We are all drawn to stories. The epic clash between heroes and villains – or the search for true love. Why do stories capture our imaginations and stir something deep inside of us? Because we are living amid the greatest true story of all time! In this class we will explore the grand narrative of Scripture, from the first pages of Genesis to the end of Revelation. When we understand the story of the Bible, we gain added insights, and the familiar events captured in scripture come alive in deeper and more meaningful ways. Even the confusing and difficult texts become much clearer, as you encounter them in the context of the greatest story ever told.
What we believe matters. Much of the New Testament was written to address and instruct the church on their beliefs. Theology can seem like a dry and dusty pursuit of academics, far removed from day-to-day life. However, these foundational, orthodox beliefs and essential truths have united and guided Christ-followers throughout history. The goal of this class is to help disciples of Christ understand, explain, and apply the core confessions of the Christian to their everyday lives and relationship with God.
Do you ever feel like you should be reading the Bible, and praying and fasting even more? Have these spiritual disciplines become impossible to complete; a spiritual to-do list, that leaves you feeling like a failure? In this class, we seek to rightly understand the essential habits and practices that shape the Christian life. Together, we'll discover the biblical life-rhythms that have sustained and enriched the lives of God's people through the centuries. The goal of this class is to help disciples understand, value, and employ these practices in their own lives. as a means of grace and growth in godliness.
