The Fighter Verse program is the Scripture memorization program of Treasuring Christ Church.
The five-year Fighter Verse program features 260 passages to help believers fight against their sin and arm themselves for the fight of their faith (Ephesians 6:10-12). It was developed by Bethlehem Baptist Church under the pastorate of John Piper and Desiring God.
Treasuring Christ Church chose to use the Fighter Verse program because it is overall the most developed Scripture memorization program available with the most existing resources to help you.
We are modifying the schedule to unify our church-wide memory initiative with the verses that our children are memorizing in Sunday School. Find the schedule of verses at the bottom of this page.
(Note: If you want to continue on with the Fighter Verse program as it is written, 2018's verses are Set 3 (of five sets) of the Fighter Verse program.Download the Fighter Verse Bookmark with a list of all the dates and verses for 2018.)

The Verses Project
The Verses Project is a website of music and art to help you memorize Scripture. Many of the original songs on this site take the Fighter Verses and set them to music. All of the music and art are free. The songs are of varying quality, but some will find this quite helpful in getting Scriptures to "stick" in their mind.
