About Us

The Precept Bible Study Ministry at Moody Church offers many learning and discipling opportunities for those who want to know and serve God in a deeper way. We firmly believe what the Bible says, “All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16 NASB).

 

You do not need to be a member of Moody Church to attend; all are warmly welcomed. We offer several Bible study classes during the week throughout the year. Not sure whether Precept Bible Studies are for you? Join us to see what we are all about, even though the session might have already started. Our classes are never limited in number or closed.

Much of our confusion and pain results because we don’t know God — who He really is, how He works in our lives.  But with Lord, I Want to Know You, that will all change. When you know God more fully by studying His names — Creator, Healer, Protector, Provider, and many others — you’ll gain power to stand strong. You’ll find strength for times of trial, comfort for pain, and provision for your soul’s deepest needs. And your walk with God will be transformed.
