Read the Bible

In the Bible we discover who God is and his heart for humanity. As we read the Bible we are drawn into the story of God’s grace as he reveals himself to us. The Bible isn’t a set of rules, but rather a unified story of God’s love that leads us to Jesus.

One of the best ways to start reading the Bible is to download the YouVersion Bible App and begin one of the reading plans. We suggest a few below. The Bible Project helps make the stories of the Bible easy to understand through short videos. Watch the video that corresponds to the book of the Bible you’re reading to help understand it better.

“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” -Hebrews 4:12
