Obedience, From The Heart

Obedience, From The Heart

We are interested in teaching people to obey all that Jesus commands. However, we are not pursuing a checklist or rule book. Furthermore, we are not filling minds with obscure Bible trivia. Rather, we are seeking to change people’s hearts, step by step, through sharing the Word and depending on the Spirit in prayer.

Content-Centered

Content-Centered

Truth does exist and can be known. Truth is ultimately expressed in the Bible and the person of Jesus Christ. We believe the Bible is for Everyone. The student can discover truth through the self-study of scripture (Acts 17:11) and discern truth from untruth (1 John 4:1-6). For each class we will limit our study to a relatively small portion of God’s truth.

Teacher-Directed

Teacher-Directed

The teacher is God’s representative to keep learners engaged and functioning within the perimeters of the class. They continually point the learner to God rather than act as a substitute for God. They function as a midwife helping the student learn through thinking and doing, rather than as a surrogate doing the learning and thinking for the student.

Student-Discovered

Student-Discovered

The student is ultimately responsible for his or her own learning. Retention and application of learning, what the Bible calls obedience, best occurs when the learner is active in thinking, writing, speaking, doing and not passive in only listening.

We ask questions that require processing during the week because we want people to think for themselves. We want people to experience loving God with their mind. This is often taxing and tiresome but is normal.

For example, when we workout our body we experience soreness and fatigue. This discomfort is viewed as an indicator of a good workout and helpful results are expected.

When we work with our mind we should also expect fatigue and discomfort. Rather than avoiding that pain we should expect a good result from that mental work.

There will be mental work (questions and exercises) connected to all our classes as we challenge our people to love God with their mind.
