Open the Bible challenges you to believe that your life can be transformed by ‘The Power of the Open Book’ through consistent study of the Bible and a deepening faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ. The ministry grew from a two-year journey of preaching and reading through the Bible, shared by the congregation of The Orchard Evangelical Free Church in 2000 and 2001. Colin Smith, Senior Pastor at The Orchard, served as the preaching pastor throughout these two intentional years of reading through Scripture. The journey led to the publication of a series of four books entitled Unlocking the Bible Story, followed by Ten Keys for Unlocking the Bible, Unlock the Bible in 30 Days, Ten Keys to Unlock the Christian Life, and The Ten Greatest Struggles of Your Life. The 25-minute daily broadcast was launched in 1999 and has seen steady growth throughout the years. In addition, through the use of podcasts, mobile apps, and social media, the ministry reaches hundreds of thousands of people around the world with its gospel-centered content.
