The Department of Biblical Studies is committed to the Scriptures as wholly inspired and authoritative, and its faculty instructs and guides students to an intellectual grasp of Scripture, to a right relationship with God through Jesus Christ, and into active service in the life of the church and community. The department faculty also helps prepare men and women to be informed, effective, caring ministers within the kingdom of God.


The goals of our programs in graduate Bible include the following:

  • Increase the student's knowledge of/and ability to interpret responsibly biblical texts with exposure to related subject areas
  • Increase the student's ability to perform independent study and traditional research skills
  • Enable the student to excel in Christian ministry with professionalism, in a way respects the individual and honors our Lord and Creator
