Bible Beliefs

Get to know the Bible–and the God who gave it to us–better in 2020! Walk with us through this new series, and understand how God speaks to us, what His word reveals about Himself and us, and how we can better understand it. “God has breathed out his Word (Hebrews 4:12); he reveals his power through it (Matthew 22:29); and he shows us his Son, to whom all Scripture points (Luke 24:27). You’ll know God better as you enjoy the whole of his perfect Word” (excerpted from Kristen Wetherall, “17 Benefits of Reading the Entire Bible”).
