One very significant benefit of an education at TFC is that all students receive a thorough knowledge of biblical truth along with a theological framework upon which to construct an essentially Christian worldview. These are provided through a thirty credit-hour core of Bible and doctrine courses required of every student, including surveys of both the Old and New Testaments, how to interpret the Bible, instruction in the development of one’s personal spiritual life, systematic theology, and a choice of some electives in Bible or theology.
Our full-time professors all have earned Ph.D. degrees, and our part-time professors all have either earned doctorates or master’s degrees. Equally important are their spiritual qualifications. All give unwavering allegiance to such historic Christian doctrines as the inerrancy and full authority of Scripture, and Christ’s unique deity, substitutionary atonement, bodily resurrection, and literal return. Within the conservative, evangelical spectrum, you will find in our department an excellent balance of theological viewpoints represented in the different backgrounds of our professors. A number of our professors have had pastoral experience as well.
In the area of biblical languages, we offer up to three years of Greek or Hebrew. This is equivalent to a seminary level of proficiency in these languages. Some seminaries will accept this proficiency and admit a student to advance standing.
