It is our joy to equip the church for the work of ministry.
We at Paramount are committed to shepherding the flock of God and equipping the saints for the work of ministry to fulfill the Great Commission (Eph. 4:12, Matt. 28:18-20). Sunday morning Adult Bible Fellowship (ABF) and Youth Bible Fellowship (YBF) are the fruit of a Gospel-Centered approach to discipleship for life and doctrine (1 Tim. 4:17). Our Sunday morning ABF/YBF are carefully connected to other ministry areas, benefiting the entire church.
ABF Teaching Goal:
To provide a Gospel-Centered Christian education to equip the saints for the work of ministry over the course of four-years, based around the values of Paramount.
YBF Teaching Goal:
ABF and YBF mirror one another in content, but are different in the depth of teaching for students. Also YBF follows the same Gospel-Centered Christian education approach to equip the students for the work of ministry over the course of four-years, based around the values of Paramount.
ABF/YBF covers four-years, leading to a well-developed Christian worldview as we explore God’s unfolding plan as revealed in Scripture. We believe this comprehensive structure will contribute to the health of the church and a clearer understanding of the faith. As we wed both life and doctrine together, we are committed to transformational teaching with practical application rooted in the Scripture. We do not want the teaching to remain static, but to overflow into Community Groups, marriage, singleness, work and all of life.
It is our hope that through the ABF/YBF teaching, the church will obtain a comprehensive Christian education and collectively walk out our faith. For students and adults, the Gospel-Centered teaching goal for Sunday morning discipleship is identical. This unifying theme naturally enables parents to interact with their children about the lesson. In addition, at the end of each study we will enjoy a combined ABF/YBF fellowship to unify the church and usher in the new study.
