    Down to the Final Four! Ready To Decide! Help Me Out!

    I have narrowed it down to these four bible schools for distance learning.

    satsonline

    I believe this is the one that I am going to choose because its affordable; they take the bible seriously; and has great distance learning support. The only thing I am worried about is will American Institutions and or churches recognize this degree in the future because it is out of country?

    globaluniversity

    Another very serious candidate. I still might choose this one because two universities merged together offering over eighty years of combined distance learning experience. Also still have paper type lessons as well; which I would like.

    moody

    I would love to choose this one but I have a feeling from reviews and dealing with the site it looks like they are a little overwhelmed and I am not sure they are on par with their distance learning system. I could be wrong but I would like to heavily consider this choice as well.

    lhbionline

    This one scares me a little bit because sometimes the old saying goes if it is too good to be true; it’s not. Seems like a fantastic deal; the school is supposedly number one; and the theology is great. I just think from reading reviews like moody they are just tapped out. I could be wrong but I would like to heavily consider this option as well.

    Anyhow any input would be great! Look forward to all of your replies. I am very eager to sign up and start my classes. Let the good times roll! Also post any other bible schools that are extremely close to these in price and quality which are accredited; if you have them. If it’s too much please do not bother. Have a wonderful day and God bless!

    Best,
    ChristianMaker

    Since you are not asking for suggestions outside those four I won't offer any. Also I am only familiar with one of those. If you are serious about ministry I would pass by them all. However if you just want some bible background moody would be good enough.

    Bible Colleges! Final Two! Almost There!

    Okay I have narrowed it down to the final Two!

    I have dropped these …

    satsonline

    I am going to drop this one because I am just not positive about their acceptance throughout Churches nationwide. Also they are out of country and customer service I am sure is going to add an extra level of difficulty.

    moody

    I would love to go to this school but to many things just keep getting in the way. I just checked their tuition and it has gone up. Tuition is now 195.00 per credit hour which I know is a great deal but still just a little bit out of my price range.

    The Final Two …

    lhbionline

    I think I am going to choose this one. It’s a great school with great values. And they have created a program that is exactly for the person who is wanting to study the bible from Home and receive credit for it later. I know it might not be the very best; but it is certainly a fantastic option for price and value. What I am looking for while I go to a local community college.

    globaluniversity

    This one is so close to second that it might actually take first before I make my final decision. I like their dedication to paper studies. Good reputation; nice layout; affordable price and accredited. The only thing that bothers me is that it’s not Liberty. I believe Liberty had more of a name out their then “global university”; and I think it would be more respected in the future.

    Summary

    I do not think I can really go wrong with either one. I am leaning towards Liberty because of the name and trust. I could still go either way; but at this moment I believe just prayer and fasting is going to be the only thing left to do. I really appreciate everyone’s help and still look forward to your future comments!

    I've heard that SATS customer service is quite good. Do you plan to put the Liberty Home Bible courses toward a degree at Liberty? If so do you know if there is an additional tuition charge for that? Just curious.

    Yes I would plan to put it towards a degree. I do not believe it is that much at all; a few hundred dollars plus the difference in the extra credits you would probably need I am guessing to graduate.

    SATS service might be up to par; but will their degree be widely accepted?

    On the other school thread you started I got into the cost and credit acceptance of LHBI in greater detail, its more than a few hundred dollars (over a thousand when its all said and done) and requires testing and a BA program in the future to accept the credits which raises the cost substantially. Wilmington may be a better option, and would not dismiss SATS yet....

    Lhbi

    I just completed the LHBI programme and would highly recommend it to anyone seeking a good solid foundation in the Word and (SBC) Baptist Doctrine. :thumbs: I began the course 19 mths ago with a view to personal development but as a newly commissioned deacon I know it will be of greater benefit.
    Content wise the lectures are a bit outdated (the truths of His Word never change) but the professors/instructors; Drs. Harold Willmington, Sumner Wemp, Woodrow Kroll, Carl Diemer, and others rank among the top in their fields and will challenge you and your ideas about Christ and His Church. Being somewhat onesided, as most dist. ed. programmes are, I recommend seeking out a mentor, who can act as a both your sounding board and proctor. I was very fortunate to have a great man of God (ret'd CNBC Pastor) agree to tutor me through the course and he's has been a fantastic resource, and friend.
    I'm not sure if LHBI is where you want be headed if puplit ministry is your goal; Liberty will grant you up to 42 credits under certain circumstances, but you certainly will not have wasted your time or money, and most importantly your relationship with Christ will only be that much the stronger for it.

    Best Wishes and Prayers,
    John
