Want to grow in your faith?

We want to help

God wants to have a relationship with you that goes beyond an hour on Sunday. 
We've compiled some resources to help you read, listen, and study the Bible. 

Which version of the Bible should you read?

Check out this helpful article from the Chara Project

Original manuscripts for the Bible were written in Hebrew and Greek (which isn't exactly helpful to many of us now). The Bible is the most translated book in the world!

You'll find some translations focus on literal interpretations while others are focused on paraphrasing with readability being the most important factor. 

Spoiler alert: the New International Version (NIV) is the most widely-used translation.

Following the Way

40 Days of the Gospels

When you choose to follow someone, you're choosing to allow them to influence you in some way or another. 

If someone says they are a follower of Jesus, they're acknowledging that their life is impacted by Jesus' life & teachings. One of the best ways we can be shaped by Jesus is by reading the Bible-- specifically, the Gospels (the first 4 books of the New Testament that record Jesus' birth, life, death, and resurrection).
