The Bible

The Bible tells us the truth of who God is, and it is necessary for our spiritual growth. You can't grow without reading your Bible, and that's why we make a big deal out of reading it. If you want to know more about God, His promises, and where you fit in the story, reading the Bible is your next step.

3 Common Questions about Reading the Bible

We’ve all had that moment. You committed to reading the Bible, but you have no idea where to start. Maybe you got a few verses in, and you started tripping over words you’ve never seen, metaphors you didn’t understand, or lists that didn’t make sense. Maybe you’re wondering if you made a mistake, or you’re so overwhelmed you’re ready to give up.


The Bible Project

The Bible was written a long time ago, but we still believe "All Scripture is God-breathed" (2 Timothy 3:16). Sometimes it's confusing because we are reading the Bible in a time and culture that is different from the original recipients. That's why we encourage you to check out the Bible Project. It's not a replacement for asking the Lord for wisdom and reading your Bible at all, but it's a good resource to help you understand God's Word. 

Did you know you can also download a weekly reading plan that will help you read the entire Bible in a year? This is a perfect place to start if you're a new follower of Jesus or want to see how the whole Bible is a unified story pointing to Jesus. The PDF will also tell you what videos to watch to help you understand.
