Below are listed some internet resources, books, and music that we believe will help you grow in your knowledge, understanding, and application of the Scriptures.  Though we will not agree with every point in every book, or with every doctrinal position of every ministry, organization or song, we still believe these will be beneficial for your sanctification. We have assigned each book a number indicating the level of difficulty.  Books labeled "1" are easy to read, books labeled "3" are challenging reads.
