Nav Bible Study groups meet once a week all over campus
and are led by student leaders and staff. We believe the
Bible is God’s revelation to mankind about Himself and His
design for life. This belief leads us to take studying the Bible
seriously. Please come join us as we grow in our
understanding of God and His word.
This fall, freshmen will be doing a study
called Roots, focusing in on the foundations of
walking with Jesus and enjoying the vibrant life He
promises; sophomores will be doing a study called The
Insider which challenges us to live out our faith and cultivate
authentic friendships with others who don’t yet know Jesus
– friendships in which spirituality can be discussed and
Jesus’ claims can be investigated in natural and inviting
ways; juniors will be doing a study called Soul which
focuses on our identity and emotions. The senior Bible
study is TBD. Bible study books will be available for
purchase from a group leader or at Nav Night.
Why do we study the Bible?
- To know God. We don’t want to simply know about God and miss the true joy of life, knowing Him personally and intimately. Jesus told us that “this is eternal life: to Know the one true God, and Jesus Christ, whom he sent.” (John 17:3)
- To apply it to our lives. James reminds us to “be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving ourselves.” (James 1:22). As we come to the Bible and seek to know God, we expect him to challenge the way we think, believe, live, and relate.
- To grow in community. Why go it alone? Nav Bible Study groups offer authentic and deep fellowship with other students. We learn from each other’s observations and experiences. We challenge each other to grow and keep each other accountable.
- To become better students of the Bible. We want to be careful to rightly handle the word of God. Many people have mis-used the Bible by ignoring context and the author’s intended meaning. Nav studies are aimed at learning skills that will help you study and apply the Bible for life.
