Spiritual Emphasis

A high premium is placed on the spiritual life of the student. At Penn View Bible Institute we are convinced that the kind of relationship with the Lord that truly meets human needs is realized neither automatically nor fortuitously. Therefore, the spiritual life must be cultivated. Earnest Christians have learned that the most effective way of doing this is by utilizing the means of grace: personal Bible study, prayer, and attendance at public worship. The prospective student should plan to institute, if he has not already done so, a time for daily devotions. Ideally, the time should be the same each day in order to promote a consistent Christian life. Many have found that the early morning, prior to beginning the day's activities, is the best.
