Theology @ 9 gives members a weekly opportunity to get to know more about their Creator who eternally exists as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These hour-long classes are ongoing and topical in nature. Lessons are gleaned from and undergirded by Holy Scripture. Participants grow in their knowledge of God and as a result, experience the joy of knowing him better as they are better prepared to make him known. Of note, most of our Theology @ 9 classes parallel the core seminars offered at Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington DC. To review CHBC’s core seminars see http://www.capitolhillbaptist.org/resources/core-seminars/.

ADULTS during 9am Bible Study
New Theo@9 Classes begab 07/02/2017 You may jin in at anytime, but the sooner, the better!!Suffering: Fighting for Faith in Trial - How can God be both good and sovereign—and yet have allowed these things to happen to me? The Christian life is caught up in this tension—between our experience and its apparent conflict with God’s character as claimed in the Bible. We'll establish a Biblical framework for suffering and in the weeks that follow, we’ll apply that framework. Ultimately, our goal is ambitious: suffering as witness. Not just a class on surviving, but a class to prepare us to use suffering to joyfully bring honor and glory to our king in a way that is dramatically compelling to those around us. Taught by Davis Gooding in Library.Unity & Diversity - Being a Christian is more fundamental to your identity than your family, your ethnicity, your job, your nationality, your sexuality, your personality—or any other way this world defines identity. And so the unity you share with every other Christian is more profound than any other conceivable bond. That means that wherever the gospel exists, diversity should exist too since all types of people can be saved. Diversity is a natural outgrowth of the gospel. 7-week Course taught by Barry Taylor in room #27.Guidance – (Begins Aug. 20th) -What does the Bible say about decision-making? The world and even Christians have developed some unbiblical ideas about how God guides our decisions - And yet the Scriptures give us some amazing truths about how God does guide us. We'll be looking at Anxious or Restful decisions, God's Sovereignty, God's Will and how we can apply these truths to our decision making process. 6-week Course taught by Barry Taylor in room #27.Old Testament Overview – Part 2 – Why study the Old Testament? First, because the Old Testament reveals the character of God in a way that the New Testament does not and secondly, the Old Testament tells us about Jesus. This is being taught by Joel Bradberry and meets in room #28.
