  • HOW DO I READ THE BIBLE?

    Feel free to use the following tools to help you in your study of the Bible, God's Holy Word. Feel free to ask any of our Pastor's for further guidance.
     
    We recommend that you use a high quality study Bible such as the Life Application Bible because it provides many useful tools to assist you in your time of study. With a good study Bible, and these tools, you can enjoy significant spiritual growth over your lifetime.

    (Recommended translations: NIV = New International Version; ESV = English Standard Version; NLT = New Living Translation; NKJV = New King James Version. The "Message" is an interesting, modern paraphrase.

    Ten Guidelines for Understanding the Bible
     

    We will become better students of the Bible if we know and use generally accepted principles of Bible interpretation. The guidelines in this document are adapted from The Wesley Study Bible and are arranged in order of importance. 


     

    Five Bible Study Tips

    (Adapted from The New Century Version - Youth Bible)

    1. Pray. Ask God to guide you as you read. Your prayer doesn't have to be fancy. You might just pray, "Help me, God, to discover you and your will as I read my Bible."

    2. Read. If the passage is not clear the first time you read it, read it again. If you have study notes - read them after you have tried to understand it on your own to see if the notes offer additional insight.

    3. Think. It may help to ask yourself "What's going on in the passage?" How is the world similar or different than it was then? How does the passage fit into my faith?

    4. Do. What is God telling you to do through this passage? What changes or new directions does the passage call for? Decide what you can do to respond to the truth in the passage... it could change your life!

    5. Ask. If a passage confuses or bothers you, talk to someone about it. Ask a pastor, Sunday School teacher, or trusted friend to help you understand.
