A Christian World and Life View
In Bible class, we see how God has revealed himself to us and begin to see how the Bible stories that we know fit together. As we memorize Scripture, we apply it to our daily lives working and playing together. We see how God has provided for his creation as we study animals in their habitats and bow in awe before the Lord of Creation as we examine the solar system. God’s orderly nature is reflected in the consistency of mathematics. We begin to learn to evaluate what we read from a biblical perspective.
