Equipping classes are a place to be trained, equipped, and developed. Christians need continual training, learning, and equipping as we seek to be light and salt in the world. We want to mature in our faith. For those who are seeking Jesus and don’t know much about Jesus and Christianity, these classes will be a great place to learn and ask questions. Hopefully no matter where we are spiritually, we can be challenged, encouraged, and grow closer to Jesus and have greater faith in Him as our Lord and Savior.
So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service,
so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith
and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature,attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.
Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves,
and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.
Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head,
that is, Christ From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament,
grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work. (Ephesians 4:11-16, NIV)
