How to Study the Bible:

B.A.S.E
Method

The depth and method of studying the Bible varies. Some read the Bible devotionally, some study it topically, while others study it exegetically. To learn about the B.A.S.E Method created by Harry Shields please… CLICK HERE!

S.O.A.P
Bible Reading Method

The S.O.A.P Bible Reading Method was created by Pastor Wayne Cordeiro. Here is information about the S.O.A.P Bible Reading Method according to Pastor Jon: I write the Scripture verses down that jump out at me as I read the Bible daily. Then I make Observations. I then make an Application and finally I write out a Prayer to God based on that Scripture. The S.O.A.P. strategy will help the Bride of Christ be cleansed by the washing of the Word (Ephesians 5:26). We expect you to be reading or listening to God’s Word everyday. This is one of the specific commitments our members make here when they sign their membership agreement. Why? Too often we rely on other’s study of God’s Word – well-known Bible Study authors and commentaries by pastors and theologians and we don’t try to study the Bible for ourselves. It would be like eating only what others have prepared, like takeout food or even mom’s home-cooked meals but never bothering to cook a meal for ourselves or even take the time to learn how. There is something so satisfying about sitting down to a meal that you have prepared with your own hands. You know exactly what went into that meal and I think you value it more. It is the same with God’s Word. You remember the truths from the Bible that you took the time to study and prepare for yourself. We here at Temple believe that with the right tools and knowledge you can all feast on nutritious meals from God’s Word. Try the S.O.A.P. Bible reading method to cleanse and fill you each day.

Pastor’s Pick For The Month of August-   Jesus Outside The Lines, a way forward for those who are tired of taking sides.   Whether the issue of the day on Twitter, Facebook, or cable news is our sexuality, political divides, or the perceived conflict between faith and science, today’s media pushes each one of us into a frustrating clash between two opposing sides. Polarizing, us-against-them discussions divide us and distract us from thinking clearly and communicating lovingly with others. Scott Sauls, like many of us, is weary of the bickering and is seeking a way of truth and beauty through the conflicts. Jesus Outside the Lines presents Jesus as this way. Scott shows us how the words and actions of Jesus reveal a response that does not perpetuate the destructive fray. Jesus offers us a way forward―away from harshness, caricatures, and stereotypes. In Jesus Outside the Lines, you will experience a fresh perspective of Jesus, who will not (and should not) fit into the sides.    2019 Pastor’s Picks   JANUARY -   Saturate  by Jeff Vanderstelt   FEBRUARY -   Surprise the World  by Michael Frost   MARCH -   Angels Walking  by Karen Kingsbury   APRIL -   Who Shall Ascend the Mountain of the Lord?  by Michael Morales   MAY -   Triggers  by Amber Lia   JUNE -   When I Lay My Issac Dow n by Carol Kent   JULY -   The Sermon on the Mount  by Sinclair B Ferguson   AUGUST - Jesus Outside The Lines by Scott Sauls
