Bachelor of Theology

The Bachelor of Theology degree (B.Th.) is granted for demonstration of basic competencies related to building biblical theology and doing theology in culture, particularly by those in ministry with responsibility extending beyond the local church level.


The general objectives of all Antioch School programs are:

  • Comprehensive development in character, skills, and knowledge for effective ministry.
  • Life development and lifelong learning orientation.
  • Recognition of and participation in the centrality of the local church in the plan of God.
  • Ability to master biblical content, benefit from significant contributions of scholars, and build strategic models of ministry accordingly.

The general objective of Theology degrees is to help train those who desire to understand thoroughly the unfolding message of Scripture itself as a guidebook for life and ministry, paying special attention to the implications of that message in one's personal life, ministry, and culture.


Specific program objectives of the B.Th. include:

  • Mastery of Scripture using a biblical theology approach, which allows the teaching of the Bible to unfold naturally according to author's intention and literary design with special attention to genre and overaching themes of each Bible book.
  • Reflection on the contributions of leading scholars regarding biblical theology and theology in culture.
  • Address the pertinent issues related to biblical theology and theology in culture and analyze Scripture and other contributions related to those issues.
  • Formulate conclusions and personal applications regarding those issues.
