The mission of the Christian Education Ministry is to administer and coordinate programs or ways to facilitate the Spiritual Growth or Maturity of believers into a closer relationship with Christ.
The Goals of Christian Education are:
I. Spiritual Maturity / Develop Wisdom
Ephesians 4: 11-15 says 11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. 14 Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. 15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.
