Earn A Biblical Degree

Internet Bible College allows people of all ages to pursue a biblical degree at their own pace, and in their own place.  From any device you can access our biblical curriculum to pursue a bachelor’s, master’s or doctorate.  

Start A Bible College

Starting your own bible college might seem like an unrealistic vision.  We make it easy for you to start your very own bible college.  With a ready-made biblical curriculum and other resources at your disposal, you can focus on growing discipleship, and studying God’s word! We find that small groups, bible study groups, small campus churches, multip-campus churches, megachurches, and even entire denominations benefit from our flexible and supportive programs.

Distance Education Bible College

Vision Colleges is a distance education bible college offering accredited and recognised study programs.  Our qualifications and awards range from certificates to PhD degrees in Theology.

Independent and Non-Denominational

The college is independent and non-denominational.  We are Pentecostal/Charismatic in flavour.  Our preference for Biblical theology is attractive to both denominational and independent churches alike and ideally suited to personal ministry.

Self-Paced and Flexible Courses

Learn at your own pace from your own place with a flexible program tailored to your requirements.  You can fulfil your ministry training or personal study needs without leaving home or work or your ministry.

Local Church Partnerships

In addition, we establish Local Church Bible Colleges empowering the local church ministry team to train and develop their members for ministry in their community and the world beyond. Our role is to bring sound theological education and ministerial training to people who cannot attend a centralised higher education institution.

Resources For Your Biblical Education

Vision Colleges is the umbrella body for the Internet Bible College, Vision Christian College, Vision International College. We are an extension of Vision International University (VIU) and the Texas University of Theology (TXUT).   This mix of options makes Vision Colleges the among the best and most flexible Bible colleges on or off the internet.

Our studies are available to individuals as a distance education programme or to local churches to establish their own bible college, ministry training centre or for small study groups.

Through Vision Colleges, we offer Recognised (Non-Accredited) awards from Certificate in Biblical studies to Diploma in Biblical Theology as a college.

Through Vision International College, we offer Accredited (VIC) studies in Christian Ministry and Theology from Certificate III to Graduate Diploma in Christian Ministry and theology.  Our accreditation is with the Australian Skills Quality Authority ASQA.

Through our universities, we offer degrees from the Bachelor’s Completion to a Doctoral programme.

Our Role

Pursuing A Biblical Education At Your Local Church

We Train People At Their Local Church

While we admire and endorse the efforts of traditional Bible Colleges and Seminaries, we are deeply committed to the concept of training people within the walls of their local church and the provision of excellent teaching material and study options for Christians everywhere. We treat the entire local church environment as part of our educational activity: it’s worship, it’s witness, it’s fellowship, it’s teaching, it’s ministry – are all reckoned to be part of the training process of equipping men and women to serve Christ.

"Vision has helped us to train church planters to penetrate the unreached people groups of this part of the world. In 2003, with the help of Vision, 482 trained men and women started new churches, penetrating 28 unreached people groups for the first time. One of the greatest needs in Africa today is for trained national leadership, and I believe that Vision is one of the primary tools God is using to see this need fulfilled."

Rev. Steven Mills Global 12 Project, West Africa

"Vision is not only a charter member of ACEA, but it is highly regarded by all of the other educators as a forerunner in the whole area of apostolic education. I commend Dr. Stan DeKoven and his whole leadership team for their living example of equipping the saints for the work of the ministry."

Dr.  C. Peter Wagner
Apostolic Council for Educational Accountability (ACEA)

"I have been privileged to speak at a conference for Vision International University and to work with Dr. Stan DeKoven. I have seen firsthand the classes and have heard several of the teachers as I sat in on their classes. One of the most impressive aspects of this school is its diversity of constituents and the expanse of its outreach. In addition, I have been impressed with their ability to work through the Internet to reach people all over the world. Dr. DeKoven has been in the forefront of understanding that we must bring education and training to the students, rather than just bringing the students to a school. I am also impressed with the biblical convictions and approaches that VIU takes toward the student. I believe that they go beyond passing on information to produce formation in the lives of those who are taught. I wholeheartedly recommend VIU as both academic and accessible."

Rev. Charles Simpson,
Charles Simpson Ministries

"Vision has been a blessing to me personally to earn my degrees and also it was a tremendous blessing to the ministries I oversee in the United States and Africa. We were able to start [a Vision program] in a church I used to pastor, and in Nigeria, Cameroon, and in Ghana. It has helped people all over the world to gain a better knowledge of the Word of God so they can fulfil the call of God on their life."

Dr. Anthony Spero
Faith Fellowship World Outreach Ministry

"Vision opened up a door for my continuing education and I benefited greatly. I strongly commend the program to other ministers and leaders who want to learn and grow; it will help you to do just that, to better equip you for service to help you reach your goals in life."
