All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.  2 Tim 3:16-17

The goal of this class is for participants to gain a deeper understanding of topics such as the authority of Scripture, the nature of God, salvation, and the church. Whether you're deepening your existing knowledge or studying the 2LBC for the first time, this class invites you to stand on the shoulders of our Baptist forbears as we study the confession in the light of God's Word.

College and Young Singles

Enjoying God – Jordan Ring

Textbook: The Bible with study guidance from the Enjoying God by Tim Chester

We believe in God, we serve God, we trust God, but would we say that we enjoy God on a day-to-day basis? What exactly does a personal relationship with God look like, and how is it even possible? This seminal work by Tim Chester shows us how we can enjoy God in every moment of every day, whether we are experiencing good times or hard times. He explores how the Father, the Son and the Spirit relate to us in our day-to-day lives, and how to respond. As we interact more with God and understand how awesome he is, we will experience joy in our service, our witness, our sacrifices, and our suffering.
