WHY READ THE BIBLE?

For evangelicals, the main purpose of reading and understanding the Bible is to know God and his will for our lives. We believe that only as we know God can we really know ourselves and the true meaning of life. …Our knowing God centres on Jesus, the Word of God who has come in the flesh, and on the Bible, the Spirit-inspired, written word of God that is the true testimony to this incarnate Word. …Faith must rest on the reality of God’s true word and, thus, on a reliable understanding of that word.
