This two year degree designed to supply the learner with intense Biblical training. The ABS degree is designed around a full 60 credits of Bible and Ministry courses (a minimum of 30 credits must be taken through BBI). The ABS degree requires no general education courses and can be completed completely through BBI.
The ABS is not intended to fully equip anyone for full-time vocational ministry. It is a transitional degree designed to encourage and equip the laymen to better serve Christ in the local church. The ABS degree maybe used as a transition into a Diploma of Advanced Biblical Studies or a Bachelor of Ministry degree offered at Berean Bible Institute.
The Associate of Biblical Studies degree may be earned through BBI’s distance studies program combined with BBI’s on campus courses. Should a student desire to pursue a Diploma of Advanced Biblical Studies or a Bachelor degree, that student would be required to sign a statement of agreement with the BBI doctrinal statement.
This transitional degree better equips and encourages the man or woman of God as laymen and laywomen serving within the local church. For those seeking full-time vocational ministry, this degree serves as an intermediate stepping stone as a bridge to our Diploma of Advanced Biblical Studies (Dip. ABS) or Bachelor degree (B. Min.).
This degree particularly serves well:
A total of 60 credit hours are required to earn this degree, with a minimum of 30 credit hours being taken from BBI.
*Approved electives for the Associate of Biblical Foundations are chosen by the student with the recommendation of an academic advisor.
All required courses can be taken via any combination of the following delivery formats:
While the most motivated students can complete 60 credit hours of study in as little as 2 academic years, students have the flexibility to work at a pace that works with the needs and demands of their life and ministry.

Students, paying at the full tuition rate, will be charged for 60 credit hours at $85 per credit hour for a total of $5,100. Textbooks, course materials and fees are additional expenses.
