Theology of Paul Seminar

Why study the writings and theology of the apostle Paul? The subject of the theology of the apostle Paul is far too vast to examine exhaustively in one semester. Thus this course is designed to analyze and interpret the “building blocks,” i.e., the major themes and topics that form the foundation of the Apostle Paul's theology. The goal of better understanding […]View School Page

This Isn’t Just For You

In our first week of SBS, one of our teachers had us write down why we came. I wrote this in my notebook, “I came to SBS to gain my own understanding about this book I dedicate my life to and to gain intimacy with the One who called me.” My heart was pure and I believe […]

Sex Is Bad – But It’s Great!

AN UNMARRIED WOMAN’S PERSPECTIVE In recent years I’ve had countless conversations with Christian young people – some married and some unmarried, who have expressed a lack of conviction when it comes to sexual integrity.

Who are We Really?

The Gospel of New Creation In 2 Corinthians 5:17, Paul proclaims, “if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold the new has come.” What does the word “new” bring to mind? For me I think of words like fresh, untouched and flawless. I see images of beautiful, […]

What’s The Deal With The Trinity?

BELIEVING IN THE TRINITY AFFECTS ETERNITY Have you ever asked yourself “What in the world do I need theology for?” Do we really need more theoretical knowledge to fill our heads with? Theology is not just the theoretical opinions of a bunch of grey-haired, dusty scholars arguing over whose interpretation of a given Bible passage is the “right” […]

The Road to Damascus

I have been a Christian since I was about 4 years old. I have grown up in a Christian home and have read my Bible quite a bit throughout the last 22 years. As I have grown and matured in my faith Paul has become one of my favorite characters within the Bible. I have […]

The Truth Will Set You Free

I had never before seen the Holy Spirit fall with such power and conviction as it did while teaching God’s plan of redemption in a Nepali village. It was beautiful there. Rice paddies and vegetable fields were terraced into the sides of green hills. We slept on the third story of a traditional Nepali house, […]
