Bible

Bible study is recognized at NVBS as a fundamental importance. It augments the study of English, history, geography, and science. Without knowledge of Biblical truth, a student cannot be considered educated. The Bible gives direction for this life and is the only hope for the life to come. No other book can so enrich the minds and hearts of men as “the Book of books.”

Knowledge of the Bible is one of the greatest educational assets any man can have in addition to the moral and spiritual values resulting from the study of the Bible. Character development is the most important work of a school. No other subject offered in the school affords the great opportunities for laying the foundation for Christian character.

The only version of the Bible used at NVBS is the King James Version.
