You will learn how the Old Testament feasts and sacrifices are relevant to a New Testament church.Take home bible studies are proided each week to help the student dig deeper into God's Word throughout the week.

Perhaps you have heard terms such as the Church Age or the Age of Grace. Maybe you have heard a preacher explain that we are no longer under the law. What was he talking about? He was referencing the biblical principle of dispensational theology. While God is the same throughout the ages and Jesus is the only source of salvation from Genesis to Revelation, we do discover different administrations of God’s plan for mankind over time. Just as parents deal differently with their child at the age of six than they do when he is sixteen, so God has dealt with mankind differently as we have progressed through the ages. These different ages are known as dispensations. This course will open the eyes of the student to God’s divine plan as it has been revealed to us throughout the ages. Upon completing this class the student will have a broader and more balanced understanding of the Scriptures. Click here to learn more.

What makes you, you? Have you ever asked “Who am I and why am I here?” Consciously or not, most of us have. Purpose is a vital part of existence.

The successful completion of this class will result in the student understanding God’s purpose in his or her life. When we know and seek to fulfill His will we will know what it is to be complete in Him. Click here to learn more.
Between a Rock and a Hard Place
Instructor: Shirley Methner
Every seasoned believer knows that Jesus is our Rock. He is indeed the Rock of Ages. He is the Solid Rock. Jesus is our firm foundation. Yet believers often find themselves in difficult or hard situations. Sometimes we are tempted to doubt God’s plan and do things our own way. In this class designed especially for ladies, students will explore great people of faith who found themselves between a rock and a hard place. How did they handle it? What did they do? Were they ultimately successful? In each circumstance the class will uncover biblical principles that can give them guidance and assurance when they find themselves between a rock and a hard place.

The Choice is Yours
Instructor: Nanette Click
Based on Terrie Chappell's book by the same name, ladies will learn that we live in a culture that caters to our choices. We like our options, and we enjoy the opportunity to choose our preferences. Popular psychology and human reasoning tell us to make choices based on what feels good. They encourage us, “just follow your heart.” God has given us a much better guide, however, in His Word. Unlike our fickle and untrustworthy opinions, God’s Word never changes. Its dependability has been proven through the centuries. Topics covered will include: Authenticity, Faith, Identity in Christ, Joy, Strength in Trials and Victorious, Spirit-filled Living. This class, designed especially for ladies, will encourage the student to pursue the best choices in life.
The ABC’s of FBT
Instructor: Pastor Gary Click
Status: Coming Soon
All churches are not the same. Every church and every denomination and even the so called “non-denominational” churches have core values, principles and beliefs that distinguish them. This class will define the core values and beliefs of the Fremont Baptist Temple while relying upon the Scriptures to explain why. Though it is not possible to cover everything we believe during a thirteen week class, the student will become familiar with what sets FBT apart and is essential to our foundation. New believers and prospective members will be introduced to the distinguishing characteristics of FBT, while long time members might be refreshed in those same principles. This class will be eye opening for those who may be accustomed to the ritualism of a more formal type of church and indispensable for those with no church background at all.
