Discipleship at PHBC

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good worksnot neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near (Hebrews 10:24-25, emphasis added).

At PHBC, our greatest desire is to see the unbeliever come to saving faith in Jesus Christ, accepting His death on the cross as the ultimate payment for their sins. After their salvation, we strive to see the believer continually grow in their faith, learning more about who God is and about His love letter to us, the Bible. We are called in Hebrews chapter 10 to, “stir up one another to love and good works.” This is done when we fellowship together, meeting together to study God’s Word. Sharpening each other as “iron sharpens iron” (Proverbs 27:17) and encouraging each other.

There are a number of exciting ways that we can help you grow in your faith and develop stronger relationships within our church.  “Life Courses,” “Deep Dives,” and “Growth Groups” are all great places to start.

Life Courses:

Life Courses give you an opportunity to learn in an interactive, classroom type setting. Some of the classes are ongoing courses, which have no definitive end date, while others follow the 8-week schedule of our Deep Dive classes.
 
Some of our Life Courses are targeted toward a specific demographic within our church, such as age group or shared life experiences, while other courses are focused on a specific biblical topic.

Deep Dive Courses:

These are typically more of a lecture style format and focus on more complex topics, including doctrinal and theological issues or inductive teaching through a book of the Bible or specific passage. 
 
These 8-week classes are for the believer who wants to deepen their understanding of God’s Word. We plan to have 4 quarters of Deep Dives each year.

Growth Groups:

The purpose of our “Growth Group” ministry is to bring together groups of believers that can live life together. Most of our groups are open to anyone who are interested in joining, with a few groups focused on a specific demographic (i.e. singles, young marrieds, seniors, etc.). 
 
Our “On-Campus” groups meet at PHBC, while “Off-Campus” groups meet in member’s homes, places of business, or in a public venue like a restaurant or coffee shop.
 

There is a group waiting to welcome you!
