Fall Precept Study
September 10 - November 12

Mark - The most important question you will ever answer is this: Who do you believe Jesus Christ is? Mark’s account of Jesus’ life gives you the answer, and it is more action-packed and fast-paced than the other three gospels.

PRECEPT INDUCTIVE BIBLE STUDIES
These Bible study groups are varied in age, Bible study experience, and church membership. During class there is about an hour discussion covering our lesson homework followed by viewing a video lecture which complements the lesson. All are welcome to join one of our classes.
What is a Precept Bible Study? Precept Ministries International was co-founded by Jack and Kay Arthur in 1970. Precept Bible Study uses the Inductive Method of studying God’s Word, digging deeper into the richness of God’s truth. According to the Precept Ministries International website, “Precept Ministries International was raised up by God for the sole purpose of establishing people in God’s Word to produce reverence for Him. It serves as an arm of the church without respect to denomination. God has enabled Precept to reach across denominational lines without compromising the truths of His inerrant Word. We believe every word of the Bible was inspired and given to man as all that is necessary for him to become mature and thoroughly equipped for every good work of life.”
The Method. Individual study is the first step. Lessons are divided into 5 days of personal homework. Group discussion is based upon observations and insights from your personal study. For many students, it is in the discussion that the lesson begins to “gel.” The discussion confirms, clarifies, and encourages us as each student seeks to discover truth for themselves. Discussion of the Bible’s truths helps to seal them in our minds and sharing application encourages individuals to live out what they are learning. Our discussion is followed by a teaching video which enhances the lesson we have studied. In this Bible study approach, spending time to know what the Bible says, understanding what it means, and living it out in our daily life results in a life that honors God.
