Children Bible Stories

Everyone loves a story, so what better place to start than children Bible stories when teaching kids about God?  God reveals Himself through His Word so that we may know Him.  The lives of Bible characters help us understand God's character and ways and also help us recognize ourselves through their stories.

We have included originally written Bible stories to share in one Seamless Bible story overview, other familiar children Bible stories from both the Old and New Testaments and a few you may have never heard of before!  We are always adding new and connecting creative Bible lessons for kids to each; so keep checking back!

God's Story of His Promise - One Seamless Story

These free Children Bible stories are written to help kids understand the overall story of God's Promise in the Bible.  Each is originally written paraphrased straight from God's Word in a language for children of any age to understand.

Each includes free Bible story lessons with activities, review questions and more to help children know God better and understand His promise of the Savior, His Son Jesus Christ.

It all started with God; He is the beginning and He had a plan to provide a promise.  This one page story of The Promise is a great way to introduce the Bible and give an overview of its overall story.

Lifeway's Gospel Project provides an excellent short Bible story video that give an overview of the whole Bible story and how we can teach kids how they connect into one story...His Story:

When you stop to think about the most well known Bible stories of the Old Testament, you will realize most of them actually come from the first book of the Bible - Genesis!  Genesis means "beginning"; so here we will discover God's plan even from the beginning to fix all that man and sin would mess up. 

The Beginning: 

The Story of Creation is based on Genesis 1-2.  It tells of both God's creativity as well as organization.  Everything God created was good.

The Story of Adam & Eve shows God's plan for relationship by creating man and woman in His image.  Because of this they were not created as puppets, but created with Free Will...the ability to reason and choose.

Then came The Fall.  There are always consequences of bad choices.  Even in this story of failure though, we see a glimpse of God's promise to fix it all Himself.

Most of us probably think of the Story of The Flood as a picture of God's punishment on mankind, but really it was another chance given by a loving God and a picture of Jesus.

This is a work in progress...keep checking back with us!

Simpler Bible Stories

"TRUE STORY" is a collection of brief Bible stories written by Gary and Evelyn Harthcock that they used for conversational English classes in their work in Southeast Asia.  These have also been used by many missionaries to share God's Word around the world.  Printable illustrations have been added by Debbie Corley, an ESL volunteer from Ruston, LA.

Their simplicity make them perfect to also be used as children Bible stories.  In addition, they include definitions for understanding the more difficult words.
