Adult Bible Study

Adult Bible Study

It's easy to get lost on Sunday morning, coming and going without ever getting an opportunity to connect, make new friends, and build strong relationships with people and with God. At First Baptist of Tempe, there are some wonderful Adult Bible classes which meet this need.

There are Adult Bible Class during every Worship Service hour on Sunday mornings which you can attend before or after the service you attend.
This is the place to:

  1. Learn and grow in God's Word at a deeper level
    • It does not matter if your knowledge of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit is minimal
    • It does not matter if you are not a Bible scholar, not familiar with the Books of the Bible, nor how to read the Bible
    • It does not matter if you do not understand what sin is or have not accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior for the forgiveness of your sins.
  2. Class attendees are at all levels in their maturity and growth in their walk with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
  3. Teachers lead by loving God and loving people no matter where they are in life.  They know and share the good news that Jesus died for all of us so our sins are forgiven and that we have eternal life by accepting Him as our Savior.  They live by faith through the Holy Spirit who speaks to our hearts and guides us through our lives.
  4. Classes are not judgmental or critical. In fact, just the opposite will happen as people welcome you with joy, respect and love.
  5. Fellowshipping with others will help develop friendships both inside and outside the church.
  6. You will be a part of a group of people who will be there to help in crisis situations.  During these times they will pray with you, affirm you, listen to you, share wisdom, rejoice with and love you.

Feel free to visit all the classes to find the right one for you.
