ABC is where faith became real to me. I came to ABC as a believer in Christ and I left as a follower of Him.
I learned how to study the Bible for myself and I learned how to think critically in the theological realm. ABC got me out of my own spiritual tunnel vision and helped me to judge things biblically rather than just through tradition or personal experience.
The most valuable experience I’ve had during my time attending ABC was three years ago when I had lost someone to suicide. Everyone encircled me in this time, encouraged, and kept me going. I was overwhelmed with affection. I wanted to give up and go home because I was mad at God, but the student body and faculty was there to shower me with the love of God and reminded me that God wasn’t the cause of the situation, they shared with me that God is all-powerful; He is still in control and still continues to show His grace. Today, I am thankful for that. Because if it were in a different situation, I probably would have given up.
