Lebanon 1o1
Learn the details of what it means to be a member of Lebanon Baptist Church. Over the course of six weeks, we will explore the mission, message, and ministry of this church. This class is required for all potential members.

Church Basics
Unfortunately, ecclesiology has been assumed rather than explicitly taught. As a result, faulty understanding, opinions, and expectations have been formed about church. Learn to think biblically about the church and approach it in a way that expresses a true understanding of Jesus’ intentions for each of His followers. Download the notes.

For certain, God does guide His people, but the question is, “how?” Learn to discern unbiblical ideas of what it means to follow God, and anchor your decisions in the objective truth of God’s Word.
