Christian studies is about more than biblical knowledge. It's about laying foundations for impact in ministry.
Bethel's certificate in Christian Studies emphasizes foundational coursework in biblical, historical, and theological studies. Our goal is to nurture more informed, whole and holy laypersons for the blessing of church congregations and their witness to the world.
Our Christian Studies Certificate will build upon foundational courses designed to enhance your skills and passions in order to achieve success for what God has called you to.
