What is BGI?

Bellefontaine Grace is on a mission to learn it, live it and give it. The “it” being the Gospel as revealed in the Bible. This mission is the pathway of developing as a disciple of Christ Jesus. Beginning with "learn it" the goal is to continue on to "live" out the truths of the Gospel in our homes and communities and then to "give" out the Gospel in serving and sharing the Gospel truths with others, resulting in greater worship of God. We are giving you the opportunity to increase the "learn it" in your life by offering  these Bible study classes.

How BGI works...

Each class will meet weekly for 6-8 weeks. There may be a small cost for study materials that can be covered if you are unable to afford the cost. There will also be assignments, such as reading, to prepare for each class that will increase the long term benefits of the class. 


Saturdays at 9am.

Gain “a foundational grasp of the most important book ever written” by taking the class, 30 Days to Understanding the Bible. This is a class that will help you learn the Bible’s basic structure, timeline and message. This class will use the Max Anders book “30 Days to Understanding the Bible: Unlock the Scriptures in 15 Minutes a Day” as a guide. This is a class that is inviting to someone new to studying the Bible as well as a good refresher for someone more familiar with it. You will be introduced to the major people, places and events found in the Bible. You will discover the overall message of the Scripture as you learn about the ten Great Subjects of the Bible. A small amount of daily reading will be necessary as well as taking self-tests throughout the text as helpful reviews. The instructor for this class is David Davis.

RESET: A life-changing process that works.

Mondays 6:30pm. 

Have you experienced the frustration of knowing people who claim to be Christians, but their lives aren't that much different from non-Christians? Have you experienced being one of these people yourself? Many Christians believe the only way to change is to grit our teeth, strengthen our resolve, do more, work harder, and rise above the onslaught of temptation. But in reality, we have a far better weapon in our struggle with sin than the kind of willpower mantras associated with diet and exercise. This weapon is not saying "no" to sin but saying "yes" to God. Join in on the journey of discipleship and sanctification and discover the heart of God that changes how a person loves and thinks and acts. The instructor for this class is Kohltin Hoeppner.
