  discover God and His salvation.
 The method used is simple Inductive Bible Study

   How can we help meet the needs expressed? (Ministry)
 Accountability
   With whom did you share last week’s lesson? (Evangelism)
   How did you apply what you learned last week? (Obedience)
DBS Elements
 Bible Study –
  1. Just read or listen to the focal verses (Don’t explain or teach)
      For pre-believers you will start with Creation and work through Bible to
       Christ, focusing on the attributes of God
      For new believers you will start with commands of Christ
      Focus is on the Scripture, not human opinion
  2. How would you restate this in your own words?
    (Understanding the Scripture)
     If they significantly mis-state anything important – ask where did the
       scripture say that…? Your hope is for the group to start asking these
       questions as you go further in the process. (Group Self-correction)
