1. Create an account
To begin, we encourage you to create an account and login. You can listen to lectures on your computer if you are not logged in, but more features are available for those who are logged in, like mp3 downloads. All classes and resources are available to you at no charge except for the classes in the Certificates section.
2. Familiarize yourself with the different classes
Then you should get acquainted with our Learning Plans: Foundations; Discipleship; Leadership; and the BiblicalTraining Institute. We also offer Seminars on topics of general interest. Use the links to the left for summaries.
For most people, working through the Foundations and Discipleship classes is the most important thing to do. Even if at times it feels basic, it's always beneficial to meditate on foundational truths of the faith, and you will likely be challenged as you fill gaps in your knowledge of which you were previously unaware.
3. Search our website for a specific class or topic
By entering key words into our search field, you will see links to classes on our website that will give you information related to topics of your interest.
4. Top classes
Probably one of the most important classes on the site is entitled, Beginning Your Spiritual Journey. It is a curriculum designed to help new believers begin their spiritual journey. But even if you are not a new believer, you should work through the class so that you can walk the same path with others.
The most popular class on the site is, New Testament, its Basic Structure, Content, and Theology. It is a thirty-five-hour class that helps you gain a solid understanding of the basic structure, themes, and content of the New Testament. It is also under the Discipleship link.
Finally, we should mention the ten-hour class on Spiritual Formation (or some people prefer to call it, Biblical Spirituality), under Leadership. The class is for people who have been Christians for some time and are struggling to continue growing. At times the message of the class will be hard to hear, but we have received a tremendous number of emails from people who attest to its life-changing message.
The Certificates classes include reflection questions and online quizzes. You may earn CEU credits through ACSI for these classes, but they are not accredited for seminary or college credits. There is an enrollment fee to cover the costs of developing the reflection questions and programming and maintaining the website to accommodate the online quizzes.
