1. (12 weeks)  The story of the Bible : a Survey of Biblical History               

            Learn the “big picture” of Bible’s overarching story, and understand how all it parts fits into that whole.  The Bible story unfolds over the course of 12 main historical eras from the creation of the heavens and the earth (Gen. 1) to the recreation of “a new heaven and a new earth” (Rev. 21).  This course will teach basic flow of these historical eras and how bible story moves through them.

            Christianity is about following and being devoted to a PERSON: Jesus Christ.  But following him involves knowing, understanding, and holding to certain truths about God, Jesus, the Bible, the world, and the church.  “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples.  Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” John 8:31-32.  This course will teach the most important and foundational truth of Christianity, and it will answer some of life’s difficult questions.
