SOAP Bible study guide

At Gulfside, our desire is that every believer would not just attend church, but also hear from God daily through His Word! We believe that doing daily devotions re-patterns the way we think, transforms our heart, and helps us become more like Jesus! SOAP is the study plan that we think is easiest to pick up. We hope you’ll join us in SOAPing!
