Bible Doctrines

The purpose of this class is to give the student an understanding
of the ten basic major doctrines of the Bible.

  • DOCTRINES COVERED:
       
    In the workbook we will not cover the doctrines in the same order as in the textbook.  We will cover the doctrine of The Scriptures (Bibliology) first, so start with the textbook section entitled "The Doctrine of the Scriptures."  After that we will follow the order of the textbook beginning with "The Doctrine of God."

  • METHOD OF STUDY:
    1.
     Read the text, "The Great Doctrines of the Bible" by Dr. William Evans and the companion workbook by Dr. T.E. VanBuskirk, looking up and reading all scriptures in your Bible that are referenced in the workbook and the textbook, and complete the tests as you complete each of the ten sections in those books.
    2. 
    Student should complete only one section per week.
        Even one section every two weeks for some lessons will be reasonable given the depth of the material.
    3. 
    There will be a final test at the end of the course.  All tests will be open book.


  • Blanks in workbook  The workbook was originally written for an on-campus course and was adapted for use online.  There are blanks throughout the workbook that cannot be filled in online.  They were left there only to help ensure that the students are looking up every reference in their King James Bible.

  • ATTENDANCE:
    Suggested attendance for the course is 15 weeks
    .
    Suggested attendance for each lesson in the course is 1 week
    .

  • TESTING:  Once you finish the last section and have taken and passed that section test, you should review all of the section tests, noting questions you had missed and the correct answers which you were required to look up in the textbook/workbook, and then take the Final Test.

  • We do not keep any records for Monitoring Only students.  If you want to keep a record of your progress through this course you may download a Course Record Form on which you can keep all pertinent information for this current course.

  • How to complete this class.

    1. Read the workbook and the textbook and look up all scripture references in your Bible.

    2. Pay close attention in the workbook to the portions marked:  "Homework" and "NOTE: These will be test questions" because you will need the answers to those questions for various tests.

    3. As you finish each section of the workbook, take the corresponding section test.
     
    Do not go on to study the next section of the workbook until you have passed the current section test and found the correct answers to any questions missed.  You should look up the answers to any questions missed even if you passed the test before going on to the next lesson.  This will enable you to gain the best understanding of the material in the course..

    4.  After finishing all required reading and passing the Section tests and finding the correct answers to all questions missed on any test, whether or not you passed the test, then you may retrieve the password and take the Final Test.

Bible Doctrines II.

Through a study of the "Fundamentals of the Faith" you will gain a deeper understanding of the fundamentals upon which the modern understanding of the Scriptures is built.  These fundamentals were once believed by all who claimed to be Christian.  This is not true today, as you will find when you study the course, Comparative Theology, and other courses that address modern and older beliefs.  Through this course you will understand better what beliefs are fundamental to true Christian faith and practice.
