Our Bible Studies

2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NASB)
All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; 17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NLT)
All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. 17 God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.  

Imitators of God

Conforming to the Image of Christ

Goals of Our Instruction

The goals of our instruction are threefold. Our first objective is that every Christian man understands God's purpose in salvation is to redeem him from sin and to conform him "to the image of His Son." 

  • Romans 8:29 (NASB)
  • For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren

Second, that every Christian man be an imitator of God's characteristics and above all His love (cf. 1 Tim. 1:5). 

  • Ephesians 5:1-2 (NASB)
  • Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children; 2 and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma. 

Third, that the whole of a Christian man’s life be the reproduction of godliness as seen in the person of Christ. 

  • Ephesians 4:15 (NASB)
  • But speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ.

Fundamentals of the Faith

Fundamentals of the Faith (FOF) by John MacArthur, consists of thirteen Lessons to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ. 

FOF has played a key role in the spiritual growth of many believers. It provides believers with a rock-solid theological foundation. It helps mature Christians sharpen their understanding of key doctrines and equips them for evangelism and discipleship. It fosters the only kind of unity that truly means anything in the church--unity based on a shared understanding of God's truth.

Of course the power in the curriculum is not in its format or layout, bu in the Word of god on which it is based. We know that that when the Holy Spirit uses His Word in people's hearts, their lives are transformed. That's why our ministry is thrilled to use these materials as part of our teaching offerings for the benefit and blessing of those who complete the course to the glory of God.  

Teachers: Richard Valenzuela, Keith Martin,
