How do I share my faith? Why does a “Good God” allow so much evil in the world? What do I say to my friend who is thinking about terminating her pregnancy? How do I faithfully represent Christ to my same-sex attracted friends? Better still, how do I live out my faith while dealing with same-sex attraction? With all of the racial division in our country, how can I be used a vessel of healing? These are questions we deal with in real time. Here at Abundant Life, we are fiercely committed to equipping our people to live as thriving Christ followers in all of the dimensions of their lives. This is why our Equipping Center exists. These classes will outfit you with the tools needed so you can confidently share the love of Jesus with others, and here God say of you, “Well done.”

These classes will prepare you to be confident in expressing your Christian faith to those in your sphere of influence. You will be able to defend the Bible as absolute truth and inerrant. Essential Christian beliefs, the Trinity, the virgin birth, the resurrection and more will be addressed. When people express to you the statement: “Well we are all on the same path to God," you will be equipped to explain why we’re not in an intelligent and effective manner. World Views and world religions will also be discussed.
