Grace Bible Seminary was started with the desire to come alongside local churches entrusting biblical truth to faithful men who will be able to teach others (2 Timothy 2:2). Our goal is to train and mentor men to shepherd the church of Jesus Christ. Our focus is teaching them biblical languages, exegesis, theology, and helping them develop practical skills necessary to be excellent students of Scripture, accurate expositors, capable biblical counsellors—encouraging them to be Christlike shepherds and capable overseers as they care for their flock.
Our training center offers 2 master level programs and 2 certificate programs. The Master of Divinity (M.Div.) program is our highest level program, consisting of 102 credit hours. This program provides students with a biblical, theological, and practical basis for serving in the local church. Classes focus on studying biblical languages, exegetical study of the text of Holy Scripture, expository preaching, as well as biblical, systematic, and practical theology. The program is offered in two formats: 3 year full-time format and a 6 year part-time format that combines classroom and distance learning. The second master level program is a Master in Biblical Studies (M.A.B.S.) This program is intended for those who wish to serve faithfully in their church. The program provides the student with a comprehensive, in-depth and systematic knowledge of God's Word necessary for effective Christian ministry. This unparalleled program provides a consistent and mind-transforming heart study for each book of the Bible and will provide students with the necessary skills to interpret, apply, and proclaim all of God's truth, both inside and outside the church.
The 2 certificate programs are offered in a weekend format allowing the student to remain in full-time employment. The Biblical Preaching program helps students to improve their ability to explain and apply the Word of God based on an in-depth analysis of the biblical text using proper hermeneutics. The courses are aimed at the spiritual formation of the preacher, as well as his ability to accurately preach from one complete scripture text. The second certificate program is in Biblical Counseling. This program was developed by the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (ACBC). This program moves the student toward completing the certification process as outline by ACBC.
