We want to partner with you as you seek to make these habits a priority and incorporate them into your everyday life through the Next Step series of classes. This series encompasses our disciple-making strategy for adults at New Vision, and will equip you with the accountability, knowledge and skills necessary to grow in your relationship with Christ.
New Life Class This is a one-session, 45-minute class that answers questions about what it means to be a Christian, Baptism, helps people understand the meaning and mode of baptism, and provides an overview of our discipleship process.
Lessons on Assurance This is a six-week class for new believers, or anyone who desires to learn foundational, Biblical truths. We’ll use NavPress’ interactive study guide to explore 5 bedrock promises God has given to every believer that, if fully believed and embraced, will lead to a robust and growing faith.
Adult Groups Orientation This one-session class will help you understand the role of biblical community in the life of the believer and help you connect in a group for the purpose of accountability as well as personal and spiritual growth.
S.H.A.P.E. Class This 2-session class is designed to help you discover and understand how God has uniquely wired you to serve according to your Spiritual giftedness, Heart or passion, Abilities and Availability, Personality and life Experiences.
One Verse Evangelism This one-session class explains how to diagram Romans 6:23 in a way that will equip you to confidently and boldly share the gospel with anyone, anywhere, at any time, “showing” people how to surrender their life to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
Our Next Steps classes are offered on different days and at various times throughout the year. Check our Class Schedule for dates and locations.
Next Step classes are offered several times a year, but if you find yourself between courses while waiting for the next offering to begin, we recommend you take advantage of a powerful resource entitled The Call to Follow Christ: Six Personal Disciplines for New and Growing Believers, which is designed to help you grow in your relationship with Christ.
The Call to Follow Christ is a self-paced, interactive study guide that will help you get started in your walk with the Lord if you have trusted Christ for the first time. It is also a great resource if you are already a believer and just want to further develop your daily commitment to Him. Through this guide you will learn to develop a consistent quiet time with the Lord as you study brief daily lessons centered on foundational Christian truths and disciplines. This study may be done on your own, although we encourage you to go through it one-on-one with a mentor or with a group of other believers. This class is offered to everyone who completes the New Life Class and is baptized by immersion at New Vision.
Call or email Mark Lewis (615-895-7167) for more information about this resource, which is available for purchase in the church office .
