Biblical Studies

All Majors


Our mission is to provide you with a foundational knowledge of the language, history, literature, and theology of the Old and New Testaments in order to educate students to become servants of Christ to make a difference in today's world. Coursework in biblical studies is central to the our curriculum. With a degree in Biblical Studies, you will be able to read the Scriptures in Greek and Hebrew, understand biblical content and grasp the major doctrines of the Word of God.

All of this is in service of greater spiritual maturity exercising itself in love for God and love for other people. The flexibility of electives within this major will enable you to design a program in line with your ministry objectives.

Our Commitment to You

Dr. Ken Turner teaching Bible class
We commit to provide you with a thorough education in both languages and content of Scripture within the context of a biblical worldview. We want you to know about rich heritage of the interpretation of the Bible in the past as well as the major current trends today.
We are excited about helping you discover and develop your own special gifts and to understand how they fit into God's will for your life. And we can do that in the context of individual mentoring and community study.
We will work you hard and demand a lot–and we think you'll be happily surprised at the result. Our desire is to help you be a good and faithful steward of God's Word.
