2023 Bible reading challenge

Join our congregation as we strive to show ourselves approved in 2023 by aiming to READ THE NEW TESTIMENT 12 TIMES IN 2023!

Simply by enjoying 10 chapters a day!

Why take part of the challenge?

In an effort to study the Holy Bible more diligently and fulfill what is written in:

Joshua 1:8
This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.

This challenge aims to encourage us to read HIS Word together with our brothers, sisters and friends abroad so that we may grow and flourish together in heart, soul and mind, as King Solomon proclaims in Proverbs 27:17 “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another”.
