Master of Theology Online Degree

This online course is taught in English only.

When you have a first-hand, personal, experiential acquaintance with the Truth, you will be delivered from the power and restrictions of sin and set free to live in righteous, peace and joy in the Holy Ghost! That is what sound theology can do for you!
