One of the primary ways that we mature in the faith and are equipped to give our lives away is through being grounded in and transformed by the Word of God.   Our vision is to accomplish this task through teaching through the Scriptures verse by verse.   Paul writes in II Timothy 3:16, “All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.”  In all our teaching, our aim is not to simply pass along truth that informs, but to teach in such a way that truth is understood and applied so that it transforms.
