Biblical Studies Concentration

Bible Correspondence Courses which can be Applied Toward an Online Bible Degree

Biblical studies distance learning

We invite you to experience the life-changing power of the voice of God, which is the central focus of our unique Bible training program, built around practical Bible correspondence courses which you can apply toward an online Bible degree. “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path” wrote the psalmist (Ps. 119:105). Paul taught that these things are written as examples for us, so we can choose the way we will live (1 Cor. 10:6).

 

The classes have been beyond anything I had hoped for. This has been more like an adventure than school.

Vanessa Tinsley-Stone

 

Bible study with a difference

The purpose of these Bible study courses is to acquaint you with the Bible, in such a way that it gives you insight on how to effectively live your life. You will be trained how to allow the Holy Spirit, Who is the Author of the Scriptures, to illumine them once again to your heart and life. You will learn to discover for yourself, under the tutelage of the Holy Spirit, the truth the Scriptures have to offer. The goal of all Bible study is a transformed life and a changed heart, specifically “love from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith” (1 Tim. 1:5).

 

Biblical studies online degrees

The courses listed below may be taken as a Biblical Studies Certificate or applied as a major concentration toward any of the following online Bible degrees:

Additional work is required when an undergraduate-level course is taken on the graduate level. Course substitutions and combining major concentrations are possible when working toward a Bible degree online or by correspondence. Discuss these options with the Dean. The key is to follow God’s passion within your heart. Students in the Master’s and Doctoral programs earn approximately 30 credits for each degree from specific courses, and the remaining 10 credits by doing practical ministry work and earning “practica” credits.

REN103 Communion With God (Course Syllabus)

3 credits

$342.84

REN503 Communion With God Graduate (Course Syllabus) 4 credits $445.78

Have you ever wished you could sit down and have a long talk with the Lord? When you're worried or confused, wouldn't you love to see the situation from His perspective and hear how He wants you to respond? When things don't seem to be going your way and your prayers aren't answered the way you had hoped, wouldn't it be great to hear Him tell you where He is in the midst of it, and what He is working out in your life?

Jesus promised that "My sheep hear My voice" (Jn. 10:27). If you are one of His sheep, then He is speaking to you and you are hearing His voice! The problem is that we have not learned how to recognize His voice and differentiate it from all of the other voices that bombard our hearts and minds. This course will help you discern the voice of the Lord within your heart, clearly and consistently, leading to a deeper intimacy with Him as well as greater faith, hope and joy. Your life will be transformed!

“I'm taking Communion With God. I am so blessed so far. My life is already completely transformed. I went from hearing God speak to me once in a while to hearing Him not just in my journaling times but even throughout the rest of the day. What a difference this has made.”

— Andrew Steck

 

“We have been using Communion With God for some months now in all our home groups and one after another people whose prayer lives were dry difficult affairs have blossomed as they have heard the Heavenly Father commune with them, His children.”

— Rev. Bill A. VanZutphen,
Baptist Church, Wollongong, Australia

 

“Oh my, I am speechless...I have completed only the first several lessons in Communion With God and my life has been totally, totally transformed. He is such a wonderful, wonderful God. A few months ago I told Him I was desperate for more of Him...I had no idea His answer to my prayer would be so exceedingly abundantly above anything I could ever have imagined. My days and nights are now filled with His presence. Thank you for your service to Him, Mr. Virkler. I will be in touch as I progress through the course....”

— Amy
