Swordlight Is A Comprehensive Bible Study Program Of Lighthouse Evangelism
Swordlight is a comprehensive, systematic Bible Study Program that will help you to study God's Word. All the books of the Bible will be covered in this 8-year study program. This program is designed to help you master the contents of the Bible. Study questions are oriented to stimulate you academically and also direct you toward personal applications.

The format of Swordlight consists of daily homework and a weekly meeting. The weekly meeting is divided into two parts, namely small group discussion and a group lecture.

The daily homework enables you to contribute during the discussion session. A facilitator will help to conduct the small group discussion. The class concludes with a lecture on the relevant subjects by the instructor.

Each module will last a year. There are four 10-week terms in each module with a break in between. Swordlight classes coincide with the government school terms. This way, it allows you to spend time with your family during the school holidays.

This modular system allows you to join the program at any time. If you are desirous to have an in-depth knowledge of the whole Bible, you may call the church for further enquiries.
