Christian Education

Led By:

The Center of Deliverance Christian Education & Training Ministry seeks to promote a learning atmosphere that is creative, practical, enjoyable, effective, and scripturally based in a way that is conducive to sound teaching principles, maximum student participation and attendance where learners and teachers are enthusiastic and comfortable accepting challenges so that we stimulate a desire for spiritual growth which will build confidence in learners and teachers and a greater motivation for lifelong learning.

Sunday School:

Sunday School classes provide age-appropriate Bible lessons and learning activities that are both fun and spiritually rich. Students learn about the character of God, the work of Christ, and the means of living in right relationship to Him. This is accomplished by presenting the whole council of God and demonstrating to students the unity, consistency, and sufficiency of the Scriptures for their lives.

Center of Deliverance Empowerment Institute Adult Bible Study:

Bible study is essential to our Christian walk. As we study God's Word, our personal relationship with God and others grow deeper and deeper. It empowers us to live for the Lord in every aspect of our lives. Our ministry is committed to personal discipleship of all of our members, both young and old. We have fashion curriculums for Adults and Youth in order to inspire self-study and personal spiritual growth.
We are excited about the start of our new Adult Bible Study Series titled “The Story”

The Story is an abridged, chronological Bible Study that will introduce you to 31 bible-based stories that reads like a novel. In each story, we will introduce you to biblical characters and their life experiences that you can relate to in some form or fashion that will empower and equip you as a believer to be victorious in this present world. We believe that as a student of this series, you will understand God’s Word more fully and engage with it more easily.

The Story brings the Bible to life, the broad scope of God’s message will penetrate hearts. People of all ages will be swept up in the story of God’s love and God’s plan for their lives.
