Gathering at Church
In the annals of chivalry dating back to the Middle Ages, there existed a code that knights lived by that encapsulated in the timeless creed of ancient knights. This code, known as "Live Pure, Speak True, Right Wrong, and Follow the King," served as a sacred compass guiding the conduct of noble knights in an era steeped in honor and valor. At Calvary Newberg we have adopted this code as a creed to live by encapsulating biblical manhood.
Live Pure. Speak True. Right Wrong. Follow the King.
"Live Pure" epitomized the call to maintain unwavering integrity, upholding moral principles as steadfastly as the blade of a sword.
"Speak True" implored knights to wield their words with the honesty and clarity of a trumpet's call, a testament to the importance of unswerving truth in all matters.
"Right Wrong" summoned knights to be champions of justice, ensuring that righteousness prevailed over injustice like a radiant beacon in the darkest of times.
FOLLOW THE KING
"Follow the King" was an unwavering commitment to serve their sovereign with unflinching loyalty. Knights live their lives completely surrendered to their King.
Men are called to be the spiritual heads of their home. Yet, most men struggle with consistent quiet times and even reading the Bible. Our process of learning to think like Jesus as men centers around the challenge of reading, or listening to the entire Bible in three years. Then, each week, we gather in small groups to process what we are reading/listening to in community.
Read the Bible
1 chapter a day x 3.25 years
= read the entire Bible
Meet Once a Week
Gather Thursdays at 6:30 to process what we're reading or listening to.
To get the job done right, you need the right tools. The reason most men struggle to read the Bible is because they lack the right tools. At Calvary Chapel of Newberg, we're here to help men learn to think like Jesus by providing the right tools to get the job done.
Bible.is Audio Bible
One of the reasons men struggle to read the Bible is time. Bible.is solves this problem by allowing men to listen to the Bible on their commute, completing chores around the house, or as they work in their garage. Bible.is is more than a simple audio Bible. Instead, they have dramatized the entire Bible with actors and sound FX so that the Bible comes alive like never before.
Calvary Men's Bible Reading Plan
A second reason men struggle to read the Bible is that they don't know where to start. Our three year Bible reading plan makes it easy. Simply put, we read one chapter a day. If you miss a day, don't feel pressure to go back and catch up, simply start with today's date. You can even sign up for text reminders to let remind you what chapter we're on.
Big Five Questions
A third reason men struggle to read the Bible is that Scripture can be difficult to understand. That's what the "Big Five Questions" are for. Each Thursday at 6:30pm we gather in groups to discuss these five questions in relationship to the previous week's reading. The questions are designed to unlock understanding and to apply the Bible to help us think like Jesus as men.
Accountability to the Code
A final reason men struggle to read the Bible, and engage as the spiritual head of their home, is because they feel unworthy. Too many men are weighed down by the weight of shame and sin in their lives. Each wee, after answering "The Big Five Questions" to process Scripture, we take time for accountability. Instead of traditional accountability questions (which can lead to further guilt and shame), we simply look at the four areas of our code (Live pure. Speak True. Right Wrong. Follow the King.)
