The Different Sets

Fighter Verses

The Fighter Verses focus on the character and worth of our great God, battling against our fleshly desires, and the hope of the Gospel. This five-year memory program is a revision of the original program, now the Legacy Set, and includes a number of the original verses as well as many new verses.

Extended Memory Set

The Extended Memory Set is designed for those who wish to memorize longer passages of Scripture. Still structured as a five-year program, this set will walk you through memorizing Philippians, James, Romans 5-8, the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7), and one year of larger passages from various books of the Bible that are considered key to the life of faith.

Legacy Set

The Legacy Set is the original Fighter Verse collection as it was released in 1997, focusing on the fight of faith. Along with a number of short passages, this collection also includes the Sermon on the Mount (as the fifth year). The Legacy FV Collection will be available through 2011.

Foundation Verses

Foundation Verses are strategically chosen Bible verses for children preschool through age five. The pack includes verses designed to lay a firm scriptural foundation of basic Biblical truth that will pave the way for faith response.
