Students are encouraged to use their New International Version Student Bible daily. Middle School Bible courses include New Testament Survey (Grade 6), the study of Wisdom as presented in the Book of Proverbs (Grade 7), and Old Testament Survey (Grade 8).
The Grade 6 course is designed to give students exposure to the Redemptive story which culminates in the life of Christ and is spread through the work of the Church found in the New Testament. Throughout the course, students will be introduced to the themes of each New Testament book and learn how to apply Scripture to their lives.
The Grade 7 course is designed for students to draw knowledge, wisdom, and understanding for themselves from the Word of God. The course goes beyond doctrinal and factual knowledge and applies guidance to real life scenarios. The hope is for students to wise up under the conviction of the Holy Spirit and to see them conform to the image of Jesus Christ.
The Grade 8 course provides a basic introduction to the structure and themes of the Old Testament. As students journey through this fast-moving survey, they will discover truths and applications that God placed in each book of the Old Testament.
Foundations of Faith I
This class will focus on introducing students to the person of Christ and His teachings. Students will examine the concepts of reality, faith, and truth, followed by an introduction to the Christ-centered Theistic worldview as it compares to other major worldviews. Students will be challenged to apply the definitions of faith and truth through a personal examination of the claim that the Bible is God’s collected book of inerrant revelation. Ultimately, the course will provide an opportunity to understand the foundational teachings of Christ in light of the canon of Scripture.
Foundations of Faith II
This class explores concepts introduced in Foundations of Faith I course in more depth. Students are provided the opportunity to examine the storyline and personal application of God’s revelation through a Christ-centered lens.
