Topical Bible Studies

Sometimes, a Christian has a specific question in mind or issue in his life. We just want to know "What does God say about...?"If there is a particular question that you have been wondering about, take a look at these topical studies. Maybe you will find what you're looking for. Then again, you might find something you didn't know you were wondering about.
a Biblical explanation on the important of repentance
"Reason for Repentance"

The Bible speaks of repentance as an important part of the Christian life. What makes it so important? Is God dependent on our repentance before He can forgive us, or do we need to make a change in our attitude before God before God will have a change of heart toward us?

the importance of prayer
"Purpose of Prayer"


Prayer has often been referred to as the Christian's native breath, yet it is an aspect of the Christian life many struggle to practice consistently. How can we be certain God hears our prayers? What if nothing changes after we pray? How is it even possible to pray without ceasing? If you are looking for answers to such questions about prayer then this Bible Study is for you.

sacrament vs. sacrifice
"Sacrifice & Sacrament"


In many Christian denominations there is a confusion about the difference between a sacrifice and a sacrament. A sacrifice is something that man does for God. A sacrament is something God does for man. When churches teach that Holy Baptism and the Lord's Supper are things which they do in obedience to God, they are turning God's grace into works which man performs for God rather than what God does for man. This Bible study emphasizes the distinction between the two and thus shows the great comfort that God offers us in the sacraments.

the signs of the times
"The Olivet Discourse"


Many point to supposed "signs" that the end of time is upon us. The teachings of Jesus in His Olivet Discourse (so named because of the location from which He taught His disciples) has been the subject of much debate within the Christian Church for generations. A major reason for this ongoing debate is, quite simply, a misunderstanding of Jesus' words and of prophetic language.

 

To receive the instruction Jesus has in mind for us, it will be necessary both to take Jesus’ words as they come, unless there is Scriptural warrant to take them in a different way.

Timely Topics
"Timely Topics"

 

​Does it seem like you're swimming upstream against the rushing river of society's thinking? You believe one thing, but so many around you at your work, school, and in your neighborhood - not to mention influential people that you hear or read about - believe something else. It's almost like you speak a completely different language.

It's often difficult to speak intelligently on current issues, especially in a way that is faithful to God's Word and loving toward others. This series of lessons brings some of today's challenging topics into the open and into the light of God's Word so that we can be prepared to speak the truth in a spirit of Christian love.
