Bible and Theology offers you the most intensive study in Old and New Testament courses, biblical languages and narrative and historical approaches to theology. You’ll focus on developing your mind and intellect while building a scriptural foundation to prepare you for graduate studies or for additional seminary work in pastoral ministry, youth ministry or Christian education.
This program also consists of fewer credit hours, so it allows you the time for a double major, combining
Bible and Theology with a study in another interest or discipline.
There are many scholarship opportunities for Bible and Theology majors. In fact, all freshmen receive a $2,500 scholarship once they pass the Introduction to Ministry course. We also have a separate Ministry Student Scholarship Program as well as General Ministry Scholarships ranging from $1,000-$3,000 per yearfor sophomores, juniors and seniors.
"My favorite class has been Systematic Theology. I felt like this class attributed to the further continuation of my academic range of topics as well as the ability to engage with other denominations."
“The Bible provides the foundation for everything we believe and teach. But most importantly, it helps us to know God personally.”
Jim Edlin, PhD
