I have been inspired by, and have drawn on, the work of The Navigators, Dr. Jack Van Impe, the Baptist Bible Fellowship International, and www.biblegateway.com in developing this list of memory verses.
All scripture quotations are from the King James Version.
More verses will eventually be added to get three verses for each subtopic under each main topic.
