Hope In 

It's an ANCHOR for your soul!

Spera in Deo is Latin for Hope in God.
To the Chief Musician. A Contemplation of the sons of Korah. As the deer pants for the water brooks, So pants my soul for You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God? My tears have been my food day and night, While they continually say to me, "Where is your God?" When I remember these things, I pour out my soul within me. For I used to go with the multitude; I went with them to the house of God, With the voice of joy and praise, With a multitude that kept a pilgrim feast. Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him For the help of His countenance.

Psalm 42:1-5 NKJV

Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath, that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us. This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.

Hebrews 6:7-19 NKJV

Welcome! We are glad you came by to visit us. This place is all about Hope. The hope we have in God through faith in His Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ, as He is revealed in Scripture. Now that last part, as He is revealed in Scripture, is a very important part. Don't skip over it. So many who call themselves Christians today are not very familiar with the Bible...in fact, a growing majority are woefully Biblically illiterate! We would like to do our part in some small way to change that, which is why this site exists - to bring together resources for Bible study and encourage everyone who stops by here to get more familiar with God's Word. After all, it's Your Heavenly Father's letter to YOU. How might He feel if you never even bothered to read it?

Biblical illiteracy is running rampant in the United States! We recently asked our visitors to take an unscientific poll and evaluate their own Bible literacy. About sixty percent felt they were Biblically literate; twenty five percent admitted to illiteracy; twelve percent weren't sure and about three percent said "who cares?". (God cares! That's Who!)

If you would like a little tool to test your own Bible literacy level, click on the link to our quizzes below.

About half of our visitors say they read their Bible every day. Hey, how about YOU? It is an excellent habit to get into. We invite you to do so using some of the tools we have here. We have two options to offer to you:
