Event description


The Word of God, which is contained in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, is the only rule to direct us how we may glorify and enjoy God. The Scriptures principally teach what man is to believe concerning God, and what duty God requires of man. (Westminster Shorter Catechism questions 2 & 3) Of all the books of the bible where the family of God is expounded upon the book of Proverbs yields 8 major themes which culminate in the ultimate goals of 1) Faith in Jesus Christ, 2) Christian Character, & 3) Wisdom in Living according to God’s Law. Those 8 major themes are:

  1. The Principle of the Tongue and the Truth

  5. The Principle of Receiving Reproof and Respecting Authority
  6. The Principle of Trusting God
