Open the Bible is the teaching ministry of Pastor Colin Smith. Our mission is to use a broad array of modern media to help people around the world meet Jesus. We do this by opening the Bible for them, helping them open the Bible themselves, and equipping them to open the Bible with others.
Pursuing One Holy Passion, Part 1
Jesus Christ did not come into the world to offer you a passport to heaven. In part one of Pursuing One Holy Passion, Pastor Colin talks about why you shouldn’t settle for a passport, when you could have a relationship. Find out what that means.
Simeon's Story, Part 1
Simeon was an ordinary man who had the extraordinary privilege of holding Jesus in his arms... eight days after he was born. Hear his testimony, and discover what he said about the Son of God, as Pastor Colin delivers a first-person message from Simeon.

Do you love the church? Pastor Colin gives us a helpful grid to test how much we share Jesus’ love for the church.
The Bride: Christ's Union with the Church, Part 1
You didn’t have great relationship with your dad, so how can you relate to God as Father? Pastor Colin talks about how Jesus loves the church and what that means for you.
The Building: Christ's Presence in the Church, Part 2
When the Bible refers to the church as a building it is not talking about bricks and mortar. Pastor Colin Smith explains that this building analogy actually speaks of Jesus’ presence in the church.
Growing in faith
There’s so much to ponder. I often listen more than once to each message. I look forward to these messages each day.
Such beautiful truth.
I love this podcast. It makes me love JESUS more!
