Memakai metode deskriptif-analitis, penulis memaparkan konsep belajar dalam melalui pendekatan studi Alkitab dengan ilmu-ilmu psikologi sebagai pendukung. Hasil studi ini di dapatkan informasi bahwa 1) Pendidikan Kristen Berbeda dengan pendidikan sekuler yang bercorak humanistik dan naturalistic. 2) Pendidikan Kristen berkonsentrasi pada tugas memahami dan menghayati serta mengkomunikasikan penyataan Allah (God’s revelation) di dalam Alkitab dan di dalam Yesus Kristus. 3) dari studi Alkitab dikemukakan bahwa belajar adalah bagian dari hakikat manusia dan tuntutan dasariah dari Allah untuk mengenal Dia sebagai Tuhan Pencipta dan Penebus umat manusia. 4) Guna membimbing gereja berkembang dalam kehidupan yang dinamis secara spritual, kehadiran gereja yang bersedia belajar sangat diperlukan. Warga jemaat perlu disadarkan bahwa untuk memelihara kadar spiritualitas yang tetap segar, orang percaya senantiasa memerlukan pembelajaran yang jujur, sehat dan benar.

This paper aims to describe the importance of learning in relation to the discipling duties of the church and interpret it as an urgent task. Using a descriptive-analytic method, the author explains concepts learned through a Bible study approach and includes discussion on psychology as a supplement. The results of this study in gathering information are that 1) Christian Education is unlike secular education that is inclined toward humanistic and naturalistic thinking. 2) Christian Education is concentrated on the task of understanding and appreciating along with communicating the revelation of God (God's revelation) in the Bible and in Jesus Christ. 3) From studying the Bible it can be argued that learning is part of human nature and the basic demands of God to know Him as God the Creator and Redeemer of mankind. 4) In order to guide the church in developing spiritually dynamic lives, the presence of churches who are willing to learn is very much needed. The congregation needs to be made aware that to maintain levels of spirituality that will remain fresh and new, believers will continuously need learning that is honest, wholesome and true.
