Philosophy of Education

 

Covenant Bible Institute offers graduate and post-graduate degrees for students committed to excellence in education. Graduates of the School of Graduate Studies will be launched as ministers into the marketplace prepared to rightly divide the Word of truth utilizing open church (I Corinthians 14:26) and house church (Acts 2:46) principles—equipping every believer for ministry without the clergy/laity distinction.
