The Kingsway Baptist Bible School
This online Bible School came about, as leading from the Lord, to contribute to the modern challenge of the serious lack of Bible training among modern believers. The testimony to this lack of Bible training is the astounding way that strong personalities are misleading masses of people in ‘churches’ today. Getting them to believe the most unbelievable things! I’m serious when I say that many, otherwise intelligent people, turn their brains off when entering a church building. It’s as if that anything goes when it comes to the spiritual. That ‘normal logic’ does not work, and is not required for Christian Faith. This is so, so wrong!
Isaiah 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
Acts 17:2 And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures,
I’ve been a Christian for about 37 years (2015), and an ordained pastor for about 25 years. The reason I’m telling you this is because I have, like others, seen an incredible shift in what Bible Christianity was when I first got saved, to what is commonly offered / presented in the same Christian churches today. In so many cases it’s not the same faith!
What has helped me stay in the same faith as when I started 37 years ago. Has been a God given conviction that my Father be pleased with what He finds in my life; in my inner thoughts and attitude, and in my daily walk with Him. This conviction has given me a very high value in learning, from the Bible, all I can about Who and What God is. And what His will is for me as an individual. I care what the Lord thinks of me when He looks at me! It’s very important to me what He sees and thinks!
At this time in my walk and ministry, the Lord has laid it in my heart to be useful to Him. In providing believers with the means of studying the old historic Faith. The Faith that the Lord calls all of His children today to still live by before Him. This I believe that He has led me to do through an online Bible School. A Bible School that offers doctrinal teaching in a unique way…
- Instead of the studies being in one long study that the student must work through (nothing wrong with those who offer their lessons like that). The Kingsway lessons are broken up into daily portions. This way, God willing, they will – by the time the whole course is completed – have got into the godly habit of daily studying the Bible.
- The other unique thing about the Kingsway studies is that they are not only the important study of Christian doctrine, but they also address the practical outliving of doctrine. The doctrines of the Christian Faith are not only for our right understanding / belief, but also for shaping our daily walk with the Lord.
And so, Kingsway Baptist Bible School offers Bible education:
- On the website where each lesson is broken up into daily portions for anyone to read, study and meditate through.
- There is also an offer to email or Whatsapp the daily portions through to students. (Click here to apply)
- And there is also the entire lessons available for download for those who prefer the usual full study in one format.
What Really Works With God?
In order to not have our faith as only superstition in our heads, and therefore not a living reality between us and the Lord, we have to approach the Christian Faith His way. We are living in times when there is a well above average number of church members, and church attendants, that are woefully ignorant of the Christian Faith as revealed in the Bible. Most seem satisfied to blindly trust their spiritual leader/s in the local church. Blindly trusting that they are being taught the Christian Faith correctly, blindly believing that their souls have been saved, and blindly believing that their walk with the Lord is reasonably good compared with others that they know, and therefore (hopefully) acceptable to the Lord.
So many seem to be unbelievably casual with their eternal destinies! One would not think that, after this very short life in this world, that we are all going to spend eternity either with the Lord, or separated from Him in the lake of fire, without hope forever!
The Lord knowing all there is about to know about each of us as individuals, and just what type of response to Him we each give, gives ample warning of most people’s inadequate faith. Consider a few of such warnings …
To “Many” leaders and very active people in local churches on the day of Judgment:
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
To the religious …
23 Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them,
24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.
To our world’s population …
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait [NARROW AND DIFFICULT] is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
See also Matthew 13 where out of the great multitudes that gather to enthusiastically see, and listen to the Lord Jesus, only His immediate disciples’ hearts and minds were open and receptive to the Lord as He required. (v11-16 gives the Lord’s view of those crowding to see Him.)
These are frightening warnings! Warnings from the Lord Himself! This is what He sees when He examines our hearts and minds! And it will be the Lord Who judges who are really His children and who aren’t! The God of the Bible is not the god of so many modern churches who loves with a forgiving, warm, fuzzy love, and who ignores sinful, self-centered life styles. The God of the Bible loves us with a love that we simply cannot comprehend it is so powerful, but Who also is going to burn people in a lake of fire forever for not believing AS He demands!
When believing in Christ for our salvation we MUST have changed our hearts and minds towards Almighty God. Paul called this changed mind towards God when believing, “repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.” Acts 20:21. Before a lost soul is saved, or born again, they have lived as masters of their own lives. They denied God’s authority over them, they resisted Him. And before the Lord will save a soul, we have to repent of our rebellious attitude toward Him and His authority over us! We MUST change our attitude towards Him! It is hopeless to attempt to get to Heaven by saying to the Lord that you believe in His Son, when the Lord can see in your heart and mind that you are still going to live as master of your own life! He will not save a soul that He cannot command! This is the reason why He gave so many warnings about masses of religious people that never get saved! And that only a minority actually get saved, or born again!
Kingsway Bible School is dedicated to presenting the Bible revealed Christian faith. Which is very different to most modern approaches to Christianity. Only the Bible reveals to us what Christianity is. So called modern, direct revelation from God is completely rejected. If it is not in the Bible then it is not Christianity! It is not the Christianity that Almighty God gave to save our souls and lead us into a life with Him here and now before Heaven!
The Bible School lessons guide the earnest student in examining the Scriptures, to discover just what life with the Lord is. And what the real Faith is that brings each child of God to such personal reality with the Him, that they have God’s hope as an anchor to their souls!
Today’s church attenders’ happiness is dependent on life going well – just like the person who hates God. And when life gets challenging, let alone when things really, really get tough, their ‘faith’ does not carry them through. Either being weak, and immature, or not being the real thing.
You are invited to either examine the lessons on the website as found under Bible School, or to freely download the Bible School lessons at the end of each study for The Spiritual Life studies. For the Integrity lessons I’ve started to add the MS Word files for each mini study. Only the first subject under Integrity has the MS Word files available for downloading at this time. If you would like the MS Word files for the other please send me an email requesting those files, and I’ll email them to you with pleasure. You can simply fill in the form on the Contacts page to get those files. The goal in their preparation, being to guide people in these last days to carefully, and responsibly examine the Scriptures regarding salvation, as well as the daily, practical Spiritual life.
The studies are all divided into daily short studies so that the serious student can do a short, but meaningful, Bible study each day. (Or one short study over two days.) The plan being that the student of God’s Word will examine the foundation truths of the Christian Faith systematically, to the end that they can be led by the Holy Spirit to discover God’s Truth in all essential matters (Romans 8:14). So that their faith is real and acknowledged by Almighty God. Giving them true life with God in this world – and actually giving them hope from God as an anchor to their souls. Keeping their hearts and minds in perfect peace no matter what their life’s circumstances are. And then being led by the Holy Spirit into the deeper life with Him, and usefulness to Him while still in this world.
The Bible School primarily focuses on the basic foundational Truths everyone MUST have in order to have a life with God. In time more and more lessons will continually be added, providing more and more studies dealing with deeper truths regarding the spiritual life of a child of God. At present, assisting people to find Biblical salvation, and then establishing a solid foundation with the Lord is most important.
