We are partnering with Moody Bible Institute’s Distance Learning program to offer up to 18 units of credit. Our Elements of Bible Study, Major Prophets, Pauline Epistles and Israel Prep classes make up 12 of those units. All students will take these classes, and if they choose to pay the Moody tuition at $220 per unit, they can receive up to 12 fully accredited, transferable units of Bible credit. Most Bible colleges and Christian universities will accept these as part of their Bible requirements, and some liberal arts universities will accept them as open elective credits. Credit is dependent on how they do in the class. Students may choose two of four additional 3 unit courses that they may complete on their own time for a potential total of 18 units.

Theology

Mandatory class. Not eligible for credits.

it means to be a Christian but that they would own their faith and practically live out what Jesus
describes in the Bible as being a disciple. This is not a quest for knowledge; it is an opportunity
for students to own their faith and strive to understand the heart of God and what he desires from
his people.
