Christian Education and Discipleship

With an ever expanding congregation of registered members and countless visitors, Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church (WABC) is a dynamic, growing body of believers. Acts 2 describes what I like to describe as the “all in” church. The Acts 2 church put in all they had individually and collectively to be the hands, feet, and heart of Christ in that community. However, this is not just a picture of the past. It truly is the vision of what we desire WABC to become — an all in Christ-centered community.  With this in mind, our charge has been to develop a Christian education and discipleship training program that would work to equip and train our members, friends and surrounding communities to navigate these challenging times in which we live. The program has two components — I Want to Grow and I Want to Connect. 

  • I Want to Grow – Courses available through I Want to Grow range from introductory studies, designed to provide new believers a greater understanding of their decision to be a servant of Jesus Christ, to advanced studies, which gives opportunities for spiritual growth and fortitude of the Christian who is more established in the faith. Each study will ultimately lead the believer into a stronger, personal relationship with Jesus Christ as the Word works to undergird understanding and change lives.
  • I Want to Connect – Better understand the gifts God has entrusted you and move into a life of service in the body of Christ at WABC
  • I Want to Grow

    Christian Life Advancement Sunday School (CLASS)

    The Mission of CLASS is to provide Christ-center transformational Biblical instruction and activities to fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20)

    Christian Life Advancement Sunday School (CLASS) is one of the foundational pillars of the Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church's Christian Education/Discipleship Ministry. CLASS is firmly committed to Christian growth and transforming lives through personal and group interaction with the Word of God. The Word of God must be understood by the believer, embraced in his/her faith walk, and its biblical truths exhibited in the reality of daily living. CLASS serves a weekly platform for learners to explore the Bible. To that end, CLASS's purpose is to reach, teach the Bible, care for, witness to, fellowship with, and lead everyone - all ages - to worship our almighty God. Our focus is on people; and  to have them know more about God through the study of His Word.
