“In the testimony of Scripture to the grace of God and the lordship of Jesus Christ, the church has the essential resource for the revitalization of Christ’s body in the world today. Scripture study will impart vital vision and firm commitment to the church as we seek to live faithfully doing Christ’s work.”
