ACSI National Bible Quiz

As Christians, we firmly believe that the Bible is the foundation of our existence and the basis of our faith.  As Christian educators, we encourage our students to saturate themselves with godly influence by reading the Bible, meditating on the Holy Scriptures, and living out the Word of God in their daily lives.  As a unified body of Christian schools, we design an exciting Bible Quiz program to stimulate the youth to read God’s Word with the prayer that they will eventually seek to place the Word of God in their hearts, minds, and lives through the medium of healthy competition.  We pray that the many hours that they will spend in the focused study of the Word of God, we pray that they will see that the ancient text of the Holy Scripture is fun, relevant, exciting, and meaningful.
