Although we do provide avenues for personal discipleship and growth through various ministries, we strongly encourage people to take the initiative (and responsibility) to read good books. Below we list some of the books that we recommend. Though there are literally hundreds of books you could read, these are some we feel are well worth your time and will impact your journey with Jesus Christ, for His glory and your good. Also, be sure to check out our church library for a selection of some of these books and more for you to be able to purchase.
