Mission of Congress of Christian Education
Our mission is rooted in the book of Proverbs. In Proverbs, God gives us a mandate to seek wisdom and apply understanding of the word of God. As the educational arm of the National Capital Baptist Convention, our purpose is to comprehensively equip, teach, train, and be resourceful to our churches and their membership in the knowledge of God so that they may apply wisdom to their behavior, life, profession, and daily living.
Mission of the 2018 Annual Congress of Christian Education
We declare and reaffirm that God’s mission for our Congress involves ministering to the spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional, educational, and environmental needs of people we serve. To prevent this modern movement of “Making America Great Again” from taking African Americans back to the Jim Crow era, where white supremacy ruled supremacy, we envision another future, “Bringing America Back to Christ,” (2 Chronicles 7:14) by reclaiming and reaffirming our biblical and historical mission of the Black Church “to preach the gospel to the poor; to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised. “
Goals of 2018 Congress of Christian Education
We have 12 Congress Schools and a Certification program. The Directors of our Congress School is tasked to develop two instructional courses, one for the monthly session and one for the Annual session. Additionally, we will endeavor to accomplish the following goals in 2018.
