Revelation and the End Times

Are we in what the Bible calls "the end times?"  What does the book of Revelation say about this period in God's historic timetable?  This study looks at the biblical text and helps participants better understand what God is communicating through the book which promises a blessing for those who hear, read, and apply its truths (Revelation 1:3).

The Story of Reality

Biblical Christianity is more than just another private religious view. It's more than just a personal relationship with God or a source of moral teaching. Christianity is a picture of reality. It explains why the world is the way it is. When the pieces of this puzzle are properly assembled, we see the big picture clearly. Christianity is a true story of how the world began, why the world is the way it is, what role humans play in the drama, and how all the plotlines of the story are resolved in the end. This study explains the five words that form the narrative backbone of the Christian story, identifying how "God," "man," "Jesus," "cross," and "resurrection" encompass the message of the Bible from start to finish.
