Discipleship Training

What is Discipleship Training?

We believe every believer should be growing in their faith and walk with the Lord. Discipleship groups are the best way to plug in and grow deeper through God’s Word. We have a group meeting on Sunday evening at 5:00pm, on Wednesday evening at 6:00pm, and some throughout the week. Check out a list of our events below. If you have any questions or would like to know more about Discipleship Training, please email rpoe@tabernaclebaptist.org.

Another Gospel? A Lifelong Christian Seeks Truth in Response to Progressive Christianity by Alisa Childers
Leader: Misty Jones

A movement seeks to redefine Christianity. Some think that it is a much-needed progressive reformation. Others believe that it is an attack on historic Christianity.

Alisa Childers never thought she would question her Christian faith. She was raised in a Christian home, where she had seen her mom and dad feed the hungry, clothe the homeless, and love the outcast. She had witnessed God at work and then had dedicated her own life to leading worship, as part of the popular Christian band ZOEgirl. All that was deeply challenged when she met a progressive pastor, who called himself a hopeful agnostic.

Another Gospel? describes the intellectual journey Alisa took over several years as she wrestled with a series of questions that struck at the core of the Christian faith. After everything she had ever believed about God, Jesus, and the Bible had been picked apart, she found herself at the brink of despair . . . until God rescued her, helping her to rebuild her faith, one solid brick at a time.

In a culture of endless questions, you need solid answers. If you or someone you love has encountered the ideas of progressive Christianity and aren’t sure how to respond, Alisa’s journey will show you how to determine—and rest in—what’s unmistakably true.

Leader:Brad Wasmund

Different authors are participating in the production of this series to bring together some of the best hearts and minds available to help understand what the Bible means by what it says.

Designed to be used alongside The Pilgrim’s Progress: A Readable Modern-Day Version of John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress, each chapter, sub section, and study question examines Bunyan’s allegorical narrative to tell his powerful presentation of what it means to follow the narrow way of Christian salvation.
