BT106 – Biblical Theology
The Bible reveals the mystery of God’s plan which is the unifying theme of the Bible. It is the revelation of Jesus Christ as the Savior of sinful mankind. Jesus explained how the Old Testament centered on Him: “And He said unto them, these are the words which I spake unto you while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms concerning me” (Luke 24:44). With this introduction, Jesus continued and “…opened He their understanding that they might understand the scriptures” (Luke 24:45). What was the key Jesus gave them to understanding the Scriptures? The fact that its major theme focused on Him: “…Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And Ye are witnesses of these things” (Luke 24:46-48).
BT108 – Discipleship
This course is intended to help you get to the point where you are actually making disciples. So, pray that God would send you someone that you can pour your life into.

May God richly bless you as you continue to serve the Lord Jesus Christ.

We will then go one step further to discover the character of God which provides the foundation of the commands. We will learn to apply the Test of Truth and the Evidence of Truth in any situation.

BT121 – Strategies for Spiritual Harvest
The initial call of Jesus Christ to men was to be spiritually reproductive: Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. His final command that of the Great Commission, also challenged followers to spiritual reproduction.

It communicates the vision which the remainder of Institute training equips students to fulfill.

We pray that God will use this little guide to help you train an army of men and women that will reap a great spiritual harvest around your altars.
BT133 – Prophetic Intercession
The intercessory, prophetic anointing is an unusual one to those unfamiliar with the conditions of the spiritual realm. It can result in various actions, orchestrations, illustrations and proclamations that aren’t consistent with mere human intelligence, though fruitful none the less (1 Cor 2:6-16). We will go further into these realities within the depths of this course
BT134 – Divine Provision
This course, “Divine Provision,” will prepare you personally and your ministry corporately to face what is happening now and what will occur in the future in the financial realm. Your position in the face of the current and impending crises will not be one of weakness, but it will be a stance of strength, faith, and power, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7).
BT135 – How God Sees Us
This is another big key to positioning ourselves to trust God with the issues of our life. It is very important to know how God sees us, what He thinks about us, and what His desires for us are. How can you trust somebody who you aren’t really sure is looking out for your best interest? How can you freely put your life in the hands of somebody who you perceive may use you and not be trustworthy?
BT136 – Importance of Holiness
No matter how much that we mess up, how many times we fail, if we are walking in the light and loving others, including those who have wronged us, then the Blood of Christ constantly keeps our record clean. Now don’t get me wrong, this is by no means a license to continue in sin, but it is a beautiful gift from God that allows us to grow in our walk with Him while keeping a clean and un-condemned conscience. When we are in Christ, the very righteousness of God is upon us by faith in Christ. It is nothing that we could ever earn by good works or acts of righteousness.
BT137 – Jesus of the Bible
The Bible is about Jesus. He is pictured or prophesied about in each of the 66 Bible books as well as in countless types in the lives of different characters in the Bible. This course will give you a breakdown of how He is pictured in each of the books.
BT138 – God’s Authority in the Family
God is our first and foremost authority that must be respected. Second is the husband or father in the home, for he was given authority over his home along with the responsibility for their well-being. Third is the mother’s authority over her children. It is right in the Lord’s eyes that husbands are in submission to God’s authority, wives are in submission to their husband’s authority and children to their parents. This is the way God has ordained for us in the Bible.
BT139 – Who We Really Are
his is one elementary subject that most Christians still don’t fully understand, and it is a powerful key to spiritual breakthrough for countless believers around the globe today! Don’t believe you’re just an old forgiven sinner just because some pastor tells you so. Look these things up in the Word of God for yourself and know the truth. For Jesus said clearly that if we continue in His Word, we will know the truth and the truth will set us free!
BT140 – Ambassador for Christ
We are the ambassadors of Christ. But it seems those who serve in such offices in the world have more integrity than we who serve in the name of our Lord. The ambassador for the United States of America speaks for the president of our nation. He is the president’s mouthpiece on foreign soil, just as we are Christ’s mouthpiece in this evil world. But or if another speaks those things that are not the heart and mind of our President, then it is the responsibility of the U.S. Ambassador to rehearse the truth and relay the mind of his leader. Are we to do any less? We cannot be passive when sin is pouring in and putting itself on display in the Body of Christ. We are charged to bring correction, not with lies, accusations, innuendoes, malice and hypocrisy; but with love and grace always seeking to make peace and restore righteousness.
