Start Your Journey
Each year we commit to reading God’s word together. No matter where we are in the year, you can start your journey with us!
You can’t have a close relationship with someone you never talk to. It’s impossible. God’s word – the Bible – is the primary way He speaks to us. And it’s the absolute best way to discover how to follow Jesus on a daily basis. If you want to know more about God and His promises, reading the Bible is your next step.
The Calvary Plan
For 2023, our reading plan follows along with our year-long series titled “52: The Pursuit of Jesus.” Stay up to date on our Bible Reading Plan by printing off a copy of your own or downloading our Calvary App!
Where Do I Start?
Reading the Bible can seem like a huge task if you’ve never done it – the language, the length, not knowing where to start. We get it!
We want to make it easy for you to get started and build a habit of reading God’s word. We recommend starting in the New Testament, with Jesus – all the rest ultimately points to him.
Take It Deeper
There are many methods of Bible study to seek and understand, and it’s important to find methods that seek truth and application in Scripture and that works for you. A method we often use at Calvary is called SOAP, and stands for Scripture, Observation, Application, and Prayer. You can do these four things in prayer, in a journal, out loud, with a small group, with a spouse, with a friend – whatever works for you!
S for Scripture
O for Observation
A for Application
P for Prayer
Need A Bible?
When looking for a Bible, look at any large book retailer for one in a version you’re comfortable reading. Popular versions include the NIV, NRSV, NASB, or ESV. You can also pick up a free Bible at the Next Steps Center at any location this Sunday!
