C.O.R.E Academy

Strengthening our C.O.R.E. together

Who We Are

The Adult Christian Education Ministry coordinates and administers biblical teachings to facilitate spiritual growth and disciple believers into Christ-like maturity. We accomplish these goals through our C.O.R.E. Academy. The C.O.R.E. Academy exists to biblically inform and spiritually transform students (2 Timothy 2:2) as they pursue a relationship with Christ. We believe that Christian Education is a lifelong journey (John 8:31) and every believer should have a desire to grow spiritually and naturally through an ever-growing relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

Our Purpose

The C.O.R.E. was established to teach members how to grow in CHRIST-LIKE maturity; to connect the community to the Body through OUTREACH; to cultivate covenant RELATIONSHIPS; and to equip members to serve with EXCELLENCE, so that nothing we propose to do will be impossible for us to accomplish.

Health & Wellness Ministry

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 states, “Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God?  You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price.  So you must honor God with your body.”  

We want to impact the overall divine health of those in the body of Christ.  This course will be facilitator-lead with handouts.

Victory in Spiritual Warfare

“Whether you recognize it or not, there is currently a war going on all around you…..we will learn about all God has already secured for the believer in Christ.  We will discover together what each piece of armor is and how to put it on.  We will see that this armor is to be employed every day in real life situation…we will learn to live in the victory God has won for us in Christ.”  This course will be a facilitator lead video-based discussion.

Whose TEAM are You On?

Matthew 12:30 (NKJV) states, “He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad.”  God only recognizes two teams; you are either on Team “FOR” or Team “AGAINST.” Another way to express this idea is Team “GATHERER” or Team “SCATTERER.”

This course will be a facilitator-led book-based discussion.
