Academics

Faith Landmarks Bible Institute offers programs designed to help you fulfill your calling in areas of study that equip you for full-time ministry, overseas missions, or serving in your local church.  Learn more through our website about our first and second year programs designed to equip the believer with deeper understanding of God’s Word and practical application. Also, learn about our third program designed to be an advanced program for those sensing a call to full-time ministry with the potential for ordination upon completion.

 The on-line school is designed for students whose work schedules conflict with the onsite schedule and, of course, for those students who live outside of Richmond, Virginia. The onsite school offers the benefit of face-to-face relationship with both the faculty and other students.

The following information on the academic program applies to both schools, though each is handled differently.
