Bible reading plans & Memorization

It is good for those in the church body to read God's Word regularly. We encourage you to find a partner or group to read through the Bible with this year: your spouse, a friend, community group. We hope and pray that you will be encouraged and enriched as you read Scripture together and know God deeper.


Click here to read an article by Ron Frost about Bible Read-throughs.
The following are some reading plan options: 

 Read Scripture/The Bible Project: following the story of the Bible a few chapters each day, as well as one Psalm per day to pray through. Since it’s easy to get lost or overwhelmed, each day you come to a new biblical book, there is a short animated video on YouTube about its design and message and what to look for as you read.

Professor Grant Horner's Bible reading system: if you're looking for a good challenge, this read-through has you reading 10 chapters each day, one from each of the ten lists from different areas in Scripture. Every year you’ll read through all the Gospels four times, the Pentateuch twice, Paul’s letters 4-5 times each, the OT wisdom literature six times, all the Psalms at least twice, all the Proverbs as well as Acts a dozen times, and through the OT History and Prophetic books about 1 ½ times. Since the interweaving is constantly changing, you will experience the Bible commenting on itself in constantly changing ways.


In the following video, Francis Chan talks about why it is so valuable that people read the Word of God:

Based in Portland, this team creates videos about all sorts of things: books of the Bible, words used in the Bible, themes, and types of literature in the Bible: all for the purpose of being "committed to helping the whole world see the Bible as one unified story that leads to Jesus" (their mission statement). These videos and study guides can be used individually or in groups! Check out the video below for further explanation and explore their website at for their vast library of tools and videos.

New City CatechismNew City Catechism

Throughout the history of the church, Christians have used catechisms--collections of questions and answers designed for memorization--to teach others the core doctrines of the faith. The New City Catechism is a modern-day resource aimed at reintroducing this ancient method of teaching to Christians today. The short book lays out 52 questions and answers related to God, human nature, sin, Christ, the Holy Spirit, and more. Whether used devotionally, recited orally, or memorized over the course of a year, families, churches, small groups, and Christian school will treasure it as a valuable tool for teaching the core doctrines of the Christian faith to children and adults alike.


Systematic Theology

Systematic theology

The Christian church has a long tradition of systematic theology, that is, studying theology and doctrine organized around fairly standard categories such as the Word of God, redemption, and Jesus Christ. This introduction to systematic theology has several distinctive features: - A strong emphasis on the scriptural basis for each doctrine and teaching - Clear writing, with technical terms kept to a minimum - A contemporary approach, treating subjects of special interest to the church today - A friendly tone, appealing to the emotions and the spirit as well as the intellect - Frequent application to life - Resources for worship with each chapter - Bibliographies with each chapter that cross-reference subjects to a wide range of other systematic theologies.

Delighting in the Trinity: An Introduction to the Christian Faith

Delighting in the Trinity

Why is God love? Because God is a Trinity. Why can we be saved? Because God is a Trinity.
How are we able to live the Christian life? Through the Trinity. In this lively book, we find an introduction to Christianity and the Christian life that is from start to finish rooted in our triune God―Father, Son, and Spirit. Not only do we understand the person and work of Christ through the Trinity, but also prayer, the church and every aspect of our faith. With wit and clarity, Reeves draws from church history down to the present referencing a wide range of notable teachers and preachers. Here is a rich and enjoyable portrayal of the basic beliefs of Christianity that opens up the profound and life-changing truths of our faith. A must-read for every Christian!

The Story of John G. Paton or Thirty Years Among South Sea Cannibals

The story of John G. PatonSome of the best reading you can invest in as a Christian is reading missionary biographies. In his thrilling autobiography, John G.

American Gospel: a two-part series

Christ Alone (2018)

Is Christianity Christ + the American dream? American Gospel examines how the prosperity gospel (the Word of Faith movement) has distorted the gospel message, and how this theology is being exported abroad.
This feature-length film is the first in a series.

Christ Crucified (2019)

The gospel message of "Christ crucified" has always been offensive. In our culture it is common for preachers to soften the offense of the cross, and the attributes of God that are displayed in the person of work of Jesus Christ. "American Gospel: Christ Crucified" explores how the paths of post-modernism and progressive Christianity lead to a different gospel, and a god created in our own image.

"But we preach Christ Crucified, to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness..." (1 Cor. 1:23)

- We often hear the phrase, “Jesus died for our sins.” What does that mean?
- Is the God of the Old Testament the same as the God in the New Testament?
- Did God the Father kill Jesus?
- Can a loving God also express wrath?
- Why is hell necessary?
