SOUTH POINT— The emphasis will be on education; the lessons will come from a distinguished teacher.

Tri-State Baptist Temple in South Point will have its first-ever Bible conference next week.

“The main focus is on the teaching and preaching of the Bible,” the Rev. Tim Jenkins, pastor of Tri-State Baptist Temple, said. “We focus on that as we believe the Bible is what builds and grows us to be the people God wants us to be.”

The speaker for the week-long event will be Dr. Myron Guiler, founder and president of Marietta Bible College. Guiler began the college as a way to train future leaders of the church. Unlike other Bible colleges, the one in Marietta offers free tuition and board. It is operated entirely through donations from churches and individuals. Many of its students come from foreign countries, Jenkins said.

On Friday night, the Marietta Bible College Choir will perform.

The conference is at 6 p.m. Sunday and then 7 p.m. each evening Monday-Friday.

Jenkins said anyone who wishes to know more about the Bible is welcome to come.

“We believe the Bible is God’s word and has his most important message to anyone can hear,” Jenkins said. “God’s word is powerful. We encourage people and families to put their life under his influence.”

The church is located at 1300 County Road 60.
