Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is LivingRoom Bible Institute?
We are a distance training center for Christians who desire a biblical education but do not have the time or resources to attend a college program (we are not a college and do not claim to be).
2. What is the Goal of LivingRoom Bible Institute?
We are dedicated to the purpose of training and educating persons for Christian service. Jesus Christ is the center of all our objectives. Our Mission Statement says it all:
We exist to educate, equip, and vlidate those pursuing a deeper knowledge of God and their relationship to Him. We accomplish these goals by providing relevant biblical studies to those engaged in a journey toward Christian maturity.
3. What kind of studies does LivingRoom Bible Institute offer?
We offer correspondence studies at the certificate level. CLICK HERE for a sample study. Most of our courses involve you, the provided study guide, and a Bible with some other basic resources -- such as a Bible Dictionary and Bible Handbook. You can also take advantage of our online study resources. CLICK HERE to download the free Theophilus Bible software program and install it on your home computer.
4. How difficult are the courses and how much time is involved?
None of our courses include tests or research papers. The basic procedure involves opening your Bible and finding the answers to the written study questions. The questions are designed to force you to understand the intent of the biblical author. Some study guides have True/False or Multiple Choice quizzes at the end of the lesson, but most simply ask you to search the text to find the answer. The Bible is our textbook. The studies are time-intensive and cannot be completed quickly. The idea is not to just "get it over with" but to allow the text to speak to you and equip you for ministry.
5. What is included in the course materials?
When you enroll we will give you a username and password that allows you to download each study guides as you need it. Also, at your request we can mail you a CD that has all the study guides on it. You need to complete 30 credits, but can take more for your own benefit if you desire. The courses are all written in Adobe Acrobat format so we have included the free Adobe Acrobat Reader program in case you don't have it. In other words, we supply everything you could possibly need (you will need to supply your own computer!).
6.How does the process work?
We will e-mail you acknowledgement of your enrollment usually within 24 hours from the time you order. If you decide to order the study guides on CD rather then use the download option, you will receive it in the mail within 5 business days (if in the U.S.A.). Once you receive your materials you can start working on the class of your choice. We advise you to only work on one course at a time and to send it in as soon as it is completed. It is best if you write your answers in a word processing document and send it to us as an e-mail attachment for faster processing. That way you can keep your originals and save the cost of postage. Once you have earned 30 credits we will send you a quality certificate suitable for framing; acknowledging the completion of your work. We will keep track of all your progress in our office and have a transcript of all your work. All of our courses are graded on a pass/fail basis.
7. Is LivingRoom Bible Institute an accredited college?
No on both counts. We are not a college, we are a Bible Institute and do not claim to offer college courses. We are also not accredited as we do not offer any type of degree programs, just certificates of completion.
8. What is the doctrinal position of LivingRoom Bible Institute?
We are a conservative, evangelical institute. Our student body is interdenominational. CLICK HERE for a complete doctrinal statement.
9. Can I transfer in credits for advanced standing?
No. We do not offer any advanced standing.
10. Do you offer traditional residence classes?
Our courses are offered only as distance education.
11. How long does it take to complete a course?
That is entirely up to the student. Most students complete a course every month or less. It can be done even faster if you are motivated and have the time. We do expect the entire program to be completed in a maximum of two years (most complete it in less time).
12. How do I enroll in a Certificate Program
CLICK HERE to enroll in the either or both of the certificate programs.
13. When are the Certificates issued?
We will send you your certificate within a week of the completion of your studies.
14. What is the cost of tuition and fees?
The cost of one certificate program (including all fees, course materials, and certificate at the time of completion) is $100.00. If you enroll in both certificate programs at the same time you receive a 25% reduction, or $150.00 total for both Old Testament and New Testament programs. Your study guides are provided free of charge. The amount that you invest is for the administrative costs involved. This is the best Christian educational value you will find anywhere!
