We are dedicated to the purpose of training and educating persons for Christian service. Jesus Christ is the center of all our objectives.

3. What kind of studies does Renewed Hope’s Biblical  Institute offer?

We offer internet training for those in remote locations and classroom studies for those near the RHMBI facility. The courses are interactive for the student and utilize the Bible , and a thorough study guide for every course.

4. How difficult are the courses and how much time is involved?

The basic procedure involves registration for a Biblical  course. After registration is completed you will be given a study guide for the course(s). The study guide questions are designed to force you to understand the intent of the bible author. The study guides have True/False or Multiple Choice quizzes for every reading assignment. Most simply ask you to search the text to find the answer. The Bible  is always our main textbook. The studies are time-intensive and cannot be completed quickly. The idea is not to just "get it over with" but to allow the text to speak to you and equip you for ministry. All courses will have tests.

5. What is included in the course materials?

When you enroll you will be emailed, mailed or given a study guide or a CD(s) that contains the study guide necessary to complete your class. You will need to complete the pre-requisite courses in order to receive an Apostolic Writings (New Testament) or Tanakh (Old Testament) certificate. The courses are all written in Adobe Acrobat Files, DVD or CD formats.

 6. How does the process work for those in remote locations?

We will e-mail or mail you acknowledgement of your enrollment usually within 10 working days (USA only) from the time you enroll. Once you receive your materials you can start working on your course. We advise you to only work on one course at a time and to send it in as soon as it is completed. It is best if you write your answers in a word processing document and send it to us as an e-mail attachment for faster processing. That way you can keep your originals and save the cost of postage. Once you have completed successfully 30 credits you will receive a certificate for the completion of your work. We will keep track of all your progress in our office and have a transcript of all your work. All of our courses are graded on a pass/fail basis.
