The day when you stop growing in Christ, is the day that you enslave yourself to the world. Christian education is a major part of our faith-walk. It helps us grow in understanding with our God, and it helps us grow in ConneXion to our God as well. Going to Sunday School, Bible Studies, and Worship Service's are a start, but there is so much more out there that we can learn.
From the beginning of time, scholars, theologians, clergy and laity have all attempted to understand our God better. There is no need to re-create the wheel, we can learn and should learn from those who came before us.
We don't seek more knowledge for the sake of knowledge, or bragging, you don't have to be a scholar to be a Christian. But, the more you learn about Jesus, the more you will want to learn more. If you have questions feel free to contact us @ TheHopeConneXion@gmail.com.
