Tuguegarao 2020

HERMENEUTICS/INDUCTIVE BIBLE STUDY(2 CREDITS)
Hermeneutics is the study of the system of rules, principles and methods applied during interpretation and explanation. It is considered to be the art of exegesis and translation.

This class is designed to instruct students in the foundational principles and practices of Bible interpretation, providing a framework with which to view all Scripture. The inductive method of Bible study will be taught with attention paid to the various features of a text that contribute to the interpretative process.
Special emphasis will be given to the role of biblical inerrancy, inspiration, objective meaning, problems in Hermeneutics, and the nature of Scripture itself.

ACTS (3 CREDITS)*
The class studies the book of Acts exegetically. Attention is given to biblical principles exercised by the early church and how those same principles apply today. Importantly, emphasis is given to the role the Holy Spirit has in the building up of the Body of Christ. Students are encouraged to use Acts as an example on how to cultivate a Spirit-led and mission-driven relationship in the Lord.

ROMANS (3 CREDITS)*
The class is a verse-by-verse study of the book of Romans, a book regarded as the most systematic presentation of the doctrine of salvation in the Bible. Students will look carefully at how the saving life of Christ, through the work of the Holy Spirit, does transform lives.

EPHESIANS (2 CREDITS)
The objective in this class is to give a student a thorough working knowledge on the book of Ephesians, one of the prison epistles. A student will study the book verse-by-verse, which includes major doctrines presented by Paul. Students will see a glorious picture of Christ, the Head, and His Body, the Church.

COLOSSIANS (2 CREDITS)
This class is an exegetical study on the book of Colossians. Attention is given to the Lord Jesus Christ, the central theme of the book. Students will consider His majesty, pre-eminence, authority, sufficiency, and fullness that we might grow in faith concerning how to walk in His provisions for abundance of life! With the verse-by-verse study, you will have the opportunity to extensively correlate passages from other portions of Scripture.

I CORINTHIANS (2 CREDITS)
In his first letter to the Corinthians, Paul demonstrates how the Gospel relates, redeems, and transforms culture. Paul addresses numerous topics such as schism, sexual immorality, marriage, singleness, idolatry, and disorder in public worship to name just a few. 1Corinthians shows that sanctification comes by faith in Christ alone.

II CORINTHIANS (2 CREDITS)
The purpose in this class is to study the history, context, and theology of Paul’s second letter to the Corinthian church. Paul wrote this letter to dispute false teachers and build up his readers. Emphasis is placed on the basic hermeneutical principles of observation, interpretation, correlation, and application. As a student, you can expect to gain an appreciation of Paul’s painful autobiography.

OT372 I & II SAMUEL / LIFE OF DAVID (2 CREDITS)
I & II Samuel is an in-depth look into a time period in the nation of Israel when they moved from being a nation that had God as their king, to a nation that would be ruled by a man. These two historic books of the Bible give us a clear view of three individuals who played a major part in the history of the nation, King Saul, King David and the prophet Samuel.

You will learn much about God and the type of person He chooses to work through from both the triumphs and the tragedies of these three men who helped shape the course of a nation and history.

JOHN (3 CREDITS)*
This course hopes to bring transformation to the student through a verse-by-verse study of John’s gospel; it is designed to impart exegetical understanding leading to a Christ-focused passion through the text, for His glory. The book is recognized as the unique fourth gospel that offers a portrait of Jesus Christ like no other book of the Bible.

CHURCH HISTORY (2 CREDITS)
This course is designed as an overview of the major events, movements, doctrines, and people associated with the growth of the Christian church from the apostolic era until the present. Consideration is given to the Church’s doctrine and practice, and how we can learn from past generations of Christians.

CHRISTIAN LIVING (2 CREDITS)
This is a unique course designed to introduce students to the committed Christian life and all of its practical aspects. Attention is given to understanding and applying the Bible, prayer and fasting, growing in grace, marriage and relationships, and special topics related to the Christian life.

REVELATION (3 CREDITS)*
The Book of Revelation is a prophetic work of great importance. In this class, the Book of Revelation will be taught exegetically in order to help students achieve a clear understanding of its teaching regarding Jesus Christ, the Church, and the future.

Pray for us

“…pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ…”
Colossians 4:3

NL-March-22-B

Between Us

I was awake at 1:30 am and surprised that He did wake me early to call on Him. I was just crying out to him about the natural uncertainty of things as I got to think about a lot of things, started to wonder how you will get here, the funds for the shipping, the house, the building and all…

It’s the peripheral expenses: fencing and taxes (for the property), registration, and the list went on…parading. Then the forgotten failure, of why and how the plan is now as it is…It is okay…you do not need to reply, it is my way of sounding off….

Reading my dearest’s note left for me on Skype, my heart sank and remembered the failures of my past. The should have’s, could have’s, began to flood my mind instantly. But God, who is faithful, and through His finished work in Christ Jesus, quickly reminded me that He is making a “new thing” in our lives.

How apt is it that through Colossians 3:2-3 where He says, “Set your mind on things above, not on the things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God,” is part of our Bible study this week. Such an encouragement could not come at all from the wisdom of men but from the heart of our Father in heaven.

Throughout the day, the Holy Spirit brings back to remembrance the beauty of His Word. He did through His written word and even through the radio. It would be easy for one such as I to fall into the trap of self pity, the Lord did not want me to take part in such thoughts. (Philippians 4:4-6)

Am I to look at the provision that is to come, or shall I look to Him? “To behold His beauty…(Psalm 27:4)” The answer is clear, He deserves nothing less than complete obedience to Him and Him alone. He knows what we need even before we ask Him (Matthew 6:8). He is growing me and my Nenita for His glory (John 14:13) for the work He has prepared for us.

Late this afternoon, Pastor Chuck Smith was on Acts 23:11, where he reminded me of when Paul was put in the barracks and when all seemed lost for the cause of spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Lord stood by him, and said, “Be of good cheer (be of good courage)…”

James reminds us that, “…count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.” James 1:2-4. Praise the Lord.

Thank you Lord, that You are always with us. (Romans 8:28-39)

I love You Lord.

Thank You for the love Nenita and I have in You.
