The Bible was composed in such a way that as beginners mature, its meaning grows with them.

Augustine


How well do you know your Bible? In a time when Christians enjoy unprecedented access to teaching, the temptation to passively consume content can be strong. Our Bible studies are designed to draw you into active learning of our sacred text.


Unlike our core classes, which are a one-time commitment, our Bible studies provide a continuous opportunity to learn the Bible in community. They walk line-by-line through entire books of the Bible from start to finish, with the goal of training you to comprehend, interpret and apply the text in a way that yields transformation. Employing the three key elements of personal study, group discussion and teaching time (in that order), our men’s and women’s Bible studies cultivate both Bible literacy and rich community in the context of active, dedicated learning environments.

The teaching teams interact with one another as they prepare, so the teachings are similar but not identical.
