Expand Your Knowledge and Service Through Recognised and Accredited Biblical Study

In this world of chaos and uncertainty, there are several valid reasons for studying the bible or pursuing a bible college education. It could be that you want to know more, to strengthen your relationship with God, perhaps you’ve been called upon to assist with outreach or counselling, or maybe you’ve long felt a spiritual calling.

You may not have had much exposure to biblical or doctrinal teachings. However, as you will have heard it said by evangelist Smith Wigglesworth, ‘God does not call the equipped; He equips the called.’ In this case, why not enable and empower yourself in the Word through our convenient online biblical study courses?

What Sets Our Bible Courses Apart?

 

Overarchingly, our philosophy is to make genuine and legitimate materials readily accessible to our students, resource centres and The Church. We provide God-based education, underpinned by a robust theological foundation, which provides principles of inquiry and interpretation to equip our students for lifelong curiosity, exploration, and the tools to ‘apply truth to life’.

Distance, Self-Paced Learning

A forerunner of study via distance bible schools, we offer bible study online courses, allowing you to learn from the comfort of your home, and at your own speed. We have designed our courses for completion within one year, but our flexible schedule accommodates your individual pace and time requirements. This remote learning approach means less pressure and the ability to study while working, whether in the ministry or elsewhere. Most of our students appreciate and prefer this option. However, for those who enjoy physically attending bible classes, we offer resource centres across more than 150 nations across the globe in churches of various denominations.

A Stepping Stone Toward Getting Your Biblical Degree

Through our association and collaboration with Vision International University and the Texas University of Theology, we offer you the opportunity to gain your Bachelor, Masters and Doctorate degrees without the inconvenience of changing schools.

The Convenience of Online Bible Courses

Beyond bringing our online bible courses to wherever in the world you are, completing our courses is time-friendly and affordable. You pick the streams and subjects you prefer, and you pay as you go only for those topics selected. We also make enrolling easier by acknowledging previous qualifications and skills gained through authentic experience as part of Life Ministry Skills or Recognised Prior Learning. These rightfully contribute to your Vision Bible College qualification.

Support To Establish Your Locally-Run Bible College

In addition, we structure our church-based resource centres to educate our enrolled students and assist you, communities and congregations in setting up locally run bible study groups and colleges directly linked to our ecosystem. Our current network consists of over 4 000 satellite groups across more than 120 nations, and our fond hope is to welcome as many as possible to join our dedicated mission.

Recognised Biblical Studies Course Options at Vision Colleges

We offer both recognised and accredited bible studies courses. Recognised qualifications boost your opportunities and qualify you for general career choices such as business, IT or the media. In contrast, accredited qualifications are required for certain highly responsible professions to demonstrate required skill levels, such to become a lawyer, engineer, doctor, dentist or surgeon.

Recognised Course Option

Our recognised course option allows you to pick and choose between subjects to create an individualised curriculum. We recommend you begin with the foundational stream and then mix and match from there. You can rotate between any of the streams; however, we require you to have a minimum of two years of bible studies behind you before embarking on the counselling stream to ensure a wealth of knowledge to support you in your counselling endeavour.

Recognised Study Streams

Choose from over 100 topics within eight study streams, including foundational (covering dynamic Christian foundations and foundations of faith), biblical (21 subjects), Christian living (15 subjects including intercessory prayer, spiritual warfare and supernatural living), The Church (11 subjects), doctrinal (25 subjects including faith dynamics, angelology, demonology), mission (12 subjects), and counselling studies (13 subjects including topics such as addiction, healing, parenting, crises, family and marriage counselling).
