Becoming Life-Long Followers of Jesus ChRist
At Holy Trinity, our hope is that every Christian would grow into a mature disciple of Jesus. Once the love of God in Jesus Christ, draws us into life with him, we are moved to give him our whole lives – our hearts, minds and bodies. We long to live with him as Lord!
Learning to live with Jesus as Lord is a life-long process. But where do you start? That's why we developed Foundations. Foundations is a three year cycle of essential courses offered on Sunday mornings after worship. They are designed to equip you to be a life-long follower of Christ.
Over a three year period, we offer the following essential classes:
- Jesus for Everyone (What is at the heart of the Christian faith?)*
- The Story (Reading and Understanding the Bible)
- What Do We Believe? (Understanding the Apostles Creed)
- Learning to Pray (The Lord’s Prayer)
- Faith and Culture (The Mission of the Church)
- A Reasonable Faith (Apologetics)
- Exalt: A People of Praise (Living as Worshippers)
*Required for membership
