Your host, Bruce C. Coffin, Jr.
This site is focused on the New Believer, a newly saved follower of the Lord Jesus Christ. On this site I desire to provide what I wish I had known when I was saved. You will find foundational Bible studies that are intended to give direction and support for your new life in Christ.
You may ask, “What makes you think you are qualified to teach me?”
Basically, I am qualified because I have been saved for over fifty-years. During that time, I have learned almost everything the hard way — making many mistakes, misunderstanding, failing to do the right thing in the right way, etc. Out of each difficulty and failure, by the Grace of God, the Bible, and the Holy Spirit, I have been delivered and learned an important lesson.
I want you, the new believer, to grow faster and with less pain than I did. I am old now, and I have learned many things about the Christian life. Think of me as your old Uncle Bruce who is ready to give advice and support. Who has empathy for you and your difficulties because he has been there, done that, bought the t-shirt, the hat, and the souvenir coffee mug.
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” —-Matthew 11:28-30 ESV*
Rest for your soul, an easy yoke and a light burden is promised to you. If you are lacking any of these things, it is time to meet with Uncle Bruce.
You probably have a lot of questions about me and my doctrinal beliefs. I will answer some of those questions on the About Bruce page.
Once again, welcome to Bruce’s Bible Study. Use the menu to get around. I am in the process of updating the site, so expect some construction and dust. God bless you and may He lead to safe pasture.
