(Roman 10:13-15) For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? As it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace and bring glad tidings of good things.

Each Wednesday night members and non-members are learning the word of God. Through conversation, careful digging into the word and deliberate analysis students discover God's will and desire for His people. The goal of bible study is to determine what the Bible says, what it means and how it applies to our life. When we fail to understand and apply scriptures we have not completed what God wants for each of us.

Bishop Ellis, so determined that we are able to "rightly divide the word of truth"  (2nd Timothy 2:16) he implemented an aggressive bible study program. This program began with a detailed review of How to Effectively Study the Bible. This course was designed to better prepare students in their bible study by using their bible along with dictionaries, concordances and biblical maps for a thorough understanding.

At the completion of How to Effectively Study the Bible, each book in the Bible is studied with a focus on complete:

Origin and History of each book
Observation of each Book
Interpretation of each Book
Application of each Book
Correlation of each Book

Many books have been written for our information; the Bible was given for our transformation. When we do not learn as we should we stop growing until we learn those same lessons through other experiences tailor made by God to make us mature. (Psalms 32:8) I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go. I will counsel you and watch over you.

The grass witherth, flowers fadeth, but the word of our God shall stand forever. (Isaiah 40:8)

With appreciation and gratitude we thank GOD for the teaching we receive.
