A perceived disconnect between science and the Bible is a significant factor in why many start doubting and drift away from the church. Yet, many Christians are not equipped to understand how the Bible can inform their understanding of the origin of life, evolution, the fossil record, dinosaurs and other topics. As Christians strive to uphold the basis of their faith and biblical authority, it is important that they be able to provide answers to these questions. This course is designed to help the student develop a solid biblical worldview and to instill in the learner a love for God’s Word and His world, focusing on the book of Genesis. The student will be shown that the authority of Scripture should be upheld from the very first verse. A variety of interesting topics will be presented using "Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis" DVD series that engages viewers of all ages with scientific evidence that confirms Genesis as a chronological record of God’s creation.

As the gospel spread across the Roman world in the first decades after Jesus’ earthly ministry, conflict arose. Jews and Gentiles were believing the gospel, and a struggle over what it meant to be a Christian began. What does it mean to live under grace? Do you have to keep the Law to be a Christian? All of it or just part of it? Who is right? How will we know? God used an apostle to write a letter to some churches that were struggling with this issue, a letter that still speaks today. Its message clearly defines the relationship between Law and grace, and how Christians live under grace, led by the Spirit, free from bondage.

This is an incredible opportunity to begin setting a pattern of reading the Word and opening it together with other men. You can sign up a group of four or as an individual and we will help you find a group. Sign up by emailing our Pastor of Spiritual Formation and Theology, Curt Sparkman, at csparkman@fbcgt.org.
