Is it really possible to get a quality Bible College Education for free? Well, yes! I have never posted an article about our education curriculum before so I thought I’d do one now to introduce our free Biblical Studies Certificate program to those who were not aware of it.
The Biblical Studies Certificate Program is comprised of out 20 course core curriculum required of all our students no matter what program they apply for. This program, and many others we offer, are designed and developed to bring God’s Word to you in a way that is easy to understand and filled with the truth of His Word.
We do not take things out of context without explaining why and only for a purpose that will educate the deeper truths to the student. This rarely happens because we want you to know God’s truth, not ours. It is, as we say, God’s way or the highway.
Like Jesus, we will continue to spread God’s Kingdom through testimony and knowledge. We are to be the example of The Example, Jesus Christ. To do that, we must follow in His steps and not lead with our own. We lead through example. We lead by loving others the way Jesus loves us. We live a life of service through lifestyle, words, and actions.
This is what we teach in our studies. Although we have different concentrations like evangelism, youth ministries, counseling, and theology, we always hold the standards of Jesus throughout.
We offer two (2) programs right now with more coming in the near future. The first is the basic Biblical Studies curriculum that is required for any and all programs offered here at In His Name (IHN) Bible College. This a curriculum of 20 courses designed to get the student familiar with the Bible, God’s plan for them, and further studies here at IHN Bible College.
The second program we offer is the Bachelor of Biblical Studies (B.B.S.) Degree. This is a curriculum of 10 courses designed to enhance the student’s knowledge of Scripture and prepare them for a missions based life of serving others through the love of Jesus Christ.
Where does the free come in? It is the basic program that is completely free. The core curriculum, as stated before, is the core requirement for any and all programs offered through IHN Bible College. We are giving these 20 courses to you for free. When you complete these courses you will earn a Certificate of Completion in Biblical Studies. Once you are done, if you want, you may enroll into the Bachelor of Biblical Studies program which consist of 10 additional and more in depth courses. These course come at a cost of $750. That means you get a Bachelor of Biblical Studies Degree for only $750.
This cost can be less depending on the payment plan you select. The first is the Full Payment plan. If you select to pay the full amount up front we will reduce your payment to just $500. That’s a $250 savings. The second payment option is the Scheduled Payment option which allows you to pay $25 a month for 24 months. This option gives you a savings of $150. The last option is the Any Amount At Any Time option. Just as it says you can pay any amount you wish at any time you like until the balance is paid in full.
Once you complete your studies and the full amount due has been paid you will receive your Bachelor of Biblical Studies Degree.
We are currently developing a number of Master’s Degrees we hope to have online in the next year or so. We will be offering several concentrations from Childhood Education to World Evangelism. We intend to offer these degrees as inexpensively as we have done for our current program.
To do this, we need financial support. The costs of the programs help offset our expenses but we have yet to get ahead of the costs. We are still paying much more than what is coming in. This is why it is so much of a blessing when people do donate even the smallest amount. If you are not going to apply for a degree program then perhaps you will consider donation a few dollars to help offset our costs.
No matter what you decide, we need your prayers mare than anything else. Pray for our school, pray for the contributors, but most of all, pray for the students, that God will use them to His glory.
I pray that God richly bless you will a heart of ministry to the world and a desire to reach it with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Amen!
