Word Study is the primary discipleship ministry of the ministry of the local church for the systematic teaching of the Bible to all ages. Its main purpose is to make disciples of people through the regular, systematic teaching of God’s word. Those who have been disciplined should then disciple others.
The three-fold mission of Sunday school is Reaching (Evangelism), Teaching (Growth) and Equipping (Training) people for ministry.
Other purpose of Sunday school are:
- To lead into a personal experience of salvation, acknowledging Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord.
- To provide opportunities for participation in class study and Christian ministry.
- To provide an opportunity for Christian fellowship
- To produce a non-threatening setting for the unsaved which is both conductive to the teaching of God’s word and the acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.
- Promoting loyalty to the church.
- Teaching Christian stewardship and citizenship.
- Teaching a Christian word view that encourages believers to become active in reaching others outside the wall of the church.
