Gospel makes disciples of Jesus through giving great importance to learning together and being students of God’s Word. Far too many Christians are intimidated by the Bible because they know a bunch of “stuff” but have little idea how it fits together. A disciple who stays intimidated by the Bible will avoid God’s Word, and will remain stunted and frustrated in their growth. At Gospel, we are all students.
Rather than grasping at random studies or gathering by haphazard age groups, GBC organizes studies to intentionally and progressively build Bible knowledge and understanding. We have 4 sessions each year. Our first one is a 6 week study that the whole church goes through together (starts in September). The other 3 sessions are 11 weeks each that run November-July. Available studies for the upcoming year are published in the fall when sign-ups happen.
Get the big picture of what the Bible is about and the major events that mark the progression of God’s Kingdom plan. Students begin to understand big picture connections in the Bible for themselves.
