Jesus said, “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19). We desire to see people become followers of Jesus, help them grow in their faith, equip them for participation in ministry, and send them out as missionaries locally and globally.
Ongoing discipleship takes place through the Bible Fellowship Small Groups that meet year-round. We also offer regular discipleship opportunities that focus on a range of particular topics including focused spiritual issues, family, finances, studies for men and women, Bible book studies, and more.
True Community by Jerry Bridges
Fellowship among believers is more than just talking over coffee after church service. Biblical fellowship in New Testament times―or koinonia―had rich and varied meanings, including covenant relationship, partnership in the gospel, communion with God and others, and the sharing of earthly possessions. In True Community, best-selling author Jerry Bridges guides you through koinonia and its implications for today’s church. With discussion questions at the end of each chapter, this book will help you dig deeper into what Christian community in the twenty-first century should look like. You will come away with a new appreciation for fellowship, the church, and what God intended the body of Christ to be.

Be Amazed by Warren Wiersbe
The books of Hosea, Joel, Jonah, Nahum, Habakkuk, and Malachi are viewed by Biblical scholars as the Minor Prophets. Yet the insights and messages contained within these books are anything but minor. These prophets offer a unique, firsthand view of an all-powerful God who longs to intimately connect with His people. This study examines their personal stories to discover how He interacts with our world in truly amazing ways.
