About Us

The Precept 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.


It’s never too late to begin studying God’s Word! Find information on our upcoming classes below. Use the Contact form below so we can expect and welcome you, or email us at precepts@moodychurch.org.

There are times when we all wonder if we’ll make it in life — and if it’s worth even trying. Feelings of unworthiness and guilt over past sins, times of spiritual weakness and inadequacy … the burdens seem overwhelming. But don’t give up! God’s grace is available freely and lavishly for all who would take it.


Lord, I Need Grace to Make It Today will minister to you in intimate ways. You’ll discover how to appropriate God’s grace for every situation and every emotion you must face.

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.
