Study Bibles Gifted to CBC Students at First Chapel

Central Baptist College President Terry Kimbrow addressed the students on Wednesday, Aug. 23, at the first chapel of the academic year where He announced this semester’s chapel theme — “A Biblical Worldview.” He asked the students, “What is the definition of worldview? Do you know? Can you tell others what you believe about the world around you? Worldview is expressed as the lens through which you see the world.” He noted that his worldview had changed over his lifetime. “As I have grown in my relationship with God, my worldview has changed.” 

To introduce the fall chapel series, his message for chapel was, “The Foundation of Central Baptist College.” He briefly addressed the 12 articles of the Baptist Missionary Association of America Doctrinal Statement. He assured the students that, while the wording of the “Doctrinal Statement” has changed over the years, the basis for the beliefs cannot change. “It is,” he said, “based on the inerrant, unchanging, living Word of God.”

Along with unveiling the chapel theme, President Kimbrow presented each student with a new Worldview Study Bible. This Bible is published by Holman and includes the Christian Standard Version of the Bible, along with more than 130 essays by notable Christian scholars, center-column references and extensive worldview study notes. The gift was underwritten by an anonymous donor. He told the students, “This book will change your life if you let it!” He ended with a challenge — “Take care of it, cherish it, read it and obey it.”
