Today we conclude our 3-part series called, God’s Mind on Paper. Through this series we have talked about how the thoughts in the mind of God have gotten to us in the Scripture. We used terms like: Revelation, Inspiration, The Canon, Preservation, Transmission, Translation, Interpretation and Illumination. Wow, that’s a mouthful! Today we will briefly review and then add our final thoughts to this critical subject.

It is impossible to overstate the importance of the Bible. People and the Word of God are the only two eternal things in this world. Matthew 24:35 says, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.” We want to stand with confidence of the Word of God.

Maybe you have sometimes struggled to understand the Bible. Through our partnership with Florida Bible College, we can help you to study the Bible correctly.

Starting January 17, Florida Bible College will be offering a Bible Study Methods course right here at our church on Wednesday evenings from 7-9 pm. I will be teaching this class, and I look forward to helping my students handle God’s Word correctly. Take a look at the course description:

“This course introduces a systematic approach to interpreting the Bible, in which students observe, interpret, apply, and correlate Scripture within the framework of Christian theology and history.”

The cost for Circle Church members to take this class is only $255 to audit or $525 if taken for college credit. To begin the registration process, pick up an application on the information table in the lobby or complete our online application at

May we always be known as people of The Book — the Bible!
