Teaching verse by verse through God's Word is a core part of Calvary Newberg.
Pastor Tom spends a great deal of time looking at the history, the culture, the language, the intent of the writer and the Author, as well as how we can apply the Word to our everyday lives.
Our studies typically go between 35 and 50 minutes and we tackle sometimes just one verse, or a portion of a chapter as we travel through the Scriptures.
The Psalmist said "Thy Word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against Thee" (Psalm 119:11). Also it says: "Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who doesn’t need to be ashamed, correctly teaching the word of truth" (2Timothy 2:15). We desire to teach God's Word accurately and in a way we can relate to it.
Come prepared to be challenged but in a lively and friendly teaching style. We teach from the Holman Christian Standard Bible. You can find out more about this new and very readable and accurate version at their website.
As you can probably tell from this site, we have hundreds of studies for you to learn from - written notes, video, and audio formats. Just click on Bible Studies from the main menu to access more.
