If you’re a new believer, first of all, we want to say that there’s nothing better than placing your faith in Jesus. We are so excited for you!
Secondly, we know it can be overwhelming at first. How should I study the Bible? Where do I start? We’ve all been there, and to help you have a plan for getting in the Word, we rounded up five studies for new believers. Together, these five studies will take you through a year of Bible study!
Our prayer is that you come to know God more and more in the year ahead. Let’s dive in!
From Beginning to Forever by Elizabeth Woodson | 8 Sessions
In From Beginning to Forever, Elizabeth Woodson guides you through the story of the Bible, showing how all 66 books combine to form one unified narrative. Weaving together the rich theological truths found in Genesis through Revelation, this 8-session study shows the eternal significance of what God is doing in the world and how He invites us to be a part of it.
Encountering God by Kelly Minter | 7 Sessions
Spiritual disciplines are essential to a more vibrant spiritual life and knowing God more intimately. Join Kelly Minter as she unpacks the biblical foundation for these sacred habits along with approachable ways to practice disciplines like prayer, study, worship, rest, simplicity, generosity, celebration, and many more. Instead of being just one more thing on your to-do list, you’ll find that these habits of faith can create more margin in your life—providing peace and rest as you walk closer with Jesus.
Everyday Theology by Mary Wiley | 8 Sessions
Theology is the study of God, what He has done, is doing, and will do in the world. And it’s not just for those with formal education or those who work at your church. It’s for you in your everyday moments, questions, and decisions. Our theology is the basis of our faith and touches every part of our existence. In this study, you will explore 8 essential doctrines and come to know God more deeply as you examine these foundational truths.
Open Your Bible by Raechel Myers and Amanda Bible Williams| 7 Sessions
Whether you already open your Bible every day, have never read it before, or struggle to keep up with studying Scripture, Open Your Bible, a 7-session study from the women behind She Reads Truth, will leave you with a greater appreciation for the Word of God, a deeper understanding of its authority, and a stronger desire to truly know the Bible inside and out.
You will learn practical ways to read, study, and apply Scripture with confidence. Using Scripture itself, powerful storytelling, and real-life examples, Open Your Bible will quench a thirst you might not even know you have—one that can only be satisfied by God’s Word.
Finding I AM by Lysa TerKeurst | 6 Sessions
Join Lysa TerKeurst to explore the seven I AM statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John. Through this interactive, in-depth study, you will learn to trade feelings of emptiness and depletion for a more personal fulfillment from knowing who Jesus is.
