I hope this discussion thread may be helpful to others who hold a similar desire to pursue Bible College studies but distance contravenes.

I am prayerfully considering studying with an IB Bible College held in America. My home-base is Aus, so flexible online study would be optimal.  I've researched a couple of colleges, but would love to hear others input and recommendations for colleges offering distance learning. I do love hearing others' stories, if you have studied and graduated already. But am really looking at affordability and then from there , will help me narrow my options down.

So grateful for this online forum! Love seeing many open discussions.

From a sister in Christ,

Ann B

Hi Tony yes the top 5 affordable for distance learning so far:

Florida Baptist College

BMA Seminary (Texas)

Texas Baptist College

Independent Baptist Online College (Non accredited)

Berean Bible Institute (California) however non-accredited also


The list has been narrowed down a lot because of cost even though a lot of them have been very appealing.

Perfect, Maranatha Baptist Uni looks good and has high acceptance rate. I've added that to my list now too.

If you're looking for accredited colleges, most are going to be cost prohibitive, IMHO. But, many will let a person work at a reasonable pace. Years ago I had started my degree through Baptist University of America in Kokomo, IN. Because of several "happenings" in our lives, I had to lay that down for a while. I have had several friends go through there, and their work is college leve work, though many people don't accept this as a "legitimate" college because of their unaccredited status. It might be something to check into as well. I've considered picking my studies back up there in the near future.

Wow yes, It's a really big decision..With the time spent, effort and financial planning. I'd have to really weigh up and expect to pay more at an accredited College. But that's ok.

Also I think there is a bit more flexibility for example swapping completed credits to another recognised college if the student wanted to change.

Those are some good thoughts I'll take them into account !

      Havent been on for years, but have been studying with Jews for Jesus weekly Bible Study which has been wonderful.  Not sure any of your views on that group, but if you are from a Jewish background a great place to be grounded in the word and to learn.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
