Know what you believe and why!
Discovering Doctrine: A Personal Bible Study, walks the student through discovering and organizing what the Bible teaches about ten important doctrines:
• The Bible
• Jesus Christ
• Holy Spirit
• The Church
• Future Events
This study does not tell you what to believe or what the author of the study believes; it points you to Scripture and helps you discover what the Bible says you should believe. As you read through the Bible—whether during school work, personal devotions, family devotions, or church gatherings—Discovering Doctrine encourages you to watch for and record verses in your readings that relate to the ten doctrines. After you have read through the Bible and recorded all those teachings, you will summarize your findings with written narrations, thus composing your own personal doctrinal statement.
