Certificate of Graduate Studies
For students interested in becoming Bible expositors, pastors, missionaries or leaders in other areas of vocation Christian ministry, we offer a 120-hour Master of Theology degree.
We also offer Master of Arts degrees in the following fields: Biblical Counseling, Biblical Exegesis and Linguistics, Christian Education, Cross-cultural Ministries, and Media and Communication. A Certificate of Graduate Studies is also available as well as a Doctor of Philosophy degree and a Doctor of Ministry degree.
For students who cannot come to Dallas initially, we offer distance learning options through five campuses in Atlanta, Austin, Houston, San Antonio, and Tampa Bay, along with online courses. At the Houston campus, students may entirely complete the Th.M. or MA in Christian Education degrees. We now also offer online courses in Chinese.
Our Doctrinal Statement
While our faculty and board annually affirm their agreement with the full doctrinal statement, students need only agree with these seven essentials:
the full deity and humanity of Christ
the spiritual lostness of the human race
the substitutionary atonement and bodily resurrection of Christ
salvation by faith alone in Christ alone
the physical return of Christ
the authority and inerrancy of Scripture.
