Precept Upon Precept
We believe God still speaks today and that His primary and authoritative way of doing this is through His Word; all 66 books, every original word inspired by Him! His Word is inerrant, sufficient and understandable. We believe taking in Scripture is a necessary part of the growing Christians life. God has inspired each book to be written in a way that we can understand what is needed to live His way.
- We desire to grow in knowledge that results in women who look more like Jesus.
- We desire to submit to His Word.
- We desire to KNOW God; His character and ways.
- We desire to KNOW Jesus; what His life, death and resurrection have accomplished (the gospel!).
- We strive to do this by using the Inductive Bible study method which uses the Bible as our primary source.
- This method utilizes 3 tools:
- Observation (What does the Bible say?)
- Interpretation (What does this mean?)
- Application (What do I do?)
Through personal daily study, participation in weekly Discussion Groups and the teaching that follows, we strive to grasp God’s Word at a deeper and more impactful level. We gather weekly to worship and hear stories of how God is changing women through His Word.
All three components (daily homework, weekly discussion groups and weekly lecture) are essential if considering registering for a Precept course.
Fall 2018: Daniel Part 1 (Chapters 1-6)
Do you ever wonder how to live out what the Bible says in a culture that seems so opposed? How to love and serve God wholeheartedly in the midst of a world and life that is constantly nagging at us to live for ourselves and our own desires and pleasures?
The study of the first 6 chapters of the book of Daniel will introduce us to a teenager who did just that. He lived a life resolved to honour God in everything. When death was a threat, when rejection was real, when loneliness was his reality, this boy knew HIs God so well that he would not have wanted the temporary relief for anything.
Using the Inductive Bible Study method and a commitment to the components (4-5 hours of personal study/week, weekly discussion groups and large group teaching) we will embark on a journey of Bible study that will show us not only how to live as lights in this world but also will give us a glimpse into the future. This book will encourage and challenge you and will help you find resolve to live faithfully no matter the circumstances you face or the culture that opposes so much of what the Bible holds firm.
Ultimately, we pray you will know your God more. True transforming knowledge of God will help you to stand firm to the end, will dispel fear of the future and will help you to live faithfully in the here and now. All of this is possible because as we know His character, ways and sovereign rule more, we trust Him more.
