Associate in Foundations of Christian Thought (61 Units)

The Associate in Foundations of Christian Thought is designed to give students a foundation for understanding and ministering to our world. The program has two pillars: first, an integrated study of the history of the world, philosophy, and Christian worldview, and second, a foundation for understanding the Bible and its implications for life by focusing on the Old Testament Scriptures. This two-year degree is the foundation for the more comprehensive four-year Bachelor of Biblical studies degree.

I signed up for an education, what I received was so much more. I was mentored and discipled by fellow students and staff who had been transformed by God’s incredible love and lived every aspect of their lives as a response to that love. The more I learned to study God’s Word, the more I grew in my relationship with Jesus. And the more I learned about God’s love for the world, the more I felt called to take up my part in making this great love known.
