Real-Life Courses Fall 2023

Discipleship – Pastor Al Velez

Our EMIC mission statement begins with “Take a group of people and disciple them intensely in the Word of God…”. In Matthew 28:19, just before ascending into heaven, Jesus commanded us to go make disciples. Discipleship is not an option for the believer. How do we disciple others? Where do we start? How far do we go? In this class we will learn the foundational principles of discipleship and how to use our faith to disciple others by closely studying the methods of Jesus and Paul and build a solid foundation for discipling others.

Authority of the Believer– Pastor John Jester

You were designed to be a world overcomer.  The only question is are you overcoming?  Believers have been given the authority to use The Word of God, The Blood of Jesus, and The Name of Jesus to defeat every attack of the enemy and all the pressures of the world.  In this Real-Life course, we will examine what that means and how to do it.  As The Lord told Pastor Terri, “There is no power so great that the authority of the believer is not greater still. All the demons in hell combined together times ten cannot overcome the authority of the believer!”

How to be led by the Holy Spirit – Pastor Cathy Grigg and Shirree Robinson

It has never been more important to be able to discern the leading of the Spirit of God than it is today. With many voices competing for our attention, it is imperative that we tune in to the leading of God’s Spirit. In this class we will dive into topics such as: how to focus on the Spirit’s leading in every area of our life; how to train your spirit to be in tune with God; how much weight should be given to personal prophecies; and much more. If you have ever asked yourself, ‘Was that me or was it God?’ this is the class for you!  

Integrity of the Word of God – Pastor Bobby Armstrong

Our number one core value is that we put the Word of God first place and make it final authority in our lives.  The Word of God is the will of God, and faith begins where the will of God is known.  In this course, we will explore God’s word and discover how it functions in the life of a believer.  We will also discuss the fundamentals of bible study and application to gain higher insights into what it means to be a student of The Holy Bible.  If you want to become better acquainted with God’s written word, this is the class for you. 

Foundations of Faith – Pastor Stephen Shelton

God created the universe through faith, and it was Faith that enabled Jesus to perform powerful miracles during His ministry on the earth. Faith is also the same force that can launch you into the supernatural life that God has designed for you to live! This course will empower you to tap into the power source of faith and release God’s power to change your world by teaching the foundations of what we believe as the children of Almighty God.

Realities of Redemption– Pastor Brian Sanders

We should all be living in the Reality that we ARE REDEEMED.  We have been bought back with what Jesus did for us by the shedding of his blood.  When Jesus was raised from the dead, the power of Satan was broken and all of mankind can now be free from his dominion.  In this Real-Life class, you will get a better understanding of the legal and vital aspects of redemption while also learning that your redemption in Christ provides everything you need including healing, prosperity, wisdom, and peace of mind.
