First Year

Laying a strong foundation






The first year at the Bible Institute is all about building a strong foundation of faith. First year students spend the majority of their time diving deep into the Bible in order to develop a strong knowledge of the Scriptures, explore the roots of the Christian faith, understand prophecy and gain the necessary tools to become effective servants of Christ. After completing training during the first part of the semester, students also participate in weekend evangelism trips to nearby neighborhoods to share the Gospel with lost and hurting people.

All students who complete year one are honored at graduation with a Bible certificate.
