An American History & Government Seminar
Bridgeway Christian Church
Rocklin, CA

If you are interested in learning more about the True and Miraculous events which led to the founding of the United States —


Over 3,000 years ago ancient Israel had no king but the God of the Bible. They rejected His sovereignty and sought a king like their neighbors.


Our nation is the only nation in all the history of nations which was founded by a free people choosing to have no sovereign but the God of the Bible.

Our nation is the only nation consciously and purposely founded upon Biblical principles among all the nations in the history of nations.

Our nation is thus the only nation presented to God for His demonstration of the fruit of such principles. Those fruit dwarfed that of any other Civil Government System in the history of nations.

Our nation has drifted from the principles up on which it was founded and her citizens have all but given up the “dominion” they once held over their government.

We have forgotten our “roots” and worse, we have thus permitted ourselves and our children to believe lies regarding our nation’s founding.

Like individuals in such situations, our nation must be “born again.” Our nation, once a nation under God, must renew her commitment.

That requires that WE learn again the principles upon which our nation was founded. Her citizens must once more understand Christian Self-Government.

A major “AMERICAN HISTORY & GOVERNMENT STUDY SEMINAR” has been scheduled. This seminar will be led by outstanding individuals in the field of American Christian History and Biblical Principles of Government. The unique character and quality of these seminars has gained them a national reputation for excellence.

ACH will hold the TBA seminar in Rocklin, California (Sacramento area).

Seminar participants will be expected to commit themselves to four days of intensive study from 9 to 9. Your schedule will include lectures, directed study, breaks, and refreshment activities.

“Wisdom” is the word assigned to each of the three New Testament Greek words: sophis, phonesis, sunesis.

Translated into general meanings, one gets “bigpicture, practics, mechanics.”

The faculty members are master teachers, each gifted in one of these three fields.

The curriculum is built upon seven Biblical principles, each approached in turn from these three viewpoints.

The material used to illustrate these principles is that which God used to inspire those who founded our nation.
