Foundations for the Christian Worldview EVP (BIBL300e)
1.0 (yearlong course)
(Credit for this course can be applied to the 1.0 credit graduation requirement for worldview studies.)
This one-year course will introduce supporting evidence for the Christian faith. During the first semester, students will develop an understanding of the contours of a worldview including components such as the nature of belief, faith, reason, truth, and the nature of a worldview in light of the Christian perspective. Students will be introduced to the Christian answers for creation vs. the theory of evolution, the existence of God, miracles, and the problem of evil. During the second semester, students will investigate supporting evidence for the reliability of the Bible, the testimony of the Gospels, as well as the historical life and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Due to the significant reading and writing required in this course, it is suggested for 11th and 12th grade students.

Sometimes it can feel like you have plenty of biblical information in your head, but still struggle to understand how it really fits in your life. Churches often do a great job teaching what is in the Bible, but sometimes they do not always tell how the Bible relates to a daily walk with God.
You may know what you believe and what you’ve been taught, but still ask questions like, What does this really mean for my day to day life? Why should I trust the Bible? Do science and faith have anything in common? What evidence is there that helps me know more about who Jesus really is? How do I respond to some of the questions that people ask about Christianity?
This class does not just cover what we believe; it covers why we believe and why those beliefs are so important. It will help you create a strong foundation in your beliefs on which to build your faith so you are better prepared to weather any storm of life. Join us as we shape our worldview more closely to Scripture together!
