In my more than 40 years of being a Christian, I have observed that Christian education is not presented in a line upon line, precept upon precept method. Secular curriculum give students the opportunity to add to the knowledge base that they have as they progress through their educational program. However, Christian educational programs, especially in the early years of a Christian’s walk does not have a progressive learning format. Therefore Christians may attend church for many years and still lack basic Christian principles that would help them live a victorious righteous life.
Christians are called to be disciples not church goers. In Matthew 28:18, Jesus came and spoke to the disciples, saying, all authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the father and of the son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things I have commanded you. And remember I am with you always, even to the end of the age.
The word disciple can reference to the twelve who followed Jesus and learned from Him personally or it can mean a follower or student of a teacher. I believe when he gave the commission to the disciples to go and make disciples, he was saying go, find students and teach them what they have learned.
This Christian education program is geared toward new believers in Christ. It will cover subjects that will hopefully be foundational and will empower new belivers to become strong in their faith.
