glories of Christ through the ministry of discipleship and evangelism in so much as both discipleship and evangelism characterize every area of ministry in the body of Christ (Matthew 28:18-20).
Pursuing a Christ-consuming work,“working in us that which is pleasing in His sight through Jesus Christ...”
ABS is committed to equipping the saints in a work of ministry that pursues His all-consuming glory and pleasure. We will trace the glory of Christ throughout the storyline of the Bible so that we might rightly apply the truth of God’s Word to life for the glory of God in Christ. Consequently, ABS measures the success of each class in terms of the Christ-pleasing, faithful service of each believer in the home, the church, and the community.
