Soteria University is our adult education program that explores the Bible and Christianity on a deeper level.
Jesus gave his followers the mission to make disciples, and in order to make disciples, Jesus said we must teach people to observe all that he commanded. Thus, one aspect of discipleship is life-long, ongoing learning. No one will ever be able to say in this life, “I’ve learned to observe all that Jesus commanded.”
The goal of Soteria University isn’t just head knowledge; the goal of instruction is love (1 Timothy 1:5). Jesus summed up the whole Christian life like this: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength…and love your neighbor as yourself” (Mark 12:30-31 CSB).
The goal of Soteria University is to help students love the Lord with all their mind, heart, and strength.

Sunday Morning Classes
Sundays • 9:30am • Room 102
College students and young adults have multiple opportunities to connect throughout the week. During class, they spend time studying through books of Bible. We also have multiple young adult groups spread out from Ankeny to Norwalk.
“Don’t Mention Age”
Sundays • 9:30am • Room 107
The DMA or “Don’t Mention Age” class is the most long-standing class at Soteria. In more ways than one. They love singing together, studying together, and serving throughout the church.
Sundays • 9:30am • Room 106
The catch-all class began as a young families class but has grown to encompass people from all ages and stages who study God’s word and try to spur one another on in our love for the gospel.
