“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
We believe the purpose of discipleship is to introduce a person to the Lord Jesus Christ and to lead them in the life-long process of being conformed to Jesus’ “law of love.” This is done in the context of a community of fellow believers.

Sunday Morning Discipleship
Prior to our worship service, we hold discipleship classes for all age groups. The curriculum of each class varies year to year; however, the core focus is always on helping individuals grow in their walk with Jesus and equipping them to live out His call to “go” - here, there and everywhere!
“Encounter” groups, are for purpose of building up, encouraging, equipping and praying for one another within a small group setting. E-Groups meet in the evening of the 1st and 3rd Sundays in the Hamilton area, and the 2nd and 4th Sundays of every month in Trenton.
An apologetics class/forum to discuss supporting evidence - Biblical, historical, and scientific - that can be used to affirm and/or defend our faith in Christ to those who are seeking truth and have yet to believe - all in a loving and respectful way, as we are instructed to do in 1 Peter 3:15. Meets every other Monday evening at ERC.
