A Message from the Chancellor
Students, Friends and Staff,
I welcome you the wonderful family of Freedom Bible College and Seminary
by sharing a few thoughts and highlights about this tremendous ministry.
The vision of Concepts of Freedom
Ministries is broad and vast.
Remembering precisely when
Vicki and I began hearing God speak a special vision of ministry into
our spirits is difficult. Starting as a seemingly insignificant spark,
this vision grew through the years. By 1991 it had grown into a burning
flame in our minds and spirits. It was during that year that we went
into action. Laying aside our personal preferences and walking in faith,
we began to see the picture unfold.
This vision became the life
blood of Concepts of Freedom Ministries, of which Freedom Bible College
and Seminary is a subsidiary.
We have a genuine burden for
ministers, priests, church workers and everyday Christians who desire
a higher education. Because of time constraints, inconvenience,
or financial difficulties, many cannot attend a typical resident Bible
college or seminary. Recognizing these restraints, Vicki and I realized
the need for affordable, resident and nonresident, interdenominational,
Bible colleges and seminaries. That dream seemed so far away. It appeared
to be an unreachable goal. Nevertheless, as always, God provided the solution.
In an almost overnight intervention from the Lord, our dream became a
reality and Freedom Bible College was born. We are now officially known
as Freedom Bible College and Seminary, Inc.
From these beginnings we have
grown until we have students from around the world. Presently, we
have resident campuses across the United States and in several foreign
Our Lord has been faithful
to send God fearing, people loving and faithful men and women to become
a part of the staff of this great ministry. I cannot thank Him enough
for the quality workers He as placed with us as our co-laborers in the
execution of this complex task.

Comments from the Senior Vice President
to Freedom Bible College and Seminary. I am very pleased that you
have expressed an interest in learning more about Christianity for whatever
service God has called you. As you may be aware, FBCS is our ministry.
Educating the world to save the world is more than just a motto, it is
look through these pages, I hope that it is apparent that we are serious
about that goal. Our classes are numerous and our courses are not
the easiest, but we are proud to offer them. We are strong in the
belief that by giving people a more solid Christian educational foundation,
they will better be able to go through the world and spread His word.
we are asked what denomination we are. I hope that from our course
work, you will see that our personal beliefs are not important. Our goal
is to offer an education that is truly interdenominational. I would ask
that you take the time to look at the Freedom Christian Ministry Association
information at the end of this catalog where I share more information on
divisions within the Christian faith. Our goal is to give you information
on Christianity, to give you information on various denominational views
and to give you the tools you need to make your own decisions. Authors
of our courses vary across the board on beliefs, and that is not by accident.

the views you believe are true.

particular. Here are just a few reasons why we are set apart from others.

able to individually list resident branches and affiliate colleges. You
may call the offices to see if there is one near you.

College or Training Center, contact the FBCS general offices. Also,
existing Bible colleges, schools, institutes or other Christian establishments
may apply for affiliate status.
We believe that FBCS is on the cutting edge of contemporary
Christian education. We understand that gaining an education can
be very daunting, and in order to relieve some of that stress, we strive
to afford each student with personal and intimate contact with staff members.
We have a variety of online programs to aid you in getting the support
you need. You could email several different types of tests to our
office, have access to our chaplain as well as the dean of psychology
and dean of undergraduate students, and I myself will be glad to address
any concerns you may have either now or once your studies have begun.

to come to a scenic area in or around Northwest Arkansas in the spring
of each year where we have graduation ceremonies and celebrations.
We also have class rings for those who wish to share with others their educational
two Regional Representative programs, one for part-time volunteers and
one for full-time, self employed representatives. These programs are in
place to reward students who share our ministry with others. If you
share our goal to help others learn more about Christ, this may be what you
also offers a program for Learning Disabled adults. The Freedom Achiever's
Program is designed to work with a pastor or sponsor. The student is assigned
tasks that are within their abilities and upon completion, they are issued
a prestigious certificate from FBCS.

Freedom Bible College and Seminary was
founded for the purpose of making a good, Bible-based education available
to pastors and Christian workers who are not at liberty to leave their
churches or jobs to attend a typical resident college.
The expenses incurred while attending Bible
colleges and seminaries most generally reach into several thousands of
Freedom Bible College and Seminary operates
as a nonprofit institution. Students are charged no more than necessary
to provide the appropriate educational services of distance learning.
Due to changing economic conditions, the institution reserves the right
to revise charges as deemed necessary. However, every effort is made to
keep the cost as low as possible. FBCS offers interest-free payment plans,
but does not participate in federal financial aid programs.
A degree from Freedom Bible College and
Seminary does not come easily. It is true that nothing worthwhile comes
easy. You will be required to work hard and discipline yourself to earn
an accredited degree with FBCS.
When you have completed the required course
work you will have gained in knowledge and wisdom in the truths of the
Word. You will be better equipped to carry out the commission the Lord
has given you.
