Our Lord prayed, "Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth" (Jn. 17:17). To this end, we believe that one of the greatest means to enjoying God is the knowing, relishing, and proclaiming of his truth, the Word of God. River Hills and its leaders would like to invite you to join us as we feast upon the riches of God's Word by way of Scripture memory. We feel that the Bethlehem Baptist's Elder Affirmation states the matter well:
We believe that faith is awakened and sustained by God’s Spirit through His Word and prayer. The good fight of faith is fought mainly by meditating on the Scriptures and praying that God would apply them to our souls. We believe that the promises of God recorded in the Scriptures are suited to save us from the deception of sin by displaying for us, and holding out to us, superior pleasures in the protection, provision, and presence of God. Therefore, reading, understanding, pondering, memorizing, and savoring the promises of all that God will be for us in Jesus are primary means of the Holy Spirit to break the power of sin’s deceitful promises in our lives. Therefore it is needful that we give ourselves to such meditation day and night.
