This Bible study begins a study of Daniel Thursday, Jan. 10, 9:30 a.m., at the IBC Worship Center Fellowship Hall. “Threatened with death, Daniel stuck to his guns and refused to adopt a pagan lifestyle. His worldview had God at the center and he lived it out even under extreme pressure to change.”
Learn to adopt a biblical worldview and adhere to it even when it’s not the norm.”
