Read the Bible

Why should I read the Bible? Why is it important for my life today?

We believe the Bible is the standard for everything we do in life as Christians (2 Timothy 3:16), and we also believe studying the Bible is an essential way to form a deep personal relationship with God (Psalm 1:1-2).

As we read, study, seek direction, and grow, we begin to see God more clearly, and our lives change because of that. Digging into God’s Word on a consistent basis helps us develop a strong, healthy spiritual life.

​If you want to know more about God and His promises, reading the Bible is your Next Step.

“Be good to your servant, that I may live and obey your word. Open my eyes to see the wonderful truths in your instructions.”

Versions and Study Bibles

At Journey we use the NLT (New Living Translation) for our on-campus content and most online content due to its easy-to-understand nature. However, we also suggest the following versions for personal Bible study: NIV (New International Version), ESV (English Standard Version), and NASB (New American Standard Bible). In addition, study Bibles are great resources to help you dig deeper into the Bible.
