Curriculum

Our part-time Bible School is an excellent opportunity to grow in your faith and to be equipped to lead a fruitful and fulfilling Christian life.

The content focuses on a deeper understanding of the Bible and its application to our everyday lives.

There are 12 subjects divided in three terms of ten weeks each.

Onsite Students can also join at any point, as subjects do not follow one another chronologically. You can also choose to do only individual subjects or terms. Please see the calendar for subject and term dates for our onsite locations.

Term 1

1. The gifts

This subject aims to help you to understand spiritual gifts and their use. It helps to clarify your gifting, to identify areas of ministry where you can apply it and to set goals for growing in your ministry fruitfulness.

2. The first teachings

The six “first teachings” are listed in Hebrews 6:1-3: repentance from dead works, faith in God, baptisms, the laying on of hands, eternal judgement and resurrection from the dead. Students are given a solid Biblical foundation to each of the teachings so that they can mature in their faith and share these truths accurately.

3. Dynamic discipleship

This course imparts Jesus’ great call and commission to discipleship. It establishes a biblical view of what discipleship is. Students learn how to “make a disciple” and are empowered to live a Christian life that is reproduced in others.

4. Understanding your authority as a believer

Through a revelation of the concept of authority, and how it differs from power, students get to know their delegated authority as a believer in Christ. It shows how Jesus overcame sin, sickness, poverty, demons and death and how his followers can rule and reign with him.

Term 2

1. The lifestyle of faith

We examine ways how we can grow in faith, and what it practically means to “walk in faith” – from praise and thanksgiving to obedience. Students also study the examples of the faith heroes listed in Hebrews 11 to see how we can learn from them.

2. Multiplying discipleship

This subject looks at the pattern and power of making disciples through small group communities. Students gain a biblical view of group life in the New Testament Church and what that looks like within the context of Every Nation Church London. They are empowered to be fully participating and fruitful group members, and are equipped with the skills necessary to lead life-changing groups.

3. Everyday apologetics

A course to equip believers with the knowledge, heart and skills to share their faith in their everyday culture of opposing worldviews and ideas. Students learn how to answer some of the most commonly questions and objections about the Christian faith. They also practise active listening and ways to field questions.

4. Developing an effective lifestyle of prayer

By studying the example of Jesus, Paul and the early church, students get a Biblical foundation for what it means to have an effective lifestyle of prayer. We also look at the different types of New Testament prayers. Most importantly, this subject helps students to grow in their desire to pray, as well as the discipline of doing so daily.

Term 3

1. Know your Bible

This course aims to inspire a passion and understanding of the Scriptures. It gives an introduction to the origin, content and structure of the Bible and equips students with basic hermeneutical tools for accurate Bible study and interpretation.

2. Jesus in Genesis

We explore how the redemption story of the Cross unfolds right from the beginning of scripture to the death and resurrection of Christ. The course encourages a Christ-centred interpretation of the Bible by looking at prophetic signposts right through the Old Testament.

3. The leadership launch

This subject equips students to step up as Christian leaders in all spheres of life. It shares vital leadership truths and skills and helps students to realise their full leadership potential.

4. Developing dynamic spiritual disciplines

Your destiny is developed by daily disciplines. This practical and inspiring course looks at the how and why of developing dynamic spiritual disciplines of daily devotions, worship, fasting, fellowship, communion, financial stewardship and the Sabbath.
