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.
