Frequently Asked Questions

What version of the Bible does Engage curriculum use?

Engage curriculum is designed to be completely version independent. We used many translations in developing the lessons and created questions and activities that do not require a particular translation to answer.

Why did you choose this order of study?

It is a MAJOR matter of importance to us that students learn the chronology of the Bible from beginning to end and how everything in the Bible fits into that chronology. We use the Wall Time Line constantly to teach kids the overall story and how the events and teachings they are learning fit into that story. Why then, after learning Genesis 1-26, do we switch to Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John and study the first part of Jesus’ earthly life and ministry before switching back to Genesis 27–Exodus 20? Why do we go back and forth instead of straight through? Here is the reason. If we simply went straight through the Bible, it would be a long time until we came to Jesus. We feel that studying Jesus every year is important. Of course, the whole Bible points to Jesus, and we refer to Jesus in every lesson whether we are in the Old or New Testament. But we want students to encounter Jesus’ life and teachings often and deeply.

What is your statement of faith?

We believe in the God of the Bible as revealed in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God and our guide for life. We believe what Paul said in his letter to Timothy: All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, so that God’s people may be thoroughly equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

We believe in the one true God who exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that God sent his Son Jesus to earth, born of a virgin, to live and die as the atoning sacrifice for all who would place their trust in him. We believe that Jesus rose from the dead and ascended to heaven where he sat down at the right hand of God the Father. We believe that he is present today, through the Holy Spirit, in his church, the body of Christ.

We work independently of any church group or denomination and make no attempt to teach opinions about issues of debate. Our goal is to present the Bible and the Bible alone. We believe that the prayerful study of God’s word helps people come to a true and lasting faith.

What about teens and adults?

We do not have Engage Curriculum for teens and adults (yet). However, teen and adult classes can follow the same Scripture plan as the kids. They can also make great use of the Wall Maps and Time Line to help with chronology and the Bible Book Summary Cards to help them learn the basic content of each Bible book.

Do you ship to countries outside the United States?

Absolutely. We can ship to nearly any location. If you are unable to order through our website for any reason, please call us at 1-479-229-0075 between 8am and 5pm CST. We’ll be glad to help you out.

What if our church has two Bible classes per week?

Good for you! Our original Bible Study Guide For All Ages curriculum was designed to help you and your kids study the Bible in even greater detail. The curriculum takes you through the Bible in 416 lessons and is sold in 26 lessons sets, twice as many as typical church curriculum. Just visit biblestudyguide.com.
