first year – freshman program

The First Year program at the Bible Institute is designed to help students lay a strong biblical foundation through Bible courses, intensive Bible study, evangelism opportunities and ministry assignments. It’s a year of building a strong foundation on God’s Word that will last a life-time.

second year – sophmore program

During our Second Year program at the Bible Institute, students take their faith even deeper. The program builds on classes and experiences that students had during their First Year including finishing important books like Genesis and Revelation. Students also learn important foundational truths such as Apologetics and how to reach other religions with the Gospel. The focus of our Second Year program is to develop powerful ministry skills in the lives of students.


These three focus areas work together to help you not just know the Bible better, but also learn how to live a meaningful and godly life – today and tomorrow.
