Reading the Bible
The Bible is a whole library of books divided into two parts. The Old Testament books were written over centuries (mostly in Hebrew) by Jewish historian, poets, prophets, and philosophers and together they tell the story of God’s work in the world, choosing one people to know and love Him. The New Testament books were written in a short period (in Greek) to tell about the life and death of Jesus of Nazareth and the early days of the Christian Church. We believe that these books were inspired by God, so that together they paint a reliable picture of God’s relationship to us and His purposes for us. They tell that we were made to love God and to live eternally with Him, and that death is not the end.
Are you familiar with Handel’s musical masterpiece, Messiah? Its text is a collection of quotations from the Bible, telling this story. If you want to hear more, we read from the Old and New Testaments every Sunday, and the sermon is always focused on explaining a Bible passage. Moreover, our form of service relies in large part on quotations and paraphrases of the Bible. If you want to learn about the wonderful things that God has prepared for you, we welcome you to our Sunday services.
