Companions in Christ
CIC is a 28-session journey that moves through five parts: Christian journey, scripture, prayer, call, and spiritual guidance. Through the journey, you will:
- explore the depths of Scripture, learn to listen to God through it, and allow your life to be shaped by the Word;
- experience new dimensions of prayer, try fresh ways of opening to God, and learn what it means to practise the presence of God;
- reflect on Christ’s call in your life and discover anew the gifts that God is giving you for living out your personal ministry;
- grow together with fellow participants as a Christian community and gain skills in learning how small groups in the church become settings for spiritual guidance.
The success of the main CIC programme has led the course originators to introduce the following shorter modules:
- Exploring the Way (7 sessions)
- The Way of Forgiveness (9 sessions)
- The Way of Blessedness (10 sessions)
- The Way of Grace (10 sessions)
- The Way of Prayer (11 sessions)
- The Way of Discernment (11 sessions)
- The Way of Scripture (8 sessions)
- The Way of Transforming Discipleship (7 sessions)
The Discipleship & Nurture (D&N) Committee has offered the first two shorter modules and will be starting two classes on The Way of Blessedness next year. Other than Exploring the Way, which is open to all, the other seven shorter modules are only open to those who have completed the main 28-session CIC programme.
The entire CIC series focuses on participants' experiences of God and discovery of spiritual practices that help them to share more fully in the life of Christ. It aims to help participants grow spiritually by enabling them to immerse themselves through the spiritual disciplines of prayer, scripture, ministry, worship, study and Christian conversation.
All the resources in the series explore classic spiritual practices and invite participants to develop daily patterns that open their lives to more authentic and deeper relationships with God and with one another.
Once a Companion, always a Companion!
DISCIPLE is a four phased Bible Study programme that aims to transform lives, not merely to be informative of God’s Word. Living transformed lives means we grow from the infancy of just being believers to the maturity of becoming disciples. After all, Jesus commanded us to “make disciples of all nations”, and to do so requires of us to become disciples ourselves.
Truly, “If you make my word your home, you will indeed be my disciples.” (John 8:31, NJB)
Precept@WesleyPrecept@Wesley offers Inductive Bible Study courses such as Precept Upon Precept, that are ideal for participants who want to have a more in-depth study of God’s Word, and gain confidence in self-discovery of God Word rather than heavy reliance on Bible commentaries.
Our mission is ‘to engage our students in inductive Bible study so as to have a deeper relationship with God’.
Precept Upon Precept
Hands on in-depth study of each book of the Bible.
Participants will learn how to use Inductive Bible Study Method (IBS method) to discover God’s truth for themselves.
The 3 steps in the IBS method are Observation, Interpretation and Application.
The Observation and Interpretation steps include:
- asking the 5Ws and an 1H, marking key words and phrases in the Scripture text, chapter theme, making lists
- checking the original Hebrew / Greek meaning of certain words using blueletterbible.com, cross-references for context and full
counsel of the Word of God
Accurate Observation leads to correct Interpretation, which can then lead to the proper Application of God’s Word.Each study includes the complete text of the book(s) being studied, relevant maps, charts, and timelines, and approximately five hours of homework per week.
