The Department of Biblical and Associated Studies has a distinguished record in helping train and prepare students for Christian experience, Christian service, and for graduate study. The department is well-named in that all its courses are either biblical in focus or are biblically-related. Students are introduced to various studies and are encouraged toward spiritual growth, ministry involvement, and planning toward graduate training.

Professors in the department are engaged in directing students toward new insights and perspectives of learning and how it should be enhanced and extended over a lifetime of academic growth. Students are expected to take responsibility for their own education as they drill, master, rehearse, question, and probe the facts and issues brought to them by the department faculty.

Department personnel are committed to presenting Christian truth unveiled in Jesus Christ and endeavor to empower their students to embody Christian relational skills, Christian values, and Christian character as building blocks for a vital Christian world view.
