Freedom Bible College & Seminary Online Catalog

Freedom Bible College & Seminary offers church-related training courses and degrees which may or may not be transferable to academic colleges and universities accredited by agencies recognized by the United States Department of Education.

At FBCS, we are committed to equipping our students for service within the local and extended body of Christ, non-profit ministries, and world-wide mission work.  An FBCS education serves a separate niche of the student population who may not have time or resources to attend a full, academic university, but still need a specialized, biblical education to serve effectively in the Church.

What follows is a complete list of biblical Christian certificate programs and Bible college degrees for: bachelor degrees, master degrees and doctorate degrees.


Freedom Bible College & Seminary  is recognized by Bible colleges world-wide, providing low tuition and non-interest payment plans. We offer both distance learning and resident classes. Distance learning students are sent textbooks and materials for their degree program.  Assignments are submitted either through email or regular mail.  For students preferring a traditional classroom experience, we have several resident branches across the United States. Visit the Resident Branches link on our home page for more information.
