We hope that you will join us in learning and teaching the Bible to anyone, anywhere in the world who desires to learn more about the Bible. The site contains resources, articles, classes, news, and other materials in a variety of topics related to biblical studies. These resources are focused on:

- Being and becoming a person whose character is formed and transformed by the Bible.
- Doing. Acting on what you are learning and becoming in such as way as to transform the world around you by simply being who you are...and who you are becoming as you put into practice the things you are learning.
"My friends, we should not all try to become teachers. In fact, teachers will be judged more strictly than others. All of us do many wrong things. But if you can control your tongue, you are mature and able to control your whole body.
By putting a bit into the mouth of a horse, we can turn the horse in different directions. It takes strong winds to move a large sailing ship, but the captain uses only a small rudder to make it go in any direction. Our tongues are small too, and yet they brag about big things."
James 3:1-5a Contemporary English Version
