What is salvation? How does someone become a Christian? What does it mean to become like Jesus? To Be Like Jesus begins by helping students answer these important questions by establishing the foundation of what it means to be created in the image and likeness of God and shows how we have sinned and utterly fallen short of glorifying God as we should. Then, students will learn nine elements of the gospel message, its purpose and its promise. The second half of the curriculum focuses on the doctrine of sanctification—the process by which a Christian becomes more and more conformed to the likeness of Jesus. Students will study 19 specific commands of Scripture that highlight how they can love God most and become more like him such as worshiping God, being merciful, rejoicing in persecution, being a humble servant and serving God with your abilities.
Middle School (6th, 7th, 8th Grade)
Leader: Anna Bilhorn, Jeremy Bilhorn, and Opala Bilhorn
God is present and active in the world, orchestrating all things to serve His eternal purposes. All His purposes are good and right, and are accomplished with perfection. As the Sovereign Creator of the world (and everything in it!) God has the right, power, wisdom, and righteousness to rule the universe. The goal of My Purpose Will Stand is to so reveal God and His glorious work of providence that through the Holy Spirit’s work in the teaching of His Word, students would respond to God in faith as they look for God’s providence in all things—meditating on His works, seeing the big picture of God’s work in the world, and seeing the hand and heart of Jesus in all circumstances of their lives.
High School (9th, 10th, 11th, 12th Grade)
Leaders: Toni Flood and Larry Mackenzie
Foundations is a class about church doctrine offered to our high school students during the Sunday school hour. The curriculum builds from one year to another with the primary goal of helping our young adults to be biblically literate, doctrinally sound, and dedicated to living a Christian life. Students will also have the opportunity to be baptized and to become church members.
