soap

first things first

Growing a relationship with Jesus is like any other friendship, it takes time and is a life-long journey. This relationship is built through reading your Bible, as well as prayer. We want to encourage you to use the SOAP method. SOAP is an acronym: Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer.

If you have questions about The Bible, Jesus, or Christianity, we encourage you to attend Alpha.

scripture

Take your time reading each chapter. Write down what specific verses catch your attention.

observation

What is God speaking through these verses and throughout the entire chapter? What do these verses mean?

application

From these verses, what principles can you apply to your life right now?

prayer

Communicate with God verbally or by writing in your notebook, and ask Him to help you apply this to your life.

where should I start?

If you’re new to reading the Bible, we encourage you to start in the book of John! It is the fourth book in the New Testament, and one of the books that talks about the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Don’t have a Bible? Download the YouVersion App for your phone! Then check out the John SOAP reading plan.
