The great Baptist preacher, Charles Spurgeon, once quipped, "Give yourself unto reading. The man who never reads will never be read; he who never quotes will never be quoted. He who will not use the thoughts of other men's brains proves he has no brains of his own. You need to read."

You'll find a selection of books below that—we earnestly feel—every believer should read as they commit to study God's Holy Word. These books are accessible, doctrinally sound, and immensely practical. We trust you'll find them beneficial for your growth in Christ.

If you have any questions about these books, or would like a recommendation of a book on a particular subject of interest, our pastoral staff would be glad to help you!

  • What is your calling as a parent?

    In the midst of folding laundry, coordinating carpool schedules, and breaking up fights, many parents get lost. Feeling pressure to do everything “right” and raise up “good” children, it’s easy to lose sight of our ultimate purpose as parents in the quest for practical tips and guaranteed formulas.

    Freed from the burden of trying to manufacture life-change in our children’s hearts, we can embrace a grand perspective of parenting overflowing with vision, purpose, and joy. 



    Based on the acclaimed sermon series by New York Times bestselling author Timothy Keller, this book shows everyone—Christians, skeptics, singles, longtime married couples, and those about to be engaged—the vision of what marriage should be according to the Bible.
