Learn the Basics Online
Welcome to Believers Bible Institute where you can learn Bible basics online and experience life as a believer in Jesus Christ. These outlines represent over thirty years of Pastors Tommy and Rachel’s personal ministry notes, now made available to equip you to know God and make Him known.
1. Become A Student of God’s Word
Make your Bible reading a priority. Put it first place in your life and everything else will fall into place. Select a location and time to study daily and be committed to it. Begin with twenty minutes daily.
2. Pray Before You Open Your Bible
As you open God’s Word, ask Him to open your eyes to see “wonderful things in His Word.” Ps. 119:18
3. Keep A Notebook and Highlighter Nearby
At the top of most outlines, you’ll find the foundational scriptures. Highlight those in your Bible. Read them several times. Try to memorize them. As you read, questions or thoughts may come to your mind. Write them down! They may be the beginning of a Spirit-led treasure hunt.
4. Depend on the Holy Spirit to Teach You
How exciting it is to have your own personal tutor, the Holy Spirit. If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior, He lives inside of you and talks inside of you. This inside voice will guide you into truth. Jn. 16:13
