Bible Reading

God invites us to let the scriptures renew our minds, let our hearts connect with God and conform us into the image of Christ.

our dream

For those inside and outside of our church community to connect with God, to meet Jesus and interact with who He is and how He seeks to love them.

We encourage you to spend time each day in God’s Word, to see the redemptive plan of God and the character and beauty of Christ so we can learn to enjoy Christ. As we enjoy and love God, we begin to live like Him, which is the essence of being on mission for Him.

Ephesians 6:19

Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel

Fearless Word Devotion

BIBLE STUDY METHOD

Grow closer to God and act on His direction. 

Getting the Most out of Reading Your Bible — Studying Scripture can feel like a daunting task. This is where a simple practice going through a Bible passage can be tremendously helpful. The ultimate goal for interacting with Scripture is not only to read it, but to also to understand it and apply it. It’s not just about getting into God’s Word, it’s about God’s Word getting into you. Here is a simple method we recommend.

Bible Study Method

What it Says — After you have read the passage, pray for guidance and paraphrase it. As you think of different ways to put into words what you’ve read, the Holy Spirit will begin to guide you to a deeper understanding.

What it Means — Now dig deep and uncover the full meaning of the text. Go through the passage slowly and examine specific words (words you don’t understand or intrigue you). Ask specific questions of the text (Why did Jesus say that? Who is the audience this was originally written to?) A Study Bible (Bible with commentary) or a study guide (like we are providing here) will help.

What I’ll Do — This is probably the most important (though difficult) part of your study. Come up with a specific application, (i.e. something you are going to do today, a new thought you are going to focus on throughout the day, a prayer you are going to pray now and then again before bedtime).
