Associate of Arts in Biblical Studies

The Associate of Arts in Biblical Studies Degree Completion Plan offers a comprehensive curriculum encompassing Basic to Intermediate Biblical Studies, Christian Apologetics, Evangelism, Old and New Testament Textual Studies, Christian Theology, Church History, and Islamic Studies. It is designed for those seeking a foundational and conservative approach to Scripture, following a literal interpretation. This program is free with a twofold purpose,

  • First, to prepare you for a Bible college or seminary degree.
  • Second, to prepare you for working for God in some church, ministry, or ministry you start. See below.

It’s essential to recognize that the following Associate of Arts in Biblical Studies Degree Completion Plan is a general outline and not specific to any particular institution. This plan is designed to incorporate the stated focus areas and is grounded in a conservative, literal, and Historical-Grammatical approach to Scripture. If you are using this program to prepare for Bible college or seminary, there is another three-fold purpose to consider.

  • First, you may or may not know almost all Bible colleges or seminaries in the world are liberal to moderate, not conservative. You need to have a solid conservative foundation if you want to have conservative values after your degree.
  • Second, it will give you foundational knowledge that will help you get better grades at the educational institution you plan to attend.
  • Third, it can prepare your child or you as a parent to help your child maintain their conservative beliefs and values when they go away to a college or university to get a degree.
