Precept Ministries Comes to CHBC

I want to invite CHBC, and anyone near Cedar Falls/Waterloo, Iowa to Precept Ministry’s inductive bible study workshop taking place September 23-24, 2011.

Matthew 28:19–20 (ESV) — Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.

We, at CHBC, recognize the importance of being disciples who make disciples. We can think of no more valuable way in which a disciple of Jesus Christ could spend their time than learning to read, study, and apply God’s Word to their lives.

Yet, learning to study the Bible, and learning God’s commands, and even doing God’s commands are not the ultimate goal of a disciple of Jesus Christ. Rather, Jesus’ disciples are called to be disciple-making disciples. Specifically this looks like: disciples learning to read, study, and apply God’s Word to their lives, in order that they might disciple another of Jesus’ disciples how to read, study, and apply God’s Word to their lives. Who, in turn, can be a disciple-making disciples themselves.

This is the thrust of 2 Timothy 2:1–2 (ESV) — You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus, 2 and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.

We have an opportunity as a local body of believers to be instructed how to read, study, and apply God’s Word to our lives, in order that “what we have heard in the presence of many witness we can entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach other also.”
