A Message from the President
are multitudes of individuals who would like to further their Biblical training
and education. What is stopping them? It may be a financial
roadblock, or they may be like so many people who hold full-time jobs.
This leaves limited time in their schedules for attending the traditional,
Christian college or seminary. Many hunger for more of the Bible,
and a deeper relationship with Jesus. Lay pastors and ministers,
who may have been positioned as leaders by the Lord, may not have had a
firm academic foundation or may lack the needed credentials. Where
can they find fulfillment?
For the past six years Christ Fellowship has taken strategic steps, in
providing The Way Of The Cross, which is as series of courses and phases
individuals may take to help them grow toward leadership within the local
church. As we strive to continue on the Way of the Cross,
Dr. Debra Schwartz
we expand the vision by training and releasing men and women
into the five-fold ministry to spread the gospel. We recognize the
need to take progressive
steps toward providing additional leadership training for men and women
who desire to serve the Lord, reach out to the lost, andconsistently mature in their personal
walk with Christ. One of the keys in fulfilling that vision is the
establishing the Liberty Center Bible Institute. This will be a hands-on
Bible training center that will allow the student to put faith into action
by offering practical application opportunities while earning advanced diplomas.
We hope to partner our students with existing ministries, churches, and organizations
in a unified effort to reach the lost, educate the body and multiply our
efforts toward revival.
We desire to bring the knowledge and the love
of the Lord to the World. Jesus tells us to know the truth and the
truth will make us free. Yet often in seminary settings, there is an emphasis
on academics, (truth) but there are few, culturally relevant field experiences
offered to balance the education process. The ever-unfolding vision
of training leaders is to offer a quality, inter-denominational Bible Training
Center in the Tri-State area for all Christians. That vision has now
become a reality and for this we give God all the praise.
As a ministry of Christ Fellowship, the training center is located
at the new Liberty Center on Elizabeth Avenue, which is located in the heart
of the historic city of Elizabeth. It is more than just a Bible study course offered by a local church. We are a member of the Accrediting Commission
International, a private accrediting body (private accreditating
bodies are not recognized by the U.S. Department of Education) and are a
branch training center of Freedom Bible College and Seminary, located in Rogers Arkansas.
The Liberty Center Bible Institute will allow students the opportunity
to earn an advanced diploma through our program. This program has
been designed to offer anointed teaching and training through a host of
Biblical courses. Students attend classes one or two times a week.
The rest of the time their work is done in the comfort of their own home
and in practical application. This flexible plan, called, Assisted
Academics, will allow a serious student to complete a four-year diploma
or certificate program in two years. Those who could never attend
full-time seminary because of full-time job responsibilities will find this
home study pace most beneficial.
