The most basic need we have is to grounded in the Word of God.  For we cannot be grounded in God's love if we aren't grounded in our knowledge of the Bible (Ephesians 3:17b-19).


If you do not currently have a Bible reading plan that you are using.  Here is one that can help ground you in the Word.

Growing in Grace

Peter calls every Christian to "grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (2 Peter 3:18).  It is my prayer as a Pastor/Shepherd I may be able to assist you in this process of growth by providing resources that will honor Christ and exalt his Name and strengthen your faith. (2 Peter 3:18b)
