Welcome to Destiny Covenant Ministries Bible Institute! We are excited about offering classes that will enhance your walk with the Lord! We are also excited that you will be able to take classes virtually! Therefore we have the capacity to reach people throughout the United States and the world! Our goal is to help others be excited about the Word of God and have the Word of God activated in our lives. Daniel 11:32b: says “ . . . but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. Ephesians 6:10: “Finally my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.” We are transforming believers one person at a time to be strong in the Lord and in doing exploits for the Kingdom of God.
Our mission is to strategically train and transform believers in Christ to know the Word of God, and to do the Word of God in their lives. It is our goal to reproduce productive believers in the Body of Christ who will go and do the Great Commission. Our foundational scripture is: 2 Peter 3:18: “But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
Our vision is to provide a place where believers in Christ can learn and grow in the Word of God. We envision a campus both physically and virtually where believers are learning about the Word of God and how it relates to their personal God-ordained purposes through study in the Word of God and other Christian based literature. Our goal is to have a contextualized learning atmosphere, utilizing various dimensions of learning in helping the student to grow and become.
As an extension of Destiny Covenant Ministries, we are helping to bring forth its vision of Evangelism, Education, Edification, and Empowerment.
At Destiny Covenant Ministries Bible Institute we value:
The following courses will be offered in Spring 2015:
Description of Courses
Basic Foundations of Christian Living
In Basic Foundations of Christian Living we will cover key areas that are foundational to the Christian Believer’s walk with the Lord. Some of the areas that will be covered are: (1) Basic Principles of Salvation; (2) Basic Foundations in the Word of God (3) Basic Foundations in the Holy Spirit; (4) Basic Foundations of Faith; (5) Basic Foundations of Prayer, Praise and Worship; (6) Basic Foundations of Understanding and Activating Your Purpose.
In Holy Spirit we will briefly cover the Holy Spirit’s work in the Old Testament, and concentrate on the Holy Spirit’s work in the New Testament and in the present day. We will cover: (1) the personality of the Holy Spirit; (2) the release of the Holy Spirit; (3) the Fruit of the Spirit; (4) why Tongues?; (5) the Gifts of the Holy Spirit; and (6) The Holy Spirit activated in You, the Believer!; and (7) Major Waves of the Holy Spirit in the 19th through 21st Centuries.
Introduction to the Bible
Introduction to the Bible is just what it says: It is an Introduction. Although designed for the “new believer,” this class will also benefit believers who have been walking with the Lord for a while. It will generally introduce the Bible, and provide helpful hints on studying and researching the Bible. In addition, the general purpose/theme of each book in the Bible will be covered. In addition key dispensations will be discussed, including the Intertestamental period. Other helpful information will also be provided.
In Spiritual Formation we will take an Integrated Approach for Personal and Relational Wholeness. We will explore how the human person develops in seven primary dimensions, including the spirit (the most critical), emotions, relationships, intellect, vocation, physical health and stewardship of our resources – referring to how we handle God’s creation, money, possessions, and time – and how these seven dimensions interrelate as we mature as followers of Jesus. We will define the Seven Christian Spiritual Formation Dimensions and examine how these can be integrated in our lives as we personally walk with the Lord and walk out His purposes in the world through us.Lord
In Five-Fold Ministry we will use Ephesians 4:11-16 as our “privotal” scripture: And he gave some, apostles, and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors, and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ; Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ; From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
We will briefly cover historical trends that have blinded the eyes of Christendom towards five-fold ministry and its recent unveiling in the Body of Christ through the work of the Holy Spirit and the various reformations that have surfaced within the past 100 (plus) years. We will go through each ascension gift and define and describe its various functions in the Body of Christ on today. We will also briefly discuss apostolic teams and how they interact with God’s ministry in the church.
