Study Streams and Subjects

Study StreamsWe believe that you will gain more benefit, more pleasure and find more motive to study by taking control of your own study program instead of fulfilling a set curriculum.  Our unique program offers you a range of over 100 subjects separated into 8 streams of study from which you can tailor your study program to meet your ministry needs.

The name of the stream gives you a general idea of its the application of the subject, it is a generalisation to help you decide what you will study.

We suggest starting with a “Foundation Subject”, especially if you are new to study or new as a Christian.

Each time you select a new subject you do so from a different stream.  The benefit to you is that you can decide what you want to study to meet your specific need if required, by changing streams you are adding depth and breadth to your study program which in turn makes for a better, wiser, more capable graduate.   You may select from any stream as long as you rotate through them. The only exception is the Counselling stream, you should have at least two years of Bible study before you specialise in this unique and valuable discipline.

As you study I pray most sincerely that the cry of Peter will become YOUR  reality.

Grace and peace be multiplied to you through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, according as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who has called us to glory and virtue, through which He has given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, so that by these you might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. (2Pe 1:2-4)

And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, All authority is given to Me in Heaven and in the earth. Therefore go and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things, whatever I commanded you. And, behold, I am with you all the days until the end of the world. Amen. (Mat 28:18-20)

Foundational Study Options

Foundational Study Options Vision CollegesFoundational studies are just that, the foundational truths upon which you will be able to build your Christian Life. An introduction to Salvation, Healing, the Holy Spirit, the Word of God, the development of a healthy prayer life and so much more are examined in detail.

There are only two study options and students need to complete only one of them and complete the rest of their studies from the other streams.

Through these studies, the student embarks on a journey that will help to establish a Christian lifestyle. Truths that will liberate, strengthen, encourage, nurture and will bring discipleship to the student.

These subjects provide both the knowledge and the survival skills necessary to enjoy our Christian walk, gain an answer to prayer, be assured of our salvation, understand our rights, determine God's will for us, walk in his authority and enjoy our relationship with each other.

While we offer subjects from three authors, only one needs to be undertaken due to the similarity of the material.

  • If you are a new Christian and are new to study you should undertake one of these subjects, it will ease you into the College philosophy and establish the framework for the rest of your study program.
  • If you have been given the responsibility of teaching new Christians the foundational truths these options are ideal study options
  • If you are an established older Christian you will be refreshed and encouraged as you re-examine these truths that sometimes we "let slip" as we are busy with our routine and the tasks that take our attention.

The assessment requirements are a set subject assignment which is usually a multiple choice exam, additional credit points can be earned by completing an essay or a student study guide.

Foundations of Faith

 

For any other foundation can no one lay than the one being laid, who is Jesus Christ. And if anyone builds on this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble, each one's work shall be revealed. For the Day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try each one's work as to what kind it is. If anyone's work which he built remains, he shall receive a reward.  (1Co 3:11-14)

In this way desiring to declare more fully to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, God interposed by an oath, so that by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us, which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters into that within the veil, where the Forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.  (Heb 6:17-20)

The Church Stream Studies

Church Stream Studies Vision CollegesWhat is the Church? The answer to this question varies so much on our focus at any given time, it is the body of Christ the universal church, the local church, it is a business entity as well as a spiritual entity or a social group.

It is glorious and has some dreadful past, it is filled with men and women of multiple views and ideas, but it is still the most powerful entity on earth.  The church has engineered changes to society and bettered the laws of the land, brought peace where there was war, strength where there are weaknesses, hope where there is despair.

The glorious truths of the Universal Body of Jesus Christ are presented as are some of the warts of denominational positions with everything in between. The issues presented are not denominational specific.

The issues are vast. To study them presents many issues and depending on who you are, what you are doing, how you feel there is so much to the question - "What is the Church?"

The subjects in this stream can be taken in any order to suit the student's study needs, we have no set priority on the subjects.

The assessment requirements are a set subject assignment which is usually an open multiple choice exam, additional credit points can be earned by completing an essay or a student study guide.
