We have three programs of study (1) Foundations for all Christians; (2) Academy for advanced studies; and (3) Institute for graduate-level classes. Our classes are taught by world-class professors from major seminaries, and we offer over more than 100 classes and 1,000 hours of instruction.

Vision

Equipping people to be biblically trained and fully devoted followers of Jesus.

Mission

BiblicalTraining.org is a not-for-profit ministry that gives all people access to the finest in Christian education.

Values

  1. Spiritual growth requires knowledge and understanding of biblical content and theology
  2. Education requires both content (head), but also the reflection and integration (heart, hands).
  3. All people should have access high quality, holistic, Christian education within their community.

Distinctives

  • World class. Our professors are among the best academics in the world, and know how to teach.
  • Holistic. We want to see students move through content to deep reflection and application.
  • Configurable. Ministries can use BT lectures as well as their own to design their educational program.
  • Accessible. BiblicalTraining is a web-based ministry whose content is free.
  • Community-based. We encourage people to learn together, in mentor/apprentice relationships.
  • Broadly evangelical. Our materials are broadly evangelical, governed by our Statement of Faith.
  • Partners. We provide the content and delivery mechanisms, and our partner organizations provide the community and mentoring. When there are no partners, we hope to provide a virtual community and real-life mentors.

Dr. J. I. Packer

“The vision that drives Biblical Training is twofold. The first part of the dream is that every Christian should be educated and equipped for the fullest use of their spiritual gifts in serving others for Christ's sake. The second part of the dream is that Christian education up to seminary standard should be available free to anyone who can work a computer. What a magnificent, momentous dream! And now it is coming true as more and more courses are made available on the Biblical Training website. May God prosper Biblical Training mightily! I cannot commend the venture too highly.”
