For the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ

Bible at the Core

A Bible minor is the core of every Cedarville academic program. Always among our students' favorites, Bible classes stretch you to think about God, His Word, and His world in whole new ways.

  • Spiritual Formation is a dynamic process that lasts a lifetime. This class equips you for the journey. You will be challenged to pursue a deep and growing relationship with Christ through the personal study of God's Word. In particular you will learn how to study the Bible for yourself in the section that focuses on Inductive Bible study and you will learn about the process of sanctification, that is, how Christian character is formed and the role that you play in the process.
  • Old Testament Literature and New Testament Literature will make the Bible real as you explore chapters, stories, events, and literary forms as they fit together in God's redemptive story. This reinforces the model of interpreting and applying the Scripture learned in Spiritual Formation.
  • Theology 1 and 2 build on the biblical knowledge students have learned in their previous Bible classes. The goal now is to synthesize and systematize that knowledge as we seek to understand what God says about the great questions of the past and present. We are using the Bible as our foundation, but also learning from the great Christian theologians of the past.

These classes will challenge your thinking. More importantly, they will transform your living.
