New Bible training class at Johnson Ferry Baptist Church (Marietta, GA)

hands-on-bible

Have you ever wondered if you could really understand the Bible?

It’s not that difficult when you just:

  1. Observe
  2. Interpret
  3. Apply

We would love to be able to train you to do these 3 simple steps.

This August, Johnson Ferry Baptist will host a new BTCL class, designed to train Church leaders, lay ministers and Christian disciples.

The affordable “Bible Training for Church Leaders” program provides a streamlined, thorough, biblically sound equipping without tests or grades. The program is not light, but it is accessible to any Christian, regardless of academic credentials.

The first class in the series is:
Bible Study Methods and Rules of Interpretation
Over the course of 13 weeks, we’ll train students to properly and systematically study and interpret the Bible in order to “correctly handle the Word of Truth” so that they may be “equipped for every good work.” We’ll also demonstrate that an important purpose of studying the Bible is for personal “training in righteousness” so students will become more like Jesus Christ. (Romans 12:2; 2 Timothy 2:15, 3:16-17)

If you have ever wanted to learn how to study your Bible and to gain a broader understanding of it’s contents, this class is for you.

The course costs $75, and the fee includes the price of the course manual.  1/2 price scholarships are available if needed.

The first course,  Bible Study Methods and Rules of Interpretation, begins at 7:00 PM on Monday, August 14th, 2017.

We hope to see you there!

Location: “Ridge A/B” (Room 320), Johnson Ferry Baptist Church, 955 Johnson Ferry Rd, Marietta, GA 30068

Are you unfamiliar with BTCL? It is a comprehensive, systematic study of the Bible in a classroom setting with a five-fold purpose:

  1. Know: To comprehend biblical truth both propositionally and practically, resulting in a working knowledge of the Scriptures.
  2. Obey: By the enablement of the Holy Spirit, to explicitly and fully follow the commands of Scripture to demonstrate our love for Christ and to grow in our walk with Him.
  3. Guard: To affirm the eternal truth of Scripture, to answer challenges and to refute false doctrine.
  4. Defend: To carefully preserve the integrity of Scripture and protect from false and inaccurate interpretation.
  5. Pass-On: To train the next generation of believers to share the Gospel and to entrust them with the truth of Scripture.
