Initial Courses

The following are our top five courses which we recommend new students start with. REN103 Communion With God is required as the first course for all new students. (Find out why.) You can order any or all of the other courses listed below by clicking the check-box next to each course. Your credit card will be charged the appropriate amount in addition to your application fee.

REN103 Communion With God
3 credits
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!
LEA103 Gifted to Succeed
3 credits
“To each of us grace has been given according to the measure of Christ’s gift…And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers for the equipping of the saints.” Do you know which of these heart motivations God has given to you? Is God calling you to express this heart motivation within or outside the structured church, or both? Which ministry or vocation is He asking you to express yourself through? What kinds of people do you need next to you to make you most effective? These questions and many others will be answered.
BUS102 Fulfill Your Financial Destiny
3 credits
This course will give you Scriptural support for the belief that God delights in the prosperity of His children (Ps. 35:27). It is His desire that we lend and not borrow. We are to be the head and not the tail, above and not underneath (Deut. 28:12,13). God Himself teaches us to profit (Is. 48:17) and has given us the power to make wealth (Deut. 8:18). Several hundred verses on silver and gold will be examined, along with a philosophy concerning money, showing that we are to create and release wealth into the kingdom of God.NOTE: This course includes a book that is only available right now as a PDF ebook download. Please choose a different course if that presents a problem for you.
HEA102 Take Charge of Your Health
3 credits
We have a covenant of health with our God, which is based on four prerequisites (Ex. 15:26). One of these is to keep all His statutes. In this course, we will learn the statutes of God which will keep us from cancer and the other “Black Plagues” of our century. We need not die prematurely if we become responsible by keeping God’s simple health commands.
WOR101 Believer’s Worship I
3 credits
In this course, students will discover the priority of worship in God’s economy. They will learn what worship is, how they can become worshipers, and what their responsibilities are as worshipers. The “new song” will be examined, as well as praise in the life of Jesus. Finally, they will learn how to recognize and live in the presence of God through worship.
