Why Study the Bible?
The Bible is God’s roadmap to Heaven, eternal life. It was written with a purpose – to authenticate the Divinity of Christ, to give hope, to provide examples and warnings, to give knowledge of Eternal Life. It is a life-giving and life-changing Book. Read it for yourself.
Study it. Love it. Come Alive!
