bible and theology objectives

Every student at Northpoint majors in Biblical Studies. The Bible is the Word of God, and it is the only standard for faith and practice; therefore, a thorough understanding of the Bible's teaching is of primary importance for human life and education. The Bible and its theological framework form the heart of Northpoint's entire curriculum structure. The Division of Bible and Theology offers students a challenge to approach life and learning from a biblical perspective and stimulates an appreciative love for God and obedience to His revealed will. The design of the curriculum is biblically based, Christ-centered, and ministry-directed. The focus of this integral division provides the essential data to enable each student to form a Christian world-view, to develop an effective Christian life, and to acquire a sound philosophy of ministry.
