It makes sense that a Bible College would offer a Bible Theology Degree, right? As Christians, our faith, beliefs, and very lives are centered around the teachings of the Bible. However, to grow and learn as Christians, and to become the servant leaders we are meant to be, our foundation of faith is greatly strengthened with a Bible Theology degree.
If your future plans include church ministry, seminary or teaching, in order to get the most of God's Word, you must read the Bible in its historical, cultural and literary contexts. In order to instruct thoroughly and effectively on the Bible today, you must learn how Christian thought has developed throughout history.
By earning a Bible Theology Degree you will immerse yourself in biblical content and major doctrines of the Word of God, leading to greater spiritual maturity. Our world needs educated leaders to lead us through the mixed messages of the media, politics and the internet to better be able to discern God's plan.
