Welcome to a new and exciting ministry from the Apostolic Information Service and Indiana Bible College.  As always, it is our desire is to provide you with quality materials to assist you in furthering your Bible and Theology education.

For the first time you can begin to earn Bible College credit from Indiana Bible College in an easy and enjoyable way and best of all, for a very low cost!

Each month on the Apostolic Information Service CD we will provide you with one lesson from six different Bible subjects.

There are twenty-five subjects in all.  These are:

  • Introduction to the Bible
  • Acts of the Apostles – Part 1
  • Acts of the Apostles – Part 2
  • Bible Doctrine – Part 1
  • Bible Doctrine – Part 2
  • Bible Doctrine – Part 3

  • Epistles – Part 3

  • Pastoral Studies

Each subject contains twelve lessons and a self-test.  They were written by Bro. Ralph V. Reynolds, a great Apostolic preacher, pastor and author of dozens of books and articles.  You will find each lesson packed with insightful information and doctrinally accurate in every way.

With each lesson we have included a Power-Point outline to assist you in teaching these lessons to your church, church leaders, or ministers in training.

By completing one lesson each month from six subjects, it will take you approximately three to four years to complete all twenty-five subjects.  The credits you earn from these subjects can be easily applied toward your B.A. degree from IBC.  A total of 128 credits are required to earn a B.A. degree from Indiana Bible College.  Please contact IBC for more information and course listing in our Distance Learning program.

Here’s how it works:

1.   Each month on the AIS Resource CD, you will find a new Bible lesson from six important Bible topics.  Read and study each lesson carefully.

2.   Complete the self-test at the end of each lesson.  You may take this with open notes. Each question must be fully answered.  Use additional pages if needed.

3.   Return a copy of this self-test to the Apostolic Information Service office.  When you have completed all 12 self-tests, we will send you a confirmation letter listing all the subjects you have completed to date.  This letter will also offer you the opportunity to turn this subject into one unit of credit from Indiana Bible College.

4.   To earn your unit of credit on that subject you will be asked to read one additional book relating to that subject.

5.   Once you have purchased and read the assigned book, you will then write a 4000-word book report on that book (normally 8-10 double-spaced pages).

6.   You should then return your book report along with a check for $60.00 to Indiana Bible College.

7.   Upon receiving a passing grade for the class (grade will be determined by the quality of work from both self-tests and book report), one unit of college credit will be applied to your IBC transcript.

8.   By completing all twenty-five subjects in this manner you can earn twenty-five units of credit which may be applied toward a B. A. degree in Bible and Theology from Indiana Bible College.

9.   All credits earned in this way will be applied as ‘elective’ credits and may not be used to fulfill the required Bible college courses (98 credits are from required courses).  A minimum of 128 college credits (98 required, 30 elective) are required to earn your B.A. Degree from IBC.
