Recommended Resources

It’s hard to overestimate the impact one good book can make on your walk with God.  More than anyone else, a Christian should be a person who loves to read.  Many Christians often want to study a particular area but do not know a reliable book to help form their thinking in that area.  As pastors, we have put together a list of books we strongly recommend for your spiritual health.
