Classes designed to help you get connected at The Austin Stone. Most of these classes include a small group component with group meetings outside of class to facilitate community and mission, with many groups continuing after the class semester.
Classes that walk through core Christian beliefs with an emphasis on how theology should inform our choices and pursuits in everyday life.
Is the Old Testament relevant for us today? How important is it for Christians to study the OT? Roughly 76% of the Bible is the OT and there are over 2,700 Old Testament references in the New Testament. God did not make a mistake in structuring it this way. What we see is that the OT is what we critically need in order to properly understand the nature of God, the nature of Man, and why we so desperately needed Jesus. This class is ‘The Beginning’ of the journey through the OT as we cover at a survey level the first five books of the Bible.
Who do you say I am?” (Mt 16:15) The question Jesus asked his disciples is just as pertinent today as it was more than 2,000 years ago; for eternal life rests in the answer. In this four week class, we will answer questions like Who is Jesus? If Jesus is God, and God knows everything, then why did he say that only the Father knows when the Son will return? Could Jesus have sinned? How can Jesus, who is God, die on a cross? This class could be described as “theological heavy-lifting” and not for the faint of heart. Still, despite the plunge into cerebral depths, we will not ignore how these truths shape our hearts and serve our hands.
Jesus calls the Church to "Go and make disciples of all nations." So how do we, as His Church, do that? Is everyone really supposed to go overseas, and are there really people who have never heard about Jesus? Can God use my business skill or degree for His global purpose? What does it look like for me to make disciples while I'm right here in Austin? These are just some of the questions we will cover during For the Nations, so come explore God's heart for the world and how He wants us to join Him.
Are you engaged or have been married for less than 2 years? Looking to connect with other couples that are transitioning from single life to married life? Wondering how you can truly have a successful marriage? This class is for you! Come join up with other couples to explore what the Bible says are the keys to a successful marriage.
