As you look for the very best Vacation Bible School materials for the children of your church and community, perhaps one of the biggest questions that you have is, “What does the author believe?

This is a very important question, of course, because Vacation Bible School is all about teaching children the Bible in order to lead them to a closer (or a new!) relationship with Jesus.

You want to teach the children the truth.  That is a much easier task when you do not find yourself weeding through your Vacation Bible School materials looking for something usable, constantly worried about encountering some untruth.

It is good to be on guard.  We must test everything by the Word of God, and I want you to feel confident that I have spent a lot of time and prayer doing just that.

If you have spent much time on the Hasten Home blog, you have an idea where I am coming from, and you have an idea of what I believe and how I share those beliefs.  But just in case you would like a basic outline of what I believe so that you can feel confident that Hasten Home is the very best choice for your Vacation Bible School materials, I have done my best to lay that out here for you.

In the very possible case that a doctrine I have shared here differs from what you personally believe, please, please, prayerfully take a moment to follow the links to the examples of supporting Scriptures and re-evaluate your stance on the subject.  (Also see the “P.S.” at the end of this page.)

Plus, feel free to send me a note if you have any questions.  I will do my best to answer them.

If, after prayerfully studying it out, you still believe that my position is inconsistent with the Bible, please share with me what you have found.

If you feel I have left out some key Bible doctrine, please contact me and I will consider adding it to the list.  This is not necessarily meant to be an all-inclusive list—I’d have to write a book for that!—but I do hope you find it useful and reassuring that you are making the right decision for your children by choosing Hasten Home.

Here we go!

Hasten Home, friend!

P.S. A lot of these topics can be a little confusing when you just take one or two Bible verses on the subject.  If you are looking for some great, in-depth Bible studies, I highly recommend Amazing Facts!  You might also like to browse Bible topics for yourself at
