Enrich your knowledge of God and his Word! The Center for Biblical Transformation offers college-level courses designed to deepen your understanding of the Bible and Christian theology, help you be transformed into the image of Jesus Christ and prepare you to serve in his kingdom.
Join our four-course certificate program, or take any course at any time with no commitments. Courses are offered for ten weeks in the fall and in the winter.
