Description

Does your teen understand the Bible and how it applies to his or her life? A 2022 post-COVID Barna Group study reported: “Bible reading is not the norm for today’s teens… research shows that teens generally have positive opinions of the Bible… Despite these high views, engagement with the Bible remains low, and we see many teens express uncertainty about how scripture can influence their lives and the world around them.” In the past 5-10 years, TPS has also observed a significant decline in student knowledge of the Bible and understanding of the fundamentals of the Christian faith. This course provides the student a solid overview of fundamental teachings of the Bible and essentials of the Christian faith. It promotes biblical literacy and a builds strong framework of Christian doctrine. The class is interactive and upbeat, with learning through direct instruction, group discussion, and assignments that apply study of the Bible to shaping faith, character, and behavior, and strengthening mental health and well-being. The course workload is light (so it does not interfere with your other courses) and there is encouraging feedback in the coursework. This course is also great preparation for the TPS Bible Survey course.
