The Bible

Do we have God's words or not?

  • The Bible

    God's Word is the foundation of how we live as Christians. It is through this book that we are led to eternal life.

  • Under Attack

    Sadly, many people believe that the Bible is just a copy of a copy of an old document lost to history.

  • Christians Equipped

    What if every Christian could be trained by the foremost scholar today on the topic of New Testament manuscripts?
