Course Descriptions

Acts, The Book of

The Book of Acts links the ministry of Jesus and the start of Christianity. The objective of this course is to trace the development of the Early Church after the resurrection of Christ and study the impact of Jesus' ministry to and through the early disciples.

Church Government

This course will help you understand the five-fold ministry and its characteristics. It also teaches you the biblical structure for churches and reviews the offices of bishops, pastors, elders, and deacons in the church.


To help the students develop an understanding that teaching should change lives and develop a passion to communicate by an understanding of laws that create success in themselves as teachers as well as in their classroom.

Bible Doctrines I

With the "winds of doctrine" that blow across the church world today, a solid theology consisting of the major doctrines of Christianity is needed.  This course gives special consideration to Bibliology, the study of the Bible; the study of God; anthropology, the study of man; hamartiology, they study of sin; and soteriology, the study of salvation.

Bible Doctrines II

This class is a continuation of the first-year course "Bible Doctrines." It examines the major Christian denominations found in the United States of America and focuses on their history, beliefs, and practices. At the completion of the course, students will know the answer to the question, "What is the difference between my church and the _______ church?"

Defending the Faith

Students learn  ways to respond to arguments against Christianity, and the route taken will depend on the kind of objections raised.


This course delves into the Book of Ephesians and unveils the “mystery of the church” as no other epistle. Students see how God’s secret intention is revealed to form a body to express Jesus’ fullness on earth, by uniting one group of people, and to equip, empower, and mature the people to the end that they extend Jesus’ victory over evil.


This course explores different strategies and motivations for evangelistic efforts. Special attention is given to developing proper methods of evangelism while maintaining the true message of the Gospel. The course emphasizes the necessity of the fruit of the Spirit for daily Christian living and witnessing.


This course establishes a solid foundation of the biblical tenants of faith and righteousness, and exercises and increases one’s faith in God. Examines how to apply that faith to one’s personal and ministerial experience.

I Corinthians

An expository study of the Book of First Corinthians. This course examines the social and spiritual climate of the church of Corinth and the events that led up to Paul’s correspondence to the Corinthian believers. Includes examination of the problems and challenges that can occur within a local church body as well as the scriptural solutions for these problems and challenges.

II Corinthians

An expository study of the Book of Second Corinthians.  Examines the social and spiritual climate of the church of Corinth and the events that led up to Paul’s correspondence to the Corinthian believers.


The Apostle Paul wrote this epistle to refute the perverted gospel of the Judaizers and establish the truth of the Gospel of grace. The Judaizers' teaching was a mixture of law and grace, faith and works, and Moses and Jesus. Paul uses an allegory to illustrate the Old and New Covenants. He also shows that Christian liberty is neither legalism nor license.

Healing For the Body

Physical healing is the right and privilege of every believer. This course is designed to provide an overview of the basic methods through which healing is obtained. Special attention is given to the subject of faith—specifically, how the basics of faith can be practically applied to obtain physical healing.

The course in Homiletics is designed to be a course 36 hours in length where the student’s primary mode of learning is through practicing what is being taught. The first half of the course focuses on instruction; the rest of the course focuses on the giving of sermons. This course is designed for each student to give a total of three to five speeches or sermons.  

Introduction to Biblical Counseling

This course provides an overview of biblical based Christian counselling. Students are introduced to God’s method for making His children whole and explore how to help individuals overcome the problems in their lives that are hindering them. This course deals with issues of self-worth, which underlies most psychological problems.

Leadership Principles

This course studies the subject of leadership, exposes you to potential weaknesses you may have concerning leadership, and teaches how to turn those weaknesses into strengths. Encourages you to apply each of the leadership laws as building blocks to success in life.

Life of Christ I

Provides an outline of the life and teachings of Jesus and surveys the order of the events in His earthly ministry. This course covers the deity of Jesus, His birth, His childhood, and His final days in Jerusalem.

Life of Christ II

A continuation of Life of Christ I.

Ministerial Ethics 

This course takes an intensive look at ministerial ethics, both biblical and practical. It synthesizes and outlines the history and relevance of ethics to equip students to fulfill their potential in ministry. Special focus is given to financial, moral, and professional ethics.

New Testament Survey I

This is a comprehensive study of the books of the New Testament, including the authors of each book, background information of the author and the book, and the emphasis of each book.

New Testament Survey II

A more in-depth study of each book of the New Testament.

Old Testament Survey I

A historical survey of the Old Testament. Special attention is given to the cultural background, the theological and contextual perspectives, and the practical application of major Old Testament themes.

Old Testament Survey II

A historical survey of the Old Testament. Special attention is given to the cultural background, the theological and contextual perspectives, and the practical application of major Old Testament themes.

Power of Prayer

This course is an in-depth study of 30 different types of prayer. You will have a clearer view about how you are praying and how you can pray more effectively in your daily life.


This course examines the Book of Romans and the justification through faith, not works, the workings of the cycle of sin and death and how it affects believers at all levels of faith. Also, how to escape from its influence, to understand the personal consecration to God in view of His mercies, and to understand both the liberty we have through grace and the responsibilities we have toward weaker believers.

Spiritual Gifts

Each student will receive an awareness of and appreciation for the diversity of gifts which God has set in the Church. Students will come to understand the similarities and differences among ministry offices. They will receive insight into the purposes of these ministries, how each operates, and what each particular gift contributes to the Body of Christ.

Spiritual Warfare

As a Christian, we fight spiritual enemies with spiritual weapons. This study provides information about the different enemies Christians battle and about each weapon and how they should be used.

Systematic Theology I

Introduction to how theology can affect your life and how it's applied.

Systematic Theology II

A continuation of the study of theology and how it is applied to the life of believers.

Teaching Principles

Students learn how to use a great spiritual weapon.  That weapon is the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God (Ephesians 6:17). 

The Holy Spirit

This course examines the nature and personality of the Holy Spirit.  It discusses the titles given the Holy Spirit and emblems which represent Him.  Both reveal much about His ministry.  The purposes, gifts, and fruit of the Holy Spirit are examined in detail.
