Bible Memory Challenge
With the events that have occured during 2020, there is little doubt Christians are in for some very difficult times. Our prayer is that God will restrain the evil that has gripped America, but whether He does or not, we must have our souls strengthened. We all need to take an inventory. Are we truly prepared spiritually? What if we found ourselves in some sort of internment center? It has certainly happened to Christians in the past. What if we had no access to our Bibles or to hymnals? These are reasons why we should all be "hiding God's Word in our hearts." Each week, Pastor Dean will challenge us with two verses to memorize.

The Dean Bible Ministries website has been the primary vehicle for Sunday morning church service. I, along with a couple of friends, join West Houston Bible Church during the live stream. I have appreciated the order of service, choice of hymns, and the sermon. There are no churches in the area that has teaching like Dr. Dean’s.
This season of learning and studying the Word has been amazing! It has affirmed and solidified what I believe about God and what the Bible has revealed about Him. I didn’t have to “relearn” much. Using the website to study other books like Romans and Revelation has also changed my mind on things that I thought to be true (e.g. gift of tongues or prayer language; modern apostles or prophets or God revealing ‘new things’; tithing; election; predestination...). Having access to the Chafer Conference and its archives has been wonderful! Also, having the power point slides is nice so that I can go back and look at what I missed in my note taking! I have also appreciated the transcripts of the messages. The amount of the rich study made available to myself and anyone wanting it is incredible! It has been (and I believe will continue to be... as long as I choose to walk in the Spirit...) transforming to my spiritual life! I am grateful and thankful for DBM!
