Purpose

LPC’s Biblical Studies program equips individuals with a deep understanding of the Bible, theological synthesis, and hermeneutic practices. It allows students to gain understanding of the value of the major fields of knowledge from a biblical framework, and possess the desire and foundation necessary to be a lifelong learner. Students will attain the skills necessary to minister to people inside and outside of the local church.

This is a distinct program in biblical studies for students who: do not plan to pursue further training, or who plan to pursue a different major at another college or university, or have already had training in another field. 

Program Goals

Graduates from the AA program are expected to demonstrate competency in the same areas of biblical and theological studies as graduates from LPC's Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies program, at a level of proficiency that is appropriate for the Associate's degree.
