The CONGREGATION represents the second stage of discipleship. These are people who have joined the church and joined our local fellowship. The tool we will use for this stage is our baseball diamond. The baseball diamond is made of five separate classes teaching the basics of Christianity. The first class is called 101. This class will be attended by people who desire membership in the church but have not yet joined. This class teaches:
        1- salvation
        2- baptism
        3- communion
        4- about Brentwood
        5- membership
