This is where the church gathers to learn from God’s Word through weekly studies and edifying programming, which aside from being contextualized will also provide a basis for the spiritual growth of our community. This was developed for enabling people to handle God’s Word correctly (II Timothy 2:15), so that they may use their gifts and skills for the common good (I Corinthians 12:7), including the Church and society in guiding them towards the love of God. (Romans 15:1-2). Keeping as a premise the Universal Priesthood (I Peter 2:9) and the Calling to Lead the world (Matthew 5:13-14).

HOW TO TALK ABOUT JESUS
We believe that each christian is called to spread God’s KIngdom, yet we also know that each one has a specific calling and their own way of fulfilling God’s commands. This course therefore, aims to help you understand the fundamentals of this commission and to help/challenge you to find your own way of evangelizing. It is divided in two parts. The first one offers, based on the Holy Bible, an alignment and critical doctrinal basis for the spread of the Gospel in our post modern age. In the second part we deal with a very practical bias and highlight different ways of evangelizing, christian counselling and discipleship so that the participants might proactively fulfill the “Go into all the world…” (Matthew 28:19-20). Upon concluding the course there is a “visitation” or a social action evangelistic outreach in a pre-arranged place (a shelter, a hospital, etc.) in the greater João Pessoa área – Paraíba.
