"This course was very informative. I enjoyed all the lectures and the teachers were through. As I learn more about the terms used in Theology it helps me to understand the history of Christianity. This course and all the lectures have given me confidence emboldened me in my evangelical walk. As I done talks with our local church I have the knowledge and understanding to share the word of God with confidence."

Take the challenge, stay committed, be disciplined and get it done.

05/27/2024

All my life I have never liked studying, and doing this has been a process and a challenge, but it has helped me to discipline myself and to apply myself and hopefully complete this course.

I have been getting by on life’s experience, my relationship with the Lord, and in the Word, but I know in order to fulfil the call I know I have on my life I need this.

so as challenging as it is to a person who does not like studying, I’m committed.
