Please contact us if you have questions or comments or want encouragement.

My First Bible study was when I first became a Christian in 1986. I love Bible studies because it is an excellent opportunity to learn more about our Lord and Savior and, at the same time, fellowship with other-minded Christians who are also growing closer to God. I highly recommend going to a Bible study each week. I encourage you to use this Bible study tools to give you a reading plan.

I also encourage you to do personal Bible study on your own each morning, not to add to your knowledge from the Bible, but to be able to apply your new-found wisdom to practical things in your life. We need to know about our faith for our own sake and the sake of others who may not know about Jesus that much yet. It is wonderful to have a Bible study each week to understand God’s Word and fellowship with other believers! Maybe your church offers a Bible study. If so, you would benefit from attending it. ~ Bill Greguska

Mark 12:24  Jesus replied, “Are you not in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God?

*What is God Like?

  1. First, read Psalm 97:1-9. What do we learn about God from this verse? Read the passage silently first, then state what you know about God aloud.
  2. Then read Psalm 139:1-6 and Psalm 139:7-12. What do we learn about God from these verses? Describe the main thing you learned from each of these sections:
