FAQs about AXIOM
WHAT IS AXIOM?
Elective classes for adults aimed at helping you sharpen your knowledge, skills, and character – to help you become more of the person God created you to be. As Ecc. 10:10 puts it, “If the ax is dull and its edge unsharpened, more strength is needed, but skill will bring success.”
AXIOM CLASSES OFFER TIMES…where you can learn more about what it means to “live, love, and lead like Jesus?’ Where you can get a grip on faith, belief, reason, and doubt? Where you can grow in your understanding of the Bible and how to study it…even how to teach it? Where you can ask and probe tough questions about Christianity, learn how to defend your faith, and hone your ability to share the Gospel?
AXIOM CLASSES PRESENT OPPORTUNITIES…where you can begin to remove the haze of confusion that often surrounds “theology” and be able to gain a solid and exciting grasp on “biblical doctrine?” Where you can dig into topics like the atonement, reconciliation, justification, sanctification, the Trinity, and salvation? Where you can compare one belief system with another, understand the differences, and gain a biblical understanding on topics like tolerance, diversity, and unity?
AXIOM CLASSES PROVIDE SETTINGS…where you can learn how to practically live out your faith in everyday life? Where you can learn how to cultivate meaningful relationships with others, including your own friends, parents, kids, grandkids, spouse, or neighbors? Where you can gain a biblical understanding of masculinity, femininity, and what it means to be a man or woman of God? Where you can learn about who you are in Christ and how He wants to use you? Where you can get a better grasp on what the Bible teaches about money, communication, conflict, sexuality, work, sin, decision-making, spiritual gifts, creativity, justice, marriage, singleness, leadership, stewardship, and all kinds of other topics we hunger to know more about, but have a hard time even knowing where to begin to look for trusted answers?
AXIOM IS AN ENVIRONMENT…built around the truth of Ecclesiastes 10:10 – Using a dull ax requires great strength, so sharpen the blade. AXIOM classes invite you to come and sharpen your ax (spiritually, mentally, relationally, biblically,… all of the above).
WHO CAN ATTEND AXIOM CLASSES?
Anyone from ages 15 to 115! Whether you are a follower of Jesus or not… whether you attend First B or not… whether you are looking for answers, healing, an opportunity to learn, a place to serve, or all of the above…you’re never too young or too old to learn and grow.
