Join host Dr. Dale Meyer as he surveys government in history, the character of the United States as a nation, and the Christian's role as a citizen of any country.

As God's written Word, the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments are the source of His revelation to man. This Bible study will survey the historical development, textual transmission, and publication history of the Bible as it has come down to us through the centuries. With special emphasis on God's divine activity through the Spirit-inspired authors of the Old and New Testaments, this study will show how the Bible is His book, His Word-revealed to man that they might know the way of salvation as revealed by the prophets and made real in the flesh through the life, death, and resurrection of God's son, Jesus Christ.

This men's Bible study aims to weave two passions into one. The first is a passion for the game of baseball-America's time-honored pastime. The second is a passion for growing into the husband, father, and spiritual leaders God has called us to be. 

It is our prayer this Men's NetWork Bible study will awaken men to consider their God-given callings as husbands, as fathers, or, as the case may be, as single men, who will one day be leading their own families for God. 

The purpose of this study is to give you the opportunity to discuss your various roles with other men, enjoy some baseball moments, relive your younger years, and prepare you to rejoice in the forgiveness and fresh start God gives you in Christ each and every day. The church and family are in desperate need of faithful and dedicated men who are willing to step up to the proverbial plate and grow into the leaders God has fashioned them to be-even as they serve their families and promote the work of His Kingdom.

Who Am I? What Am I Doing Here?

The universe, God's will, speaking the Christ story, true human fulfillment, God's Law, the point of it all-these are some of the ideas in Pastor Joel Biermann's explorative video Bible study. In six sessions, he takes us from the beginning to that place where, on the Last Day, we find our greatest realization as humans. 

It's essentially about us being God's creatures, redeemed by Christ and restored through faith. Our role is to fulfill God's place for us within His creation. 

God's Law involves the ordering and function of His creation throughout the universe. Our sin perverts our grasp and understanding of God's will for His creation. 

Accepting that God is in charge in all things is not a popular idea among modern man. God's purposes will be accomplished and His creatures thrive best when living coherently within His design.

We are all here to do what God put us here to do. Though our vocations are many, church work does not supersede family responsibilities and other necessary obligations. We fit into God's creation and His scheme of things, not vice versa. 

God's law is good, His will for His people is that they speak the Gospel message and share the life of Jesus Christ with others. Proclamation is paramount, not optional.

In this Bible study, Pastor Steve Misch considers theories of evolution, the plausibility of random chance, man's spiritual and physical nature, and how God's creation and salvation are intrinsically linked in the person of Jesus Christ.

Toys are the things that fill our lives. Most guys are pros in the fine art of stockpiling. Whether it's motorcycles or medals, our stuff isn't going with us when we finally "pack it up" on our last day, so getting our priorities right according to God's Word is good for us and our families.
