1st Year : Full-time Biblical Studies Foundations Course

Our goal is to thoroughly immerse the student in the Word of God for one year.

This is done through a systematic study of each of the 66 books of the Bible. The end product is a Christian with an in depth overview of the whole Bible.

This is a valuable course for any minister that seeks to fulfill the ‘Great Commission’ of disciplining the nations (Matt. 28:18-20).


2nd Year : Full-time Foundations for Ministry Development Course

The second year curriculum focuses on equipping people to be effective ministers of the gospel.

The training focuses on the triumph of the gospel through the church in the past 2000 years, sound doctrine, communicating the gospel to a lost world and being a Biblical Christian.

Living Word Bible College is in partnership with the South African Theological Seminary (SATS), an accredited distance learning institution. Both the first- and second year Full-time Bible College programmes have been appraised for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) credits. This accreditation system assists students to further their studies towards obtaining a B.Th.
