Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Lack of sound Biblical teaching and training is rampant throughout the world. Without the knowledge of what God's Word says, people will fall away, get carried away by false doctrines, and even accept heresies as truth.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Inductive Bible Study

Inductive study, a method that brings you directly to the Word of God apart from another’s understanding or interpretation of the text, involves three skills: observation, interpretation, and application.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To transform the world with God's Word, we recruit, equip, and resource Bible Study Leaders who take God’s life-changing Word to their communities. Scripture guides you towards God. Precept guides you through Scripture.

• We offer Bible Study Leader Training designed to develop Bible study skills and to equip individuals with the ability to lead Bible studies using the various resources that we have available
• Precept Bible Study classes are taught in churches, homes, small groups, workplaces, Christian schools and homeschool groups in over 180 different countries
• Throughout the world, we offer support to pastors with resources that equip them to prepare sermons, aid them in church planting, support their counseling efforts, and prepare them for various other aspects of ministry work
• We provide a range of free resources that are available electronically
• We have online Bible study lessons and training

We provide training to local pastors and lay leaders to be equipped to teach others to learn the truth in God's Word through inductive Bible study. Each person trained will be able to multiply their efforts after learning the skills taught in our trainings because they will be using Scripture to interpret Scripture. Through assessment groups, the leaders are evaluated on the way they lead discussions and how they present the materials to students. This practical training allows the leader to learn how to hone the skills that were taught to help ensure effective teachings. Throughout the world, trained leaders will then go out to places like churches, small groups, refugee camps, orphanages, youth camps, and family counseling centers to help others learn the inductive study method.

We establish people in God's Word by training up effective Bible study leaders and producing multi-week Bible study courses to be operated with trained leaders. The result is people of all ages knowing God better through personal and group Bible study using the proven Precept Bible Study Method used for over 50 years in 70 languages around the world. Every month, tens of thousands are being discipled through Precept. Their thirst for the Word is being quenched by being taught how to observe the Word through Inductive Bible Study, which is empowering people to discover truth for themselves, and the result is lives are being transformed.
