Get Involved in our Membership Growth Program

Aims:
To introduce the newly born Christian and the prospective member of CBC to the basic truth and principles of salvation, discipleship and to ensure that the prospective member fully understands the Vision and Mission of the Church.

Two groups (classes) are recommended:

Group A – Focus on newly converted Christians. The main thrust of the teachings is based on issues like assurance of salvation, new creation, realities, and holiness.
Group B – Focus graduates from Group A and individuals who want to become members of the church.

The idea is to concentrate on issues like Discipleship, Water Baptism, Holy Spirit Baptism, the Vision and Mission of the Church, the operational Departments and committees and the benefits and responsibilities of members.

Recommended Duration: 8 –12 weeks.
