The mission of Precept Ministries 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 Ministry 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 Savior Jesus Christ.
Small Group Bible Studies
LORD Series Bible Study on Tuesday evenings at 8pm–10 pm
From September 21 to December 14, we will be studying Lord, Is It Warfare? Teach me to Stand via Zoom.
"Are You Fully Equipped for Spiritual Battle? Once you become a Christian, you enter a war zone. The problem is, you may not even realize it. But that’s about to change. Lord, Is It Warfare? will equip you to recognize and understand the spiritual warfare that is inevitable for those who follow the Lord Jesus Christ. You’ll learn all the battle tactics and devices of your adversary, Satan. And you’ll discover Scriptural ways to overcome the enemy by turning to Christ, who loves you and offers you all the strength, wisdom, and power you need for victory."
Cost for the study book: $17.00
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 September 22 to October 27, we will be studying 2 Timothy—A Study in Discipleship (Precept Upon Precept) via Zoom.
"Paul entrusted the Gospel to Timothy and others. Are you guarding the treasure of the Word that has been entrusted to you? By your life? By your words? Even in the midst of persecution?"
Cost of the workbook: $13.50
This will be followed by Kings and Prophets Series (#9)—Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk (Precept Upon Precept) which will begin November 3 and finish December 8.
"Understanding the Anger of God: These were the last prophets to the Southern Kingdom of Judah before Judah was taken captive to Babylon. Each prophet cried out to a nation which needed to heed the Word of the Lord about judgment. Any nation, Assyria or Judah, which chose to worship idols rather than God, would be judged by God unless they turned to Him in repentance, but God would warn them first. "
Cost of the workbook: $13.50
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.

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 you 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.
