THE STORY: KNOW God’s story; LIVE our place in His story; Be equipped to SHARE His Story

The Story

"The greatest story ever told" God goes to great lengths to rescue lost and hurting people. That is what The Story is all about: the story of the Bible, God's great love affair with humanity. Condensed into 31 accessible chapters, The Story sweeps you into the unfolding progression of Bible characters and events from Genesis to Revelation. Using chapters from the Bible, it allows the stories, poems, and teachings of the Bible to read like a novel. Like any good story, The Story is filled with intrigue, drama, conflict, romance, and redemption - and this story’s true!

In the beginning God is creating the heavens and the earth. At the end he is creating a new heaven and a new earth. So the big question is this: “What on earth happened between the beginning and the end of the Bible?” If you can answer that question you will have uncovered the one seamless story of God.

God wants you to know his story. It’s found in His book. He wants most of all for you to meet in his story is his son. He desires for you to look long into the eyes of Jesus Christ and hear his claims that what he began in the first chapter of creation he will realize at the last chapter of the New Creation, where a perfect people can live in a perfect place with their perfect Lord.

And why not share The Story with others? This is a great way to draw people into hearing about The Story of the Gospel. We have enough copies to go round. Pick up your copy of The Story or large print copy from the office, or let us know and we will get a copy to you.
