Our Latest - Bible at a Glance

How do you get a handle on the Bible? Or to put it another way, how do you understand the big-picture flow of the Bible? Now those are hard questions! After all, the Bible is a BIG book! We know the Bible is a very important book. But how does a normal person grasp it?

We tend to learn a piece of the Bible here and a piece there. But that can leave us with a large and somewhat random collection of data, not to mention a minimal sense of how (or even if) it all fits together. No wonder people struggle with understanding the Bible. If we only had a unifying sense of how the pieces relate to each other and to the whole.

This brief Bible-based presentation will paint a picture that you can understand and remember. Using simple colors it will provide powerful insights and a high-level understanding of God’s grand plan for the ages. And it will do that in less than 15 minutes! Now that is a worthwhile investment in your Bible understanding and your spiritual growth.

Scriptures Alive! 1 Peter (How to Handle Suffering.) Like believers today, the first century church found that life was not easy, and further that they sometimes paid a price for their faith.  See how the great apostle, Peter, addresses the subject of suffering.  Peter encourages believers to (1) grow on a solid foundation of salvation in Christ, (2) learn to entrust themselves to God with a submissive spirit, and then (3) face suffering, firm in their faith that God will care for them.
