CLASS: Choosing Christ
Are you ready to learn more about making Jesus your Lord and Savior? MC3 offers “Choosing Christ,” a discussion-based, six-to-eight-week class for those who are contemplating giving their life to Christ and those who want to learn how to lead others to Jesus.
Choosing Christ helps us experience why and how we should trust Christ with our lives. Church attendance, keeping the Commandments, taking communion or good living—none of this will lead us to Heaven. Salvation comes only through our trust in a person—Jesus Christ.
Choosing Christ will give you the opportunity to explore what Scripture says about living and leading people into a growing relationship with Christ. As the gospel of John says about the Bible: “But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name” (20:31).
