The ABC Advantage

In 62 credit hours you will greatly expand your knowledge of the Bible and Theology. In addition, you will complete select General Education courses from a biblical worldview—a benefit unavailable from a community college or secular university.

ABC's accreditation means that you are receiving a quality education as well as the ability to transfer your credits to other institutions if you choose to continue your education elsewhere.

Why an Associate of Arts?

God's leading for each individual varies; just look around you at the Body of Christ. The accredited Associate of Arts degree at Appalachian Bible College is best for you if:

  • you want to seek God's will before declaring a major
  • you desire to serve more effectively as a lay person in your local church
  • you plan to enter a ministry that does not require a bachelor's degree
  • you want to gain a solid Bible foundation in a godly atmosphere before moving to a liberal arts college for further studies.
