Digital discipleship

First Baptist offers a multitude of discipleship opportunities for its members and guests, but we realize that some people need or want more!  We're happy that you're interested in researching additional spiritual growth options.  Below are several digital discipleship resources that we recommend.  Regardless of your life stage or spiritual level, we pray you'll find something among these resources that the Lord will use to draw you closer to Him.  Click the buttons below to get started.

Rightnow media

We are excited to share that as of February 2021, First Baptist gained unlimited access to RightNow Media—the world’s largest streaming library of video Bible study resources (it’s been called the “Netflix of video Bible studies”).  This extensive library has more than 20,000 videos from trusted leaders like Francis Chan, Jennie Allen, Matt Chandler, Dr. Tony Evans, and many more.

These Bible study videos can be (and will be!) used as part of a group study at First Baptist, and they can be used for personal study and devotions as well.  Many series include free discussion guides and handouts.  If you're interested in a particular topic that isn't being offered as a class at First Baptist right now, then you have this free resource as a gift from First Baptist to help get you started.  We pray this resource will be a blessing to you and to your family as you navigate your life in light of Jesus Christ.
No strings attached.  It's really free.
Our church believes that RightNow Media is a tool that can help you live out your faith in every area of your life—at home, at work, and in your community. In addition to series on books of the Bible, RightNow Media has videos for everyone in your family on a variety of topics all for free, for you!

Spiritual Guidance/Help for Personal Matters
Some painful, personal matters of life may not be covered here in a way that offers support like one may desire.  Though not a replacement for professional counseling as needed, every member of First Baptist Kannapolis will have private access to study videos, handouts, and studies that cover topics such as troubled marriages, difficulties in parenting, personal debt, substance abuse/sexual addiction issues, mental illness, etc.  Though it's important and helpful to discuss such matters with a trusted Christian brother or sister, RightNow Media resources could be what God uses to begin the work in you of healing that you desire so badly.  Of course, there are a multitude of topics that can aid in spiritual development and growth.  There are theology courses, family courses, personal growth courses, and many, many more.  This isn't intended to replace in-person or virtual Bible study with others (as group study has a benefit that no video could ever replace), but it is a helpful tool and we pray it will be helpful, indeed, for you.

Safe Viewing for Kids!
There’s even a free video-streaming library (with downloadable app) just for kids with over 2,000 safe, entertaining videos designed for children.
