Persons interested in better serving God and improving their knowledge and understanding of His Word will have the opportunity to do so when the Believer's Institute For Biblical Studies offers classes this Winter at Welcome Baptist Church.

The Believer's Institute was founded in 1969 as a correspondence study under the direction of Dr. Edward McAbee. On March 6, 2000 the first on-campus classes were held in Gaffney, S.C. with a Bachelor of Biblical Studies degree being offered. In the Winter semester of 2006, the Master of Biblical Studies program was opened for those who want to further their education. In 2013, the institute was moved from Gaffney to Welcome Baptist Church at 206 Nichols Avenue, Union.

The Spring Semester begins March 27, 2017. The courses offered will be:

• Harmony of the Gospels I

• Creation Science

• 1st & 2nd Timothy

* You are welcome to sit in a few weeks before you pay anything to attend.

* Come and join us as we study God's Word.
