The purpose of this guide is to equip you, the leader, with the tools needed to facilitate meaningful discussions and encourage spiritual growth among the participants. 


Our Bible studies have the following sections:

  • Historical Notes
    These short snippets of information related to the study help to understand certain cultural or historical aspects of the passage. Familiarize yourself with these, and consider sharing them with the group.
  • Lessons
    The lessons begin with all the Bible text associated with the discussion questions. After the biblical text, there are 15 questions to go through, each with a verse reference to help participants know where to find the answer. The last question, labeled “Think About It,” is a salvation-related question with associated Bible verses.
  • Refresh
    At the end of each lesson is a section we call Refresh — a summary takeaway of the entire lesson.
  • Lesson Notes
    There is one page for taking notes.
  • Resources
    We have over 70 pages of resources included, ranging in topics from ”Who Is Jesus Christ” to ”How to Share the Gospel” to “Bible Reading Plans,” plus over 230 definitions of key Christian terminology.


Ideas for Bible study flow.

  • Prayer and Preparation
    Before each lesson, set aside time to pray for God’s guidance and wisdom in leading the study. Familiarize yourself with the passages and questions, ensure you can respond to each confidently, and prepare any additional resources that may enhance the study experience.
  • Opening Prayer and Worship
    Begin the study with prayer, asking the Holy Spirit to guide the study and to open hearts to receive God’s Word. Consider singing a worship song together to focus participants’ minds on Christ.
  • Scripture Reading and Questions
    As you go through each question, have everyone take turns reading the Bible passages aloud and let the group respond. Encourage each person to share their answers and thoughts, but ensure no one dominates the discussion — including you, the leader. Discuss how the passages can speak to our lives today to help us be more like Jesus, living in obedience to God. Encourage participants to share personal stories or experiences related to the verses and questions. Be prepared to gently steer the discussion back to the study questions if participants wander too far off-topic for too long.
  • Refresh
    Have the Refresh section read aloud at the end of each lesson to serve as a final takeaway summary.
  • Group Prayer
    At the end of the lesson, ask for any prayer requests, then have the group pray together out loud. Understand this may be uncomfortable for some people, but encourage them to say, at the very least, ”Thank You for today, God.” A Bible study group is a safe place where everyone should encourage and support one another, cultivating the practice of openly praying with others.
  • Final Prayer
    End the group prayer with a quick closing prayer, thanking God for His Word and asking for continued understanding and growth.
