An online Christian Studies Certificate from an accredited seminary offers students the opportunity to complete a short-term, non-degree program at the seminary level. Some students seek a Certificate in Christian Studies solely for personal enrichment and to gain a deeper understanding of God and the Christian religion.
The Online Certificate in Christian Studies is an affordable way for lay people to develop a strong knowledge base of the Bible and the Christian faith. Plus, it allows the student to “test” the waters to see if they may be called to enter seminary for training in full-time ministry. Some religious higher learning institutions will allow students to transfer credits from their certificate program into a seminary degree if they wish to pursue further education.
The Christian Studies certificate can also help students be more effective in ministry at their local church, give them the foundation to serve in a para-church organization, and prepare them to meet the needs of the culture in personal service.
An online program allows students to stay connected with their local church and community while earning an education from an accredited school of divinity.
