Learning

Learning is at the core of our ministry at GBUMC, as we aim to make disciples of Jesus Christ!  Through Sunday School, weekday classes, evening classes, and Wednesday Night Ignite!, we offer bible study activities and learning opportunities for everyone!

 
Spiritual Growth
Learning Opportunities are offered through bible studies and activities that are grounded in our foundational beliefs as Christians. 
 
 
We believe that the Bible
is God’s word and through it, God reveals Himself to us, showing his character and His will.  Though written by man, the Bible is inspired by God and is without error. 
 
The Bible is our source of truth and guides us in our beliefs and lifestyle.  It leads us to love God and others. (Psalm 12;6; 105; 119; 160; Proverbs 30:52, Matthew 22:37-40, Timothy 1:13, 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20-21)
 
We believe in the Holy Trinity, that God exists in three persons:  the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  These three are equal in power and are one God. (Genesis 1:1, 26-27, 3:22, Psalm 90:2, Matthew 28:19, 1 Peter 1:2)
 

We believe that salvation is a gift from God.  We have not earned salvation, nor can we prove ourselves to be ‘good enough’ through our actions to receive God’s approval.  We are saved by grace through faith, and Jesus has paid the penalty of sin through his sacrifice on the cross. (John 14:6, 1:12, Romans 5:1, 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-9, Titus 3:5, Galatians 3:26)

 

We believe that God is the sovereign creator. (Genesis 1:1, 26-27, 3:22, Matthew 28:19, 1 Peter 1:2, 2 Corinthians 13:14). 
 
 
 
 

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  Jesus lived a sinless life in human form and offered himself as a sacrifice for humanity.  He died on the cross and arose from the dead on the third day, revealing His power over sin and death.  He then ascended to heaven where he resides with God, the Father until His return. (Isaiah 9:6, Matthew 1:22-23, John 1:1-5, 14:1-3, 10-30)
