A CHRISTIAN WORLD-VIEW
The Bible is the foundation of the Christ-centered life. Through careful study and memorization of the Bible, we will develop and defend a Christian world-view, identify and live God’s purposes for our life, and grow in Christian character and God’s grace. The fruit of this study will be “that the man of God will be adequate and equipped for any good work”
II Timothy 3:14-17.
