About the Bible
The Bible is one big compilation of 66 books. The first 39 are called the 'Old Testament' and are filled with history, stories, poetry and prophetic writings. These books cover the entire history of God's people before Jesus came to us.
The last 27 books are called the 'New Testament". These books are all about Jesus! His birth, life, death, resurrection and what His sacrifice means for us, the Church.
Where Do I Start?
The Bible can seem pretty intimidating if you’ve never read it. We want to make it easy for you to get started and build a habit of spending time with God by reading His word every day. Because of the structure of the Bible, you don't have to start reading it from the beginning like a Novel. Doing this can be difficult and confusing. Many people begin reading the Bible for the first time in the New Testament.
Reading your Bible is all about being transformed. But this doesn't mean it has to be a difficult and overwhelming process. It's about allowing yourself to be filled with faith, truth and life so that you can be sustained for the rest of your days.
Just 10 Minutes A Day
You can spare that, right? Reading the Bible for just 10 minutes a day can change the rest of your days. It will bring you hope, encouragement, guidance, and practical advice on the every day issues you’re facing. The Bible is relevant to everyone, everywhere, at any time.

The purpose of the Bible is to know God and to help us develop a relationship with Him. It is not just for knowledge. Jesus corrected people for thinking that knowledge of the Scriptures was enough, and showed them that the purpose was to understand who He is and how to be like Him.
