Bethlehem College & Seminary offers these non-credit bearing courses and resources to encourage you and your church small group in serious adult theological education. These resources are saturated with Bethlehem’s God-centered, Bible-saturated view of “Christian Hedonism” that God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him.
Bethlehem has teamed up with BibleMesh to offer single-user online courses for individual study at one’s own pace. Two certificate programs, comprised of multiple courses, are designed to equip students in theology, Bible study, and biblical leadership.
Bethlehem College & Seminary offers free PDFs of our core curriculum with both Instructor & Student Guides.
Also available are a number of teaching video resources from Bethlehem College & Seminary professors. These teaching videos will enhance any home small group study or Sunday school class time.
