BSN (Bible School for the Nations)
The BSN chronologically studies through the OT and NT to discover the truths of the Bible that transform individuals and nations. Skills are taught to interpret the Bible in the context of its history, culture and grammar, to approach difficult passages, to construct a biblical timeline resource, and to creatively and effectively communicate the Word of God.
BSN’s 3 major goals:
- To teach an OVERVIEW of the BIBLE: We chronologically study through the whole Bible, highlighting the Nature and Character of God along the way—after all it’s His story. The last two weeks of the course are designed to teach how God’s story has continued since the Bible. We teach how Liberty has spread across the world from the early church to today! We use Historical-Grammatical Approach.
- To build a BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW : As you examine the Gospel message and God’s principles of discipling nations, including the areas of the family, the church, education, civil government and economics, you will be challenged to align your worldview, your message and your methods with those of the Book. Grow in your love for God as you deepen in your understanding of His character and as you build a Biblical foundation for life and ministry.
- To Train PEOPLE to be TEACHERS! One of the main goals in the BSN is to train teachers who can effectively teach and disciple the nations. The BSN outreach works alongside the Biblical Education and Leadership Training (BELT) ministry.
Biblical Education & Leadership Training (BELT)
The vision of BELT is to see people transformed by the Word of God by focusing on training community and church leaders who already have a sphere of influence in their society.
BELT’s main tool presently is a series of three intensive Bible seminars called the Transformation Series. The goals for all three courses are to:
Multiply leaders who know God and His ways and are able to teach others
Equip men and women who can reason from the Scriptures to all areas of
Build unity between church
The Level One Seminar, Transformation of the Heart, focuses on the Gospel message with an emphasis on repentance and reconciliation to the purposes of God.
The Level Two Seminar, Transformation of Character, deals with Christian life matters of spiritual victory, relationships, prayer, stewardship, and leadership.
The Level Three Seminar, Transformation of Society, examines Biblical principles for societal institutions beginning with the individual, family, church and extending to education, civil government and economics.
The BELT seminars are conducted to make the teachings as culturally relevant as possible so as to meet the felt needs of the people. The New Testament or whole Bible should be available in the local language for use during the course. Translated course outlines are given to the participants at each session.
Practical application of the material taught and outreach opportunities are fundamental aspects of the course.
