Disciple Bible Study
Disciple Bible Studies have remained the #1 choice for some of the most vibrant congregations in the world — including ours — transforming the lives of more than two million participants worldwide!
Disciple Bible Study helps you put it all together and become familiar with the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. You’ll develop a "habit or spiritual discipline" of frequent Bible reading and be able to feel more comfortable in your level of Biblical understanding and follow other studies or sermons more clearly.
Through the study and meeting together in small groups, you’ll deepen connections with fellow disciples and grow in relationship with Christ.
This is a coed study, open to all adults. Find out what past participants are saying about Disciple.

Disciple 1 — Becoming Disciples Through Bible Study
Mondays, 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., starting September 14
Tuesdays, 9:30 – 11:30 a.m., starting September 15
Read the entire bible and gain a new and more complete understanding of God’s plan for us. Develop a more regular habit of reading scripture and get insight at weekly meetings through small group discussion and videos. Completing this study will help tie all other Bible studies you have done and will do together and provide you with a higher comfort level of your Biblical knowledge. This co-ed study runs from September to May. Groups can choose to stay together and pursue additional Disciple Bible Studies in subsequent years.
Jesus in the Gospels
Tuesdays, 9:30 – 11:30 a.m.
This study invites believers to encounter the Jesus who is both hard to ignore and hard to control, as portrayed in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Study manual content illuminates some aspects of the Jesus in the Gospels each week and connects Scripture to daily life and Jesus’ call to discipleship. The overarching aim is to deepen discipleship through better understanding of the biblical texts and their message. The study helps group members understand that Jesus is rooted in Judaism and the Scriptures of Judaism and that Christianity and the New Testament are rooted in the Scriptures of Judaism—our Old Testament.

“It was always difficult for me to find Jesus in the Old Testament. Through Disciple, I was able to see that He was there all along.” — Maggie Edgar, former Disciple student and leader
“I’ve done many Beth Moore studies, so many of the passages were familiar … but, never have I had such a sense of continuity between the Testaments as I did in this study!” — Gaye Craig
“One of the most important things I took away from the class is that Christ is the focal point of all scripture, not just the New Testament. I have a much deeper understanding of God’s word and the relevance of all scripture for my life.” — Ken Martin
“Bible study is the foundation for becoming a mature Christian, and we found that the Disciple Bible Study was the best way for us as a couple to mature in our faith together. Working through it together, we gained better insights into the Bible’s teachings.” — Ken and Marcia Hamby
“Disciple Bible study and the videos have been an inspiration. I have taken many Bible studies (all through the Methodist church) over the years. This by far is my favorite … I find it to be closer to ‘Bible teaching’ than any other study.” — Deedra Joseph
