We study Scripture to know God, not just know about Him. God is a loving Father who has given His Word for His glory and our good. We challenge everyone to be in the Word everyday and read it relationally. Here are some resources to help guide or enhance your study of the Word.
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. 2 Timonthy 2:16-17
The Gospel of Mark: The Crown and Cross of Christ
Scripture is understood in community, so read to know God and bring your understandings to your House Church.
What then, brothers? When you come together, each one has a hymn, a lesson, a revelation, a tongue, or an interpretation. Let all things be done for building up.
