Study the Bible

Jesus replied, “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God."


- Matthew 22:29

Why we study the Bible

Here at WCC, we are absolutely committed to the authority of the Bible. We believe that every word of Scripture is true. The author of Hebrews described the Bible this way:


For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.


- Hebrews 4:12


When we read the Bible we are reading the very words of God! Getting into the habit of spending time with God every day in His Word is one of the best ways to grow in your walk with Him. 


 

How to study the Bible

We are so fortunate to live in a day where there are more resources available for studying the Bible than at any other time in history.


Despite the resources available to us, many experts believe that biblical illiteracy is at an all time high in the church. How can we help change that?


Start to assimilate the truths of the Bible into your life!


How do you do that?


Read, study, memorize and meditate on God's Word. Then apply the principles that God is teaching you.


How do you apply Scripture?


1st ask: What did it mean to the original hearers?


2nd ask: What is the underlying timeless principle?


3rd ask: How could I practice that principle?
