Biblical Studies

Training Apostolic young people with the necessary tools for effective ministry.

The Biblical Studies department and Theology program at Indiana Bible College are focused on the process of training Apostolic ministry with the necessary tools for effective ministry. Now is the time for us to answer the call, to be motivated, equipped and deployed into our world to show the power of Apostolic doctrine and truth to redeem this broken world we live in!

What is the value of a Christian Bible college education? It protects your generation from falling prey to false ideas that are exalted against the knowledge of Christ. It gives primacy to the voices of the Apostles and Christ. That is worth paying any price for, even with your very life.

The challenge of finding ways to equip young people who are passionate about their call to ministry, and to prepare them for the work of God, is both urgent and very real. However, you must not allow any cultural challenges to make you surrender your needed training in Apostolic truth and doctrine.

When I came to Indiana Bible College all I had was a call from God. Indiana Bible College equipped me with a burden, a passion and the tools to take that call of God and enter the ministry better prepared.”

Class of 2018
In the Theology program at Indiana Bible College, you will be studying the distinctives of Apostolic doctrine including the Doctrine of Salvation, the Oneness of God, Christian Worldview, Holiness, the Doctrine of the Spirit and other basic essentials equipping you to handle objections to our biblical beliefs. Further, you will be exposed to other classes like Science and the Bible dealing with modern objections to the Bible and Christianity. Classes such as Systematic Theology 1 and 2 show the interconnectedness of all we say about God and His Word, while classes such as Contemporary Theology highlight where we are today in terms of the current wider theology of the world and how we got there. Classes such as Apologetics, Archeology and the Bible, Religion Analysis and more show the best ways to reach the world we live in today with the truth of God’s Word.

At Indiana Bible College, our Theology Department equips students to be effective in the following roles: pastor, assistant pastor, youth pastor, evangelist, Bible teacher or instructor, outreach and evangelism coordinator, Sunday school director, author and more. This is shown to be true by the myriad of alumni filling these positions across our movement.

The value of a Christian Bible college education is manifold. Apostolic distinctives equip you with biblical truth that provides the understanding you need in order to have a powerful impact in the lives of your generation. In a very real sense these truths bring to your time the possibility of Apostolic revival. The value? Priceless.
