Bible Doctrine

The Bible is God’s truth and is useful for doctrine and teaching, “showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, [and] training us to live God’s way” (2 Timothy 3:16). Jesus told His followers that as they were going, making, and baptizing disciples, they were also to teach them everything in God’s Word. It is vital for believers to have a firm grasp on the key doctrines of Scripture. This class will use three sessions (one month each) to provide an in-depth look at these Bible doctrines.

SESSION 1: Foundation

  • God, His characteristics, the work of creation, and the Trinity
  • The Bible, its transmission (revelation and inspiration), and its power (eternal, inerrant, and ultimate authority)
  • The human condition, that we are made in the image of God, and the entrance and effects of sin

SESSION 2: Salvation

  • The deity, incarnation, and earthly life of Jesus Christ
  • The work of Christ on the cross and the blessings of salvation
  • The person and work of the Holy Spirit

SESSION 3: Transformation

  • The true church: membership, spiritual gifts, purpose, local churches
  • Christian living, spiritual growth, making disciples, spiritual warfare
  • Christ’s Second Coming, the Tribulation, the Millennium, Hell and the Lake of Fire, the new Heaven and Earth, eternity
