SoThatYouMightBelieve_blueDid you know that Jesus ranks at the top of the most significant historical figures throughout history? (See for yourself.) But Jesus was so much more than just a significant historical figure. No one who was close to Jesus during the first century thought he was simply a significant historical figure—much more than that, they realized he was God in the flesh!

That’s what the Apostle John believed about Jesus, whom he wrote about in his gospel. In fact, he tells us exactly why he wrote it in John 20:30-31...

Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.

"These are written so that you might believe and have life in his name." This was John’s purpose. He wanted to give clear evidence that Jesus was the Christ, the Son of God, by sharing what Jesus said about himself and what he did to prove it. John wanted his readers then (and now) to experience the blessing of eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ. So, he set out under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit to write a convincing gospel so that others would believe. 

Have you believed this to be true? If not, would you consider reading the gospel of John with us or joining with us on Sundays as we consider Jesus’ truth claims?

If you have come to believe that Jesus is the Christ, are you experiencing and enjoying life in his name? Are you living your life like John—so that others might believe?

Reading Plan

2024 Reading Plan

This year, we have a new Bible reading plan that offers several ways to help you stay in God's word regularly each day. You can read through the whole Bible (or parts of the Bible) in one year by reading a few chapters for 12-15 minutes a day. Or, you can walk more slowly through Scripture by reading and studying our Book of the Month.
