Who we are

Scripture Memory Fellowship's mission is to cultivate systematic Scripture memorizers who know Jesus Christ and grow in His likeness for the glory of God. We do this by offering printed, digital, and musical Bible memory tools for every age group. We also promote live events, such as Scripture Memory Camp and Scriptorium, to cultivate the habit of obeying, the heart of understanding, and the art of presenting the life-giving words of God (Ezra 7:10; John 6:63; James 1:22).

Scripture Memory Fellowship was founded in 1977, utilizing the same materials developed for Bible Memory Association (BMA). Based in Texas, SMF operates primarily for North America but has partners in Spain, Indonesia, and beyond.

What we believe

We believe the Old and New Testaments to be the infallible God-breathed Word in their original writings and the only authoritative and all-sufficient rule of faith and practice. (Isa. 8:20: 2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:21)

We believe that there is one true God, eternally existing in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, the same in essence and equal in power and glory. (Matt. 28:19-20; John 10:30; 2 Cor. 13:14)

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His vicarious death by which we have redemption through His blood, in His bodily resurrection, and ascension to the right hand of the Father. (Matt. 1:21-23; Acts 1:11; 1 Cor. 15:3-4)
