You can’t have a close relationship with someone you never talk to. It’s impossible. God’s word – the Bible – is the primary way He speaks to us. And it’s the absolute best way to discover how to follow Jesus on a daily basis. If you want to know more about God’s promises, reading the Bible is your next step. Reading the Bible can seem like a huge task if you’ve never done it – the language, the length, not knowing where to start. We want to make it easy for you to get started and build a habit of reading God’s word.

Get a Bible

You can pick up a free Bible on Sundays by taking one from the pew if front of you.

Begin

We recommend starting in the New Testament, with Jesus – everything ultimately points to him. The book of Mark is quick and focuses on what Jesus did, while the book of John tells about what Jesus said – about the world and about himself.

Scripture

Open your Bible and take time reading allowing God to speak to you. Look for ONE verse that particularly stands out, and write it down.

Application

Personalize what you have read, by asking yourself how it applies to your life right now. Write how God is showing you this Scripture can apply to you today. How will you be different today because of what you have just read?
