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.

I’m so grateful I’ve been guided here

So thankful for Colin Smith’s ministry
After the privilege of hearing pastor Colin Smith speak this summer during our family vacation, I cannot tell you how delighted I am to have found this podcast with more of his excellent teaching. Pastor Smith keeps his teaching so closely tied to the Bible, and at the same time makes it so personal and applicable in such a winsome way. My husband and I both felt the Lord ministering to us through his teaching. I am happy to recommend this podcast to anyone who could use encouragement to draw near to our amazing God, and who would like to grow in their ability to apply scripture to everyday life.
Early in July 2020 I received a call from Unlocking The Bible to see if I had any prayer request. I don’t think this has ever happened in my entire Christian life. At the time my husband was on his deathbed with a rare cancer, completely incurable. I asked for prayers for him. An unlocking the Bible representative called me back 2 times to see what the situation was. My husband went to heaven in July 2020. And just the other day a representative of Unlocking The Bible called to see about me and had prayer with me. I thank my heavenly father for this ministry!
