Purpose: To train Church Members for Church Membership
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. – II Timothy 2:15 (KJV)
Our Baptist Training Union will train members to minister by instructing them in three specific areas: polity (church government), doctrine (church belief), and leadership.
Benefits: The Lord's command to make disciples provides "marching orders"
If taken seriously and consistently supported, the BTU benefits the local church in the following ways:
·Produces effective and informed leaders for ministries of the church
·Produces an informed membership that knows and sustains the Biblical doctrines that keeps
the Church close to the purposes for which Christ created us
·Strengthens the churches evangelism mission by producing equipped witnesses
BTU affords EVERY member of the church the opportunity to enhance and develop spiritual gifts designed to edify the Body of Christ.
