VBC Christian Education

"Equipping The Saints"


Mission Statement

At VBC, it is our desire to enable our members to do two things: Understand their salvation and grow in their faith.  We want you to understand what salvation is and what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Secondly, because you can’t grow in your faith without having a personal relationship with Jesus, our mission is to equip you and help you grow in your faith. We desire that you be able to read your Bible, understand what it says to you, develop a personal prayer life, learn what the attributes of God are, understand creation, and equip you to serve God in our Church, in our Community, in our Country and in our World.

Classes at VBC

Regardless of where you are in your spiritual journey, we want to equip you with biblical education.  Life Courses equip you for discipleship in all areas of life by teaching biblical doctrine and principles for Christian Living.  Under each class you will find whether the Class is available In-Person, Zoom or Recorded and stored in the Resource Library.  We are working very hard to gain approvals for any content that we broadcast via Zoom.  This will give us the proper copyrights that we need.

Life Courses typically run 4-10 weeks based on the curriculum. We offer courses in the Spring, Summer, and Fall.  Check out our course offerings below.

What to expect

  • Trained Leadership. Life Courses are led by trusted members of VBC who are well-studied in the course subject matter.
  • Biblical Instruction. As God’s inspired Word, the Bible is useful for teaching (2 Tim. 3:16). We believe a biblical worldview is essential for Christian living.
  • Open Discussion. Our course leaders will invite you to learn through discussion with other members. Come prepared to ask your questions and learn from one another.
  • Practical Application. Each week, you will be equipped with principles to apply to your life and become a stronger disciple in the course’s specific area of focus.

Attention:  We are looking for Men and Women who would like to become Zoom Facilitators

We are expanding the ability for our Church Members to watch live the various Bible Studies that we offer on Sunday morning and throughout the week.  This will enable us to reach people who cannot attend in person for various reasons: Health, Traveling or Working Remote.  You can contact Steven Wilkinson if you are interested.  He will be creating a class and training to enable you to use Zoom and support one of the many Bible Study Classes we offer.  Without you we will not be able to offer these classes online.  Look for a time and date coming soon for this enablement.

CME Discipleship Bible Study

  • We will examine how Jesus developed His model for making disciples, and how Paul uses a similar methodology. This same multiplication model that if followed will help lead those who do not know Jesus Christ to a personal relationship with Him. Pause for a moment and consider that Jesus’ careful selection of these 11 committed followers, along with Paul and those he mentored, all inspired by the Holy Spirit is why we have followers of Jesus Christ all over the world today. What a perfect plan drawn up by God Himself.

Men's BSF Billboard

Join us in the Study of the People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided.  We discover that the God of the Old Testament still speaks to His people today. The Old Testament prophets provide a close look at God’s character. We learn to hold fast to God’s character, uncovering new facets of who He was, is and always will be. We learn from the Kings and Prophets God’s unshakable character and humanity’s struggle with sin. We learn that the Old Testament Books are deeply integrated into the fabric of the New Testament. The Gospel writers relied heavily on Old Testament prophecies to recognize Jesus Christ as the One True Messiah. Jesus quoted the Old Testament often, if we skip reading the Old Testament, we miss the depth of sin that Jesus Christ uncovered and the wrath it deserved. When we understand fully why Jesus Christ desires mercy, not sacrifice, and calls not the righteous, but sinners, we are left with a tremendous sense of awe and gratitude.

Promise's of God Billboard

Why did Jesus teach only in Parables at times? Even the disciples didn't always understand.  We'll discuss two of Jesus' parables each week in September.  Prepare to grow as we study!

The God Who Speaks Billboard

There is a war raging around us – in society, in our churches, and in our homes. It is not a battle over marriage, race, or the sexual revolution. Rather, it is a battle for the truth.  Is God real? Does He speak, and if so, how would we know?  The God Who Speaks is an eight-week video study that traces the evidence of the biblical scholars.  This video series answers common objections about the Bible’s reliability and equips believers to confidently base their lives on the power of God’s Word.  Each session runs about 35 minutes followed with discussion questions.

The Teachings of Paul Billboard

The goal will be to acquire a greater degree of Bible knowledge with a focus on the teachings of Paul, the apostle of the Gentiles. The first few sessions will be an overview of the Biblical Timeline; how God delt with the human race at different points in time.  The we pal to study the first letters Paul wrote, 1st and 2nd Thessalonians and how their content relates to the times in which we are living. It will be an interactive format with ample room for questions and discussion. Proverbs says, “Iron sharpens Iron, so one person sharpens another”. Look forward to increasing your knowledge of God’s Word as we study together.
