Read Your Bible

The single most important element of growing as a believer in Christ is reading your Bible every day. This is supported both by scripture itself (“It is written: Man must not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:4), but also by research. We are committed to being a Bible-reading church. Along with Bible reading, there are many other spiritual disciplines that grow out of it that can help you grow in your relationship with God. Some of these include Scripture memorization, meditation and prayer.

To help make it simpler for you to faithfully read the Bible, we recommend a site like or their app, YouVersion. They offer a number of Bible reading plans that help simplify the process of daily Bible reading for you. If you want to start with something even simpler than that, a good place to start would be reading through Matthew, Mark, Luke or John. Many people like to begin with John.
