Biblical Foundations II

Many Christians have not taken time to study the various doctrines of the Bible that are critical to our spiritual growth. Students will learn the doctrines of redemption, the church, the return of Christ, and how these doctrines impact their everyday life. Understanding these Biblical foundations will lead believers to a deeper relationship with God.
