- New Testament Survey: This course brings unity and chronological sequence to New Testament study by weaving the contents of the books around a central theme---the person of Christ. Divisions are the synoptic Gospels, Gospel of John, Book of Acts, Pauline Epistles in chronological order, General Epistles, and Book of Revelation.
- Ministry of Evangelism: Contemporary evangelism is not really different--and yet extremely different--than any other time in history. The world of the first disciples was full of idolatry, political corruption, and gross immortality; much like our own culture. We must be bold, offer hope, be genuine, build relationships, and emphasize wholeness. This course will take an in-depth look at evangelism for the 21st
March 7, 2023 - April 11, 2023 – Classes are held each Tuesday from 6:30pm - 9pm
- You and Your Bible: Believers should be well-informed about the Word of God. God created mankind in his own image and likeness for the purpose of contact and communion with Him. This course presents the inspiration and authorship of the Bible; how it was preserved, why we believe it, how to deal with its problems and critics, the role of archaeology and ways to study it more effectively.
- Biblical Beliefs aka Systematic Theology: What was it that lead to the early church's success? Not success in financial terms or political influence, early Christians overcame persecution to become the most dominant religious force the world has ever known. Their fundamental faith commitments supported a manner of life that linked beliefs and behavior, or doctrine and practice. The Apostle Paul warned that deceptions are a significant danger to Christians. Truth, then, becomes essential for living in perilous times.
