Bible Reading Plan

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

What those inside and outside of our church community need is 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.

BIBLE STUDY METHOD

BIBLE STUDY METHOD 

Studying Scripture can feel like a daunting task. Not all of us have studied Greek or Hebrew. Few of us have Bible college or seminary degrees. This is where a helpful tool for understanding Scripture can become tremendously helpful. There are many methods that you can use to understand and apply Scripture, but here’s a tool we use and teach:

Pray: Ask God to bless your time in His Word by coming near and using this time to develop your relationship with Him. (Psalm 86:12a “Teach me your way, LORD, that I may rely on your faithfulness.”)

Read: Read the text through twice. First to orient yourself to the text, then to begin the work of understanding it. Look at surrounding verses, look for patterns and identify key themes.

Listen: Confident in God’s work to teach you through His Word, review your observations and prayerfully ask God what He is teaching you or asking of you.

Do: Specifically determine how you’ll demonstrate and/or declare what you’ve learned. Share with your family, a friend or your Life Group what you’re aiming to do in response to what you’ve learned.

Review: Ask yourself – or maybe allow someone you trust to ask: “Did you do what you set out to do?” If so, “How’d it go?” If not, “Why not?”
