Why we think Bible study is important
The Bible is God's Word to us. The Bible is literally "God-breathed" (2 Timothy 3:16). In other words, it is God's very words to us.
God does not change and mankind's nature does not change; His Word is as relevant for us today as it was when it was written: "there is nothing new under the sun" (Ecclesiastes 1:9)
It shows us how we are to view God, our world and each other, how we are to conduct ourselves, and how we are to measure our ideas and activities. It contains all we need to know for salvation and godly living.
God—our good and gracious Creator—tells us what will bring us lasting joy. The Bible, is so important that Jesus said of it, "Man does not live on bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God" (Matthew 4:4).
Put simply, if we want to live life to the fullest, as God intended, we must read, listen to and heed God's written Word.
Why we would like you to join us
The Bible is a book that is not merely for reading. It is a book for studying so that it can be applied to our daily lives.
God's Word shows us just how much God loves us (Romans 5:6-8; John 3:16) and the Bible is filled with wisdom, instruction and guidance....not to enforce laws, rules and restrictions but to guide us, shepherd us, lovingly discipline us and give us life.
Proverbs (a book of wisdom) begins like this:
Proverbs 1:1-7 from the New International Version (NIV)
Purpose and Theme
1 The proverbs of Solomon son of David, king of Israel:
2 for gaining wisdom and instruction;
for understanding words of insight;
3 for receiving instruction in prudent behavior,
doing what is right and just and fair;
4 for giving prudence to those who are simple,
knowledge and discretion to the young—
5 let the wise listen and add to their learning,
and let the discerning get guidance—
6 for understanding proverbs and parables,
the sayings and riddles of the wise.
7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
