BIBLICAL AND THEOLOGICAL TRAINING PROGRAM

The Biblical and Theological Training Program of Open Eyes Mission exists to train pastors/ministers, missionaries, church planters, elders, deacons and Bible study leaders. Faculty and students are committed to the authority of Holy Scripture and seek to interpret the Scriptures in accordance with the Reformed confessions (Belgic Confession, Heidelberg Catechism, Canons of Dordt, the Westminster Confession and Catechisms, and the London Baptist Confession of Faith). Academic excellence and practical relevance for the ministry are of paramount importance.
