Our Vision
“I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death” Philippians 3:10

It is our VISION and call, and commitment to point the church back onto the path of making disciples. It is our passion and directive to lead Christians away from our false perceptions and into His way.

We desire to see a church committed to His purpose and poured out to His ways. Then we will see revival through real prayer and devotion to His Lordship.

“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” Psalm 119:105 KJV

Into Thy Word Ministries teaches people how to study the Bible in a simple, clear, and concise way, discipling pastors and missionaries, providing seminars, speaking,church consulting, discipleship tools and resources for Christian growth.








God’s Word—the Same Yesterday, Today and Forever

By Nancy McGuirk
Bible Commentator
It is amazing to consider the fact that the Bible, written so long ago, is still relevant today.


Women's Community Bible Study -

The Bible has stood the test of time. The words of wisdom found in Scriptures of old still hold true today. History has also proven God’s Word to be true. In the second of six articles on the development of the Bible, teacher and commentator Nancy McGuirk explains that as far as researchers have been able to determine, the events, people and places in the Bible are completely accurate.

I am constantly amazed by the fact that the Bible, written so long ago, is still relevant today. In Matthew 24:3, Jesus tells us, “Heaven and earth will pass away but My words shall not pass away.” Again in Isaiah 40:8, God assures us, “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the Word of God stands forever.”  

The Bible has stood the test of time. The words of wisdom found in Scriptures of old still hold true today. The truths and principles therein are as applicable to our lives as they were to the lives of Abraham, David and the Apostle Paul. 

History has also proven God’s Word to be true. As far as researchers have been able to determine, the events, people and places in the Bible are accurate. For example, when a debate arose many years ago over the book of Acts, the Roman historian Sherwin White wrote, “The facts authenticating the book of Acts are overwhelming. Any attempts to disprove its historicity even in matters of detail are absurd.”  

Additionally, archaeology has proven Scripture to be true. The great archaeologist William Albright said, “All radical schools in New Testament criticism which have existed in the past or the present are pre-archaeological and are quite antiquated today.” In other words, all archaeological evidence that continues to unfold only supports Scripture as accurate and true. If you are interested in reading more about the existing archaeological evidence supporting the reliability of the Bible, I would urge you to read Josh McDowell’s book, A Ready Defense.

In matters of science, the Bible speaks in simple, yet correct terms that avoid absurdities. For example, some non-biblical accounts of creation border on the ridiculous, whereas the Bible is nowhere guilty of this. The Babylonian creation myth, for instance, developed during pre-scientific times, suggests the crude proposition that the earth was formed from a dismembered part of one of the gods after a fight occurred between them in heaven. The biblical narrative, on the other hand, is concise, sensible and above all, accurate.
