Where do I start?
1. Choose which track
This is the most important question you have to answer. Which track?
- Foundations for all Christians is a discipleship program appropriate for all followers of Jesus Christ. These are mostly ten hour classes delivered at a lay level. Be sure to start with the core class, Life is a Journey.
- Academy for advanced study is a series of advanced classes for people who have had some biblical training.
- Institute for graduate-level studies is seminary-level curriculum whose classes are 20 to 30 hours.
Chose which track you want to follow and attend at least the core classes. You may listen to the lectures at your own pace. There is no charge to listen to these lectures. We encourage you to study with a mentor and/or small group in your community.
We also offer certificates on subjects including basic theology and leadership training. When you complete the quizzes for each of the classes in one of the Certificates, we mail you a certificate of completion. There is a fee to enroll for a certificate that helps cover our costs of creating the study guides and providing the online quizzes. We offer certificates only for the classes under the Certificates heading. At this time, we do not offer credits or degrees for these Certificates.
Finally, our library has over 14,000 articles on all things biblical.

- learn and understand God's Word,
- reflect on what God has said by allowing it to change the way you think about and relate to God,
