DBS Doctor of Biblical Studies: DBS is an entry level theological diploma course at the doctoral level where one learns the basics of Bible and Theology.
Admission Requirements You must be 24 years or older, with preferably 12 years of schooling and 3 years of college. However, if you are 24 or older but if you do not have the required academic qualification, you can still apply and we will give you additional course material to take care of the academic deficiency. There is no additional fees for it. This is done under the Open University system followed worldwide by theological institutions.
Time Available You have 2 years to complete the course at an accelerated pace. In case you fail to complete the course in 2 years, you can renew for up to three years on payment of an annual renewal fees.
Syllabus All the textbooks and reading-materials listed below are given via free downloads. You do not have to buy anything. Each numbered textbook shown below is a “Course Module” worth 1 to 3 credit hours.
Essential Apologetics Essential Apologetics is a set of course modules which every student of Trinity needs to study once. This means that whatever the diploma which you join, you need to study this first and then take other courses. Essential Apologetics is listed at the beginning of every diploma program to indicate that no student is exempt from studying them. You need to study them only once, even if you join multiple diploma programs.

  6. Avis Ward says:

    It is a blessing to see God’s people exhibiting the Fruit of the Spirit and in obedience to the Word of God. Using your gifts to offer free courses to enlighten, educated, train and build the kingdom of God is astonishing! May the Lord bless and keep you. I would like to know what the registration fee is, please? I am interested in starting straightaway! Thank you for this amazing opportunity. I help pregnant teens using my own residence until we can secure funds to build. In the meantime, I have been called full-time into the ministry and I believe a workman should not be ashamed but study to show oneself approved, rightly dividing the Word of Truth, not one’s opinion when it comes to eternal life. Kindest regards in Christ.

  9. Carlton Coleman says:

    Hi Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

    I am a recent Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics graduate and have also taken some graduate (masters level) courses in Education but have since taken a break from my studies to evaluate what I really want to do in life. I am currently a math tutor at two different colleges and I really would like to start an internet marketing business but admit I need to put God first and services to him should be my #1 priority.

    I admit that while I attend church regularly, I have never been as devoted to God as I should be nor have I been a person who has grounded himself into the Word of God.

    However, when I see a way to pursue an education for practically free in order to help me study the bible and become more grounded in the Word, I can’t help but to be enthusiastic and interested in pursuing a Doctor of Biblical Studies degree.

    Do you all think pursuing this degree would be a good idea in my current status of my walk with God?
