“Teach me Lord, the way of your decrees, that I may follow it to the end.
Give me understanding so that I may keep your law and obey it with all my heart. Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight.” Psalms 19: 33-35
A person can’t live the Word without knowing the Word. We believe the lessons of the Bible become the foundations for every action, every decision, every path taken…as an individual and as a church. The Bible is the guide for how the faithful follow the Lord and teach others to follow as well. We know learning all the Bible has to teach is a life-long endeavor.
