 Catechism
Questions and Answers

What everyone should know about the Bible should be obvious.

But, it is not.

Catechism should always be based on the unshakeable rock of Holy Scripture. This Bible Study provides "easy to understand" lesson plans and bible verses in a question and answer format. That's literally what the word catechism means.

Setting the rules...

It is useless to discuss any doctrine taught in the Bible until we acknowledge that the Bible is the final court of appeal. It is only from this foundational truth that we can advance to the conquest of all truth...
