Know God

One of our purposes as a church is to help people know God. We believe our ability to know God comes through the Bible.  Therefore, one of our highest priorities is to be a church where the word of God is preached.

When we choose an atmosphere where the Word of God is delighted in – our lives will be fruitful and blessed. (Psalm 1:1-3)

This is no ordinary book.

The Word of God is a love story – The Bible is more than a how-to book. It is the announcement and revelation of what the love of God has done. It’s the story of God reaching out to redeem and restore mankind.

The Word of God is spiritual food – There are many food metaphors for the Bible. It is described as milk (1 Peter 2:2), meat (Hebrews 5:12-14), bread (Matthew 4:4) and honey (Psalm 19:7-10.)  We find spiritual nourishment for our faith in every promise, principle, theme and story of the Bible.

The Word of God is a guide – In a world of self-help and self-navigation, the Bible provides enduring guidance. (Psalm 119:105)

The Word of God comforts – In times of pain and hardship we find comfort in the Bible. (Psalm 119:50)

The Word of God shapes – This book is alive and active! (Hebrews 4:12) It convicts us of attitudes and thoughts that need to change. It teaches us to do what is right. (2 Timothy 3:16)

The Word of God builds – The Bible not only helps us build a vibrant life; it is the solid foundation on which we build. (Matthew 7:24-27)

The Word of God is like a sword – We have a weapon in the Word of God that we can use to defeat the enemy of our soul. (Ephesians 6:17) With every promise we find in the Bible, we become more skillful at handling this weapon.

The Word of God is like a mirror – Regardless of how you feel or what you currently believe about yourself, in the Word of God you’ll find the truest reflection of who you are. (James 1:22-25)
