The Bible program seeks to give our students a strong understanding of scriptural truths and applications that they will be able to take with them into life. Classes are divided by gender from seventh through eleventh grades.
Bible 9 & 10
Alternates yearly between Old Testament survey and New Testament survey. The Old Testament survey highlights key Old Testament themes (such as God’s sovereignty, faithfulness and love) as well as important historical, geographical and biographical information. The New Testament survey provides a study and overview of the Pauline Epistles, general Epistles and Revelation. An understanding of the cultural background and historical context also enables the student to gain a deeper understanding of Bible truths.
Includes study of both Christian doctrines and world religions. Students study doctrines about God, man, Christ, salvation and the church. Major world religions—including Judaism, Islam, Mormonism, Jehovah’s Witnesses and Roman Catholicism—are compared to the truth of Christianity.
Covers four major topics. An apologetics study teaches students to be prepared to defend their Christian beliefs against some common objections to Christianity. A personal evangelism and discipleship section includes study and hands-on training in these topics.
A section on creation and ethics covers topics including biblical creation, evolution’s claims, intelligent design, ecological ethics, and the sanctity of human life. The final section explores the different genres in the Bible and demonstrates correct application to modern life, showing students how to study and obey the Word of God.
