Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.

Learning The Truth of God’s Word
“All scripture is God-breathed and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17) God gave us His Word so we can know Him. UBC Bible classes will provide instruction from specific books of the Bible and/or biblical themes, helping us to become both hearers and doers of the Word.
Equipping the Saints
