Growing Your Faith by Studying the Bible

Back to Growth Plan List

The Bible is God’s Word to us—a guidebook to keep us connected with our Father in Heaven and to help us navigate our lives.

The words in Scripture help us see God’s character and understand what He wants us to do in good times and in hard times. We cannot grow spiritually without learning and studying Scripture.

Studying the Bible means we are making an intentional effort to spend time reading, reflecting, and applying what we learn while we seek God’s direction, peace, and love.

This Growth Plan presents many methods and tools for studying the Bible. Try them all and stick with the ones that are most meaningful to you
