We believe the Word of God is powerful. In the early church, the body of believers gathered together to read Scripture. Sometimes, we look so closely at individual verses that we can forget the big picture and the context of the book. Read the Word is designed to read a big section of the Bible so that we get an understanding of the whole of the book. Paul encouraged Timothy to “give attention to the public reading of Scripture." (1 Tim 4:13) We read portions of Scripture each week in our service, Read the Word is a night to read a lengthy section of the Bible.
