Bible Study

A basic principle of the Reformation is that Holy Scripture is the "rule of faith and life." Scripture provides the knowledge of what is necessary for the glory of God and for human faith, life and salvation.  Scripture is a record of God and God's way with humanity and the world.


Seven Guidelines for Interpreting Scripture

  1. Rule of Christ:  Recognize that Jesus Christ, the Redeemer, is the enter of Scripture.
  2. Rule of Text:  Let the focus be on the plain text of Scripture.
  3. Rule of the Holy Spirit:  Depend upon the guidance of the Holy Spirit in interpreting and applying God's message.
  4. Rule of Faith:  Be guided by the doctrinal consensus of the church, which is the "rule of faith."
  5. Rule of Love:  Let all interpretations be in accord with the "rule of love."
  6. Rule of Scholarship:  Remember that interpretation of the Bible requires earnest study.
  7. Rule of Scripture:  Seek to interpret a particular passage of the Bible in light of the entire Bible.

These seven principles taken together provide us with a wholesome set of guidelines for interpreting the Bible.  This is our Reformed tradition at work:  'reformed and always reforming."  That is , no interpretation, whether old or new, is to be accepted as the final word, but is always subject to possible revision and correction as a result of further study of Scripture and the leading of the Holy Spirit.


Various Bible Studies are held during the year.
