Vacation Bible School for Adults

Tonight I begin teaching a series of lessons at a sister churches’ (Vaughn Chapel Baptist Church) Vacation Bible School. I taught Timothy George’s doctrinal series Amazing Grace: God’s Initiative/Our Response there last year. The pastor specifically asked me to teach on what Muslims, Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses and Word of Faith Pentecostals believe. I told him that this was not an area of expertise for me, but he insisted. Here is the series which I designed. In the first session I thought it would be important to define what orthodox Christians believe in four essential areas which are denied or distorted in some way by each of the four sects we will examine during the rest of the week. Below is the schedule and outline of how I am going to teach. I put together my own notes for “What Do Christians Believe . . .”, but I will be relying on the North American Mission Board’s materials for the other sessions. I will add links to the resources I’m using for each session tomorrow.
