c-bible study basics

It cannot  be overemphasized how important God Word, the Bible, is to the Christian life, and to the churches.  For that reason, Faith is totally dedicated to seeking to provide the tools that will make the people “Bible experts.”

LOGOS BIBLE SOFTWARE is available to every member of Faith Baptist Church.  It is the premier Bible resource software.  Once a month the pastor hosts a training session at his home to help anyone learn to master this software.

Faith has adopted the INDUCTIVE BIBLE STUDY PHILOSOPHY of the Precept Ministry as outlined in the book, “How to Study Your Bible.”  (See “Study Resoruce” link).

The basic concepts of INDUCTIVE BIBLE STUDY are:

1.  OBSERVE THE SCRIPTURES- Seek to discover what the Bible is saying.

2.  INTERPRET THE SCRIPTURES - Seek to discover whatthe Bible means.

3.  APPLY THE SCRIPTURES - Seek to discover how it can be applied to life.

The GREAT COMMSION given to all believers by the Lord Jesus Christ (Matt. 28:18-20) is to MAKE DISCIPLES.  That can only be accomplished through a continual focus on God’s Word:

What is a DISCIPLE?  It is not simply a believer, but Jesus describes a disciple as someone “who continues in my word . . .”

“Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;   And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

John 8:31-32
