Inside this Bible Study Aid ebook:
"Even though we might possess the world's brightest minds, if God does not act to open our minds, the Bible will remain closed to us."
"One vital key we must come to understand is that the Bible interprets itself. We must be careful not to force our own interpretations onto it."
"For us to understand the Bible, we must first learn about and respect God's law."

We trace our origins to the Church that Jesus founded in the early first century. We follow the same teachings, doctrines and practices established then. Our commission is to proclaim the gospel of the coming Kingdom of God to all the world as a witness and to teach all nations to observe what Christ commanded (Matthew 24:14; 28:19-20).
