The learning philosophy of the group is summarized in three points: (1) The Nehemiah 8 approach to the study of the scriptures: a communal reading and understanding of the scriptures have the power to change lives. (2) A participatory Approach: Everyone has the potential to be a channel of the Holy Spirit as we study the word of God together. (3) Personal Application: A dedicated study of the broader concepts of the text with personal application, drawn by the participants.
