Beyond Education to Discipleship

My life changed when I began believing that I was uniquely created.  I got excited about waking up!  This was a feeling I hadn’t experienced in awhile.  It’s a rush knowing that God has work for me to do, and He doesn’t want anyone else to do it for me.  Do you believe this? Do you believe there is a specific, God-given mission you are to accomplish here on earth?  Whether you believe it or not, it’s true.

God says to Jeremiah, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5 God knew Jeremiah before He formed Him!  He had work for him to do before he even came out of his mother’s womb!

God says of believers, “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”  Ephesians 2:10. He prepared good works for me in advance.  Much like Jeremiah, you and I have been entrusted with a task!  This is why we exist.

My heart is to see Eternity Bible College train young people for their mission. Too many people waste precious years of their lives chasing after the temporary and unfulfilling. The college years are vital. Proper training can save us from years of boredom.
Our mission goes beyond education to discipleship. Our desire is that students will not only learn from teachers, but know them.  We don’t expect students to observe a healthy church, but to be a critical part of it.  We plan to place students in secular settings where their faith is going to be challenged, and walk with them through the battles.  At the core of all we do is discipleship. Eternity Bible College isn’t the best college for everyone. Pray and explore. If God leads you here, let’s make every day count.

I’m learning to love people better, not only through the things I’m learning in my classes, but through the amazing community of students and teachers who model it for me.
