The Christian Instruction Ministry exists to share God's love in Jesus Christ by teaching His Word, the Bible, to the men, women & children for whom Christ died to save.  We believe the Bible to be the true, infallible Word of God. Through the Bible, by the power of the Holy Spirit, God reveals to us our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Instruction in God's word trains the Christian to be an effective witness for the Lord Jesus Christ to others. Christians are called to study the Bible personally through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit until each one is matured into God's purpose for him. "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." (2 Timothy 3:16-17)  A personal relationship with the Lord Jesus grows as the Christian reads, studies, and meditates on God's Word (God speaks to us) and as one prays (we speak to God).

 

The Christian Instruction Staff considers it a privilege to minister God's truths week by week to each and every child, youth and adult.  For the youngest children, our goal is to instill in their hearts a love for God and His Word, the Bible.  Studies for youth & adults aim for relevance in living as Christians in today's culture. Classes for children range in age from Nursery through High School.  Bethany offers classes for Adults, Men, Women, and in-home small group studies (includes a Young Adult study).  In addition, a Bible Class is offered for those who are interested in joining the church or who are new to the Christian faith, which teaches the Bible from a Lutheran perspective.
