If you want to participate in our church wide extended Scripture memorization "ABIDE 2014" please visit the following website .  If you sign up and own a smart phone make sure to download their app.

Your first step will be to create an account.  Once you have created your account  choose "join a group".  You are looking for the following groups; "Iron Men 2014, Eureka Baptist Women, Onelife Student Ministries, and Rock Solid Children's Ministry".  Once you have joined a group or groups then you can begin the memorization process. I would encourage each participant to set up their own account.

Each group has various ways of inner-group communication which can be used to encourage one another.

Quotes from sermons . . . 

"THIS BOOK contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners and the happiness of believers. Its doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable. Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe and practice it to be holy. It contains light to direct you, food to support you and comfort to cheer you. It is the traveler's map, the pilgrim's staff, the pilot's compass, the soldier's sword and the Christian's character. Here paradise is restored, heaven opened and the gates of hell disclosed. Christ is its grand object, our good is its design and the glory of God its end. It should fill the memory, rule the heart, and guide the feet. Read it slowly, frequently, and prayerfully. It is given you in life and will be opened in the judgment and will be remembered forever. It involves the highest responsibility, will reward the greatest labor, and will condemn all who trifle with its sacred contents." 

The practice of Jesus Himself is ample testimony to the value of Scripture memorization. Jesus said Thus says the Lord, God said, It is written, and Have you not read that it was said 92 times!

we all, . . . beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another” (2 Corinthians 3:18). This is the only Christian way to change behavior so that it honors God. We change because we have seen a superior beauty and worth and excellence.

John Blanchard has warned... There is more to Christian growth than knowing what the Bible says; nobody is ever nourished by memorizing menus.
