Search Tips

Keep It Simple

Instead of using complete senctences, search for keywords or phrases to find what you are looking for.


Google's spell checker automatically uses the most common spelling of a given word, whether or not you spell it correctly. For example, type in "farisee" and you will get results for "pharisee."

Try Different Search Terms

You may need to reconsider your search terms if you are not finding what you are looking for. Add more keywords or try different keywords.

Use Similar Words

Use similar words tp produce more relevant results. For Example: secure safe safety security


A search for Holy Spirit will yeild the same results as a search for holy spirit.

Use Quotation Marks

Use quotation marks to find exact phrases. For example, if you type "fruit of the spirit," the search would result in documents containing that phrase. Without the quotation marks, it would find all uses of those words, but not in any particular order.

Excluding words

You can exclude certain words from you search results by putting a minus sign in front of those words. For example, if you want to search for holy, but do not want to see any results related to the Holy Spirit, type in holy -spirit and your results will not include references to the Holy Spirit.
