In the Scriptures, God calls every follower of Christ to maturity, ministry, and mission.
Maturity—grow in Christ
Ministry—serve the body of Christ
Mission—take Christ to the world
The Equipping Ministry provides you with the necessary tools to help you grow in each of these essential areas through specific hands-on classes. Our courses strengthen your understanding of the Bible and our faith, enable you to share your faith with others, and help you answer difficult questions about Christianity. Our goal is to build into the lives of our people the core biblical values that allow us all to see the gospel as the lens through which we view all of life.
Our mission is to follow the instructions God gave to us in Ephesians: “And he [Jesus] gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes.”
We want to help those in our Moody Church family develop a gospel–centered worldview, deepening their walk with the Lord and living out the gospel wherever God has placed them. We also seek to better equip them for leadership, whether in the church or in their own lives. It’s our prayer that each person who takes our classes will learn to lead in a Christ-centered, serving way that will serve as an example for others to follow.
