Providence Bible Academy
Searching for a more meaningful level of study into scripture?
Next Class Begins Aug 23, 2021
In this weekly class, led by Larry Helyer, former Professor of Biblical Studies at Taylor University, you will enter imaginatively into the Bible and take hold of the message. The full class takes place over the course of three years, but you can join at any time. With spring and fall semesters, each semester studies a different section of the Bible in detail. At the end of the three years you will have completed the entire Bible and realized how God revealed Himself and His will to His people.
As the class progresses, we will:
- Read through the Bible in its entirety.
- Explore key landmarks along the way.
- Learn that the Bible is, in fact, one big story that points to God’s redemption of the world through Jesus Christ.
If you’ve found studying the Bible to be hard, filled with difficult principles to grasp, and sometimes irrelevant to your life today, this course will demonstrate just the opposite: an absolutely essential requirement for a balanced Christian life.
Join us! Push out into the deep water and let your net down into the depths of God’s Word.
