The church has been instructed in Matthew 28:19-20 to go 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 that Christ has commanded. This is the mission of every local church. At Calvary Baptist Church, our mission is no different. And this same mission is at the very heart of our Student Ministry. We seek to go and make disciples of the Students in the Bristol, TN and Bristol, VA area. We aim to not only win souls to Christ, but we aim to teach them to observe all that Christ commanded. Week in and week out our students will hear the message of the gospel as we open up God’s word. Most of our time together will be spent going through books of the Bible, but we will also get into theological and practical gospel living topics as well.
It is also part of our ministry to not only reach out to the Students, but the entire family. We are there to reach the students and be an aide to the family as we teach these students to love the LORD their God with all of their heart, soul, and mind.
In Matthew 19:14, Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” We are seeking to bring these students to Jesus, so that the Kingdom can be theirs.
For our students we have Sunday School at 9:30am on Sundays, Wednesday night Bible Study at 6:30pm, and then we also have D Groups that meet. D Groups are discipleship groups that meet and pray for one another, have a short Bible Study, and a time to build community for our students.
