layman's bible training program


One of Satan’s tools that he uses against Christians is their lack of Bible knowledge. The number one reason believers do not share their faith is the fear of being asked questions they cannot answer. As believers we should always be prepared to give an answer  for our faith (1 Peter 1:15).

LBU has designed a course of study geared toward laymen that is college -level and can be taken from anywhere. Each course is three credit hours and all credits earned can be transferred into a bachelor’s degree program. Anyone who has completed the ten course program  will be awarded the layman’s Bible training Program Certificate and will have the option of walking in LBU’s commencement exercises.

One of the best features of the program is the cost. All ten courses are only $1200.
