Spend your first 5 minutes with God

First 5 is a daily bible study app brought to you by Proverbs 31 Ministries. First 5 was specifically designed to greet you with a short teaching in God’s Word each day, before you get distracted by social media and everything else screaming for your attention. It will equip you to better study and know the Word of God.


Our NEXT Study

Good News: How the Four Gospels Point Us to One Person We Can Trust

A six-week study in the First 5 mobile app, starting November 13.

Maybe what your weary heart really needs is to be alone with Jesus.

As believers, we are called to live like Jesus and find rest in Him. But we can’t live like Jesus if we don’t really know how He lived during His time on earth. And we’ll never feel comfortable coming to Him with our troubles if we don’t truly understand what a trustworthy, safe place He is for us. We are diving into 30 significant moments of His life and ministry in our new study so that we can become better friends with our Savior. When we are worn down and need hope, the Gospels remind us He is close. He is not a far-off and distant figure in history; He became a very real human so we might know Him today and learn to live by His example.

Whether you’ve read these stories about Jesus dozens of times or you’ve never studied them before, you’re invited to learn something new by spending 30 days in the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John with us.
