I believe IBC was the place God called me to study

Christian Education Certificate

Christian Education courses can be studied through our Evening Classes and Ladies' Study Fellowship. They both cover a wide range of topics and are held in various locations including Moira, Strandtown (Belfast), Ballymena and Letterkenny.

Each year’s study consists of two 10-week semesters and completion of the two year course will lead to the Christian Education Certificate and the three year course to the Christian Education Diploma. These awards also require a satisfactory level of attendance (75%) at the lectures and the submission, each year, of three essays at an acceptable grade.

Topics covered in the Christian Education Courses include:

  • Discipleship
  • OT Overview
  • Family Matters
  • World Missions
  • The Reformation
  • Meeting the Cults
  • Ethical Issues
  • NT Overview
  • Basic Christian Beliefs
  • Counselling & Care
  • World Religions
  • Introduction to the Bible
  • The Story of the Church
  • Know your Books (OT & NT)
  • Communicating the gospel
  • Life of the Apostle Paul
