The Word Online

Welcome to The Word Online!

 
We are glad you're here because this site can truly transform your life. How is that possible? Because TheWord.Online is devoted to helping you get into God's word. And the word of God is living and active. Its truths transform us. Its promises give us hope. Its declarations give us guidance. But God's word isn't designed just to be read on your own. Throughout history the word of God was read among others. This gave people the opportunity to interact with each other- to have iron sharpening iron experiences surrounding Gods word. The word of God and the people of God are the two supernatural resources the Spirit of God uses to help us to become mature men and women of God. Sadly, most people have never gotten into God's word in a communal way. Now with TheWord.Online you can. Those who've entered into this, rave about it. (Watch the introductory mini-movie and you'll see for yourself.)

Unfortunately, many believers are lone ranger Christians, yet we need to be in iron sharpening iron relationships. We can't even live out the teachings of Scripture apart from being in devoted relationships. We don't want to get to the end of our lives and realize how much better our lives and impact could've been if we had just been devoted to God's word and God's people. In our fallen condition it's easy to shy away from God and people, yet restoration and impact come through devoted relationships with God and others in pursuit of God. TheWord.Online is devoted to this.

So what's unique about TheWord.Online? After all, there already are lots of Bible reading guides out there that chart out Bible chapters to read each day. That's good, but just reading doesn't mean there is good understanding and applying. There are also plenty of Bible devotionals to be found. These typically skip around, giving you a bit of the Bible followed by a story. So what is unique about TheWord.Online? Here are 10 of its big strengths:
  1. Monday through Friday we work our way through books of Scripture. You don't have to flip around wondering where to read each day. We all are on the same page. On the weekends, for those who want more, we offer suggested readings that take you through the Psalms and Proverbs.
  2. You are not left alone. You are on a team. (TEAM: Together Everyone Accomplishes More.) You'll be able to read the thoughts of others and build an online community. Those already involved in this love it.
  3. When you finish a Bible book, you earn a non-accredited course credit from our Academy of Biblical Studies. You'll learn so much more than if you just read through the Bible on your own. None of this is hard. There are no tests, papers, or textbooks. Both new believers and pastors say how much they enjoy it. You'll really like it.
  4. You aren't being spoon-fed. You will be given excellent online Bible study tools and commentaries. In the past, these all would have cost thousands of dollars. They are yours for free when you join us.
  5. TheWord.Online is not boring. We always have excellent video clips that correspond with the passage. Some are down-right funny and others are very enlightening. Get ready to enjoy your time together in God's word.
  6. Speaking of video clips, you will also be given a great library of videos and links to a goldmine of resources to edify you. Plus, if you ever wanted help in sharing the gospel with unbelievers, you'll receive a video tool that is so easy to use. Even the most shy gal or guy can use this.
  7. You will be helped to apply the Bible to your life. After reading the portion of Scripture and the explanatory comments on it, there are always one or two questions to help you apply the passage to your life. You will be a successful doer of the word.
  8. Since God has wired us for accomplishing things, you will earn weekly participation awards. No, there is no penalty if a person doesn't participate on the Monday-Friday blog. We just want to honor those who do. The Bible repeatedly speaks of how God gives out heavenly awards and how we are to honor those who work hard among us. We are just following this biblical example.
  9. Because God also wants us to help others to grow, you'll be honored for each person you invite and who joins TheWord.Online. Typically, they will be on your team and you can encourage them along. By the way, TheWord.Online is a great place to mentor or disciple others. There's nothing more important than helping your protege get grounded in God's word. TheWord.Online has proven to be an outstanding place for such. You can see how your proteges are doing on a daily basis. Plus, as they share, they will be encouraged by others. It's not all on you. Teamwork makes the dream work. God has a dream for us, a mission for us- to disciple others who can then go and do likewise. TheWord.Online does much of the heavy lifting of the discipling process for you. How? It is the word of God in the context of the loving people of God which the Spirit of God uses to mature saints. So take advantage of this powerful discipleship tool. Get your proteges into TheWord.Online.
  10. TheWord.Online is also great for local churches or groups. Once you have a core of 16 faithful participants, you can have your own group. You can create your own affinity groups, such as an all women's group, an all men's group, an all married couples group. You could create an all youth group, but we recommend having youth with adults. This is much needed, yet so often lacking. Instead of just interacting with each other at church, teammates can develop much stronger ties to each other as they grow together in God's word. TheWord.Online helps us to be devoted to one another as well to be devoted to God and his word.
