30 Scriptures To Help You Grow

30 Scriptures to Help You Grow

If you joined us on Sunday you know that it was a historic weekend for our church. Not only did we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Portland Bible College, but we also had the honor of hearing from all three men that have served as Lead Pastors for CBC.

If you didn’t get a chance to join us, you can watch the conversation by clicking here.

During the course of the conversation, Brother Dick Iverson, the Founding Pastor of CBC, talked about a list of 30 scriptures that he wrote down and memorized early on to help him grow in his walk with Christ. This is such a valuable resource that we wanted to provide the full list here for you to use in your own walk with Christ.

30 Scriptures to Help You Grow by Brother Dick Iverson

Matthew 6:9-13 In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.
