Axiom welcomes all who are currently in middle school or high school.
Fridays (starting Aug 25, 2017) | 7-9 PM | Hankow MC
What are these Friday nights about? Axiom Friday nights are really the heart of our ministry, where the students come for a time of worship, learning of God’s word, and fellowship in small groups.
What will the students be learning in this upcoming fall term? We have often heard that "to know God is to love Him." Yet how can we know him more? There is no better way to learn about God than through the very words of Christ himself. This fall term, we'll be journeying through the seven "I AM's" statements in the gospel of John, in hope that in the process of knowing who Jesus really is, we'd also learn more about who we are and find our deepest longings and needs to be met in him.
What else will the students be doing? Other than Bible studies, we'll also have a "What's the Deal?" night every month to address some of the real tough issues students face today. Some nights we also have fun social events!
You mentioned about small groups, what are they? Small groups are written in Axiom’s ‘DNA’. Students are placed in adult-led and single-gender groups, where they can share life together, get discipled and spurred on to have a deeper knowledge of God and relationship with our Lord.

What is Axiom Academy? Axiom Academy is the Sunday school program for those in middle and high school. The sermons are geared towards engaging the students, and encourage them to participate in the topic of discussion.
What will the students be learning in this upcoming school year? This year we will be using a curriculum called "Teach Me Your Way" by children desiring God. It is a study on surrendering to Jesus Christ in salvation and submitting to His will and way.
Following is a brief summary: "Although created to worship God, man is prone by nature to worship the creation rather than the Creator. We are inclined to pursue the temporal benefits of this physical world over the eternal treasure of the spiritual world. Only God can open blind eyes to the surpassing worth of knowing Christ. Surrendering to Christ in salvation involves the mind, heart, and will of the person, and true saving faith results in submission to the will and ways of Jesus. The evidence of a surrendered heart is obedience, and the mark of the obedient heart is reflected in the true righteousness of the person who has “put off the old self” and has “put on the new self.” Though perfect righteousness has been legally imputed to the believer through the cross, the life of righteous living, though imperfect till heaven, can be reflected in the believer here. The righteous heart attitude and actions taught in the Sermon on the Mount are a picture of the “already but not yet” perfected believer. Because sin is subtle and man’s nature is sinful, Christians must encourage each other daily to submit to God and to resist sin until Jesus returns and we reflect the perfection of the character of Christ."
