The mission of Precept Ministries Canada is to engage people in relationship with God through knowing His Word, with the vision of helping every believer in Christ living out God's word every day. When people study the Bible for themselves and apply what they have learned they will see God at work in their lives.
At KBC we have qualified Precept Canada leaders who lead Small Group Bible studies using the Precept Bible Study method. “Inductive” means we use the Bible as the primary source of study to learn about God and what the Bible teaches. Precept Bible studies are designed to equip you with inductive study tools so you can discover truth for yourself and apply it to your life in order to become more like our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Small Group Bible Studies
LORD Series Bible Study on Tuesday evenings at 8pm–10 pm
We will be taking a break for the Reason for God Course. We will resume after this course.
LORD Series Bible Studies are about 15 minutes homework over the week. This will prepare you for the discussion of the week’s lesson. Each lesson has an accompanying DVD taught by Kay Arthur that we will watch afterwards. Understanding busy parenting and work schedules, the DVD portion will be optional.
Precept Upon Precept Bible Study on Wednesday mornings at 9:30am – 11:30am
From January 12 to March 16, we will be studying Revelation Part 1—Jesus' Message to the Church. Cost of the workbook: $22.50
"Chapters One through Three of Revelation contain God’s messages to the seven churches of Asia. See how His messages recorded by John so long ago still speak to the church today."
This will be followed by the Gospel of Mark—The Gospel of Jesus Christ, Son of God and Son of Man (Precept Upon Precept) which will begin March 30 and finish May 25. Cost of the workbook: $20.25
"The most important question you will ever answer is this: Who do you believe Jesus Christ is? With all the opinions floating around – He’s a good man, a teacher, a prophet, the Son of God – how can you know who is right? Mark’s account of Jesus’ life gives you the answer, and it is more action-packed and fast-paced than the other three Gospel records. Rather than rehearsing what people said about Jesus, Mark shows you what Jesus actually did. As you learn to carefully observe Mark’s report, you’ll discover that Jesus left no doubt about who He claimed to be. His miracles demonstrated His authority over sickness and infirmity, spiritual darkness, dead religion, threats from nature, and even death itself."
Precept Upon Precept (PUP) Studies are up to 5 hours of homework each week. Doing in-depth study will prepare you for the discussion followed by watching an accompanying DVD taught by Kay Arthur.
If you'd like to sign up or ask any questions, please email Stephanie at email@example.com and/or Liz at Liz@kingbiblechurch.com. The workbooks can be paid to the church by e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Develop your Skills with Precept Workshops
Precept Ministries Canada runs a number of one-off workshops that help teach you skills that enable you to dig deeper into your studies so you can know God deeply. These are all FREE so take advantage of this opportunity!
- If you’re new to the Precept study method and want to learn more or want a refresher, I’d highly recommend Level 1 Essentials of Inductive Study, and Level 2 workshops that touch on how to study different Bible book types.
- If you’ve been using the Precept study method and want to deepen your study skills, after you've completed Level 2 workshops I'd recommend Level 3 advanced workshops. Note that these ones do not run as frequently, can fill up quickly and may require one of the Level 2 workshops as a pre-requisite.
- If you’re interested in leadership, then try one of the leader workshops and speak to us about it!
I encourage you all to check them out and pray about it. If you have any questions, want to know more or would like guidance on which workshop would be good for you, please reach out to Liz who can guide you through the many amazing resources they offer.
