Adult Ministry

The aim of Adult Ministries of First Baptist Church is to provide an environment that encourages and equips adults of all ages to fully live out their faith in daily life. The Adult Faith Journey  is a life-long process of seeking and maintaining a relationship with God by becoming more and more like Christ in beliefs (orthodoxy) and behaviors (orthopraxy).  This life-long journey of spiritual formation is expressed through Knowing Christ, Growing in Christ, and Showing Christ to Others.
For a current listing of adult Bible study classes which meet 10:15 – 11:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings, click here: Sunday Morning Bible Study.  For more information about classes and to be escorted to the class of your choosing, stop by the Sunday School Information Desk in Grand Central (by elevator and coffee station) between 10:15 – 11:00 a.m.
