ABC's Approach

The Associate of Arts in Biblical Studies is specifically designed for students with vocational goals outside the realm of Bible College training who want a solid Bible foundation and a Christian orientation to life. The degree is designed for students who are unsure about their direction and who want the assistance of a Christian institution of higher learning as they seek to discern the Lord's will in their lives, or students who want to be involved as a lay person in their churches or in Christian ministry that does not require a full bachelor's degree.
