Our Bible Studies

Every Christian is to "Study to shew [him]self approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth" (2Ti 2:15)

We find the Q & A method of study very helpful. Questions focus the mind and demand earnest thinking to come to firm conclusions. This leads to growth in conviction through the truth of God's word. We always want to know the meaning of the text. We are interested in the sense of the words more than just the sound of them.

May the Lord bless you and give you great joy in the Lord as you use these studies to search the scriptures of truth.
