We count it a joy and delight to be a people who desire to linger over the Word of God. God’s Word reveals the glory of God to us, comforts us when we’re too shaken, and shakes us when we’re too comfortable; it is light for a thousand dark nights, and healing for a thousand deep hurts.

We love the Bible, so below you’ll find many resources to help you dig deeply into it.
