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.
