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

1 & 2 Corinthians: Wisdom for the Questions You Have and Hope for the Discouragements You Feel

Join us for a free seven-week study in the First 5 app, starting April 17.

Real help when the Bible feels far from your reality.

When we are faced with personal hardships or relational challenges, the Bible doesn’t always seem like it could be relevant to us because it was written in a different time and culture. But when we study 1 and 2 Corinthians, we find that Paul wrote to real people much like you and me — who wrestled with real questions, real relationships and real sin in their church.

If you’re looking for wisdom when you don’t know what to do, you don’t have to wonder what God would say or think, because He has already given us the answers in His Word. If you’re searching for hope when it feels like nothing will ever change, you have somewhere to turn. We have access to a real God, who has given us real solutions to our real-life struggles.
