Serving Jesus effectively requires character, conviction, and competence. Equip is our weekly training sessions designed to help us grow in all three.
This semester we’ll be exploring the topic of Biblical Theology
How do you read the Bible? Is it a series of unrelated books where people recount their experience of God? Is it a collection of stories about how to be a good person? Be like Abraham! Be like David! Be like Jesus! Is it a series of promises directly to you?
Biblical Theology is about how the 66 books of the Bible—from Genesis to Revelation—actually form one overarching story.
Join us as we discover how each part of the Bible—and we ourselves—fit into this one, big, overarching story of God. It will help you understand your Bible better and stand in awe of God.
Mondays 5pm or Wednesdays 2pm or any other time!
