Bible Studies
.Bible Lessons for Small Groups/Sunday School

One of the better methods of communicating truths is by having small group "fireside" studies.  In this ambience, the leader must not project him/herself as an all-knowing, authoritive preacher, but a fellow seeker of truth.  Creating this ambience is to allow the Word to be the final authority to all questions of faith and practice and to allow the Spirit of God  to guide to all truth.

The following lessons are designed as guides to be used by the leader to allow the Spirit to truly lead us to all truth.  Freedom of expression in sincerity should be encouraged, but responding to them must always be in love with a desire to edify each other and the body of Christ.

It has been said, by experts in education, that the human mind was designed to learn by use of all five senses.  In the following lessons we especially use the sense of vision as a teaching tool.  Our Lord used many everyday visual pictures that people were familiar with to teach powerful spiritual truths.  We encourage the leader to utilize these visual illustrations as a tool for retaining the truths that the Spirit reveals to us.
