We Believe the
Bible is for Everyone!

Bible School isn’t reserved for the “spiritual elite.” It’s for everyone: stay-at-home mothers, group leaders, business-people, teachers, singles and anyone who wants to grow in following Jesus. You are free to take a single course are you’re able, or you can complete the one, two, or three-year certificate process.

We believe someone who consistently follows Jesus has a life marked by three distinctions:

  • A personal hunger to be led more by Jesus.
  • An evident passion to lead more like Jesus.
  • An outward focus which leads more to Jesus
