Your church may be lagging in health because your members do not understand the Bible well. Sam and Thom explain why most church members need to grasp the Bible as a whole before they can understand its parts. The results could revolutionize your congregation.

  • Bible reading is critical to the spiritual health of a Christian and the church.
  • Most Christians do not read the Bible daily.
  • Very few Christians have been taught to understand the Bible in its entirety.
  • Your church’s small groups are a great place to teach the Bible as a whole.
  • The pastor must be the leader of this emphasis.
