For Every Learner, Everywhere – FOR LIFE
Thoroughly Biblical, Apologetic, Transforming
The FaithSearch Bible Learning Center is a Division of FaithSearch International, an evangelical Christian ministry established in 1979 with a mission “to extend the Gospel with evidence to all peoples everywhere.”
Bible Learning Center Perspective
To Think Like Jesus
Jesus Christ is the incarnation of God to earth. His revelation in the Bible is the foundation for establishing a biblical Christian worldview – to think like Jesus
“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15
To Act Like Jesus
1. Tell Everyone About Me
The burden on His heart was clear. His parting words at the ascension were captured in Acts 1:8. “And you will be My witnesses, telling people about Me everywhere…!”
2. Feed My Sheep
The resurrected Jesus said to Peter in John 21:15, “‘Simon, son of John, do you love me more than all else?’ ‘Yes Lord,’ he answered, ‘you know that I love you.’ ‘Then feed my sheep,’ He said.”

Bible Learning Center Strategy
The Learning Center’s ultimate goal is evangelism, accomplished by maturing believers and equipping them to effectively reach the lost in their networks of influence. This is the outcome that the Center desires for every student.
Individuals can learn at their own pace, first considering the core courses, and then selecting from a variety of Bible book or topical studies to fill in the gaps in their Biblical knowledge and understanding.
Tools for Both Students and Teachers
Throughout the curriculum, the approach is two-fold:
1. Make it “Bible for Life” – relevant content to be put into life practice, and...
2. Answer the “why questions” of the Christian faith – apologetic evidence.
The courses offered are drawn from the vast resources tested and used in ministry by FaithSearch since its establishment in 1979. Most have been written or recorded by President Don Bierle during nearly five decades of ministry service.

We will also help with technical questions and issues related to getting started and progressing through the courses. Dr. Don has written guidance throughout each course and adds an occasional video clip with encouragement.
How much time do I have to complete a course?
There is no time restriction. When you enroll in the BLC it gives you access to all available courses. You then register for a course of your choice. The software will keep track of your progress as you complete activities in the course. When you return after an hour, a day, a week or longer, you can continue where you left off.
