Purpose and Objectives

   The Bachelor of Arts Degree in Bible is designed to train students to know the Word of God. The program provides a solid foundation for the teaching of spiritual truth, which will lead not only to the proper understanding of God's Word, but also to the proper application of God's Word in students' lives. Students may pursue full-time Christian service in the local church, mission field, Christian schools and colleges, and other Christian organizations after their training.

Upon completion of the program, the student will be able to:
  1. Exhibit knowledge of the doctrine and content of the Scriptures.
  2. Demonstrate skills in disciple-making and evangelism.
  3. Use experience and exposure from various types of ministries.

Note: All Bible Degree Candidates will be required to pass an oral Bible and Theology exam covering the following areas: Old Testament, New Testament, Church History, and Bible Doctrines. The format of the exam will be that of an ordination council. For more information about the exam, contact the Academic Dean.
