Recommended Resources

to equip the saints for the work of ministry,
for building up the body of Christ.

Ephesians 4:12

If you are interested in learning more and getting serious about the Christian faith and way of life, and are looking for some recommendations, this is a good place to start. Recommending a book or site does not mean that we necessarily agree with all of its content. Rather, this is a list of resources that are largely accessible, generally solid, and particularly beneficial in their various categories. Making such recommendations is a central way our elders seek to equip our flock (Ephesians 4:11-13).
