Explore The Bible Lesson Previews

Life Bible Studies are one of the primary ways we "grow our hearts" at Houston's First Baptist Church. At every campus, volunteer teachers faithfully prepare lessons as they serve their respective classes each Sunday. Many of our adult Life Bible Studies follow the Explore The Bible curriculum produced by LifeWay.

To equip our teachers, previews are provided for each week's lesson. We are happy to make these previews available for our teachers as well as for anybody from anywhere — regardless of church — who is using the Explore The Bible curriculum.

  • Previous Lesson Previews. These are available in the Explore the Bible Lesson Archive below. For many years, our former Executive Pastor Dr. David Self faithfully wrote and recorded these valuable resources. They began on cassette tapes, transitioned to CDs, and then moved to being posted online.
