Resources from Foundations: Exploring the Bible

At Southminster our current sermon series is Foundations: Exploring the Bible


In our sermons we'll be exploring some foundational ideas and themes that we see in the Bible including what is the bible, the story of the Bible, God, Jesus Christ, Holy Spirit, the covenants, the law, gospel of the kingdom, and heaven and earth. It's crucial for followers of Jesus to have a strong understanding of the basics so they can grow a strong foundation of faith able to withstand the storms of life. 


Below you'll find videos from The Bible Project and resources for further study for each week that will help you gain a solid understanding of each week's topic. We pray these resources help you grow as a follower of Jesus.
